With endless inspiration at our fingertips, it's easier than ever to train your eye and hone in on your personal decor style — but it can also feel completely overwhelming. Keep your style fresh and keep the inspiration flowing by shaking up your feed with new perspectives from the next trendsetters.  

Each month, we're profiling three visual tastemakers whose images always stop us mid-scroll. We promise they're worth the follow.

LC & Kel Interiors

Toronto 🇨🇦

Design duo Laura Collins and Kelly Lynn Armstrong create spaces that somehow manage to blur the lines between traditional and contemporary, eclectic and minimal, and bohemian and refined.

The pair describe themselves as offering everything from full-scale residential design to makeovers on existing homes whose interiors "may have lost their way." This appreciation for good bones shines through in their aesthetic. Their spaces are nearly always personalized with thrifted antique accents or vintage flea market finds, which fit seamlessly into these reimagined and refreshed rooms.

The result: Homes that are polished, relaxed, and undeniably cool.

Catherine Sloan

Nashville, TN

We could scroll photos of gorgeous home exteriors all day long, and American architect Catherine Sloan is the mastermind behind so many stunning properties.

An expert in Colonial Revival style, Sloan flawlessly assembles timeless and traditional home features — like extra-large multi-pane windows, slatted shutters, stately porticos, dormers and gables (oh my!) — in ways that feel entirely fresh. Each and every home looks ready to host the cast of Nancy Meyers's next film, and obviously, we are so here for that.

Combine all that with stunning landscaping and interiors designed by some of our faves (Sarah Bartholomew, are your ears burning?), and, well, we're swooning with every post.

Vanessa Francis

Milton, ON 🇨🇦

Interior decorator and decor blogger Vanessa Francis has a way with bright, happy colour. (It's no wonder she named her blog Decor Happy!)

Hallmarks of her style include floral patterned fabrics and wallpaper along with pops of pink and blue, offset by sleek hardware and contemporary lighting. One of our favourite things about her rooms: the emphasis on liveable, comfortable style.

We love the glimpses she shares of her home, and transformative before-and-after shots of client projects (plus the occasionalphoto of her sweet pup, Ellie, in the bath.)
