In our first round of local Instagrammers, we listed some of our favorite designers, bloggers, and Washingtonians-about-town. Now we’re back with another dose of must-follow inspiration.

Lauren Liess @laurenliess

Love this thing #outdoorshower #warmnights

A photo posted by Lauren Liess (@laurenliess) on

Virginia-based interior designer Lauren Liess not only provides peeks into her own dreamy home (like that serene outdoor shower above), she also posts photos of her modern, natural design at work in clients’ homes. Her talent for building an interesting, comfortable room using nothing but neutrals is unsurpassed. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that Liess is a Lara Stone doppelganger.

Jennifer Wagner Schmidt @jwsinteriors

Harper’s Bazaar named this DC-based designer and blogger one of their women who look “fab at every age,” and her photos prove that her taste is fab as well. She snap pictures of her own enviable wardrobe and also chronicles the many glamorous interiors projects her eponymous firm handles. Plus, she’s recently launched a service called “Box of Chic” that delivers smart and polished design accessories to your home each month.

Healthfully Ever After ( Carlene Thomas) @healthyfullyeverafter

There’s often a disconnect between healthy food and gorgeous food. Not so with Healthfully Ever After ‘grammer Carlene Thomas, a registered dietician and nutritionist whose smoothies, salads, and spreads make us long for fresh fruits and veggies. She’s so good, in fact, that we named her our Best Healthy Food Blogger in the 2015 Best of Washington issue.

Rebecca Gallop @dailysomething

Prop stylist, Kinfolk contributor, entetaining guru, and all-around style star Rebecca Gallop posts photos so dreamy and ethereal you’ll soon feel moved to declutter and redesign your whole home. Everything she touches feels light and breezy.

Joanna Carden @joannagcarden

Come for the photos of Carden’s chic urban abode. Stay for the ‘grams of her adorable, blue-eyed baby boy.
