Favorites from #IDCOatHome: Best of 2021

Every month we invite our Instagram followers to contribute to the #IDCOatHome feed. Our hope from the very beginning was to create a space within the design community for the sharing of ideas, inspiration, project reveals, and more. We’re happy to report that you’ve (once again) gone above and beyond, with over 71,000 images shared during 2021 alone. We could not be more grateful to see glimpses of your work, homes, and favorite spaces that continue to inspire us on a daily basis.

As we close the chapter on this whirlwind year, we’re revisiting ten standout images featuring work by female designers all across the country. We hope you’ll continue to save and share these favorites, per our Instagram etiquette guide, as you head into the new year. And as always, we’d love the opportunity to feature your work, so don’t forget to use #IDCOatHome for your chance to make our monthly round-up right here on the blog!


best of 2021 from the #idcoathome feed


Black soapstone sink by Kate Abt Design

Interior Design: @kateabtdesign | Photography: @stacyzaringoldberg



Drawing on her British roots, Kate Abt knows how to bring a classic sensibility to any space. This Maryland-based designer recently unveiled images of her latest work with the black soapstone sink quickly stopping us in our tracks. And if you think this good, we’d highly recommend a scroll through the entire #nottinghillproject.



Modern living room with curved accent chairs. Design by Ginny MacDonald.

To say we adore Ginny MacDonald’s work would be a massive understatement. Each room she touches turns to gold, and this might be our favorite living space to date. If we had to pinpoint a single detail, it’s the muted mustard color tones paired with all the earthy neutrals. In fact, mustard is a color trend we’ve long had our eye on.

Archway kitchen pantry entrance with open shelving by Marie Flanigan Interiors

Interior Design: @marieflaniganinteriors | Photography: @juliesoefer



Marie Flanigan is one of the biggest names in the design community, and with one look at her work, it’s easy to see why. When we came across this pantry nook on the feed, it immediately caught our eye. The reclaimed arched wood door is unlike any other, and that pantry organization is truly on point.


Marble slab backsplash with wood cabinetry kitchen | Design by Kelsey Leigh Design Co.

Never have we ever seen a backsplash slab that’s quite this stunning. Pair that with the medium wood tone cabinetry and the dark countertops, and it’s yet another home run by Kelsey Leigh Design Co.


Interior Design: @sabrinaalbanesedesign | Photography: @lomillerphoto



We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: Sabrina Albanese is a true artist. She combined color, texture, dimension, and style for a living room design that feels entirely unexpected—green sofas for the win.


Textured dining chairs and patterned roman shades, design by Katie Monkhouse Interiors

We recently had the pleasure of interviewing Katie Monkhouse, and became (even) bigger fans of her work in the process. She’s not one to play it safe, and this space is a prime example. We love the juxtaposition that feels entirely unexpected, from the window treatment pattern play to the chunky dining chair texture and sleek + modern lighting.


Varied wood tones in entryway by Asha Maxey | Favorites from the #IDCOatHome Feed

Interior Design: @ashamaiadesign | Photography: @jennverrierphoto



We were lucky enough to discover Asha Maía Design when this entryway popped up in the #IDCOatHome feed. It’s a lesson in organic design with varied wood tones, a mix of natural elements, and a calming earthy palette. Don’t miss our interview with Asha for more glimpses of her work.


Kitchen pantry featuring a black arched entryway | Design by @thelifestyledco

Interior Design: @thelifestyledco | Photography: @ryangarvin



When a design team labels their work #CoolShitProj, you know it’s going to be good. Case in point? This kitchen pantry featuring the arched entryway of our dreams. You might remember we included archways in our 2021 Interior Design Trends to Watch, and we still can’t get enough.


Guest bathroom with mixed metal finishes, design by Brooke Wagner

Interior Design: @brookewagnerdesign | Photography: @manololangis



Consider this guest bathroom a lesson in the beauty of mixed metals. With not one but three different metal finishes, this space manages to feel entirely fresh yet cohesive all at once.


Modern muted, tonal living room design by Light and Dwell Interiors

Interior Design: @lightanddwell | Photography: @paigerumorephoto



The ladies of Light and Dwell Interiors confessed they have zero chill about their latest project photos, and truthfully, neither do we. They managed to design a muted, tonal living room with tons of visual interest, and our favorite moment? The textural addition of a neutral boucle chair.
