Our 10 Most Popular Instagrams of 2018

It always feels a little strange for us to look back at the previous year each December; when you run a publication, not to mention a major annual event, your mind is always consumed by thoughts of what’s ahead. And yet, it’s now a Sight Unseen tradition to spend the final week of December reflecting back. Today we’re turning our lens to our favorite social media platform, Instagram, to share the 10 images you loved best in 2018 — which will go no doubt go down in history as the year that not one but TWO colorful tiled bathrooms topped our best-of list (ditto our #2 spot last year). We’ve joked a few times in the recent past that we should just turn Sight Unseen into a bathroom blog, and now that joke is hitting a little too close to home… Let’s just hope living rooms come back in style in 2019.
