With everyday feeling like a whirlwind, Irene’s account will surely calm those nerves. Her profile contains a ton of shadow play, sunlight, gorgeous interior and places that looks so zen you’d wish you were there instead. But fret not, because what better way to see the world then from the device at your fingertips? Her blog, Irenekly, features her everyday life and it is just as aesthetically calming. Not to mention, it is a good read!
Taking aesthetic goals to the next level is visual artist Adam Hillman, who elevates typical household items – think stationary to LEGO bricks to food – into gorgeous work of art. Playing around with colour, contrast and texture, each item takes around two hours to create and a lot longer to conceptualise. But what makes Adam’s feed truly charming is that he also throws in literal puns in his captions, which scores him major points in our book.
