Instagram Inspiration: Seven Interior Designers To Follow


             @luxereportdesigns

Social media can be a lot at to keep up with at times, but my love for Instagram has only increased since the last time I wrote about it.  Whenever I post my own interior design photos (including the progress on our new house) I can't help but notice that these seem to get the biggest and best reaction. So, with this in mind, I thought I'd share just a few of the professional interior designers that I follow on a daily basis. I love the constant stream of beauty and inspiration at my finger tips, especially on a Monday.

This and That

We've started introducing some movies from our childhood to our kids...both the (original) Willie Wonka and The Bad News Bears were big hits.  The Sting? Not so much.  I'm hoping to download Breaking Away this weekend. This movie was one of my all time faves!

Scooped up these chic little studs over at Baublebar- they have a great promotion going on today: 20% off 1 item with code FALL20 and 30% off 2 or more with code FALL30.

Currently stalking the entire new fall Nate Berkus home collection at Target-especially this fun little round box.

Speaking of Nate, last night I had the pleasure of hearing Nate Berkus speak at the Better Homes and Gardens Stylemakers workshop. It was a very inspiring day in New York, the only downside being utter exhaustion today...TGIF!

Paradise Is A Walled Garden

With our new house comes new landscaping opportunities and ideas...the fall being a great time to get started.  We're currently in the process of putting up fencing ~ due to the deer population and for pool safety. As our new property starts to take shape, I love the idea of adding ivy and espaliers to soften the wood fencing.

We first put this concept to the test at our place in Florida (last image below) where the ivy grows so fast you can almost see it happening.  I'm hoping we can achieve a similar look up here in the north...

Fall Outfit Inspiration

I'm up to my eyeballs here in paint, wallpaper and kitchen hardware samples, working with Muse Interiors in an effort to get our new house "move in ready" by the end of October.  I've been Instagramming the design progress, but every time I sit down to write a full blog post about our new home, I either get so stressed out over all the details that need to happen between now and the end of next month or so emotional over leaving this house that we've loved so much since October 2000, that I end up abandoning the whole idea!

The other day, in an effort to calm down and re-boot, I took part in some retail therapy. Scroll through to see what I came home with (using the above as my inspiration)...a little leopard, a some black leather, a few basics . I still feel overwhelmed, but there's something to be said for that shopping serotonin rush!
