The Coolest Mums on Instagram
Instagram is brimming with inspiration, and though we tend to focus on the design eye candy and foodie photos we see there, it's a top-notch place to cull ideas and tips for every facet of the way we live, from travel to parenting. In honour of the stupendous mums that make family life so magical, we've taken a deep dive into Instagram and rounded up a collection of our some of the hippest mums around. Scroll through to see how these cool mama bears capture their lives on camera.
Sepia-toned minimalism and family crafts summarise this dreamy Instagram feed. Amanda Watters describes herself as "just happy," and that's exactly what you'll feel when you scroll through this well-curated feed. On her blog It's the Little Things, Watters journals about everything from homeschooling to handmade essential-oil play dough. You'll definitely walk away with some must-try ideas for your home.
Sheree Commerford, the fashion mum behind the delightfully stylish Instagram account @captainandthegypsykid, describes herself as a creative, a stylist, a designer, and a curator. To put it simply, everything she touches, we love. From her laissez-faire beachside family home on the Northern Beaches to her brilliantly blonde mane, this mum extraordinaire defines bohemian chic.
When Los Angeles lifestyle guru Jenni Kayne profiles you on her curated website Rip and Tan, you know you've made it on the cool list. Hannah Henderson, the goddess-like mum and entrepreneur behind hit Venice Beach tastemaker General Store has style for days. Her earthy, artisanal shop boasts a thoughtful selection of apparel, home accessories, and apothecary goods, and her Instagram feed features a blissful stream of her gorgeous children and life. We're definitely hooked on what Moda Familia calls "the Hannah effect."
Elena Perminova's Instagram feed is a fairytale of motherhood, It-girl fashion antics, and philanthropy. Perminova is the longtime companion of Russian media magnate Alexander Lebedev. Her flawless complexion and hot-off-the-runway couture ensembles make for an irresistible feed.
A self-described cynical optimist, Hedvig Sagfjord Opshaug is one of the most effortlessly stylish mums in London. Originally from Norway, Opshaug showcases her street style stardom and her beautiful daughter on her Instagram feed. Garance Doré is one of many photographers who capture the chic grace of Opshaug.
Graciela Gauna's multicultural family lives in a darling beachside home in the Netherlands. Her Turkish husband and two boys feature in most of her playful Instagram photos. The nutritionist-trained mom, who is half Argentinian and half Dutch, spends her days writing, photographing, and being grateful for her loving crew.
@Gparrish, a.k.a. Ginger, is one of the hippest mums we've ever met (via Instagram, that is). She has just as much energy as her little ones, if not more, and relishes in her playful, active life. On her blog, The Parrish Place, Ginger writes about her family, photography, and all of the things she loves (and doesn't love) about life. She's also an epic hat designer and dons most of her designs on her feed.
Anissa Zajac, the wife, mother, and interior stylist behind the House Seven blog and @housesevenblog Instagram account, is a vessel of dreamy, rustic, chic design whose seventh home looks as though it was designed for a J.Crew holiday shoot. We love seeing her baby girls running around the family home, doing crafts, and baking holiday treats.
