1. Will Taylor: @brightbazaar

Will Taylor’s blog, Bright Bazaar, promises “make you smile style,” and his Instagram lives up to the mantra. Revel in an onslaught of colorful shots that aren’t the slightest bit bizarre. Will loves to live in the moment: during the summer, his ‘grams were full of blues and yellows. Now that it’s fall, followers are treated to nostalgic autumnal tones.

An ’80s brick home seems like an odd choice for a color-lover—but Tash manages to pick just the right bold colors to turn the brown shades contemporary. Her cheerful space is a lovely change of pace from today’s beloved white-painted brick. One of the best examples of her clever design: the smart yellow accents in the kitchen, transforming an otherwise-dark space.

3. Nicole Gibbons: @nicolegibbonsstyle

Nicole Gibbons founded Clare Paint, and it’s clear she knows her color. Gibbons’ Instagram may not be the bold explosion of so! much! color! you’ll find on other designers’ feeds—but she’s an expert at making a curated palette shine. From perfect mint walls to color-coordinated bookshelves, she has an eye for clever colors.

4. Sarah: @_sare_xo

Sarah’s perfected the art of choosing luscious, draping plant — and choosing colors to pair with them. Too often, we rely on pothos and ivies and succulents for the home’s “burst of color,” but this so-bright Instagram feed proves that bright pops of neon match perfectly with nature.

5. Katie Kime: @katie_kime

Graphic patterns are Katie Kime’s specialty, so it makes sense her Instagram would be chock full of bold, entrancing colors. Nurse your next wallpaper crush—or even fantasize about new, show-stopping leggings—with a scroll through the colorful patterns showcased on her feed.

6. Tina Bousu: @eclectic_twist

Is there such a thing as too much color? Tina Bousu is trying to find out—but she sure hasn’t found the limit yet. Her boho home pulls together teal, hot pink, yellows and more. Yet the result feels pitch-perfect, and not at all over the top. Good look stopping yourself from daydreaming about her cavernous living room.

7. Nia Renteria: @nia_renteria

Nia’s Japanese home brings a hippie-inspired feel to modern bohemian decor. She’s fond of stunning broad swaths of color—like walls painted dreamy teal or evocative mustard-yellow. While it may not seem like soft Millennial pink accents would match Nia’s bold walls, she pulls off the combination beautifully.

8. Justina Blakeney: @justinablakeney

Justina Blakeney is the queen—and creator—of jungalow style. Soak up her impeccable taste through her curated Instagram feed. Whether it’s her shiny emerald subway tile kitchen backsplash or her rattan furniture, you’re sure to come away with a few inspired ideas for your own home.

9. Kelly Wearstler: @kellywearstler

What list of colorful Instagram feeds would be complete without the queen of color herself, Kelly Wearstler? See the world through her eyes: Wearstler finds beauty in everything from crown molding to old ruins—and she’s blessed with an impeccable ability to take beautiful photographs of everything she finds.

10. Kelli Collins: @mango_manor

Kelli Collins’ Mango Manor takes Florida cool to the next level. The home may be stuffed with bright colors, wall-to-wall murals and lush greenery, but Collins ensures the space feels carefully curated. Breezy palms and plants imbue the manor with a tropical feel that’s mirrored throughout the color palette.

11. Lissi: @oxfordone

If you like your colors very, very vivid, hit the “Follow” button on Lissi’s Instagram now. Enjoy a vibrant feed filled with shockingly yellow chairs, hot-hot-hot pink sofas, teal table legs and a red-hot headboard that would feel at home in Santa’s workshop. But despite the extreme variety of ultra-neon colors, Lissi’s home feels cozy and comfortable—and we’re super jealous.
