I am an Instagram maniac and I openly confess that I spend too much time on filtering my feed. But it’s irresistible, when you have so many great accounts to follow! If you are ready for a dose of beautifully curated walls, inspiring photos and delightful shots – see my February recommendations!
@___joanneburkejewels____ / Based in-between Rome and London, Joanne Burke’s beautifully rare jewellery is like wearable art. Inspired with Ancient forms and motifs, the designer works with bronze and gold to create one-of-a-kind charms, earrings and necklaces. Note that her editions are very limited in stock – so if you want to put your hands on one of those charming, whimsical pieces, be fast! And, of course, her feed is equally dreamy.
@fjura_ / Fjura was stablished in 2005 by Simone Gooch in Sydney, and ten years later moved to London. The florist (who can fittingly be called an artist) is known for creating seasonal flower arrangements, whether in form of hand delivered bouquets or floral installations. Those are the most mesmerizing flowers out there. Can’t get enough.

@sarahandelman / Even thouh the cult Parisian concept store, Colette, closed its doors in December, it’s good to see through the eyes of Sarah Andelman, the co-founder. What is she up to next? Where will she go? I need to know.
@rarebookparis / I wrote about Rare Book Paris once… but it isn’t enough. The vintage books and magazines seller shared those incredible shots from an Issey Miyake catalogue recently. Too good.
AND, if you want to follow one more account on Instagram… why don’t you follow, ta-da, @designandculturebyed?
Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake’s new IN-EI collection for Artemide is sure to be the most beautiful lighting range this year. Developed using the same 3D mathematical programme used to make Miyake’s pleated clothes it’s a set of lights for table, floor and ceiling that arrive flat- packed and can be expanded to form a number of different shapes. They are eco-friendly as well as elegant: each light is made from recycycled plastic bottles and lit using LED’s
