It’s hard to believe that less than 10 years ago, the epitome of ‘cool’ was having a souped-up MySpace page — complete with lots of flashy, glittery gifs that said things like ‘cutie with a bootie.’

As ‘cool’ as it is to be a minimalist now, not all of these Instagrammers actually walk the walk. That is, their feeds are painstakingly curated to look ‘minimalist’, but you get the impression that they have a secret room in their houses where they stash all their other stuff.
That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite minimalist Instagrammers who are the real deal. Their feeds not only serve as great eye candy, but they’ll actually inspire you to downsize your life through their practical tips and advice!

This IG feed is just one of many platforms where The Minimalists share practical advice for living meaningful lives with less — they also have a podcast, blog, book and Netflix documentary!
If you think all IG accounts can be improved by pics of cute puppies, Emily Wang is a must-follow. She posts snaps of her two pups, Chibi and Kokoro, hanging out in her stylish minimalist LA apartment — making her feed equally adorable and aspirational.
