When we think about mood boards on social, we usually think of platforms like Tumblr or Pinterest, but Instagram seems to continue to attract these anonymous accounts and give them the space to thrive in front of fresh audiences. For our 8 favorites, the curation vs. creation approach is paying off in dramatic increases in followers and engagement. Be it era-specific feeds, overtly artistic, or just plain moody, we rounded up our top 8 mood board accounts you might not follow, but should.
