Kicking off the list with a designer who loves to play with colors, patterns, and unique pieces. Max Humphrey is known for adding interesting visual elements to his designs. His works flow seamlessly, then you’ll see a unique piece somewhere in the equation. But don’t worry because everything makes complete sense! His choice of decor pieces just adds personality to his projects.
He’s never afraid to incorporate pops of color and fun details. Take this peace sign tapestry in this project which adds a youthful vibe to the otherwise relaxed space. This pink air duct is an unexpected addition, but look at how this simple tweak added an extra point of interest.
Print on print? Look how he styles his own guest room with eight (or possibly even more) different prints! Not everyone can pull off that much detail but surprisingly, Max could! Nothing is ever boring with his projects.
He has served clients from Portland, Los Angeles, and even as far as New York! You’ll see works far from simple and minimal in his account. If you particularly enjoy colors and details, trust us when we say your satisfaction is guaranteed with Max!

Garrison Hullinger Interior Design
Garrison Hullinger caters to residential, commercial, and hospitality clients, so their feed is a nice mix of small and big projects. While they are not known for a singular approach to their designs, their works always exude sophistication. As they say, you’ll know it’s a GHID project right when you walk into a room.
Their strength lies in the beauty of each piece they use. Take this breakfast nook as an example. There are no patterns and color play but we’d personally love to start our mornings here! The space is just so inviting. The same is true for this office space. The simple elements are perfectly tied in by the gorgeous chandelier. Not much is going on but everything looks polished.
But they’re not afraid of colors, too. This courtyard is a full 360! It has pink, purple, and blue furniture to add visual interest. It is especially evident during the day when the morning sun hits the space. It is an awesome place for hotel guests to hangout.
If you’re into minimalist yet upscale aesthetic then definitely check out Garrison Hullinger.
Copeland + Co. Interiors
Another minimalist designer you can follow is Copeland + Co. Interiors. While their designs are on the simpler side, they are not afraid to mix and match colors. Their projects have a more interesting color palette while remaining peaceful to the eyes.
This living space with a brown couch mixed with green couches just looks perfect. Not to mention, the addition of earth-toned pillows and the black and white rug. This nook follows the same concept featuring a tan couch as the focal point, adorned with muted pieces. Copeland shows that minimalism doesn’t always have to be grayscale and that colors can also be introduced into simple designs.
Their style is to set up a simple base then add in a splash of cohesive colors. It’s like working with a high-quality canvas that’s why every staging variation works well. The similarity in Copeland’s projects makes their feed appear like a carefully curated account, and their modern and timeless approach makes their work suitable for many clients.
