Five Favorite Follows: My Instagram ​Obsessions

If you are anything like me, Instagram can quickly suck you in (where did that last hour go, right?!) with all of the beautiful graphics, motivational quotes, and inspiring captions. For me, my day job is as a graphic designer, so I am constantly looking through Instagram to keep me inspired and also to keep up on trends within the different industries my clients work in – and my own!

There are many ways to inspire creativity, but one of my ways is checking out what my favorite brands and businesses are up to and I find that the quickest way to do this is through their Instagram feeds. This is often where you get to see behind the scenes content that you might not get on their website or other social media profiles.

Below are my current favorite Instagram accounts to follow:


Elizabeth Jones is an artistphotographer, and art educator from Texas and I recently discovered her Instagram through another designer, and I am in love. The vibe is subdued and honestly, just perfect. From her style to her photography to her lifestyle, her feed will inspire you and calm you all at once. While you are checking her out, head on over to her portfolio and check out her amazing collection of travel photos

Kelly, from A Side Of Sweet, is a food and travel blogger and her Instagram is heavenly. It has a vibrant, maximalist feel, which usually isn’t my personal style, but she does it so, so well. I love the amazing food spreads she shares and the details from the hotels she stays in. Her entire feed is impeccably edited and I always find myself stopping my scroll to see what else she has shared.

I heard about Melissa Coleman, the Minnesota designer and author behind The Faux Martha, in a magazine and now I can’t stop obsessing! Her house is stunning and all of her home decor is drool-worthy. I mean… Her recent Christmas images are gorgeous and the clean, minimalist feel of her feed is right up my alley. Definitely, one to check out! 


Karen is a social media marketer from Philadelphia and I have been following her for about a year now. With a nice mixture of images and inspirational quotes and sayings, her feed is always nicely curated. I love all the quotes she shares and her captions are always great!

Matt and Britt are the team behind the waxed canvas bag company Red House. The bags are honestly to die for (go get one!) and their Instagram account is equally stunning. I love their mixture of product and lifestyle shots. You can really feel their brand represented through their images. Also, how cute are these dogs?!
