Instagram’s Newest Official Account Will Be Music to Your Ears

Instagram has been our social media bestie for more than four years now, allowing us to capture vacations, dinner dates, random selfies, music fests and so much more. From emoji hashtags to gorgeous collage creations, the photo sharing platform has already provided us with endless ways to express our creativity, and now the company is offering up another: musical exploration — “from those who create it to the community around it.” It’s time to dance to the beat of Instagram’s drum with a new account that is more audio than visual.


Introduced Wednesday, @music is an account directly from Instagram dedicated to “capturing and sharing the world’s musical moments.” This feed will take a look at the global music experience in two ways. First, the profile will be a spot to showcase musical talent, whether that’s showing a different side of well-known acts or introducing followers to up-and-coming artists worldwide. The tuned-up account will also highlight the music community as a whole by spotlighting various music photographers, album illustrators, fans and even instrument makers. Essentially, this is Instagram’s MTV (well, at least the ’80s + ’90s version of MTV).

Currently @music solely features images, but we’re hoping as it develops Insta vids will be incorporated as well. Because what’s music without sound and what’s @music without a little BTS video of Taylor Swift’s upcoming tour or a 15-second live feed from June’s Governor’s Ball?? Useless, that’s what ;)

While we don’t want the account to turn into an excuse for concertgoers to pull out their phones/tablets even more at live events, Instagram’s music-themed extension of its weekend hashtag projects does have us excited for all the talented community content that’s sure to come. Now press play — err, follow — on @music’s profile and get ready to jam.

Will you be following @music? Let us know in the comments and also give us a few double taps while you’re at it.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
