10 of the most creative and inspiring Instagram accounts to follow

The thing we love most about Instagram is that it gives us a chance to take a look at the alternative lives we tell ourselves we could live.

So, while we sit in traffic on the 55 bus, we can be wondering at the adventures of the woman who packed in the day job and went on a travelling adventure, or staring wide eyed in wonder  at the beautiful home of the girl who has left London behind for an idyllic life in the country.

And, while we are well aware that Instagram is all about presenting the picture perfect moments rather than a rounded impression of a person's lifestyle, we love to indulge in a spot of life stalking.

So, we have gathered 10 of the best Instagram accounts to follow if you're looking for an alternative view on life. These brilliant individuals have carved a different path and built a life that so many of us dream of, so take five and seek a little inspiration from their impeccably curated accounts.
