From pale pastels to deep shades, from neon to nature-inspired, color is one of the most pleasing and significant decor elements you can use when designing a home. At Beth Haley Design, we ADORE color and love perusing colorful Instagram accounts. Whether painted on walls, accented through accessories, or incorporated into furniture, color infuses a space with cheerful energy, invigorates the senses, and inspires creativity.

Although it seems that many modern-day designers shy away from using saturated hues, a few designers we follow are embracing vivacious and bold interiors. The great thing about adding color is that it can be utilized whether your taste is modern or more traditional.

From colorful pianos to graphic wallpaper and abstract art, here are some bright and beautiful ideas to keep in mind for your next project. Enjoy these five colorful Instagram accounts!


Home Ec. is an eclectic interior design company owned and managed by Natalie Papier — an artist, a designer, and an influencer. She showcases her projects on her Instagram, and you can tell she believes there is always room for a pop of vibrancy! Natalie’s vow against bland and boring has taken shape in her many uses of colorful wallpaper, eclectic art, and funky texture.

Kelly Wearstler is widely known for “revolutionizing modern American design.” Her signature luxurious and lively interiors can be found in residential homes as well as restaurants, bars, and hotels.

We enjoy sourcing work by local artists in our projects, and we are BIG fans of Nashville artist Ed Nash. His vivid large-scale paintings are the perfect touch to any space. We are often inspired by his signature style — the use of bold color gradations in various abstract and landscape designs. Follow him on Instagram — you won’t regret it!
