Celebrity Interior Designer Brittaney Elise Shares Five Tips + Tricks to make Your House Instagrammable / Instagram-Worthy

With an education in interior architecture & Design (B.S.), an eye for beauty, creative mind, and passionate heart, Brittaney Elise Minton, known as BE, has brought a multitude of dreamy visions to reality over the past decade. Her interior design and décor portfolio in home include celebrities such as Zendaya and Selena Gomez. It doesn’t stop there, Brittaney has also designed commercial spaces such as Hubble Studio, JD Luxe, and The California Dream Tattoo Shop. She recently finished redesigning the new Calabasas residence of Bellami’s founder Nikki Eslami and we cannot get enough of it (see pictures above). Fun Fact: Kylie Jenner used to live in that space. Brittaney shared some of her tips + tricks on how to make your home more Instagram-Worthy, so you can get those likes that you truly deserve.

1. TWO PARTS TRENDY:
I will get straight to the point for you: if you want a true-to-present Instagram-worthy photo, you need to be on-trend and in-the-moment. Whether you’re a fan of current trends or not, find one that resonate with you personally (cue: authenticity) and incorporate that accent pillow or potted plant into your #interiros photo, and I am fully confident you will receive a proper round of e-applause!

2. ONE BRIGHT BACKGROUND:
Lighting is everything. We all know my favorite color is the absence of it; white — so believe me when I say this is the ultimate color (or lack-there-of…!) — it creates an ultimately attractive space on everyone’s screen. Always choose bright: whether that’s a Diva Light or your Photoshop brightening and/or VSCO app-editing skills. LIKE LIKE LIKE … CHECK!

3. A SPLASH OF MARBLE:
Let’s just be honest. You’re not sick of it. I’m not entirely sick of it. In fact, we all actually still very much die for it. Hint: away from Carerra; into Calacatta. Including a splash of pretty much any marble — whether your IG photo includes entire table top or un petit cheeseboard — it will appeal to a pretty big fanbase.

4. A DASH OF MIXED METALS:
Gold, silver, copper; brushed or shiny — if you can find a way to delicately couple metals, you have found a way to think like a designer.

5. AND JUST A PINCH OF CONTEXT:
I’ve found that capturing the space at an angle actually invites your viewer to truly feel the sense of the entire room a bit more than the dramatic POV of a bird’s eye, close up, of dead straightforward.
