Instagram stories are quickly becoming my favorite medium because it’s so raw and real and usually uncut unpolished and filled with the middle of projects where I do a lot of my learning. And apparently find a lot of inspiration too. My screenshot folder is FILLED with Instagram story captures that I look back on and I thought it would be fun to share 10 standouts today from 10 different people.
1. I love this peek at a bathroom @simplygrove shared. I screen shotted it for that wall trim, but I staying for the black toilet, and those veiny floors–wish so badly I could see more of that sink situation!
2. Jenny Komenda has been killing it on stories lately and I wanted to share this screen shot for a few reasons. First was the bedroom she put together. I am obsessed with the visible wood grain coming through on the paneling–not to mention the color. But ALSO, this format she is using where she is talking and there is text and a visual of what she is referring to and a call to action–all in one story–it’s good. (You can use the unfold app to do this!)
3. Room For Tuesday is in Europe and the stories of her trip are so inspiring. This floor stopped me in my tracks. It’s black and white, yes, but do you see the Xes the black tiles are making? So cool!
3. I had to capture this fireplace situation from @verandainterior because it’s so clean with a lot of warmth. I’m so happy that completely light and stark interiors are being broken up by character and deeper colors and materials. I also feel like this peek is a great way to update tray ceilings that maybe have to be there. Square them off and add some beams! Taking so many notes on this one.
4. House of Brinson and the rich contrast trim and that turned leg side table and the portrait art. There’s not a prettier vignette.
5. @Philip_or_flop’s garage storage has us jealous! Those shelves for wood are on our must-have list now for sure!
6. This story from @trentonmak (not a design account) was sent to me by a follower for dining room inspiration and WAS IT EVER! From the ceiling to the arched walls and floors. I even thought–maybe we carry the white room the living room into the dining space! But I want to make sure it feels warm and intimate, too. The chandeliers–be still my heart.
7. Can you believe I have never been to Waco? But I’m admiring from afar. @Joannagaines shared this view of their new coffee shop, Magnolia Press, and my heart skipped a beat. The paneling is s beautiful and I love the traditional wood tones, lighting and that upholstery. I can’t tell if the wall color is off white (tan?) but I kind of hope it is!
8. Snapped this from Amber Interiors because I was trying to figure out a way to integrate a bench situation into our entry without it being the main thing–still want a console. And I LOVED this example of one tucked next to the stairs. And with the perfect textiles and paneling.
9. Pretty sure I got this from @jakealexanderarnold whom I get ENDLESS inspiration from daily. I think I’m really into this kind of contrasted paneling lately–mixed with a deep tan, I’m dead. This is just a kind of place I want to hang out in always.(just realized this is the third deep teal paneled wall I’m sharing–what does it mean?!)
10. Here’s another beam in a recessed ceiling inspiration–but this time from einteriors.design. I need more beams in my life.
Hopefully this gave you all some inspiration as well. Either in the form of design ideas or new faces to follow!
