A full home tour that'll knock your socks off! - The Graphics Fairy


Do you ever wish there was an official guidebook on how to decorate your home? When is there too much stuff? When is there not enough?
Karen, who goes by The Graphics Fairy on her blog, has it DOWN. I recently had the privilege of spending a few days with her during the event and took advantage of the chance to shoot Karen's home.
Guys, this home is so inspiring. I'd call her style upscale vintage minimalist. She has JUST the right amount of everything, it's productive AND beautiful!
There's more to this tour via the blog link, however here's lots to get you started, loaded with some decor advice.
I only have one question... where's her BAD junk?! :)
