We’re not afraid to admit that we’ve spent a lot of time on Instagram over the last twelve months. But with all that extra screen time came an endless array of chic design inspiration. As the year comes to a close, our social team is taking a look at some of the most loved, and most inspiring, rooms featured on Chairish’s Instagram in 2020. From wallpaper wonders to bold color statements, get ready for some major eye candy!

10. The Golden Touch

It’s all about the details in this living space designed by San Francisco-based Will Wick and styled by Bianca Sotelo. The animalia-inspired decor, gold accents, and the variety of textures combine for a fresh take on black and white decorating.

9. Pink Paradise

We can’t decide what we love most about this perfectly pink powder room designed by Jen Talbot. From the Gucci wallpaper and whimsical mirror, to the swan faucet and bold marble sink, this small but mighty space is full of inspiration.

8. Self-Care Sanctuary

This luxurious bathroom designed by New York-based Carrier and Company is the envy of our self-care rituals. Complete with a soaking tub, marble-clad shower and brass hardware, this space is simply a stunner.

7. The Home Library of Our Dreams

Statement ceilings are one of our (many) design weaknesses, and this library designed by Corey Damen Jenkins for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House is no exception. Add in a fabulous chandelier, a mix of patterns, and the classic color combination of pink and green and we’re ready to tackle our reading list.

6. Marble Moment

The only thing we love more than colored kitchen cabinetry, is colored kitchen cabinetry paired with bold marble. Disc Interiors used natural textures and colors to create a stunning contrast in this cozy kitchen.

5. Luxe Living

Zoe Feldman has mastered the art of layering in this eclectic living room. Combining vintage and modern pieces decor with a Baker sofa upholstered in an ochre velvet, the D.C.-based designer proves that you can’t go wrong with going bold.

4. Gorgeous in Green

We’ve never met a green kitchen we didn’t love and this Connecticut countryside kitchen is giving us major heart eyes. Designer Rachel Reider used Benjamin Moore’s Caldwell Green and added a bright red chandelier to create a space that’s both bright and inviting.

3. Stripe, Stripe Baby

Iconic design steals the show in this space designed by Sydney-based firm Arent&Pyke. The Serie Up 2000 chair, designed in 1969 by Gaetano Pesce in collaboration with B&B Italia, paired with a picture perfect gallery wall creates our ideal WFH setup.

2. Fin-tastic

This whimsical bathroom is one of the most inspiring rooms we saw this year. Russian architect Georgy Shebshaevich paired Cole & Son Acquario wallpaper with marble tiled flooring, brass hardware and pops of pink to create a truly unique space.

1. Sweet reads are made of this

Having spent the majority of the year at home, we have to admit we’re a little bit envious of this living room with a built-in library. Featuring floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a mix of eclectic decor, it’s no surprise that this space designed by Kirsten Blazek is our most-liked photo of 2020!

Reader’s Choice: Lacquered and Lovely

Earlier this month we asked our Instagram followers to vote for their favorite room of the year. Taking the top spot is this Formal Cloak Room (that leads to a powder room) designed by Sarah Vaile for the 2020 Lake Forest Showhouse. The color of the space was inspired by a burgundy Rolls Royce driven by Princess Margaret in an episode of “The Crown,” and features a Murano globe pendant lamp, sourced on Chairish.
