The most adorable animals on the internet have something to teach you. They are ready to be recognized for their abilities beyond just garnering hundreds of likes—it’s time to salute them as decorating pioneers. If you can look past the wet noses and fluffy ears, there are design lessons to learn from these Instagram superpets. Let our favorite fuzzy and feathered friends show you how to stylize your space:
(Above) Limit Your Color Palette
Layer on Textured Linens in Shades of White
Raccoons might have a reputation for eating trash, but Pumpkin the Raccoon (@pumpkintheracoon) has an aesthetic that’s decidedly shabby chic. Pumpkin proves that tone-on-tone doesn’t have to be boring—just mix many textures to achieve zen couch vibes.
Go Bold With Your Door
A basic white door is just that—basic—and Geordi La Corgi (@lacorgi) is anything but. Punch up the plain with a nearly neon hue. Bonus if your bike is in a coordinating chic shade.
Blend Metallics With Raw Wood
Adorable guinea pig Fuzzberta (@fuzzberta) balances the high-glamour of a metallic wallpaper with organic materials, like a live edge wood surface. Wood chips also work.
Accessorize With Easy Care Plants
Toy poodle Logan (@loganslook) likes to bring life to a #shelfie with a mini-cactus or succulent.
Belly Up to a Barcart
Treat yourself to a place to mix drinks with a swanky barcart. Toast (@toastmeetsworld) always prefers to imbibe with friends.
Create a Cozy Space With Black
Perhaps because of his muted coloring, Camp the Pigeon(@campthepigeon) isn’t afraid to pick a strong hue for a small space.
Lucite Is Clearly a Trend
Paint Can Transform
Make It Marquee Lights
It’s not just an Instagram filter: it’s a classic pattern that’s high impact—especially when you coordinate your sleep mask, a la rescue dog Toast (@toastmeetsworld).
Make Your Mood Board a Work of Art
Your cluttered mind is incredibly stylish when inspiration images are tacked up with chic washi tape. Here Lionel (@lionelthehog) channels a ‘60s femme vibe.
Throw Down a Flotaki Rug
These textural wonders are design staples because they add interest and a great place for French bulldogs (@chloetheminifrenchie) to take pooch snoozes.
Actually Use Your Fine China
Lady Gaga’s dog Asia Kinney (@missasiakinney) believes everyday is an occasion to break out the special plates. A picnic to read magazines becomes an elegant affair with the addition of champagne, gilded plates, and piece of quartz to keep it all from blowing away.
Hot Color: Yellow
Marnie’s (@marniethedog) tongue is wagging for lemon-hued pillows. To be fair, her tongue is always wagging, but she’s also really into this hot color of the moment.
Lionel The Hedgehog (@lionelthehog) recognizes the perfection of a graphic tile pattern in many a #selfeet; it’s even better because he has four. #ihavethisthingwithfloors
Organize Collections by Color
Try a Teepee
Tents are the new dog beds and Chloe (@chloetheminifrenchie) is on trend.
