The ultimate list of colorful Instagram accounts to follow

With over 500 million users and counting, Instagram can be a minefield to find new accounts to follow. And with the new algorithm firmly (and frustratingly) in place, it's getting even harder to discover some fresh, original, colourful meat. Don't get me wrong, there's no denying the appeal of the clean and simple VSCO aesthetic. It's been taken on by millions for a reason, but how many times can a girl really look at an obsessively arranged flat lay on a marble before it becomes a little blah?

Not all of us have have ultra tanned silky smooth skin to show off and have other things on the agenda - colour. Yes folks the rumours are true! Colorful Instagram accounts do infact exist - if you know where to look for them! So no matter your tastes—food, architecture, fashion—there’s something out there that will entice you to brighten up your feed. Here's FFD's ultimate list of colourful instagrams to follow.

@mirandamakaroff

Possibly my favourite account in the history of instagram, this Spanish artist and designer has the most inventive and colourful style I've ever seen. Constantly breaking rules and boundries, her #OOTD's are just as interesting as her sense of #Aesthetic. Be prepared, Miranda is all about the collabs so be preapred to pine over everthing she wears and creates.

@afashionnerd

It's true! If Wes Anderson and Gucci had a baby, that baby would be Amy Rolland AKA A Fashion Nerd. Her quirky and fun sense of style matched with her INSANE editing capabilities makes for one of your new favourite intstagram accounts. What's more is she's a total boss too.

@lellopepper

One of the first accounts I fell for, artist Elise Mesner has a knack for turning everyday objects into something more. A girl after my own heart she plays with everything from loaves of bread to cracked eggs, these are her weird and incredibly wonderful creations.

@charlottelovely

@teklan

This girl can legit find beauty in everything, and I mean everything. From shower curtains to doorhandles, this Stockholm-based interior architect has an eye for the brightest things in life.

@d.c.ceja

@jimmymarble

It's all about that aesthetic after all! From regrams, nature shots, and the occasional bit of nudity, this LA director/photographer's feed has something for everyone.
