— -- Are you sick of staring at that tattered red couch or really want to throw out your old rug? If you're thinking of refreshing your home, finding inspiration is now easier than ever thanks to Instagram. Professional designers and home improvement stores alike are uploading their favorite finds on the ‘gram to get your home improvement wheels turning.
Stylist Em Henderson is great to follow on Instagram for those who love florals, bright rooms and womanly accents. She even has great inspiration for your kids' rooms. (Think: Chalkboard mural!) The author of the New York Times-bestselling book, Styled: Secrets for Arranging Rooms, from Tabletops to Bookshelves, even has adorable 'grams of her two children.
Your favorite home improvement store is even in on the fun. But don't worry, HomeGoods is not clogging up your timeline with what the store thinks is best. Instead, their Instagram account shares the best in customer photos. What has developed are ideas that you can surely replicate. HomeGoods is great at highlighting seasonal room inspirations and looks for any room in your home.
J. Crew menswear director, Frank Muytjens, is not only fashionable but on his Instagram account, @fmuytjens, he has curated a collection of inspirations for any man cave. Muytjens also has an eye for the rustic thanks to 'grams from his cottage in Hillsdale, New York.
Follow Liz Marie Galvan, a mother to six children and military wife, for rustic home inspiration. The 26-year-old Michigan native now lives in North Carolina, which may play a big part in her style aesthetic. Although Galvan is big on Do-It-Yourself projects, like turning an old basket into a holiday card holder, some of her finds may not be for the messy family. She has a thing for white furniture and light carpets.
If you're not afraid of bold prints, and accents such as purple chairs and yellow lamps, Nick Olsen is your guy. The New York-based designer has a knack for mixing antique pieces with modern art. And if you look at his 'gram, wondering where in the world did he pick up that piece, you're not alone. Olsen creates a worldly vibe to his rooms that somehow work.
