This week we asked YOU what Instagram accounts you follow for joy and inspiration––and you delivered.
Carly Ioakimedes: @shiplapandshells for home decor and garden inspiration in PNW.
Joyce Mayes: @ourlovelygarden serves up stunning garden eye candy.
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.
