5 interior design bloggers you need to follow in 2020
We all want to have a home that looks great for visitors as well as being a comfortable space in which to spend our days.
These days, we can get a lot of interior design inspiration from the internet. Influencers on channels including Pinterest and Instagram amass thousands upon thousands of followers with their aesthetic interiors. Think chic lighting, on-trend prints, cosy throws and unique touches that make their homes stand out from the crowd.
So, who are the interiors designers that you need to follow in 2020? Here we’ve picked five of our favourites…
Like your interior design a little bit off-kilter? Let us introduce you to Swoon Worthy, aka Kimberley Duran. Kimberley’s boho chic Edwardian home is bright, cheerful, and completely unique. She’s a great person to follow if you want to add touches to your rooms that brighten your mood whenever you step through the door. It’s all done on a budget too, so you don’t need to worry that recreating her home in yours will cost the big bucks. Kimberley/Swoon even comes recommended by the Telegraph!

Fabric of My Life
And now for something that’s completely at the other end of the scale. Opposed to the bright, block colours of Swoon Worthy, our next recommendation is Kate Baxter, the Manchester-based designer behind Fabric of My Life. Kate’s aesthetic is calming, with paired back greys and neutral tones that offer a wonderfully settling, relaxing atmosphere. Expect Kate’s interiors photographs to include lots of candles and houseplants, steaming mugs of tea, and books and magazines in abundance. This is Scandi chic done expertly, and just looking at it makes us breathe more deeply.

Want to get inspired by interior design that’s all about travel? You should check out Bright Bazaar, aka Will Taylor. Bright artwork on the walls and joy in every corner is what his rooms throw out, and Instagram agrees: he has a whopping 300,000 followers on the platform. He’s currently revamping his website, and we’ll be waiting eagerly to see what treasures he’s uncovered when the new site is launched. Watch this space…
Vintage prints, high street steals and homes that children can feel comfortable in are the key facets of East Londoner Rohini Wahi’s offering. Rohini is a freelance journalist and trend forecaster, proving that her eye for a well-designed room is more than just a hobby (just ask Elle Decoration, for which she has worked in the past). Soft furnishings, wooden floors and tasteful choices are what you should expect. Her interiors blog, The Beat That My Heart Skipped, has been running since 2007.
Mad About the House
You can probably trust an interiors journalist to have a keen eye for all things design, and you’d be right to trust author and now well-established interiors influencer Kate Watson-Smyth. Watson-Smyth is a leader in this market, having been named the owner of the UK’s no.1 interiors blog not once, but twice. Her interiors are based around natural light, which her home has in abundance, as well as books, houseplants, and the odd well-placed feline resident. Instagram agrees: she has over 123,000 followers.
We hope these five interior design stars have given you some inspiration to revamp your own home. So, will your first purchase be flowers, throws, plants, candles or artwork? It’s so hard to choose…!
