Chances are, you’ve already watched your way through Netflix’s catalogue of home makeover shows and interior design specials. Let’s admit it, dreaming up your fantasy home is the ultimate form of escapism. 

Not to worry, even if you’ve made your way through your favourite tv shows, Instagram is not short on interior design accounts to find inspo for your next (real, or fictional) renovation. 

Yes we all know Kelly Wearstler and India Mahdavi, but IG’s algorithms have probably kept the region’s own interior experts tucked away. But we think it’s time to get familiar with them. 

From Dubai-based design studios to award winning interior architects, we’ve rounded up the best to follow on Instagram.

When he’s not playing the drums for beloved Lebanese music group Mashrou’Leila, the award-winning architect can be found running his own namesake interior design studio. You probably already saw the mutli-hyphenate’s latest project, “The Square,” which was a joint project with Italian label Bottega Veneta. The structure in signature Bottega green made its debut in Dubai during Ramadan before making its way to Tokyo.

The Lebanese interior architect and product designer creates fantastical furniture and decorative pieces. From pastel-drenched sculpted chairs to geometric mirrors in verdigris finishing and brushed brass and handcrafted art piece, Yasmine does it all.
