Farmer’s Daughter Interiors & Design is excited to introduce a new series onto our blog, titled “Saskatchewan Soul”. This series aims to highlight a variety of innovative and inspiring local businesses in South West Saskatchewan. We are a small province, yet we have so much to offer both tourists and local residents alike.

//  What is it?  //

Readers will easily be able to explore different categories such as food + drink, health + beauty, shopping, and events. Readers will learn more about the businesses they frequent and discover ones they may never have heard of.  So whether you’re new to Saskatchewan or were born and raised in the prairies, Saskatchewan Soul will have plenty for you to uncover.   

Businesses featured in this series will have the opportunity to inform readers about the origins of their business, what services/products they can provide and most importantly, why they chose to set up shop in Saskatchewan.

TOP TEN // 10 Instagram accounts you should be following in 2018

Ten Instagram Accounts You Should Be Following In 2018

With the holiday season behind us, we say good-bye to sleep-ins, copious amounts of delicious food, + the luxury of losing track of time.  Getting back into the swing of things can be a bit of a struggle - even when you have the best job in the world!  When we are feeling like we need an inspiration boost, we often look to social media to inspire us, and Instagram is still our favourite platform.  To kick off the new year, we thought we would share ten of our favourite design, travel, + lifestyle Instagram accounts to follow in 2018 that might just inspire you too!

@lindseybrookedesign

Lets start with Lindsey Borchard from Lindseybrookedesigns. Lindsey is an interior designer from Southern California and we are inspired by her light and fresh feed. Not only do we love her design work but also her inspirational and funny quotes.

Next up we have Annabode + Co, a husband and wife duo from Denver, Colorado. Their feed is full of images from houses that they have styled; typically featuring lots of natural elements like wood and greenery. We also love that they share the progress of their own home renovation.

We have been long time followers (and fans) of Cocokelly founded by Cassandra LaValle. Her content is so vibrant and unique, how could you not be inspired?? 

We have been long time followers of Cocokelly founded by Cassandra LaValle.  Creating original posts with a consistent (and contagious) aesthetic, we think her blog is one of the best in the biz.  Her content is so vibrant and unique, how could you not be inspired??  


2bpetra is one of our more recent discoveries. Petra's home is full of modern Scandinavian vibes and texture. We especially love her use of black as it is ironically refreshing. 

A interior designer based in Toronto (yay for a fellow Canadian!), Jacquelyn Clark of @larkandlinen has built one of the prettiest blogs around and her Instagram feed is no different.  Along with her own interior design projects, she often shares original recipes, quick snaps from a cafe she's sitting in, + her own travel photos (all impeccably photographed).  Her sweet pup Sage makes it in the odd shot as well :)


// Travel // 

@heydavina

Heydavina shows us what it is like to be a local in New York City. Her pictures of cafes, bars and scenery that seems to be right outside her door, makes us want to pack up and jump on a plane to the big apple.

thebelleabroad is run by Caroline, a southern belle traveling the world. From China, to Hawaii to London, it seems like there isn't a country Caroline hasn't explored. So this means if you're in some need of some sandy blue beaches or a wintery city skyline, this Instagram has all the travel inspiration you need.

theglasspassage is a collection of (the best - in our opinion!) travel images from all different instagrams over the world. We think it is pretty obvious why we love this account so much - the images speak for themselves! 

A Texan living in Berlin, @meredithbraden's feed is #travelgoals. In addition to selling her own prints, she also curates theglasspassage, a collection of (some of the best - in our opinion!) travel images from different photographers over the world.  We think it is pretty obvious why we love this account so much - her images speak for themselves! 


// Lifestyle // 

@proverbs31ministries

Proverbs31ministries reminds us to be thankful for the good, the bad and everything in between. It also resets our perspective on life when we loose sight of what is truly important.

Proverbs31ministries is a refreshing part of our feed, gently reminding us to be thankful for the good, the bad, + everything in between.  A mixture of quotes and scripture, the simple imagery helps us keep a balanced perspective on life when it gets tricky to see above the daily challenges we all face.


Shereadstruth is another Instagram that helps us to stay focused on what is important. 

Elana of @elanaloo is a photographer + marketing creative living in Hawaii (ok, we're just a little jealous...).  Her thoughtful writing with each post goes beyond the stunning imagery - truly a beautiful soul, inside + out. 


Of course, we hope you are following along with us @farmersdaughterinteriors where we share snapshots of our daily work, what's inspiring us,  + behind-the-scenes looks at our projects in progress.

@farmersdaughterinteriors

We hope you have found some Instagram accounts to add to your feed that will bring you inspiration + perspective as we move into a new year.  Feel free to share your own favourites with us in the comments! 

Wishing you an inspiring + successful 2018!

FRIDAY ROUNDUP // Favourite pins this week

Since Christmas is almost here (which we cannot believe!), we thought we would do a wrap of our favourite Christmas pins this week. 

Let's start with one of my all-time favourite houses - especially in winter - from The Faux Martha.

Being from Canada, it just wouldn't feel like Christmas to me without at least a dusting of snow...

My husband Shayne and I are planning a pretty low-key Christmas this year (my favourite kind) which will likely involve the candlelight service at our church, hot apple cider, poppycock, Christmas movies, and board games with friends + family.  With all the holiday hustle, it's too easy to forget the reason why we celebrate - the King of Kings coming to earth as a humble baby to bring peace, forgiveness, grace, and love for all people.  Its such an incredible story and I find it has new meaning for me every year - take some time to read it for yourself if you haven't in awhile:  Luke 2:1-20.

From our little family to yours, we wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
