Design and Lifestyle Instagram//Bloggers - New and Old Faves

Shelter-ing in place has brought on more time scrolling through Instagram for me. I love looking at some of my fave Instagram Influencers AND I love even more finding new people to follow...

If you know me personally or have followed Dashing Trappings' Instagram feed for any amount of time you know there are Interior Design Influencers // Lifestyle Bloggers that I've always loved: 

The English Room - Holly Phillips

Y'all know I freak out over her Dress to Room Pairings AND her Artist Spotlight Series!!

Lisa Mende Design

First of all, Lisa is the kindest human (and Meredith College grad) but I love how she breaks down what interior design trends // inspo is currently being seen at each market, show houses and in general.

I wanted to give a shout out to my dear friend @officialkellyoneal who happens to be featured in this gorgeous room by @ibbdesign which is owned by another dear friend @designershay and her mom. Kelly is an amazing artist, but more than that an amazing human. He is always lifting up, motivating and doing his part to make life better! Pop over to see his brilliant work @officialkellyoneal @design_legacy I know you will fall down a rabbit hole if you don’t know him already. Also check out @designershay for some colorful and amazing interiors! She is another one of my dear friends, whom I can always count on gor uplifting words of wisdom. Isn’t it nice to have friends you know are always there in thick or thin? Thanks for being those kind of friends!! 💗💗💗 Art: @officialkellyoneal Interior Design : @ibbdesign . . . #color #art #originalart #abstractart #homedecor #green #livingroom #ibbdesign #shaygeyer #kellyoneal #lisamendedesign

Julianne Taylor Style 

JuJu brings it EVERY DAY!!  Her personal style and joy always come through in her posts. Not only is she the founder of Taylor Burke Home but she is a consultant for creative businesses as well. I love running into her in person as well because what you see on Instagram is who she is!


Pencil and Paper Co.

Gen Sohr is Southern Cool Girl chic. She's not only a designer but also a tastemaker and her ability to mix high and low so seamlessly blows my mind all the time. She is so, so cool-girl chic!


Tori Mellott

Tori is not only the style director of Schumacher and brings the high design to her gram but she is real and shares glimpses of her life with her twin daughters. I love her realness.

I’m super into balance these days.

Jamie Meares

Jamie is SO Freaking Cool, and by that I mean she's a badass! Her style is beyond and although the word authentic gets thrown around too much Jamie seems to be living her most authentic life. I love checking out her latest fashion and design picks. She is living in COLOR!

Mary Hollis Huddleston - mrssouthernsocial

Delegate is her mantra and I'm here for it. This is not a design blog but Mary's closet confessions have made me spit out my rosé as she is telling of her life from kids, to party planning, to everything. When Nashville got hit by the tornadoes earlier this spring she was REAL about how it affected her family. She was so honest and I adored her even more.


Cristin Cooper

Greenville, SC-based blogger // Influencer  - I began following Cristin when her blog was the Southern Style Guide (wayy back in the day) her whole feed has expanded since then into a great guide for makeup, fashion, travel, real-life... she's also got a dedicated home feed.  I love her #fancyfridays currently and I'm here for it because I need to wear clothes at least once a week.

Happy Monday!! How was everyone’s weekend?!? We cleaned, cleaned and cleaned some more. Planted some flowers, organized, and finally put away Christmas decorations stacked in the basement 😂. My house has never been this clean (as in organized) and dirty (as in children) at the same time. Today I’m focused on trying to work, plant a few more flowers & maintain peace & sanity around here. We’ve picked some words we’re going to focus on... Love (be sweet to each other), Joy (have a happy heart and don’t whine) & Patience (don’t expect mommy to do things by yelling my name repeatedly. So far it’s working bc instead of yelling “JUST WAIT A SECOND” I’m yelling “ PATIENCE!!!”. I’ve also taught the girls how to do laundry... (see stories). Have a great Monday everybody!!

If you aren't following them... do so now... I promise you'll thank me later! From extremely good style, laugh out loud moments, to just being real -  I love each of these Instagram accounts so so much!!

But I want to introduce you to a few that I've found recently and am really enjoying: 

Living with Landyn (yes I know I'm the last human to follow her... :))

Wife, Mom, Entrepreneur - her Instagram feed is full of home, personal, everything style! She's getting it done on the daily. I love how even with all of her business happenings, her family is still her #1 priority.  She's awesomesauce! 


Whitney Durham Interiors

I love finding new interior designers to follow... When I came across Whitney Durham I basically stalked through her entire feed. The Atlanta based designer's use of color and patterns speak to me, so so much!! Love!!


Lindsay Coral Harper - lchinteriors

Rich and Layered looks run deep on Lindsay Coral Harper's Instagram. This NYC based designer brings a modern touch to traditional design. So so good.


Diana Rose Spier

Bright and happy with accessible finds for those that love interior decor. Her feed has a light and joyful feel that I'm loving currently when the world can seem uncertain and strange. 


Patricia Mae Maristch

PR Boss and Stylish Blogger Patricia's feed gives me decorating, gift and lifestyle tips that are fun and light. I get lots of do-able ideas from her! So happy!!
