3 instagrammers i love


Instagram is a wealth of design inspiration and there are oodles of talented people to follow.  On the last Thursday of each month, I will be sharing some of my favorite design accounts.

Carol Estes (cestesdesign), is a designer living in Southern California. Not only is her home gorgeous and constantly evolving, but she has an equally inspiring mountain cabin as well. Her photos are works of art and her still lifes could be paintings…

Maria Carr of dreamywhiteslifestyle, is an online shop owner and blogger that I have been following for years. She lives in a French farmhouse inspired horse ranch in Northern California.  Many of the beautiful French linens, baskets, and soaps in her gorgeous photos can be purchased at dreamywhitesonline. I’ve purchased everything from old French bottles and blocks of soap, to white Christmas stockings and a mini vintage sled. I know you will be as charmed as I am by her stunning home, bevy of animals and bucolic lifestyle.

Those doors and floors!

Last, but certainly not least, is one of the first Instagram accounts I followed.  Angie Wendricks of countryroadliving, lives in a tiny 700+ square foot house on 7 acres in Indiana.  She and her husband designed and did much of the work on it themselves. They live with their two bulldogs Bug and Olive and her account documents their simple, beautiful, minimalist lifestyle. I only wish I could live like that!  Her pictures are stunning and you will be drawn in just as I was to their simple way of living.

I’m kind of obsessed with Angie’s table and chairs…
The white walls, neutral palette and high loft like ceiling allow this tiny home to live large…
Texture is so important in a neutral space…
I love Angie’s still lifes…

If you are already following these talented ladies, bravo!  If they are new to you, enjoy browsing their Instagram feeds for beauty and inspiration.

    • I know what you mean. There are so many cute puppy and horse pictures I can’t stand it. I think her sister breeds Frenchies so there are lots of adorable pics. I’m so in love with those squishy little faces!


  2. How fun, I’m only following Carol’s account but LOVE, LOVE Maria’s and Angie’s too! Thank you for sharing the work of such talented ladies. I was admiring for years Maria’s kitchen but didn’t know the source 🙂
