So I stumbled across Karin Haas’ Instagram a couple months ago and fell completely in love. A very talented artist, Karin resides in New York, but her world is nothing like the dirty big busy (wonderful) city. Her aesthetics are bright and clean and playful as she shows you around, both in her own surroundings and with nicely curated mood images. She seems like the kind of person who got it together, people I tend to look towards for inspiration when my own life is a bit upside down. Now I just need to get my hands on one of her paintings. It would go perfectly with my pink couch.
