Want to spruce up your home but can’t afford to hire an interior designer?
Look no further for your spring inspiration. Boston.com has found five New England-based interior design Instagram accounts with pictures that will get your creative juices flowing.
Boston-based interior designer Annsley McAleer uses “fresh color and pattern’’ to keep her traditional style innovative, according to her website. A Southern native, McAleer studied abroad in Europe before working in New York and later starting her own design firm in 2004.
According to Boston Common Magazine, McAleer’s palette preference is “blue,’’ and she loves playing around with textiles.
According to Rivoli’s website, the decorator has been sketching designs for clothes, shoes, and rooms from a very young age. The New York native enjoys blending traditional pieces with European antiques and Moroccan accents, and draws inspiration from local and international travel.
Rivoli’s company serves the Greater New England area and her work has been featured in New England Home and the Boston Globe Magazine. She frequently uses “rich, saturated colors that play off neutrals.’’

Stephanie Rossi founded her interior design firm Spazio Rosso in 2005 after receiving her BFA in interior design from the New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk University, according to her website. She describes her style as “bold, balanced, and dynamic,’’ and told Boston Common Magazine she doesn’t play favorites with colors, but goes with her gut: “If it’s good, I like it; if it works, I use it.’’
Founded in 2005 by owner Tiffany LeBlanc, this boutique interior design firm works with clients in the Greater Boston area. According to LeBlanc’s website, the firm specializes in “durable, beautiful furnishings and finishes, with a warm, comfortable aesthetic.’’ LeBlanc says she draws inspiration from travels to Japan, Italy, France, Singapore, and Thailand.
LeBlanc Design’s color palette reflects materials and shades found in nature, and focuses on being calm and refined rather than “trendy.’’
Founded by Kate Maloney Albiani, Cambridge-based Kate Maloney Interior Design (KMID) specializes in high-end residential interiors in New England. As lead designer, Albiani combines antique and modern pieces with “wonderfully unexpected details,’’ her website states.
A graduate of business school at Bentley College, Albiani also works with clients to find appropriate budgets for projects. “My goal is to design rooms that are just as beautiful to look at as they are comfortable to live in,’’ she says on her website.
