Friday Five: Favourite Instagram Accounts

May 30

Hey guys! I hope you’ve all had a great week and now welcoming the weekend with arms wide open. Although I have no major outdoor plans, I’m totally stoked about the posts I’m currently working on. There’s inspiration coming at me from everywhere…one such source today is my Instagram feed. Yes, Instagram is my current addiction and today I’ll be sharing 5 firm favourites of the many Instagram accounts I’m following.

1. @jelliottblake

Jenn Elliott Blake is the talented event designer, prop stylist and blogger behind A Blog Named Scout. I have only recently discovered Jenn’s blog but as soon as I did, I made a beeline for her Instagram account and it certainly lived up to my expectation. Her Instagram is more than just a collection of beautiful images. It’s a peek into the life of ‘Jenn The Stylist’ on the job…rainy day frustrations included. An impressive, beautifully styled documentary in pictures; I feel like I’ve been going on her lovely assignments too!

2 . @leaftv

LEAF TV is all about living, eating and fashion. Among the beautiful images of food, flowers and the sea, they also share their 30 – 90 second signature perfectly edited how-to videos, ranging from cocktail mixing to hair styling to useful DIY projects like making bookends for your home. I’m sure you will agree that it’s more fun to watch a ‘how-to’ than to just read it! See DIY Animal Bookends Video here.

3. @mittlillehjerte

The Instagram feed of this Norwegian blogger is brimming with images of the classic Scandinavian interior…with a hint of very pale pink. It’s a refreshing break from the trending ‘pops of colour’ you’ll find in the interior-inspired images on my Instagram feed. Janne’s calming black & white images are uniquely peppered with the palest pink hued, copper toned and gold accessories. Look out for the cutesy little ballerina girl too!

4. @gourmandeinthek

Simply put, I absolutely love how beautifully curated Sylvie Shirazi’s Instagram is. Many of you know how much I love good food and gorgeous images of it. The most impressive thing about the Gourmande In The Kitchen Instagram, is how very real the food looks in these images. None of the overly filtered shots that gets everything looking all artificial and plastic. Just images of real food; prepared, styled and photographed by a real food lover. Foodie alert!

5. @wwwdecor

I have no idea who is behind this Instagram account but that certainly doesn’t stop it being one of my favourites. I enjoy the variety of decorative home accessories they’ve been posting and what’s even better, is that they often include the source at which you can find these items. I’m sure many of us have experienced that “Oh my God, this is so amazing, where can I find it” moment before getting sucked into the black hole that is the world wide web searching for ‘a needle in a haystack’. Those of us who have, will really appreciate this.
