Social Style: Nick Olsen On InstagramAuthor:Candace Abbott
For those who say traditional is a thing of the past, they haven’t made themselves hip to the designs of rising star and Instagram funny-man, Nick Olsen. But for those that have gotten a glimpse of what he can do, it’s important to keep up with his tongue-in-cheek day-to-day posts on Instagram.
When Nick isn’t mixing bold animal prints or fresh patterns with classic Louis chairs or other 17th century-style furnishings, he’s doing fun things like practicing his attitude arabesque with his friends…on the streets of New York, or grooming horses with fitting names like “Fancy.”
His Instagram is a combination of work and play and work that looks like play and you’ll surely want an invite. Nick is the cool guy (check out the ripped skinnies and sunnies) that you’ll want to hang out with because he’s clever, capturing meta moments with polaroids, and he takes some of the most smashing and thought-provoking snaps of his home city that you’ll find. He’s not shy about his love for Gotham City.
Naturally, he devotes a fair amount of his feed to showing off his true love of design. Check out the swatches that are inspiring him, the mind-blowing work he does with velvet (his fabric of choice), and all the little things that he wants to add to a space. Who wouldn’t want a rainbow of teacups?
Did we mention he likes to travel to the “Left Coast” and soak up sun at the Parker? Well, he does. So that, as well as his appreciation for the “selfie,” are reason enough to follow him.
