One of the most challenging aspects of curating your own Instagram gallery is to achieve a consistent clean look (at least for me). So I often find myself checking other people’s feed to get some inspiration and to see how people with different styles make it all work. Personally, I am specially fascinated by minimalist Instagram accounts. I love how some of these Instagramers manage to put a lot of meaning with just a few elements on their photos.

So I’ve prepared a list with some of my favorite minimalist Instagram accounts. There is a little bit of everything, from travel to architecture, to lifestyle and food. And I hope you find some inspiration on their galleries as well!
