Inside Instagram: Ivania Carpio


Ivania Carpio - @love_aesthetics - is a Dutch product developer, blogger and creator of one of the most followed blogs around: Love Aesthetics. Having previously featured Ivania's exquisitely designed Capsule Collection for BlackBlessed, we now take a closer look into her Instagram of pure, minimalist aesthetics that continue to impress on a daily basis.

What is the inspiration behind your minimalist photo collection?
There is no specific inspiration, just finding beauty in the daily things and capturing that in a little square.

How does your surroundings impact your creativity?
They are very, very important, if not the most important thing for me to be able to work. I can not think if there is visual stress in the form of clutter. I like to manipulate my environment as much as possible and surround myself with things that inspire me.

When and how do you decide to take a photo?
Strangely (for a blogger), Instagramming isn't a second nature, often after seeing something I think to myself, "I should have snapped that for Instagram." I like to enjoy life through my own eyes and not through the screen of my iPhone. But for Instagram I usually decide to take a picture when the thought of, "I have to show this to my friends" comes to mind.

What is your favourite quote on minimalism?
"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." - Antoine de Saint
