In­spi­ra­tion from In­sta­gram

The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE - By Jura Kon­i­cus

In­sta­gram time is a daily rit­ual for many peo­ple in the de­sign com­mu­nity who find in­spi­ra­tion and just plain en­ter­tain­ment from scrolling through end­less vi­gnettes, rooms and gar­dens.

“In­sta­gram is like hav­ing a wide-an­gle lens on cul­ture to­day. It is a peo­ple con­nec­tor through im­agery,” says New York de­signer Char­lotte Moss. She en­joys dis­cov­er­ing “what oth­ers think is beau­ti­ful, hu­mor­ous, in­spir­ing or thought pro­vok­ing.”

Check out the feeds of Moss and four other stylish peo­ple, as well as the ac­counts that they look to for their daily de­sign fix.

Los An­ge­les in­te­rior de­signer, au­thor and home fur­nish­ings de­signer Kelly Wearstler (@kel­ly­wearstler) rec­om­mends:

Artsy (@artsy), a data­base of the world’s lead­ing gal­leries, mu­se­ums and artists

“De­sign is fall­ing in love over and over again,” Wearstler says. “Artsy cov­ers ev­ery­thing in­spir­ing in art and de­sign to­day, bring­ing new emerg­ing artists and de­sign­ers into the spot­light along with time­less art-world sto­ries. It’s a vis­ual feast.”

Life­style blog­ger Can­dace Ouris­man (@se­cret­ly­fancy) rec­om­mends:

Aerin Lauder (@Aerin), style and im­age di­rec­tor at Estée Lauder and founder of Aerin

“Born into Amer­i­can beauty roy­alty, Aerin Lauder de­liv­ers her own brand of as­pi­ra­tional all-Amer­i­can good­ness,” Ouris­man says. “Im­pec­ca­ble flo­ral ar­range­ments, pic­ture-per­fect place set­tings and por­traits of the beauty heir make up this must-fol­low ac­count.”

The HouseBeau­ti­ful ed­i­torin-chief So­phie Donel­son (@so­phiedow) rec­om­mends:

Pho­tog­ra­pher and de­signer Mar­tyn Thomp­son (@mar­tyn­thomp­son­stu­dio)

“A top interiors pho­tog­ra­pher, he has a tex­tile biz, too. In both he’s known for cap­tur­ing a beau­ti­ful mess,” Donel­son says. “His posts are a great con­tra­dic­tion in my stream, which is filled with per­fect mo­ments.”

Ed­die Ross (@ed­dieross), ed­i­tor at Bet­ter Homes & Gar­dens and ex­treme hoarder of beau­ti­ful things rec­om­mends:

English ar­chi­tec­tural, in­te­rior de­signer and au­thor Ben Pen­treath (@ben­pen­treath)

“This is clas­sic English style at its best,” Ross says. “There are beau­ti­ful gar­dens and flower ar­range­ments with an easy, re­laxed ca­su­al­ness. This su­per-tal­ented ar­chi­tect sees the beauty in it all.”

New York in­te­rior de­signer and au­thor Char­lotte Moss, (@char­mossny) rec­om­mends:

Foodie, fash­ion­ista and au­thor of books about New Or­leans Deb

Shriver (@de­brashriver)

“Me­dia maven Deb Shriver is a self-pro­claimed jazz hound and photo buff,” Moss says. “Her hon­esty, her wicked sense of hu­mor, her down-to-earth Southern-ness and her in­tel­li­gence make her In­sta­gram en­ter­tain­ing and thought-pro­vok­ing.”

Fi­nally, one of my own (@ju­rakon­cius) fa­vorites:

Phyl­lis Trevor Hig­ger­son (@hen­hurst) is a dec­o­ra­tor and blog­ger who lives in New Eng­land and fills her feed with a calm, fresh New Eng­land style.
