Refresh your Instagram feed with these leaders in the cruise interiors design space.

For the Minimalist Design Lover

If you just can’t get enough of minimalist interior designs, following CBE Kelly Hoppen is a must! The aesthetically pleasing, beautifully designed interiors decorating her feed are sure to inspire anybody. While her designs are traditionally land-based, Kelly Hoppen debuted her first design at sea on Celebrity Edge in 2019. Snaps of both her design concepts and the final completed cruise interiors can even be spotted on her feed.

As well as showcasing her beautiful interior designs, Kelly Hoppen regularly shares plenty of design tips and trends. Here, you can learn how to mix beige and grey in a design, or how to create the illusion of space straight from the expert designer herself.

For the Aesthete

Filled with minimalist interiors, clean lines, beautiful textures, and a handful of luscious gardenscapes, CSI advisory board member Petra Ryberg’s Instagram will surely be a favourite among those with an eye for beautiful things. Petra has recently embarked on a new journey starting her own design firm called STUDIO BERG+ after heading up the design department for P&O Australia for the last 6 years in Sydney. Having designed for the likes of Wilson Associates and Hirsch Bedner Associates, as well as completing a project with Ritz-Carlton, Petra’s expertise as an international designer is evident.

For the Fashion Junkie

Although CSI advisory board member My Nguyen may be a multitalented, award-winning interior designer, her Instagram feed is far more focused on the fashion-forward. The Director of Interior Design at Holland America Group shares #OOTD photos with her followers regularly, as well as documenting the industry events she attends, including Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expo Americas.

Despite My’s busy lifestyle and demanding projects, she maintains an active Instagram, meaning you’ll be able to admire her style snaps til your heart’s content. But fear not cruise lovers – despite being a fashionista, My still shares industry snippets from her ongoing projects!

From sneak peeks of her latest projects and visits to industry trade shows including Cruise Ship Interiors Design Expos, to hilarious memes and top tips for designers, her bold and engaging posts give her followers plenty to enjoy!
