Photographer Birgitta Wolfgang Drejer

Ready to see some BEAUTIFUL spaces? I was reading today in the new issue of Living & More (my absolute favorite German interiors magazine) about photographer Birgitta Wolfgang Drejer and OH MY is her home beeeeaaauuuutiful! I especially love her Deborah Bowness "Books" wallpaper in her living room. If you have access to Living & More, please pick up issue Nr. 8 November/Dezember 2008 and turn to page 24 and prepare to start drooling.

Birgitta Wolfgang Drejer has worked as a photographer for the last 20 years covering everything from fashion to catalogs and has lived in exciting cities like Paris, Milano and Miami. For the past 10 years she has specialized in interiors photography, in fact I have a book called Nordlicht2 that I'm ADDICTED TO that was shot by her. As you can see from just a small glimpse of her portfolio here, Birgitta is nothing short of amazing, capturing light in ways that only a seasoned photographer can -- photos so emotionally touching that you can imagine yourself in that exact space, perhaps lounging around having tea with the homeowner. I just LOVE her feminine sense of style, seen in both her photography and in her home which is featured in Living & More this month. If the lighting is good in my apartment tomorrow, I will photograph a page from this issue showing my favorite corner of her home... So stay tuned for that tomorrow.

After reading Living & More today, having a long lingering lunch with my friend Esra, and spending time this evening with Petra, I am more motivated than ever to continue working on my apartment now as I was lagging behind on a few projects here lately and Birgitta's work and my friends have greatly inspired me to press forward today. I love this about good friendships, magazines and the internet, all the people we meet that bring us these gifts of motivation because honestly, sometimes I cannot motivate myself so I need my friends and those whose work I find online (like Birgitta) to give me that push. This is what is so amazing about putting your work out there and allowing your creative energy to flow into it, presenting your raw natural talent -- you never know who will be affected by it! I bet Birgitta didn't wake up this morning thinking she'd inspire some blogger like me and many of you reading this looking at her beautiful work here today. You just put it out there and see where it lands. It's a beautiful thought, don't you think? To just do good work and enjoy the fruits of that labor. I think nothing quite feels better than learning that someone found you and gained something good from that. I'm so glad that the talented Birgitta has placed her work online for all to see, please view her website for her complete portfolio. Gorgeous!
