The designs range from simple DIY backyard upgrades to classy dinner party decorations. Beyond classic home decor, they also share gluten-free recipes as well as RV interior renovations, so there’s something for everyone.

Mandi Guber calls herself a “fearless DIYer,” so that should give you a hint as to the magnitude of projects she’s willing to take on. As an overarching project, she uses the account to track her journey transforming a 1928 mercantile shop into her dream home. She also shares all of the smaller design projects she undertakes along the way. Her unique style also features a lot of plants that give her designs a touch of life. This is a designer with a clear individual style, mixing features like a paint by numbers mural, a living plant wall, and retro furniture

We love this account because Mandi’s approach is impressive but also doable. Even if you’re not a huge fan of DIY, you’re bound to find inspiration from her designs or, at the least, just have a good time looking at the satisfying remodels.

Shauna lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and runs a blog and website (with the same handle) in tandem with this Instagram page. Her page features interior design inspiration from the home she shares with her family. As Shauna decorates their newest house, she shares tips to create an elegant, modern look.

These designs exude class, but none of them are flashy or pretentious. It’s a good template to follow if you like the modern aesthetic but still want the rooms to feel cozy. To achieve this, she incorporates earthy colors as well as a variety of patterns and textures to add depth and warmth. Shauna’s use of lighting is also worth noting, as she shows how to effectively illuminate spaces without sacrificing artistry.


Erin Francois boasts that creating a “Handmade Modern Home” is her labor of love. While renovating her 1930’s Tudor duplex, Francois posts vignettes on her page focused on DIY and interior styling. Francois’ style features lots of colors, small accents, and tons of simple hacks. Whether you utilize these tips or jot them down for later, @francois_et_moi has something to teach you.

We love Francois’ careful blending of modern features and vintage furniture. She’s not afraid to mix patterns, ensuring the house is elegant but also fun and practical for families with kids. Her husband and children are frequent guest stars on her page, so you know her designs are family approved.

Unlike the other accounts above, this mother-daughter duo (Megan Papworth and Dawn Terry) spends their time decorating other people’s homes. They pull the energy of the coast into contemporary homes by incorporating sand-colored furniture, white pillows, and touches of greenery. They also share more dramatic designs that feature black trim, unique doors, and architectural furniture.

As a bonus, you don’t have to worry about scouring the internet for a cool lamp you see in the back of one of their posts. Many of the items they use in their designs are available for purchase through the account, so you can easily add them to your own home.

We have five awesome bathroom design trend ideas that you will love -- keep reading to find out more from design experts about adding one (or more) of them to your home’s decor.
It seems like technology advances more every year, and 2023 will be no exception. Dave Adams, the VP of marketing, entertainment, and home office furniture at BDI, said, "You can expect technology to have a home in every room of the house."

Not only will smart home items, such as lightbulbs controlled by a central hub, continue to pop up in rooms like the bathroom, but expect to see more technology incorporated into items like showers and faucets. You don’t think you need a smart shower until you experience the luxury that is stepping into a preheated and steamy shower on a cold morning.
Home spa
Carrie Schulz, the head of design at Block Renovation, told us that an increasing trend in home bathroom design is to create a home spa -- a calming, warm space where you can relax. She suggested homeowners "work with natural materials, soft textures, and layered neutrals" to achieve this. A towel warmer in the corner will round out the day spa feel.

Don’t worry about matching
Gone are the days when you must worry about matching colors and textures inside your home. This is excellent news for anyone who always felt their personality was much less tidy than their home’s vibe. Jon Sanborn, the co-founder of SD House Guys, suggests "mixing different metals throughout the house to create a more unique and interesting look." Think brass hardware in the kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Just don't get carried away -- paying no mind to matching colors could get dangerous.

This is the simple way to incorporate sustainable design when remodeling your home
Do your part for the environment when considering your next remodel
Kitchen remodel plans

When it comes time to renovate your home, there are a lot of decisions to make. Designing your space with your personal style in mind is just the beginning. Cost, DIY vs. hiring a contractor, and schedule all come into play. But what if you also want to incorporate sustainable home designs into your remodel? Considering the environmental impact when making design choices doesn’t have to be difficult at all. Check out some simple ways to remodel sustainability below.

Home design trends have moved toward sustainability and eco-friendly -- recycled materials, low-energy lighting and appliances, organic fabrics and materials, and high-quality indoor air. Katherine Cohen, associate creative director at Interface and FLOR says this means many people are now selecting products from companies and brands that prioritize sustainability and offer environmentally friendly products. And while this may mean paying a higher price for specific products, many people now consider this extra cost a built-in expense of living responsibly.
Reuse, recycle
If you’re worried about cost or remodeling on a budget, don’t worry -- you can still remodel sustainably without breaking the bank. Repurpose, reuse, recycle, salvage, and reimagine your way into environmentally conscious home design. Use reclaimed wood for floors or a bed frame, reuse cabinets and light fixtures when possible, and buy pre-owned decor from garage sales or local secondhand shops.
Buy responsibly
If you’re concerned with the environment, one way to do your part is to cut down on the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) you’re responsible for. VOCs harm the environment by creating smog and also pollute indoor air. Check for brands that have options with no VOCs, or at least go with a brand that has less than 5g/L of VOCs. You can also look into buying appliances that are better for the environment, such as a tankless water heater.
