Given the current situation, it's only natural you're spending more time than usual being (digitally) social. To help refresh your feed, we did some scrolling to bring you the /brief's Spring edit of travel and design content inspiration — from destination visuals for your trips-yet-to-come moodboard to arresting underwater art-cum-immersion therapy— worth bookmarking. Enter: Our definitive @ list of who to follow [besides us] right now.
A self-described “visual and culinary storyteller,” two-time cookbook author, tablescape master, and interior decorator Athena Calderon’s grid is just really good — i.e. good food, good interiors, and good ideas to copy.
This Hawaiian-based water photog and visionary videographer captures everything beautiful about the sea in ways we didn't think existed, from spectacular marine life to gravity-defying waves.
If Armie Hammer, luxury automobile ads from the early '90s (including a shot of BMW's unforgettable tagline, "The Ultimate Tanning Machine"), and hard-to-find coffee table books are your thing, welcome home.
Natalie Obradovich Photography
Is the Amalfi Coast (and places like it) your conception of paradise? Well, we found your gram go-to. You can practically taste the Aperol Spritzes while swiping up on these snaps by Cali shutterbug Natalie Obradovich — a strong contender for our generation's Slim Aarons.
Design Milk Travels
Tag along for creative journeys from the minds behind Design Milk, the cult (albeit an insanely popular one) blog that delivers what they call Vitamin D — in other words, a daily dose of modern architecture, furniture, technology, and basically everything else that looks cool.
As the @ implies, Júlia Juste's digital escapism is anything but ordinary. With an off-the-charts-good taste-level, what she calls her "never-ending travel wish list" — with a focus on dreamy Spanish resort spots — will be your wish list, too.
The Adventure Handbook
The living-on-the-edge travel writing site — aka an "independent collective of creators" — has social features photography prioritizing authenticity over posing. A random posting sample includes a Sri Lankan temple pool, sand-sliding in Brazil, and a mysterious Russian train.
We've long admired Nina Urgell Cloquell's subtle homage to Céline circa Phoebe Philo, so it's not shocking that we're equally vibing the Insta pics of her plant-based, genderless cosmetics line, mid/night 00.00. Expect flawless skin, a tonal color-story, and very sensual sand.
