That’s right. I said it. I’m obsessed. Not in a cute gen Y “here’s a picture of my omelette #blessed” way, but in a deeply unhealthy, “LIKE LIKE FOLLOW LIKE GET OUT OF MY WAY OTHER MALL PEDESTRIANS I’M TRYING TO WALK HERE” way.
Not so much posting, just mainly following, if that helps. My feed is clogged with latte art, artistically poised sunsets, Scandinavian wall hangings and so, so many cats. I have to scroll for 25 minutes every morning just so I can see where I left off last night. That’s right, I wake up 25 minutes early to accommodate this sick, shameful habit.
I refresh at least 30 times a day. It’s my go to when I’m bored, or just plain procrastinating (or procrastigramming) (I’m sorry you had to read that).
But I don’t care what you think, random blog pervert (I’m so sorry please don’t leave me). It’s so damn pretty, I may just follow some more people just to spite you and your judgemental…judgement.
If you have this disease, like me, and have no intention with booting it, like me, I’m sorry, but I’m about to infect you something chronic. Just when your thumb was hovering over that unfollow button, condemning you to a life of outside activities, spending more time with loved ones and unforgettable experiences, I present you a compilation of my favourite (interiors) Instagrammers to follow, to send you scrolling into a dark void of likes, comments and follows.
Anya Brock, based in Bondi, Australia, has one of the most striking, tropical, and just plain happy art styles I’ve ever seen. Besides her portraits of crying models. But even then, the energy behind them is utterly infectious. http://www.anyabrock.com
Katie is one of the first accounts I started following when I signed up for Instagram: her artwork is so special. Based in Melbourne, Katie’s artwork explores the beauty and energy of Australia’s marine life. http://katiemckinnon.com.au
This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned Mia. Based in Sydney, Australia, Mia Oatley’s artworks are bold, edgy and have a unique Australian flair to them. She always brightens up my feed with her acrylic budgies and gorgeous abstracts. http://www.miaoatley.com.au
Mitch Gobel is a 25 year old artist from Melbourne, Australia. Mitch is a passionate conservationist – and now founding Director of MGRA Wildlife and Habitat Conservation. MGRA Wildlife and Habitat Conservation is funded entirely by Mitch’s art. Not only is he a fascinating human being to follow, but each piece is a fruit of his passion. http://www.mitchgobelresinart.com
So, after a quick interview down on the Peninsula, I thought I’d swing by Frankston shopping centre to grab a bite to eat. 2 hours later, I remembered I was hungry and left this little store. My entire Instagram feed compacted into a store! Everything I could ever want for styling a house is right here, and I find myself reaching for my phone just to scroll through their profile. I’m in love. http://www.myndinteriors.com.au
Pretty much a feed dedicated to sharing simple but creative ways to improve your spaces, like entertaining ideas, interior solutions and DIY. A great inspiration feed! Their little online shop can be found here: http://www.wholovesthat.com/shop/
This shop taunts me: taunts me from its “convenient” location in “New Zealand”. Well, “MintSix Store”, I “love” your products and styling, and it’s a “genuine” pleasure to scroll through your feed in “Australia”. (Did I use the “air thingys” right?) http://mintsix.com
Last but certainly not least – and not exactly a shop – the product of a newfound obsession with Kmart’s crazy cheap but crazy stylish homewares section. Here I was thinking Kmart was dorky but they actually produce some absolutely gorgeous products, and they’re affordable for poor uni students like me. The Kmart Forecast basically showcases all of Kmart’s new homewares range, and shows all sorts of Kmart product hacks. Definitely worth checking out.
Two NYC Boys, Noa and Will, own HomePolish, a HUGE US Interior Design company, and post the most gorgeous images from all their projects across the States.
Styling Properties is a Melbourne Based interior design service that specialises in styling properties for sale – which is interesting to contrast against a living space.
I followed Hong back in the days of Affordable Style Files – now she’s rebranded and her posts, about her family, her home and what inspires her, provide oodles of inspiration.
Villa Styling is a tropical account that makes me question my decision to live in Victoria daily. Like this account if you want to regularly have a reminder in your life that Victoria is super, super cold. 5 stars.
Jen from White Fox Styling posts images of her home and her projects – both gorgeous. ….I mainly follow her for her cats.
For those already in the know, The Design Files is an interior design Instagram account. I follow The Design Files for the articles, I swear. http://thedesignfiles.net
Yvette posts some beautiful pictures: of her own perfectly executed home, of what inspires her, and occasionally if you’re lucky, lemon muffins. http://thestylistsplash.com.au
Bri is an art director and the Los Angeles-based founder and editor of her lovely blog ‘designlovefest’. Her Insta feed has a beautiful indie style, and features a whole heap of DIY, food, travel, entertaining posts. http://www.designlovefest.com
JUST PLAIN BEAUTIFUL FEEDS
I couldn’t find a website or any page that this account is linked to so I’ll just say it: follow this account if you want to see damn pretty house photos.
And again, I give you pretty unassociated photos. Follow The 4224 Collective for prettiness.
I follow The Haus Lab for its gorgeous beachscapes, however they do post little craft goodies every now and then also. Another awe-inspiring page.
