In the spirit of the holidays, we’re not only sharing food but the designers that inspire us.  

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and we wanted to take the time to recognize a few of our favorite interior design accounts to follow on social media this week! 

1.@erica.morgan.long

Ever come across a feed that looks like it’s straight out of a catalog? That’s Erica’s feed! You can swipe through before and afters to see her personal projects transform from dated to dashing. When it comes to design styles, Erica doesn’t have a favorite. She’s a lover of all trends, but there’s no denying that as soon as colors are involved, grey is at the top of her list! 

2.@frenchcoastalhome

This account is just as the name sounds, a beach house in a french country style! You’ll never fall short of farmhouse decor following @frenchcoastalhome. Maybe it’ll even inspire you to move to Sea Bright, New Jersey! No matter where you live or travel, you can always rely on account manager, Gladys, to source her finds and sneak in some discount codes for all the bargain shoppers out there!  

3.@interiordesign_aholic

Are you a lover of mood boards and designing on a budget? You have to check out Alexis’ Instagram! For Alexis (Lexi), her passion for design started at a young age when she found herself rearranging the living room and bringing a vision to life. Now, she loves to incorporate accent pieces and vintage finds in her designs with the money saved from staple items, teaching us where and when to splurge!    

4.@taraatkinsinteriors

Kansas City, need a local interior designer to follow? Not a KC resident but want an out-of-state designer to follow? Well you’re in luck! Tara Atkins’ account never falls short of fun. From DIY’s to fully furnished 3D renderings, there are no surprises here when it comes to finished design. Be inspired by her projects and her personal adventures, from thrifting to tiny house living. 

5.@vintagethreshold

New England based interior designer, Natasha (Tasha) Young, followed her inner designer not too long ago, proving that it’s never too late to do what you love. Tasha’s style is the epitome of hygge, a Norweigan word describing the extent and quality of comfort in a home. Hygge elicits a feeling of greater well-being, and who doesn’t want to call their home their happy place? 

6.@gracefulfarmhouse      

Grace, as in @gracefulfarmhouse, brings all things home and garden to you. Lover of design and decor, Grace discovered home blogs back in 2012, and it wasn’t until 2014 that she started her own (Graceful Farmhouse). Since then, she’s shared the beauty of antiques and the importance of decor in a home. Her feed is a breath of fresh air and even comes complete with a website for further inspiration. Whether in need of decor, recipes, or just in the mood for crafts, be sure to follow @gracefulfarmhouse this holiday season!

The exciting news just keeps flowing here at Emily’s Interiors! This month, we added a new Interior Designer to join our growing team! Introducing Natasha (Tasha) Young!

Tasha is energetic, fun, bubbly and so thrilled about joining our team. Interior Design is her passion and it shows in her work.

Here are a few things about Tasha, her design journey and more!

A little bit about Tasha:

“From a young age, I loved rearranging furniture in my childhood home. I even asked my Dad if we could add an exposed brick wall in my room (ha!). I am still obsessed with exposed brick to this day. Prior to diving into design, I worked in Marketing both in Boston and San Francisco, where I met my now husband. We moved back east 9 years ago, bought a condo in Southie (South Boston for non-locals), had a baby (she’s now 8!) and got black lab rescue pup. Having a kid and a dog in a city condo isn’t exactly ideal, so we decided it was time to move to the ‘burbs. After renovating my kitchen, bathroom, and backyard at my new home, it was clear how passionate I was about Design. I knew then that this was what I was meant to do, so I decided to start a ‘side hustle’ called Vintage Threshold, offering Interior Styling services.”

How would you describe your design style?

“I would describe my design style as “eclectic boho farmhouse.” I love being cozy, so that means lots of different textures, tons of throw blankets & pillows, anything furry and a lot of yummy smelling candles. There’s a Norwegian word for it called hygge. I also love anything vintage. It adds so much character to a room and is a conversation starter. It fascinates me to think about the history behind the piece and the life of the person who owned it. Oh, and plants. Every room is better with plants!”

Favorite Places to Shop for You and Your Clients?

“You can never go wrong with décor from HomeGoods and Target. I never walk out empty handed. It’s a problem. I also love Magnolia because Joanna Gaines is a design goddess. When it comes to furniture, I love West Elm, McGee & Co and Shoppe by Amber Interiors. I’ve been wanting to try Article too, they have some really cool pieces.”

What do you enjoy most about being a designer?

“I love helping someone turn their home into a place they love, and they never want to leave. My home is truly my happy place and I want everyone to feel that same way. Also, you don’t need a ton of money to fall in love with your space.”

Do you have any tips for designing on a budget?

“Shop at places like Target or HomeGoods, these stores have awesome finds! But, be sure to go to these stores with a plan of what you need for your space, otherwise you will end up buying every cute item you see.”

Any advice for getting into the field?

“This goes for any field. Don’t doubt yourself. Be willing to put yourself out there because you never know unless you try. What’s that saying, “In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take?” It’s so true. You just gotta hustle to get what you want, be willing to put in hard work and be confident.  And always think about building your brand!”
