Last week I shared 21 of my favorite blue and white home decor finds.


Questions about my rug.

Questions about my chairs.

Questions about my pillows.

Which is an amazing and wonderful and incredible thing because I love questions.

But did you know that only half of my house is blue and white? The rest of it is neutral and khaki and white and cozy.

So today to celebrate all the questions that have gone before and (hopefully) all the questions that are to come?

I thought I’d share some of my favorite finds from the rest of the house.

The cozy part.

Here are 21 of my favorite cozy home decor finds.

(total aside: Is anyone else watching All Creatures Great and Small on Masterpiece? It is so SWEET.)

I wanted to start with the family room last fall.

Because y’all.


It is so thick that your toes sink down into it. The pattern looks like a hooked rug and it looks so high end for the price.

It also comes in blue and white, too (I know we aren’t on those colors right now, but I couldn’t resist.).

It goes perfectly with pillows like this one and this one.

And these baskets like this one and this one (it’s GIANT and perfect for stacking throws).

And this throw and this throw.

I loved the rug so much I have it in the downstairs office, too.

And these chairs.

I got so many questions about them when I posted them last time and they sold out so quickly.

But they are back in stock now.

They are super comfortable if you are shorter like me. My feet touch the ground in these and they are so sturdy and easy to clean.

The nail heads and the little casters on the feet make the chair look high end.

Another cozy question I get all the time?

This rug.

It’s perfect if you have carpet in your house, too. I added this to the bedroom I made over for my mother and it goes with everything.

Like this chandelier.

And this throw.

And pillows like this and this one.

And this bedding.

And speaking of cozy.

I just ordered the best mattress pad ever.

It’s so cozy for the price.

I also love this rug and this bench and this throw and these shams.

And these side chairs.

And this ottoman.


Here’s to all the cozy all the time.

You can shop my entire house here.

And just know I’m here….

…if you ever have any questions. 🙂

    KariAnne, I have watched all of All Creatures Great and Small with my PBS Passport. I loved it and hope that there will be a second season!

      There was a similar conversation on another blog that I follow. One of the commenters is from England and she assured me that yes, there will be a season two. We aren't big TV viewers but this program is worth the time.

    I d just like to say I stumbled across the thistle wood blog by pure chance (I'm a gardener) much to my delight. Not only do we see crafting.. My 2nd fav all time pass times but home decor ideas... Which I'm totally terrible at... So 6 months in with thistle wood and many more to come. Thanks for the inspiration 😊

    While your blue and white rooms are quite striking, I like the ones you have shared today better! They feel more like a “home” with lots of cozy character. It’s as if they tell YOUR story while the blue and white feel more like you have shown us a superb version of the hottest trends. The two tone area rug from overstock is a great tip as I have noticed it in your pix before. . Do you think it would hold up well in a vacation rental property?

    Yes, I'm watching and loving All Creatures Great and Small!! Also watched the original. Enjoy everything you do!!

    I have a blue and white 1st level. Could you send some ideas for wall art. My living and dining rooms looks much like yours.... you were the inspiration. Your ideas are always very affordable and great!

      I'm watching both of them and I also started watching The Long Song. So many good programs on all at once. All Creatures is my favorite and my entire family is hooked.

    Love your home!! It looks so cozy, warm and inviting. Keep those pics coming. And yes, I, too, love All Creatures— a wonderful and endearing story. I have always enjoyed reading James Harriot books. And the countryside in the show- oh my— I think I could live there!!

    Can you tell me about the wall behind the bed that looks like panel. Did you do this yourself? Is there a post on this? And what is the color? thank you. I love your post and home !

    Hey there! I love the tan/white rug you have in your family room and office. We need a neutral rug for under our kitchen table. Is it actually looped? We have a big yellow lab who sleeps right next to the table and his nails have ruined other looped rugs. I would also worry the chairs would pull at the loops. Thanks for ALL of your amazing ideas shared in such a fun way. Jenny

    Beautiful home, KariAnne! I loved it all. It looks like the perfect shopping catalog...and, I did click on a few things I just may need to add to my cart from the Thistlewood collection.❤️

    We have been watching All creatures great and small and are loving it. Such great characters! Because of your recommendation we are also watching Larkrise to Candleford for the last couple of weeks(our library has all the seasons)and we are currently part way through Season 3. I am sad that there are only 4 seasons. I haven’t enjoyed a show this much since Downton Abbey. The characters are wonderful(and in some cases quirky)and the story is right up my alley. My husband loves it too! Thanks for the recommendation 😊

    Love all the neutral coziness. It just speaks calm to me, and that is what I have in my home along with some frrnch blue greys. The bold blues and bright colors are beautiful too, but give a feeling of more energy. How delightful to have both in your home! You can go into one area for serene and calm and another area for fun and excitement! Thanks again for sharing your finds, KariAnne!

    I am loving the throw with the tassel corners but can't find a source for it. Loving this second version of All Creatures almost as much as the first
