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!
// Design //
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 aesthetic + interior design work but also her great sense of humour.
Next up we have Annabode + Co, a husband and wife duo from Denver, Colorado. Their feed is full of images from houses 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 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??
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 shows us what it is like to be a local in New York City. Her pictures of cafes, bars + scenery that seems to be right outside her door, makes us want to pack up and jump on a plane to The Big Apple. Like now.
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 if you're in need of some sandy blue beaches or a wintery city skyline, her account has all the travel inspiration you could ever want.
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 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.
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.
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!
