Best known for her distinct style that is always timeless, layered, and lived in, the environments Lewis typically designs reflect a signature West Coast aesthetic she describes as “laid back” and “understated cool.” That often translates on her Instagram page to vintage elements, layered textiles, and nature-inspired hues, all of which age well and are made for everyday living.

Abigail Ahern

Leave it to the professional to put dark to the test but not make you feel sorrowful. Abigail Ahern is one of Britain’s most eclectic interior designers. It’s definitely hard to classify a designer so artistic but maybe she’s not meant to be classified as her talents scream maximalism, bohemia, and warmth throughout her work.

Her Instagram is a tutorial even for those who want to inject their living space with rich color and texture, and her daily work, inspirations, and design life are pored for all her viewers to see!
