Today I am sharing an in-home house tour with KariAnne at Thistlewood! Her home is not only gorgeous but it is also amazing!
I think it is likely that you know my incredible friend KariAnne at Thistlewood Farms. Why am I sharing a house tour of her gorgeous home? Well, I have lots of good reasons.
Why I Love KariAnne at Thistlewood Farms
The first reason I am sharing a house tour of KariAnne’s home is that I love collaborating with her. I am not sure how one person can be so positive, energetic, kind, smart, motivating, and helpful. But she is!
I first met KariAnne at the Haven Conference almost four years ago. She was my mentor!
Actually, she still is my mentor. She just might not know it. We don’t need to tell her …
Every once in a while you meet someone and you just click. Every conversation I have with KariAnne is motivating and inspiring! Every single time. And we talk a lot!
Of course, here home is amazing too. You saw the iconic photo above with the coolest blue and white rug ever. I swear KariAnne has singlehandedly made her rug famous.
I love this seating area and these blue and white striped chairs are fabulous. That white table in the back was a huge thrift store find! You can find the DIY here.
Let’s step outside and look at the front of her home. Hello Texas! Isn’t this wonderful?
Look at her gorgeous potted plants! They are stunning!
I love this photo below. The OFFICE sign on the door and the bead board and moulding in this room are my favorite!

Check out this staircase. Oh my goodness. I am dying to know who figured out the molding on the side of the staircase. See how it matches up with the stair levels? Oh my!
This is my friend KariAnne. She is funny, and kind, and sweet, and so wonderful. I even sat her next to my boys at dinner last weekend at our Dinner with Friends in Waco. Even though she is five feet tall , and my sons are 6’4 and 6’5, I knew her personality would shine with my super tall sons.
And can I just say that I was right!
Here is a peek into her dining room. I knew we were kindred souls when I found someone else who dared to be different and paint their dining room a dark color.
Isn’t this wonderful? I really love her rug and those striped dining room chairs are just wonderful!
I think you can tell a lot about a home when you visit the kitchen I LOVE that KariAnne used a darker color on her island. I want to cook in this kitchen someday.
“Hey KariAnne, can I come cook you dinner sometime in your beautiful kitchen?” (Let’s see how she answers that question!”)
Here is another view of her kitchen. Look at those baskets on her island. They are fabulous.
“KariAnne, where did you get that flat basket?” I want one!
I love the blue and white ceramic planters with all of these gorgeous flowers.

In addition to her amazing home decor, KariAnne has a lot of wonderful Diy’s on her blog. Two of them are seen in this photo.
The first DIY is How to make an obelisk from an embroidery hoop. How cool is that? You can see it in the photo below.
KariAnne also has a great DIY titled How to paint brick steps. I love her gray painted stairs. They really look great!
