My Three Favorite Instagrammers

When it comes to social media, there’s really only one platform that I truly enjoy utilizing on a daily basis: Instagram! I love capturing the perfect image for that little square and using the editing tools to make it look juuust right. For me, my Instagram goes hand-in-hand with my blog. It provides a means of sharing something that either doesn’t warrant a full blog post, or that I want to share immediately, and then expand upon later on the blog. It’s also a great way for me to remember places that I’ve gone to and enjoyed, and I love being able to look back on fun memories (like a little virtual photo album). Aside from posting, I also just love scrolling through my feed and seeing so many pretty and inspiring images…plus, I’ve found some of my favorite new restaurants and sweet shops through other New Yorkers’ Instagram posts!
So when the B Bar announced that their February blog link-up question would be: “Who are your three favorite Instagrammers and why?” I was thrilled! Now, I won’t tell you my real favorite Instagram accounts, mainly because they are all run by cats (you really do need to be following @augustandchicken), but if we’re talking about actual people’s Instas, I have a few good ones to share. Read on to see the three people whose photos I particularly love to see pop up in my feed: 

@parisinfourmonths
Carin Olsson is an insanely talented photographer, so it only makes sense that her Instagram account would be absolute perfection. She has an amazing eye, and that combined with the fact that she lives in probably the most photogenic city in the world, well…it’s a recipe for Instagram perfection if I ever heard one! Carin’s pictures are always well-composed, light, and bright, with a sophistication and understated femininity that I find very appealing. I like that most of her photos aren’t “composed” shots, but rather things that catch her eye while at restaurants, out for coffee, or exploring her amazing city.

@notetosarah
Sarah Tolzmann is an art director for Ralph Lauren, and her brilliant eye for design and all things stylish is readily apparent in her Instagram account. I love her evocative, elegantly shot and beautifully edited New York city shots, and I also love seeing glimpses into her charming and sophisticated Upper East Side apartment. I find her style extremely inspiring – it’s grown-up and timeless, but still fun. I appreciate that she focuses on natural vignettes and things that catch her eye while out and about, rather than styled shots.

@kapitomullerinterior
Alyssa Kapito and Vivian Muller, the designers behind NYC-based Kapito Muller Interiors, have a gorgeous and inspiring interior design aesthetic, which is well-represented in their Instagram account (I love their work so much that I interviewed them for the blog, as you may remember!). As you can see, they have cultivated a clean, warm, sophisticated aesthetic which is reflected both in their Instagram feed, and in their design work. I absolutely love seeing peeks of their current projects, their chic office space, and their comings and goings around NYC. They take wonderful shots of Upper East Side doors, stoops and architecture (which I love), and also: they take the BEST #shelfies 🙂 They have excellent taste and a great eye for chic design, and seeing their well-lit, crisp, and beautiful photos pop up in my feed is always a pleasure.
