I can’t EVEN.

Today is THE DAY.

The day of CAPITAL LETTERS and cartwheels and joy and FINALLY getting to share with you what I’ve been working on.

Remember when I told you that the amazing tile brand Jeffrey Court came out to my house and we worked for a week solid with a team of about 12 people and created a project that I was OVER-THE-MOON about?

Remember how excited I was?

Remember how I told you that I wanted you all to be a part of it too?

Remeber how I couldn’t wait to share?


Are you ready?

Are you set?

Are you sitting down?

Meet my…..


It’s all me.

And my house.

And my favorite tiles.

And inspiration boards for projects for every type of design style.

32 amazing, incredible, awesome pages full of beautiful color photographs and design boards and inspiration that we photographed right here at the new Thistlewood.

Jeffrey Court and I put this together for anyone who’s ever looked at tile and hoped and dreamed and wanted to create a new space and a new look—but didn’t know where to start.

It’s like I wrote in the introduction to this book:

I once spent an entire weekend styling my dollhouse.  I cut out pieces of bright, vividly colored wallpaper and taped it to the walls.  I made furniture out of twigs and snipped pictures out of magazines, framing them with ribbon.  I filled the tiny dollhouse kitchen with salt-dough food, added rugs made out of woven construction paper and cut tiny white tiles out of typing paper.  I spent hours gluing them into a mosaic on the bathroom floor.

And when I was done?

Somehow all of those tiny pieces of paper and salt-dough and ribbon transformed themselves into something amazing.

That’s the thing about decorating.  Step-by-step, piece-by-piece, room-by-room—it transforms a house into a home.

But in truth?

Sometimes decorating can be a little challenging.  The entire process can be a little overwhelming.  We look at our bathroom or our kitchen and ask ourselves:  Where do I begin?  How do I get started?

That’s exactly why we put together this lookbook.

To give you a start.

To give you inspiration.

No matter your style or where you are on the journey—there’s a project for you.

I put together inspiration boards like this one.

And then we transformed them into projects like this one.

It’s the hutch in my kitchen with a new look from simple pieces of tile.

But here’s the BEST PART OF THE STORY.

We want to give you the lookbook for FREE.

All for you.


I know, right?

(total aside:  now do you see why I told you that you had to be sitting down?)

All you have to do is visit my page over on Jeffrey Court.

Just click here to access the page.

There’s a welcome video and some other projects and then at the bottom you’ll see a form like this.

Simply fill out your address and we’ll mail out a lookbook to you for FREE.

We only have a limited quantity to mail out.

So hurry to get yours today.

After that, we’ll have it available by PDF online.

I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did creating it.

Happy decorating.

edited to add:

I am so thankful for each of you.  The response to the lookbook has been so amazing.  We thought we had enough lookbooks to last a month—but we gave away our entire available supply of lookbooks in less than 10 hours.

No worries.  We will have PDF’s of the lookbook available in about a week.  And there will be special bonus features including additional projects and even more inspiration.

Until then thank you.

Thank you for sharing my joy.

Thank you for making this project such a success.

But most of all—thank you for being you.

PS  We released the Lookbook at Haven in the Jeffrey Court booth.  There was standing room only and we had a giant countdown to release it and I may or may not have danced around with it holding over my head.


What happens at Haven stays at Haven. 🙂

    Over the moon excited for you!!! I’m embarrassed to say that I only discovered you this year, and had no idea of all of your achievements!!!! Although, not surprising! I love that Jeffrey Court mentioned “saved by grace” amongst all of your accolades, but that is the most important one!!! Of all the people out there in blogger and IG Land, yours is the one I most look forward to reading in the morning over coffee. Can’t wait to get the look book!

    Now I know my problem... I think I only rearranged furniture and played with my doll house rather than designing/decorating it!! Actually WAY too many years ago to remember well, but I'm making up "playing house" and creating beauty in my old age!! Thank you for sharing all your beauty and inspiring us all, KariAnne, and congrats on your new collaboration!

    Hi KariAnne, The Jeffrey Court form does not have Canadian provines listed in its drop down options. Is it possible to have this updated please? I completed the form but picked the first state on the list as there were no provines. Thank you.

    I would love to get the look book but it won’t accept my email address. Keeps saying it’s invalid. I get this sometimes because it’s a .net but it’s very frustrating. There’s no where listed for me to call.

    I want to order the Lookbook, HOWEVER, the Captcha won't let me. Apparently MORE THAN TWENTY attempts to verify I am NOT a computer just isn't enough I stopped after about 20 tries.

    Thank you. With a recent kitchen remodel done (except for deciding on a backsplash tile) your look book will help me tremendously.
