My Instagram feed tends to change and evolve. I used to follow thousands of accounts and realized I was checking the app A LOT throughout the day. I’d get into bed at night and scroll for 30-40 minutes, you guys! It was a large chunk of my day that I was spending unproductively and I was using it as a way to wind down at night, but it usually had the opposite effect.
While it’s still my favorite app for inspiration, I’ve edited down my feed for two reasons. One being that I’ve made a conscious effort to spend less time viewing other creative’s work to make more time for creating my own. Second, quality over quantity in every aspect of life ALWAYS wins. I decided that if I’m going to spend my time looking through Instagram, every post I see should be inspiring and engaging in some way.
I love following accounts that you can so clearly tell the person is doing what they love and have a fresh perspective on life. I thought I’d share a few Instagrammers that currently make me happy and inspire the heck out of me with every single post as I’m scrolling through me feed. I’d also love to hear who your favorites are, so place them in the comments below!
PRODUCT DESIGN + LIFESTYLE
Mür Lifestyle | This collection of simple, beautiful, and functional home goods are styled in the most dreamy way. I didn’t even know it was a shop when I first came across their account because the pieces are styled as small details of daily life instead of your typical product shot.
FOOD + PHOTOGRAPHY
Now Forager | Oh, do I love a good food feed. As a former pastry chef, food photographer and writer Teresa Floyd knows just how to capture food at it’s loveliest. She’s a Kansas City native, and I always enjoy seeing this city through the eyes of a talented photographer.
LIFESTYLE + HOME
Thimble and Cloth | I first found Lindy Dodge from her home tour on Design Sponge a few months back. Lindy and her husband are incredibly handy and have a beautifully renovated home full of specially crafted items. She also has an online textiles store of mudcloth pillows and indigo-dyed blankets that I can’t get enough of.
STYLE + TRAVEL
Hey I’m Kate | Kate Ogata is the San Franciscan blogger of The Fancy Pants Blog, with a cool, effortless, and somewhat edgy style. She keeps it real. Her outfits are affordable and attainable and she’s always hitting up the next cool spot to eat and shop in San Fran, one of my very favorite cities to visit.
I want to know your favorites, too. Let’s hear ’em!
