Regardless of demographic, Americans agree that picking the right home decor is important. That sentiment was on full display last year when U.S. consumers collectively spent more than $180 billion on home decor products.
But whether you fancy yourself a design expert or freely admit you need all the help you can get, we can all use a little inspiration when it comes to filling out our perfect living space.
Home decor influencers are valuable resources for consumers who need fresh ideas and classic styles. And for brands supplying the products that help make a house a home, there are no better partners to collaborate with.
A home decor influencer is any social media creator who produces content that inspires interior and exterior style decisions, DIY projects, or overall aesthetic upgrades.
These creators can include, but are not limited to:
Many of these creators have grown a dedicated and engaged following thanks to their unique style and willingness to give audiences a behind-the-scenes look at their creative process.
Their followers trust them for home improvement and interior design tips, making home decor influencers the perfect partners for brands hoping to get their products and services in front of a captivated target audience.
Home tours are a great way for influencers to give their followers an intimate look at their design taste. Home tours are especially effective on live streams because audiences can ask questions about specific products and engage with the creator in real time.
Top-of-the-line home renovation content is always a good time, but budget makeovers are the way to go for creators who are really looking to inspire and engage with their audience. Decorating a home can be a daunting task, but there are plenty of influencers who can walk you through the process without the stress of accumulating a massive credit card bill at the end of the makeover.
Amazing home decor doesn’t always have to come from a retail store. For designers on a budget or those who want to make their decor uniquely their own, there are plenty of influencers to turn to for inspiration and tutorials. These creators are also an excellent match for craft and art supply brands who want to showcase their products’ possibilities.
“Shop with me” content is some of the most popular and engaging for home decor creators. By taking their audiences inside their favorite stores, creators can speak about particular items, talk about budget, and give followers a look at their thought process when they first begin conceptualizing a space. It’s also a savvy way for brands to spread awareness of new products.
When the COVID-19 pandemic forced us indoors, many people realized the importance of making the most out of every inch of space in their homes. Whether it was a guest bedroom that doubled as an at-home gym or a dining room that also served as an office, everyone rethought their home layout. And in 2022, we’re still looking to get the most out of what we have.
“The pandemic led us to acknowledge the importance of the ‘home’ as a haven. We will continue to see the demand for versatility in the home where one space can be transformed and molded for different activities: a dining table or kitchen island can double as a desk.”— Alice Dahbura-Borges, Miami-based designer and architect
Nature is one of the finest sources of inspiration for home design in 2022. Sometimes a warm accent wall can be all a room needs to reach its potential. Other times, bathing an entire room in a strong earth tone can bring out just the right soothing aesthetic.
“The new neutrals for home colors are actual nature colors. 2022 will see more designs bringing in those muted nature colors such as leafy greens, bark browns, ocean and sky blues, sandy beiges, cloudy whites, and more into the home.”— Linda Hayslett of LH.Designed
Sustainability is good for business and the planet. Many consumers are willing to pay a little more for sustainable products, but for those who aren’t, there are plenty of options for DIY home furnishings that look great and don’t break the bank.
“We are starting to see lots of new brilliant options for sustainable fabrics and materials. I think this should now be a priority for all designers.”— Marcus Barwell, Managing Director of Soho House Design
Earlier this year, Pinterest released Try On for Home Decor, a new way for users to shop for home decor inspiration on Pinterest using augmented reality. The AR tool lets users place over 80,000 items from retailers like Crate and Barrel, Walmart, and Wayfair in their homes using the Pinterest Lens camera.
Pinterest’s internal data suggests that users are five times more likely to purchase from AR-enabled pins than standard pins. However, the evolution of its technology will play a major role in how conversions shake out long-term.
“There’s early evidence to suggest that AR can help increase the conversion rate, but its success really depends on the quality of the AR tools,” said Jasmine Enberg, eMarketer senior analyst at Insider Intelligence. “If the experience and technology are clunky, that can even dissuade people from making a purchase.”
Target is one of the largest retailers in the U.S., but it prefers to partner with smaller creators for influencer marketing. Target produces regular content with high-performing micro influencers who can showcase the brand’s affordable products stylishly and tastefully.
West Elm launched The Collective, the brand’s first ambassador program, in April 2021. The Collective features two categories of creators: insiders and tastemakers.

Each member of The Collective shares their favorite pieces with their audiences, and West Elm shares each collection on its website and social feeds.
In 2018, Pottery Barn’s “Loveliest Looks of Christmas Home Tour” featured partnerships with nine popular bloggers and Instagram and Pinterest influencers. Each creator posted their favorite holiday looks and tagged Pottery Barn in their captions with a URL for each featured item. Each post’s “home tour” theme resulted in high engagement rates across the board.
