New week, new portrait for my regular blog series ‘People who inspire me’. Today I want to introduce you to a very inspiring lady that I e-met on Instagram. Greta, or Gretafio on Instagram, is based in Leipzig in eastern Germany. Her Insta feed is a daily source of inspiration to me. In my eyes, her feed is the expression of an unpretentious, happy, and balanced life. It is laced with her aesthetics and her admiration for the nature and interiors. Looking both at her home and her adventures fuels my inspiration. And I bet it will fuel yours too!
Like in most of my previous portraits for this blog series, I don’t know the protagonist personally. Yet I feel a connection that is sparked through inspiration mostly on Instagram or their blogs. Greta is not writing a blog but she is an avid Instagrammer. And her eye for details and for light is special – thus it gives me new ideas. Not only ideas about stylings and home decor, but also ideas about working with light and taking better pictures on Instagram.
I need not mention that we both share a mutual love for plants. That was pretty obvious, right? Her home is very inspiring in general – I am drawn to her moody tones and darker colour palette, her lived-in style with a clear stamp of personality. Beautiful vintage furniture, collected art and decor objects, fresh flowers, and lush plants – they all live happily side by side in her airy Leipzig home.
I invite you to not only enjoy these pictures of her home here on the blog, but to follow Greta on Instagram too. You will get wonderful, moody inspiration on-the-go and a glimpse into the unpretentious, relaxed, and beautiful life of a regular human being – just like you and me. Enjoy!
