This week we asked YOU what Instagram accounts you follow for joy and inspiration––and you delivered.

Jasmin Perez  – April 27, 2020

We’re doing Best of the West a little differently this week: We asked you to share the Instagram accounts you’re following for inspiration––and you had some great tips. Here’s what you said:

Carly Ioakimedes: @shiplapandshells for home decor and garden inspiration in PNW.

Joyce Mayes: @ourlovelygarden serves up stunning garden eye candy.

Matt Bean: @conwayelectric‘s Instagram Stories are great. @TomSachs and @kookslams, because it’s a reminder of what isn’t happening to me.

Allyson Hagen: @museocanova for beautiful art––and you can pretend you are in Italy.

Natalia DeVore: Probably obvious, but all the NPS pages for the different West coast National parks: @zionnps, @grandcanyonnps, @capitolreefnps, and @yellowstonenps. I follow for sunrises/sunsets, stars, beautiful animals, and wide-open spaces to explore.

Christine Bobbish: @classetouriste for world travel inspiration (some of my favorite IG Stories include their series on horseback riding in Argentina and camping in Patagonia). @styleofsport for her trend roundups in active apparel, accessories, and gear. I also love @josecabaco, whose photography I share in my Stories often. He is the Global Creative Concept and Storytelling Director for Adidas Group. His feed has an impressive 29k+ posts! 

Gaby J Photography: @studioyeoreum for all the gorgeous fresh & dried floral designs.

Kelly Facer: I have a few––@Coastal_Living for home, style, and travel. @thegoodquote (founded by @roxannesvibe) for great motivational quotes and @doyouyoga, which offers hundreds of online yoga classes.

Amy P: @nightmoves_jt for desert dreams.

Plus, here are some of @sunsetmag’s favorites:

@kimballcreative: For a big dose of cuteness. She’s a mother of quadruplets, #tinytor, and chubby #von_ole. And she’s insanely creative. Don’t believe us? Just check out her kids’ Halloween costumes.

@JessicaMenda: Want to take a virtual trip to Taos, Venice Beach, or sunny Mexico? You’ve come to the right place.

@chefmelissaking: We love Melissa King for many reasons––but her incredible work with @wckitchen and amazing food shots make it easy to double-tap.

@bycolossus: For all the home design inspiration your heart desires.

@bloomandplume: Gorgeous florals + major drama, courtesy of Maurice Harris.

@haleboyd: For major style inspiration, and tips on how to shop and live a more sustainable life.
