When it comes to home décor, Vancouver is a hotbed of talent (indeed, many decorators say the West Coast’s natural beauty inspires their design endeavours.) While many of us don’t have the budgets to hire a design consultant for our home projects, it certainly helps that many share pics of their projects on social media, so we can take cues from their work. Here are five Vancouver-based interior design accounts that are worth a follow:
Since 2013, the U.K.-bred, Port Moody-based interior designer @jamie_banfield_design has been beautifying homes and commercial spaces with his signature West Coast contemporary flair. Along with an 11.8k Instagram follower base, Jamie’s resume includes renovating a portion of Love It or List It star Todd Talbot’s Lions Bay residence, and a cabinetry line he created in partnership with Kohler.
The half-Greman half-Chinese founder and creative director of Vancouver-based interior design House of Bohn is a social media diva in her own right (her personal account @karinbohn has 31.9k followers), but if you want to see her company’s multi-million dollar design projects that run the gamut from hair salons to penthouse suites, check out @houseofbohn (18.1k followers).
A player on the design scene for 15 years, @kellydeckdesign’s specialty is creating luxurious and tranquil interiors, especially for high-end custom homes. 29.3k Instagram users follow the account for its stunning photography, often featuring beautiful light-flooded rooms. Whether you’re decorating an oceanside property, a modern city home or a vacation getaway, you’re bound to find inspiration here.
On her Insta account, Vancouver-based interior designer @gilliansegaldesign gives her 11.2k followers a behind-the-scenes look as she transforms residential and commercial spaces with her modern eclectic style. While her interior décor photos are as drool-worthy as they come, the photos of her baby, Gigi, and her Pomeranian, Bear, are equally adorbs.
