Can you believe it? It’s only been 6 1/2 years since Instagram first launched, shaping people’s perception of what’s going on around them dramatically. No matter the subject, art fanatics, fashion devotees, interior enthusiasts, animal lovers and more have since been served image, after image, after image, of things that tap right into their desire. On a visual level, emotional connections are built within a matter of seconds. As a result, consumers, no matter their location, have a huge influence on a brand’s success story. A platform developed that now gives a stage to whoever chooses to perform on it. As Instagram grew, so did the variety of accounts that it gave birth to. Not only brands understood how powerful this tool had become. Individuals such as bloggers or people like you and me joined in to tell a story and started curating their day to day lives, personal visions, or unique aesthetics. Beautiful accounts blossomed, granting people a glimpse into often very personal worlds that had the power to inspire us and broaden our vision. If you start scrolling through all the people you are following, you will probably discover that they are located all over the world – Korea, California, Sweden, Spain, South Africa….you name it.
Remember when finding inspiration for your kid’s bedroom wall color was a nightmare? Stacks of magazines were browsed through before finding a tiny image of something similar to what you had imagined. The beauty of Instagram lies in its extensive geographic accessibility.
Why I write all this? Well, I must admit, I am obsessed with this platform! Whenever I find a minute or two, you will spy me fiddling with my phone, scrolling through picture after picture on my personal feed.
I am following 1,109 people.
I rarely see a post twice.
I am a fanatic.
What I love most is the fact that I am allowed access (virtually) into the most beautiful homes out there. If I am thinking about investing in a new set of dining chairs, I tap the rainbow-camera icon button on my phone and am opened up to an entire catalog of interior ideas. If I am uncertain about where to place that beautiful, yet bulky antique buffet my grandparents handed to me, I am offered 1,652 solutions and given multiple DIY repainting tips en passant.
So with all that in mind, I thought it would be nice to share some of my favorite Hamptons Style inspired Instagram accounts with you, hoping that they may provide you with some new ideas for future rearranging projects, or simply spoil your eyes on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

This account lets you enter the world of Melbourne-based luxury shop Franque. What you will find is stunning goods from candles to chandeliers, vases, and mobiles.
