1. Elsie+Emma A Beautiful Mess


Elsie and Emma are two sisters in love with everything involving home decor. On their Instagram account they share home decor projects, homemade decorations and themed food recipes. Their feed is visually pleasing by using photos with the same soft colours, shades and tones which give their account unity.


2. Pantone


Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute declares a particular color “Color of the Year”. For 2018, the institute chose Ultra Violet, which was described by Leatrice Eiseman, the director of the institute, as “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” which “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future”.

The Pantone Instagram account crafts its beautiful feed through user-generated content.


3. Venture Onward 


Venture Onward is the Instagram account of a small branding agency dedicated to preserving the practices of early 1900′ in relevant fields of expertise: photography, branding, writing, design, and archiving. The agency was founded by Christian Watson, talented illustrator and gifted photographer.

Their Instagram feed is a mix of Christian’s illustrations and beautiful landscapes, portraits and still life photographies. The feed has a lot of dark, brown and grey tones balanced by whites.
