Loads of content updated regularly throughout the day with themes for each day that draw from some of the most interesting interior design sources on Instagram. Nicely curated and a great read - or just nice to pop up in your feed.
Absolute glamour from a top tier Australian design firm. Loads of glorious details using marble, chrome and all things slick and high end. There’s references to old school glamour and deco elements, there are creations that might fall into line with the Empire Lines style that’s current at the moment but the entirety of the folio is worth pawing over for its timeless and glamorous appeal.
Loads of amazingly curated design from throughout the world. Vogue Living magazine gets thousands of submissions, some that don’t make it to print but this is the outlet for all of the great work that comes the way of the editorial team to get some exposure. Newest design trends and products, lots of materials and global great work.
An Australian interior design super star, Mim Design, is a contemporary practice that amazes with beautifully considered joinery and material palettes in a super chic and ultra-considered manner. View the work with a critical eye to see what makes great design great, the detailing, the materials and the choices of hardware and furniture all make MimDesignStudio a great design inspiration.
Life would be dull if it wasn’t for greenery and William Dangar is one of the best landscapers around with a very lush and green Instagram feed. With lots of images from their projects featuring some of the country’s most exclusive homes and their gardens. It’s a great place to get some tranquillity and refinement in garden form.
Tasmanian company, Luc Design, features interesting designer furniture and design inspiration. Look at the individual pieces or the settings they’re found in and you’ll find something to inspire.
With 1.7m followers, Homeadore is a curated trove of inspiration featuring all styles and types of interiors. The best way to view any inspirational photographs of great work is to dissect what it is that makes it great, from the colours, materials, compositions, scale, lighting or architectural detail. Homeadore has it all and it is worth taking a close look at many of the rooms to learn what makes great interiors great.
Their bio states simply ‘Design Excellence’ and it couldn’t be truer. Melbourne based Carr Design is an interior and architectural firm that creates beautiful and simplified buildings and interiors using a contemporary palette and bold forms. Contemporary interiors and architecture at its best.
Haydesign is a resource of the products available from Hay Design, simple objects with contemporary finishes and forms. It’s great to view what is coming out of Europe and the minds of the established Danish designers who create the world of Hay.
A lovely place to view traditional details, handles, hardware and all things that work in a traditional home. Lots of inspiration and application of product and a great place to see all of the beautiful and contemporary takes on traditional detailing.
A search for Marcio Kogan will furnish you with image upon image of beautiful, stark and monolithic, modern architecture creating drama from the often concrete and timber structures that relate beautifully to their landscapes. Always a place to get lost in detail and design.
Whilst not a page or board per se, a search for Christian Liaigre will show you some of the most refined and sophisticated interiors the world has seen. From yachts to luxury homes, the detail, simplicity of materials and palette in the work of Christian Liaigre is best described as genius.
Vincent Van Duyson
Simple, stark and achingly beautiful, Vincent Van Duyson’s body of work is substantial not only in volume but in effect. Large, dramatic spaces with bold uses of timber, amazing architectural forms and simply beautiful spaces. A master of using a pared back palette to create intrigue and interest.
