Among the goals I’ve set for myself in 2020, beautifying my home is a top priority. After all, I spend so much time here. From working primarily out of my home office to no longer being in these streets as much as I used to be (ha!). So spending nights or weekends curled up on the couch is one of my favorite things to do. And as a result, I’ve been looking at home decor inspiration constantly, especially from Black interior designers on social media.
Similar to fashion, the way we style our homes is an avenue of self-expression. And I’ve been looking for insight on just how to execute that. These experts share beautiful imagery of their work and tips on how to accomplish the same in your own home. Here’s my list of Black interior designers, you need to follow now:
If you’re into boho-maximalist design, Justina Blakeney is for you. Her eye-catching, print-centric aesthetic is sure to help you tap into your own creativity. And the best part? You can purchase a number of the pieces she features, from her very own boutique, The Jungalow.
Forbes + Masters
I first learned about Tavia Forbes and Monet Masters through close friends who actually commissioned them to do their own home. (Which looks fabulous by the way!) Taking inspiration from art and textiles birthed in Africa, this Atlanta-based duo stands out for their chic and highly modern, yet personal, design aesthetic.
Nicole White is an award-winning designer who brings the bold colors and textures of the Caribbean to life through her modern and highly sophisticated interiors. If you’re looking for architectural lines coupled with pops of color and texture, she’s the one to follow.
If plants are your thing, Hilton Carter is a must-follow! This plant and interior-stylist is most well known for his green interiors that bring the fusion of indoor-outdoor home decor to a whole new level.
Nicole Gibbons has an elegant yet approachable eye for design that embodies all of our Pinterest dreams. Her Insta-worthy interiors feel fresh and airy.
Nicole also launched her own paint brand, Clare, which is meant to simplify the paint-shopping process. With the help of an easy to follow guide, Clare delivers designer-curated colors, mess-free paint swatches, and the highest-quality paint and supplies right to your door.
