We’ve just dealt with lockdown (and then the end of lockdown and then lockdown again, a curfew and another curfew). In 2021, we dream of wide-open spaces, nature, wooden tables and natural light. Here are 3 Instagram accounts to follow for inspiration, decorating ideas or even… purchases.

Take the leap: Escapist to the Country

Houses steeped in history all over Europe for under 500,000 dollars (about 410,000 euros) – sound interesting? This is the original and ultra-satisfying idea (to scroll through) of @EscapistToTheCountry, an Instagram account packed with real estate treasures in France and around the world: Italy, Spain, Holland, Norway… Each carefully selected and highly desirable find redirects you to the real estate agency in charge of the property or the owner to contact.


Draw inspiration from others who have taken the leap: Stéphanie Zwicky

Good vibes, light and a happy frame of mind. Welcome to the account of Stéphanie Zwicky, a fashion and lifestyle influencer. Between two fresh and colourful looks, this mother of two (Lino and Alba) is generous with decoration tips and photos of her aptly named “happiness house” #ZwickyHappinessHouse. Passionate about the art of living, she left Paris to move into this friendly space, located 50 minutes from Lyon.
