Lockdown may not have ceased, but our patience with confinement is starting to. Bored with our continuous surroundings, finding inspiration and motivation seems to be harder than ever when our days involve trivial tasks. Indulging in a book with a cup of tea, or cooking dinner while listening to a podcast is a momentary way of spicing up your day to day, but why not look to the app we love to shun; Instagram. 

Endless scrolls through the social media app may uncover content counterproductive towards our intentions, but with some repurposing and intention at play, we can use it to find the bouts of inspiration unaccessible within our homes. We've asked some creative minds to share the IG's they're liking during lockdown, starting with the Founder of STÉE Atelier, Estelle Orilland.

Whose Instagram do you go to...

If you're in need of a mood boost?
There are many I like and I always find some new ones… I really like Perrotin Gallery, which is based in Paris, N.Y Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai. It reunites and shows some great contemporary artists.


I have always liked the Col Community run by Lauren Faye, there are some beautiful images and colourful moods.

If you're in need of some creative stimulation?
Chair inspirations – I got a thing for chairs! I definitely do like chairs, and some of the world's artistic seats are all there!


If you want some innovative fashion content?
Rare Books Paris is an online fashion bookstore, and it's great! Double Magazine have great imagery, and are always featuring awesome photographers, I love it!

Definitely Suzanne Koller, the fashion director for M le magazine du Monde and cofounder of Self Service Magazine. I'm in love with all her sculptural still lives – especially the sets and scenery – and use of colours. It's the best styling!


If you're in need of a laugh?
I do like a lot Paolo Camilli, he's an Italian comedian and is quite hilarious. During this quarantine there were some really funny ones!


Fashion Week Frog is really funny as well.
