Instagram is full of flower inspiration!
When I started writing Buckets and Blooms, I had great aspirations of writing all of the time. That has not happened. But, what has happened is that I have found myself lost in Instagram-looking for inspiration! In just a few clicks, I might have discovered a flower designer’s adorable child or house renovation and before I know it, I feel invested. So, when I get busy clicking away on flowers, I get lost(and maybe distracted looking at a light fixture or finding a new artist)- but somehow, always make it back.
What I really want to tell you is- MOVE OVER Pinterest- Instagram is here. Instagram is for ‘the creative’ with a short attention span. Or, anyone with a short attention span. It is for the visual. Most of the flower feeds are not using iphone pictures- they are using real cameras. To have these feeds is a lot of work. It’s not always a simple photograph that someone just snapped. Lots of thought and effort has taken place.
I want to give you a head start. These are some of the people I search first when looking for inspiration. From color combinations to containers and much more-there is so much to be discovered on Instagram. This list is not conclusive or in any order. It is just a great starting point for you to search. Don’t be fooled by the number of followers. Some accounts are smaller and still deliver outstanding inspiration- they have just not been discovered by the masses.
So, take a minute or two and find these accounts and follow them. Like their pictures. Don’t be a stealth Instagramer. Like the pictures. Here we go!
