Houston Instagrammers We Love

We've rounded up a list of our favorite Houston-based peeps that we follow on Instagram that we think you'll love, too. 

Instagram has been so great for our business - the amazing folks we follow keep us inspired and informed, and, thanks to IG, we've actually met people in person who have become friends, like one of our featured artists, Kellie Morley, and fellow interior designer Holly Mathis.

Yes, we follow amazing accounts all across the country, but for today, we're focused right here on the 713. Simply click the links below and you'll be taken to their Instagram feeds. (this post is in no way sponsored, just our opinions!)


Segreto Finishes

Leslie Sinclair and her team at Segreto are, in a word, incredible. They work with A-list designers and feature the coolest projects on their instagram feed. If you don't follow them already, be sure to check them out: you're sure to be inspired! @segretofinishes



La Dolce Vita


Paloma Conteras is a nationally-known interior designer based right here in Houston.

She shares the most beautiful home tours on her blog, La Dolce Vita, as well as local events, design trends, and more.

Paloma has a huge national following and we often see her name pop-up in big magazines. We feel lucky to call her a fellow Houston girl! 

Find her at @ladolcevitablog





Caroline Knapp started "House of Harper" as a fashion blog, but it's now much more than that: she features interior design projects, her toddler and new baby, fashion, and everything in between.

She's recently been seen in InStyle mag and was one of SouthernLiving's top bloggers to follow in 2015. With a cool 51 thousand followers, she's on to something. @houseofharper



Haley Ottmann

Haley is a commercial interior designer by day and freelance photographer by night. We know there tons of photographers out there to follow, but we're drawn to Haley's unique perspective and how she shares insightful captions with her beautiful photos. Follow her @haleyottmann.

Haley shoots it all: weddings, family portraits... Below, a photo she took when our friend Kelsey got engaged to her fiance, Brad. And, a Christmas card pic Haley took of fashionista Shannon Stucky and her husband, Will. (More about Shannon below!) Haley, thanks for keeping us inspired to do more of what we love - and see beauty all around us! 


Snapshots and My Thoughts


We haven't met Ailee in person, but we've emailed a few times, and we can already tell by following her that we'd totally be BFFs.

She blogs and posts about all kinds of things, and her photography is beautiful! So is her daughter, Isla. Even if you're not a mom, you'll love following Ailee and seeing her cute posts!

Fashion & Florals

L. Avenue


Yall. We met Lyndsey of "L. Avenue" through our friend Whitney Russell, and within five minutes, we thought...does this girl sleep?

She's a mom of two and a fireball of energy.

And with 17 thousand insta followers, she's on to something. Follow her for fashion tips and pretty pics.

We met Shannon Stucky years ago through our best gal, Renza. She launched her lifestyle/fashion blog in May 2015 and she is killin' it. We love that her style is affordable and practical and gorgeous.

Fun fact: Shannon was Cinderella at Disneyland after college. Really.

Here's her blog "Hey Shananigans" and her instagram @hey_shananigans.   






The Briar Rose

Kristin Tauber creates incredible arrangements for any occasion - weddings, showers, or just because. She offers monthly floral subscriptions with free delivery - what a neat gift! We think Kristin is just the sweetest (and we're a little bit biased - she's on the Renovate team! You can find her at our studio most Tuesdays and Wednesdays.) If you can't have fresh flowers at your house or on your desk, you might as well have them on your phone through her beautiful IG feed. @thebriarrosehouston
