5 Must-Watch Interior Design YouTube Channels

I’d say the best way to get out of a rut when it comes to designing your home is immersing yourself with inspiration—and that’s where these interior design YouTube channels come in.

The Brownstone Boys

The Brownstone Boys are a dynamic designer duo with an unfair amount of talent squeezed into only two brains. Specializing in the restoration and modernization of classic brownstone apartments in NYC, they treat these architectural gems with such care and expertise. But even if you’re living in a cozy basement suite or a more modern abode, the Brownstone Boys have something to offer you—trust me.

  • Anyone who wants to learn from the expertise of designers and restorers who have a passion for all things old homes
  • DIY-ers and renovators who are looking for tips and tricks on how to tackle a home restoration project

The Cover Project

The Cover Project offers a glimpse into the homes of creative Russians, spanning the gamut from architects to interior designers. It’s noteworthy that this channel is the first video initiative in the Russian realm as well, highlighting their interiors and architecture worldwide.

The featured spaces are both welcoming and practical, endowed with a focus on natural materials like wood, stone, and linen that offer a warm, inviting aura to each home. Neutral tones reign supreme, but they’re offset by the strategic placement of bold pops of blue and green. The decor and furniture landscape features minimalist designs with clean lines and simple shapes.

Although not primarily an interior design channel, this Japanese YouTuber’s home is a precise reflection of my style, with its warm, breathable, and inspiring aura that is both airy and eclectic. What’s even better is that she shares all of her secrets, including where she sourced her cute objects.

Living.K is an interior design and architecture YouTube channel that caters to lovers of Japanese design and minimalism. I love that they place a particular emphasis on utilizing what already exists, rather than destroying or remodeling existing buildings. Plus, their minimalist spaces do not sacrifice personality, with every detail carefully calculated to balance delight with supreme function. The channel’s videos possess a meditative quality, similar to The Cover Project.

I know every YouTuber out there says, “Sit down and have a cup of tea while you watch!” In this case, I genuinely think it works. Set time aside for yourself to just indulge in these meditative homes.

Who will love this channel?

  • Anyone who wants to learn from the expertise of Japanese architects and get inspiration for their own living or work spaces, particularly those looking to make the most of limited square footage.
  • Those who are interested in learning how to maximize function while still infusing their spaces with personal style and character.

Caroline Winkler

Caroline Winkler is a veritable delight, my friends. The kind of gal who you’d likely relish having a glass of wine with, discussing design, self-confidence, careers, overall wellbeing… can you tell I just wish she lived across the block from me? t

Her boundless enthusiasm for making interior design not only accessible but fun is nothing short of infectious. But what truly sets Caroline apart is her wit and humor. To listen to her wax poetic on topics like lamps, wall art, and coffee tables is to receive a design masterclass from one’s most amusing and charming friend. The whole process becomes a delightful adventure with Caroline at the helm, and it’s impossible not to crave more. (Seriously. She’s one of the few YouTubers I have notifications on for.)

Who will love this channel?

  • Anyone looking for practical design tips and tricks!
  • Fans of witty, humorous personalities who can make even the most mundane topics entertaining
  • Those seeking inspiration for sprucing up their living spaces
  • I’ll be bold here and say… everyone will love this channel
