I am constantly surprised how much creativity is out there. When I check my Instagram account, I stumble upon one inspiring image after the other. Hence I recently started my blog series ‘People who inspire me’. And today I want to introduce you to yet another inspiring person and her Instagram account: Please meet ‘Starkstromhippie’. The creative mind behind this account and cool name is Astrid. Astrid runs a creative agency and is a fond lover of vintage, plants, and interior design. All of these resonate with me so no wonder I love her account. But judge for yourself!
Whenever I see a new pic of Astrid on my Instagram feed, I feel like this could be my home too. A lived-in mix of vintage furniture, plants galore, moody light – all of this is really what I love too. We also share the same love for earthy colours and textures, a good cup of coffee, and ethnic textiles. It also helps that Astrid has very good looks! Not to mention that our Urban Jungle book is part of her home. Happy me!
Astrid is based in Cologne, Germany, and shares regular bits of her daily life. I like the fact that her pictures are not staged, not styled for Instagram. They are just the way they are. Which makes her account so authentic and inspiring. I mean isn’t that what we all look for – inspiration that comes from a real life? Staged images and styled rooms I can see in glossy interior magazines. But on Instagram I prefer the real shit – excuse my language! It just felt adequate here:-)
I won’t blabber too much. I think her pictures speak for themselves. I can only invite you to check out her Instagram account ‘Starkstromhippie’ and follow her along. I promise a daily dose of inspiration for you interior, vintage, and plant lovers out there! Have fun!
