Welcome to your weekly dose of Instagram inspiration

LISTEN 01:53

We’re perfectly aware that our first nominees for the Instagram lifestyle inspiration section have been guys, but we’ve also featured a couple of ladies that know their way around a car while also maintaining a classy attitude. So for this week, we’ve picked Los Angeles-based Mirjam Flatau and her minimalist yet highly awesome Instagram feed. Yes, there are cars. Of the fast and sleek ilk, in case you are wondering.

Who is Mirjam Flatau?

Well, she’s a lot of things, including an art director and obviously, content creator. Mirjam Flatau, or simply Mija, studied Media Design and worked as a senior editorial designer for a science magazine before switching to art director and photographer. But hear this out: cars are her passion and her favorite thing to do on a weekend is take road trips in a classic car. We think we’re in love.

If you’re curious what exactly tickles her fancy when it comes to cars, here’s the answer in her own words:

I love the sound, the design, how it smells. I could talk about cars and I could sit in a car (preferable vintage and a muscle car, haha) for hours and just enjoy the ride.

She also believes that the way to go in life is to keep in simple and that everything happens for a reason. Mirjam grew up in a small town in the south of Bavaria, Germany, so German is her first language. She also speaks English, French, and a little Italian. Oh, and we almost forgot: her favorite cars are the 1968 Charger, 1968 Mustang Fastback, Countach, Miura, and pretty much every 911 built between 1970 and 1985.

On that note, we’ll let you in the company of some posts we curated from her Instagram account. Which is @mija_mija, by the way, and a must-follow.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
