Design Inspiration from the Hm Instastylists of 2019

design inspiration

We’ve been featuring Hm Instastylists for two years and it’s amazing how quickly trends change in such a short time! When we first started featuring our stylish customers, farmhouse was the prevalent design style. And it is still going strong! However, we are seeing a lot more minimalism, transitional style and modern style (and modern takes on just about every style). Our customers are amazing sources of design inspiration and we are always checking Instagram to see what you are  doing with your space!

We’ve gathered the five Instastylists who have really been impressing us lately on Instagram. Dive in for some truly awesome design inspiration!

5 Hm Instastylists of 2019


A post shared by Amanda Mae (@stateofpretty) on

Amanda is the stylist behind @stateofpretty. Her feed is full of fresh ideas for modern and contemporary styles with some transitional anchors. We love this post because it features a new take on the upholstered headboard in a light tufted fabric. The elegant balance between the pastel palette and gold accents (with a pop of greenery!) is perfect for spring!

Mel’s Instagram is all about home decor, thrifting and DIY. She frequently features her Jonathan Louis sofa from Hm styled with lush modern organic accents and accessories. We love Mel’s earthier yet refined take on modern style!

Unfortunately, we no longer carry Mel’s sofa but we do carry a similar one!

We are in love with Abby’s Instagram! She’s an interior designer with a keen eye for mixing and matching modern and contemporary pieces and throwing in the perfect accessories. She’s the master at adding a bold pop of color in an otherwise neutral space, pairing bold contemporary art with modern furniture and generally making spaces shine.

She’s featured a custom Smith Brothers Chesterfield sofa from us so we’re showing you all of our Chesterfield sofas so you can also get that rich, classic style!

Ashley is in the process of renovating her 114-year old Iowa farmhouse- talk about a project! She’s definitely staying true to the original farmhouse design of the house with a few modern updates (and Hm decor!) that make it feel fresh and new. We love the hanging light fixtures and gallery wall in the dining room.

Farmhouse design is definitely evolving in a modern direction!

We are leaning into the minimalist look that is growing in popularity on the ‘gram. Clean lines, soothing whites and creams and the rich accent of a plant (live or fake, it’s up to you!). Lauren’s style is all minimal ornamentation with warm wood finishes and rich materials and textures. It’s simply chic!
