Guess what?



I know.

I get.

You are probably thinking WHAT? When did that happen?

I can’t help all the book writing.

I have a lot to say. 🙂

Books are like children.

They are all your favorites.

But don’t tell the others….shhhhhhh. This one really might be my favorite.

Maybe because you helped me write it.

Isn’t it beautiful? And the best part? It’s FUNNY, too.

Here’s one of my favorite quotes from the book.

Over a year ago, Melissa from The Inspired Room and I wrote all of you to ask you what questions you wanted to be answered.


There were literally zillions of them. We read them all and thought you were amazing and then we picked 101 questions to answer—starting with probably the number one question we get asked about: where do I put the couch.

We answered them like we were having coffee in fun, relatable, understandable answers.

And a few random stories thrown in.

(please act surprised). 🙂

There are HUNDREDS of pages full of the relatable, honest, do-able answers to all the questions.

And we start with the couch.

And where to put it.

And how to fit it into your room.

But that’s not all.

Melissa and I discuss space planning and paint colors and accessories and styling and organization.

And the best part?

It’s all the questions that YOU wanted to be answered.

The book just released and you can order it on Amazon here. and from Barnes and Noble here.

Thank you for being such an incredible support and encouragement to me.

None of this would be possible without you.

And the best part?

    I have a question that I forgot to ask. Where do you purchase the vitamins you take! I could sure use some! You amaze me with all you do. It looks like a must have book.

    Thank you for never leaving your blog readers behind. Many bloggers who have written books neglect their blog family afterwards and you continue to nuture your blog with the same enthusiasm and love you always have. Thank you.

    Congrats KariAnne & Melissa on your newest book release! Thanks very much for this awesome giveaway prize! My question is: Are there any "do's and don'ts" in colour scheme coordination for a cohesive flow from room-to-room?

    Congratulations! You're such an inspiration! You know why? Because if I'm being truthful, I have zero interest in home decor. I'm really just a baker and a gardener. But still, I get your emails and click over and read!

    My friend loved the book so much that I just had to give her mine! So now I am waiting for one to be delivered. Then a friend of hers stopped at her house and saw the book and said it's an amazing book. Most likely another order! You and Melissa have hit the nail on the head with Where do I put the Couch! Great job to two of the BEST

    KariAnne, you must operate in a 26 hour day to be able to do all the amazing things you do! Where do you find that time to write another book? I want the next book on how you have the ability to do all that you do!

    Girl! How on earth do you have time to write a book, keep up with a blog, and take care of your family? Do you sleep????

    My biggest decorating question usually deals with furniture placement. It's always too easy to fall back on the old idea of putting all the furniture against the walls. Guidance about that would be helpful.

    I’m thinking about ordering the blue striped chair you have but is it comfortable? I can’t just decorate for looks!

  20. Image for Becky Becky

    Oh the questions I could ask. How on earth do you deal with 7-foot-off-the-floor (8 foot tall) ANGLED windows. On an angled wall. The angles don't match either?! With max 3 inches of wall above window. I have no problem ignoring the north windows, but the south one?!? What a PAIN! My living room is unusable at certain times of day/year!

    Congrats on the book! In a new house and looking for a new couch & chairs. Trying to figure out how to place everything around a corner fireplace. Looking forward to reading your book! Never miss a post! Love your books & your blog!

    You and Melissa are two of my FAVORITE authors so I can't wait to check out your latest book! Currently, I'm trying to get the courage to strip my slipcovered sofa and loveseat and wash the covers. Anyone out there have some tips or advice?...

  23. Image for Helene Helene

    I have a couple of Melissa’s other books and have enjoyed them. I’m sure this one will be a great help too....may get two for my daughter in laws!

    Of course it’s funny, and maybe a story or two is included! We would not settle for anything less, it just wouldn’t be KariAnne. Congratulations Pat

    Congratulations on the book! So exciting! I'm looking forward to reading it! How about ideas for decorating a large wall when you don't' have tall pieces of furniture to take up any of the visual space?

  26. Image for McKenzie Allyshia McKenzie Allyshia

    Oh my gosh that is so exciting! From the snippets you shared I can tell the book is absolutely gorgeous ♥ I can't think of a home decorating question at this moment... we are currently looking for a place to either rent or buy so my creative board is not in use whatsoever. Actually, wait. What do you do if you have a lot of different decorating ideas/styles but are unsure which to go with? How do you choose what to follow?
