#MCM: 12 Dude Designers We're Crushing On Right Now

Add these fellas to your Instagram feed.

Happy, #MCM! (That's #mancrushmonday, friends.) We decided it was time to put a design spin on this hashtag by sharing some of our favorite male designers making our heads spin on Instagram.

Brian Patrick Flynn / @bpatrickflynn

Brian Patrick Flynn is an Atlanta-based designer who also happens to have a gorgeous home in Reykjavik, Iceland. His spaces often feature bold colors, unique patterns and tailored furniture and decor. For the past several years, he's also been the designer of HGTV Dream Home, HGTV Urban Oasis, HGTV Spring House and HGTV Holiday House. (Whew!)

Benjamin Vandiver / @benjaminvandiver

Based out of both Nashville and New York City, Benjamin Vandiver is a designer to add to your radar...stat. His minimalist designs tend to feel classic and intentional yet elegant and luxe.

Nate Berkus / @nateberkus

Years ago, Oprah introduced us to Nate Berkus, and we haven't been able to give him up since. His spaces always feel layered, chic and full of interesting, personal touches. He also has a fabulous line of furniture and accessories at Target. (You've bought everything already though, right?)

Jeremiah Brent / @jeremiahbrent

We originally met Jeremiah Brent on Bravo's The Rachel Zoe Project. He went on to become a successful interior designer of his own right and is now married to Nate Berkus. On their new show, Nate & Jeremiah by Design, they help couples and young families solve tough design challenges.

Orlando Soria / @mrorlandosoria

Orlando Soria has come a long way since his days as Emily Henderson's assistant on her HGTV show, Secrets From a Stylist. His spaces are often refined, masculine and serene. He's currently working on a book, and his daily Instagram stories are hilarious. We're excited to see what sorts of surprises he has in store next.

Brady Tolbert / @bradytolbert

Speaking of Emily Henderson, Brady Tolbert is her current editorial director and a seriously fantastic designer. His spaces feel accessible, fresh and completely Pinterest-worthy. He specializes in DIY and budget-friendly upgrades that will truly blow your mind.

Ron Woodson / @rwwoodson

As one half of the design duo behind Woodson & Rummerfield's House of Design, Ron Woodson is definitely someone to watch in the design world. Woodson & Rummerfield create spaces that are luxurious, glam and always head-turning.

Mat Sanders / @consortdesign

Mat Sanders is one of the partners behind celebrity interior design firm Consort Design. With shops in both Los Angeles and New York, Consort is a must-stop destination if you're in either city. Mat and his team of designers tackle spaces all over the world, like this warm, beautiful home in Telluride, Colo.

Jason Tauritz / @americangarage

Jason Tauritz is a Los Angeles-based stager, designer and vintage dealer. He has an unbeatable eye for unique vintage pieces that help to create one-of-a-kind spaces.

Cliff Fong / @cliffspot

Designer Cliff Fong creates spaces that feel ultra-relaxed, lived-in and refined. Working with many A-list clients, such as Ellen Degeneres, Fong has a collected style that often features a unique collection of contemporary art.

Anthony D Argenzio / @zioandsons

Anthony D Argenzio is the creative director behind Zio & Sons, a New York City-based creative collective. Zio & Sons has a love of vintage, and they manage to create spaces that somehow feel both rustic and modern.

Oscar Bravo / @oscarbravohome

San Diego-based designer Oscar Bravo is the master of budget-friendly design solutions. His spaces tend to be crisp and colorful yet also classic. He's also another one to follow on Instagram stories for hilarious and entertaining daily updates.
