Our Favourite Instagrammers
A Quiet Style

This week our favourite instagrammer is @aquietstyle. Emma's floral, fresh and sometimes rather moody feed is full of gorgeous compositions and styling.
We talk inspirations, mottos and other lovely galleries to follow for a some beauty in your feed each day!
Describe your style in 5 words
This is easiest to answer using words other people have to describe my photos, rather than my own:  Peaceful, simple, floral, moody and calm.

What are the tools you use to create your feed?

I would say up until recently, I used 90% iPhone, but in an effort to improve my camera skills, I am now taking a lot more photos using my Canon.  With regards to editing, I use Lightroom, again that is a recent change, before that it was VSCO.

Who or what inspires you?

Not surprisingly, nature is a huge inspiration for me, especially flowers.  I have always been a flower lover, in fact, I was training to be a florist when I got pregnant with my eldest daughter, hence they make up a massive part of my instagram feed.  My children too, I love photographing them, trying to capture every day moments, but with a three year old, it isn’t always easy!  Finally, books; interiors books mainly but also floristry and botanical books.

If you had an extra hour in the day what would you do?

In a perfect world, I  would just sit quietly outside in the sun, and look at a book, refuelling my motivation and inspiration.
What is your personal motto?

A couple of years ago, a friend said to me “Live for the moment”, that really resonated.  I am a born worrier, so it isn’t easy for me, but I am trying to do it more and more.

Who else should we follow on instagram? Who's your top three?

This is a toughie, there are so many beautiful accounts, but I am naturally drawn to a moody palette, and even though it isn’t something I do much myself, I also love food photography.  So it would have to be @local_milk, @marte_marie_forsberg, and of course for a good measure of florals, the amazingly talented @swallowsanddamsons.
Thanks so much, Emma! Make sure you go and take a look at the beautiful @aquietstyle gallery.
