As museums, galleries and creative studios close their doors amidst a new wave of lockdowns, we’re looking closer to home for inspiration. Here are six Instagram accounts to fill your feed with fun design, dream interiors and contemporary art.
A collection of real and imagined spaces, @_dreamspaces brings together architecture from across the globe. From futuristic concept bars to elaborate gardens and installations, this whimsical account allows our minds to travel where our feet can’t take us.
@pinkessay is a moodboard of curated objects, which celebrates fresh and thoughtful design. David Eardley and Anna Theroux Ling, the creatives behind the account, select pieces from a range of aesthetics and design schools. Think kitsch colours, Memphis-style furniture and not a Billy Bookcase in sight.
From furniture that bends the rules to furniture that breaks them, @farine_furniture puts a new spin on the phrase ‘baked goods’. This tongue-in-cheek account presents a spread of croissant brassieres, baguette sliders and half-baked candle holders. Design has never looked so delicious.
Feeding into the current renaissance of still life art, @fruitassembly offers a feast for the eyes. Combining restagings of paintings from Flemish masters with contemporary reinterpretations of the genre, this account is a must-follow for anyone with a sweet tooth.
For art lovers curious about the face behind the canvas, we recommend @piece_with_artist, which sets artworks and their creators side by side. Artists are encouraged to share their own snaps using the hashtag #piecewithartist, making this the perfect place to discover new art.
@the35mmdiary is a digital photo album for analogue photography, collecting 35mm prints from amateur and professional photographers alike. The grainy ISO, rich tones and pleasing colour gradient of this account forms a love letter to film, delivered via Instagram.
