Kate Marker Shares her “Insta-Faves” for Interior Design Inspiration

Home Newsroom Kate Marker Shares her “Insta-Faves” for Interior Design Inspiration

If you’re like me, you’ve discovered the fun of browsing Instagram to find inspiration for anything under the sun. From interior design, entertaining, food, fitness and fashion to books, travel and kid-friendly activities, real people and big brands are sharing their take through images and the experience feels more far-reaching than my local favorite, Facebook. For me, Instagram is replacing HGTV and magazines as my go-to resource for ideas and beautiful photography. One of my favorite Instagrammers to follow is Barrington’s own Kate Marker of Kate Marker Interiors!

With Kate’s expert eye for detail and modern, classic design, her regular Instagram posts have attracted an audience of nearly 17,000 followers from all over the country.

I love watching for Kate’s updates about her current interior design projects and recently asked her who she most enjoys following on Instagram. So here are five of Kate’s “Insta Faves” and the reasons why she turns to these tastemakers for inspiration…


Nicole S. Davis (@nicoledavisinteriors):

“Nicole’s look is California cool – eclectic and surprising, always “on trend” but totally original.”


Studio McGee (@studiomcgee):

“A talented husband & wife team based in Salt Lake City that consistently deliver fresh, inviting spaces. Trademark looks include large doses of white, indigo, shiplap, and buffalo check.”


Erica Powell, Urban Grace Interiors (@urbangraceinteriors):

“A Florida-based designer whose neutral palettes and coastal touches are paired with sophisticated details for a timeless and customized look.”


Brooke Wagner Design (@brookewagnerdesign):

“Brooke Wagner’s West Coast location influences her design approach, characterized by modern organic touches and color palettes that tend to incorporate whites, charcoal grays, and washed woods. She loves clean lines, funky tile, and geometric patterns.”


John and Maura Stoffer Photography (@johnstoffer & @maurastoffer):

“We are so fortunate to have discovered these talented photographers (also a husband and wife team) that capture their artsy urban lifestyle and our own Kate Marker Interiors-designed spaces using only natural light for authentic, gallery-quality images styled with richness and detail in every shot.”

Are you ready to stop tooth decay in its tracks?! The best way to do that (along with routine dental check ups ahem ahem) is by flossing! If you find regular flossing boring...then try the Waterpik!💦 Perfect for getting those hard to reach areas of your mouth with a clean stream of water, just like we use here at Pennino Family Dentistry! This handy tool will also help keep your breath fresh longer (always a plus!)⁠

If you want one for yourself, make sure to stop by the office to purchase!⁠
