New Book: Thistlewood Farms & The Inspired Room

New Book: Thistlewood Farms & The Inspired Room

Do you ever wish you had a personal decorator or maybe just a helpful friend you could count on to answer your decorating questions? I’m pretty excited today to let you in on a little secret.

New Book: Thistlewood Farms & The Inspired Room

My super talented friend KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms and I are thrilled to announce that we are writing a fun new decorating book together! A book we hope will be helpful for all of us.

We really want this new book to offer answers to YOUR decorating questions! In fact, we plan to answer 101 of our readers’ decorating questions in the book.

In case you didn’t know, KariAnne is actually releasing her very first book this fall. She is as crazy as I am to have a few books in the works at the same time. :) Yet our new book will be unlike any either of us have worked on before. We can’t wait to tell you more about it as it comes together in the upcoming months.

But first, we would love to know what questions you have, so we can start working on our answers! You’ll find the form to ask your questions, below. If your question is selected, it will appear in the new book.

No decorating question is dumb or too obvious, so ask away!

Exciting news! :)

Exciting news! :)

Hey y’all. So, I have no words. And that’s pretty rare around here. But, I can’t even with you guys! How did I get so lucky to have friends like you? SO GRATEFUL! The amount of support that you guys gave us for our rug designs in the Dash & Albert competition was UNBELIEVABLE!

You literally gave me and my girls (and our dog Jack, the aspiring rug model, heheheh) a GIFT we will never forget.

Because of YOUR encouragement, your comments, your stories, your shares, YOUR VOTES, you got our two top rug designs into the TOP TEN. Holy moly it was a tough competition! But because of YOU cheering us on, the incredible Annie Selke is going to make REAL LIVE GORGEOUS DASH & ALBERT RUGS with our original designs and they will be revealed at High Point Market NEXT SPRING!

Exciting news! :)

I just CAN. NOT. EVEN. believe this is for real. PINCHING myself over and over. I just never imagined little ol’ me having a design opportunity like this. My girls and I are so grateful for every single one of you who went out of your way to vote and to cheer us on to a new adventure. We can’t wait to share it with you.

Every rug submitted to this contest was so lovely and inspiring. Click HERE to see the rest of the finalists!

PS. These rugs will be available in Spring 2018–but if you’re on the hunt for a rug before then, I spotted tons of gorgeous Dash & Albert rugs at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Much love to you all!
