Anyone that knows me will tell you that I spend a lot of time on Instagram. I meet new people, I post images there and I go there to seek inspiration (you can find me on Instagram here!). The latter of which is why I have assembled this handy list of Instagrammers who have got their color coordination on point! Here’s 12 colorful Instagram accounts to follow for inspiration.
1) Chelsea Foy
The creator of @lovelyindeed describes herself as a maker, blogger and adventurer, which is exactly what you find here! Bright, sunny outdoor pics combined with her creations and ideas is exactly why she is on my list of colorful Instagram accounts!
2) Gray Malin
Renowned photographer and New York Times Bestselling Author, Gary Malin has really bright, creative shots paired with imagery that screams #travelgoals.

Imagine rainbows and butterflies, but with fantastic style and strategic color placement in @studiodiy. I love how if you pick a specific color in one of her photos, you can see it continue through her feed consistently. This is one of my favorite things about colorful Instagram accounts. So clever and adorable all at the same time!

Instagram bio says “artful living” and that is the ultimate way to describe The House that Lars Built. The bright colors and uplifting imagery have me wanting to spend more time developing my own creativity. I love checking out colorful Instagram accounts for this reason, I always feel so motivated and inspired afterwards.

When I’m having a bad day, I sometimes browse Leslie Schneider’s @splendid_rags account. This is the perfect place for style, travel and creative inspiration. The account’s bio mentions “optimism” which is funny, because that is the exact vibe I get everytime I visit!

6) Will Taylor
The interior design author, creative consultant and creator of @brightbazaar, Will Taylor creates serious life goals in his imagery! Will’s interior shots have me eyeing up my apartment to see where I can add color. His travel shots have me scanning flight prices. And his beach pics have me scanning Google Maps for the closest shore. Perfection!

I love Xuzzi! There is rarely a picture here that doesn’t contain a smile or bright shade. Such charisma is present through this entire feed, which is why this is the perfect account to watch when you’re having a bad day. Xuzzi’s photography makes me want to plan a party, like immediately.

8) Maria Marie
One of the most colorful Instagram accounts out there is @cestmaria. Her photography is so bright and clean, I love how scrolling down through her photos leads to different color themes in a sense. For example, rolling from a blush shade to an ocean hue to a light lavender, gradually through a few days of content. So cool!

9) Jen Gotch
Jen Gotch is such a boss, as the Founder & Chief Creative Officer of @shopbando (which is also very colorful!). Also Jen is hilarious, I’ve laughed out loud several times at many of the posts, while others continue to inspire me with bright colors.

A quirky account from Brooklyn, NY, @littledrill combines color bursts with clean minimalism. The photography here is really fun to look at. I feel like a lot of this content would be great to feature within an art gallery exhibit. If you enjoy creative style and innovation, you will love it here!

11) Bri Emery
Emery’s @designlovefest is bright and real. A creative director, product consultant, blogger and traveller. I describe her feed as real because her photos tell her story, which I enjoy. You feel like you are following along, but not just for the dinner parties and vacations. Recently she posted about depression, which really resonated with me, having had people in my life impacted by this.

12) Caroline Lee
Caroline’s @teamwoodnote account is dreamy and bright, with beautiful shots of Los Angeles and various travel destinations. Her photography around LA I find to be very inspiring and summery, especially as I am from rainy Vancouver, BC.
