Hello Pinterest addicts! Which I’m guessing is everyone, because why wouldn’t you be? Months ago, on the quest to ‘know myself better’ I answered some quick-fire questions about what I absolutely can’t live without, and at the top of that list was ‘Visual Inspiration‘. Be it through magazines photography, design, Instagram, stationery, beautiful textiles or of course Pinterest, having a part of my world filled with colour, pattern, hand-lettering and inspiring designers just makes it that little bit better, you know? And as a big lover of independent designers, I tirelessly trawled through my Pinterest account to bring you the best of the best accounts to follow for design, craft & colour.

Esther Thorpepinterest.com/origamiest | I’ve been following Origami-est for a long time, and am desperate to attend one of her workshops soon. There’s something about paper-folding that’s so relaxing and satisfying. Also on Esther’s gorgeous Pinterest: Project Inspiration for DIY projects, Creative Workspaces for some new-desk inspiration & Paper Folding Projects to practice those folds.

oh my clumsy heart | jewellery & minimalism

Oh My Clumsy Heart jewellery inspiration from Pinterest independent designers Inspire and Enjoy

Sophie Davies | pinterest.com/ohmyclumsyheart | Aesthetically, a completely different style to the other accounts I’ve listed, but I’m also so drawn to simple and minimal design, in particular jewellery. Sophie’s handmade timeless jewellery is a Pinterest addict’s dream, as well as her boards on Home Decor, Art & Fashion. On that note, why is it when I try minimal fashion, I just look boring and not stylish? Oh well….

Of course, there are some huge Pinterest accounts to follow too (who doesn’t heart designlovefest?), but personally I love being a part of someone’s visual journey  that doesn’t solely focus on the million followers they have – it must be stressful to pin for that many people right? Please do recommend more Pinterest creatives to follow below…
