In the spirit of celebrating the year that was 2021 I thought it would be fun to put together a list of favorites.
The things that I shared that you loved and brought home with you.
Are you curious?
If you had to guess what the top 10 things were what do you think would be at the top of your list?
Just between us? I had an idea, but I was TOTALLY surprised when I ran the numbers.
I guessed number one right.
But with numbers 2-10, there were a few that I had forgotten how much you asked me about them.
Here are the top 10 readers’ favorite things of 2021.
10. Family room rug
Coming in number 10 is this rug from my family room.
It is SO PRETTY in real life.
The top layer is cream and textured and looks hand-hooked.
I loved it so much that I bought it in a smaller size for the upstairs craft room.
The border is geometric with tiny squares and it’s the perfect contrast for the circles and geometric pattern in the center of the rug.
One last rug side note.
It also comes in blue, too.
It’s super similar to the rug (except the blue and white is reversed) from the post where I showed how to maximize your rug budget at the farmhouse.
I layered this blue and white rug with a sisal rug.
9. These blue and white striped chairs
Rolling in at number nine are these blue and white striped chairs.
The CUTEST farmhouse legs. Check.
No back or bottom cushion so they always look neat. Check.
Good size and good value. Check.
These same chairs come in four different colors including this set that I have in khaki.
I’ve moved them all over the house from room to room.
They used to be in the office downstairs before I moved them up to our bedroom.
8. This seagrass rug
This seagrass rug was number 8 on our list.
I get asked questions about seagrass rugs all the time.
Where to buy them? Are they affordable? Are they comfortable?
Yes. Seagrass rugs are a pretty, affordable, beautiful option and hold up so much better to me than sisal or jute rugs. They are not that comfortable to walk on with bare feet, but they clean up so well and are GREAT for high traffic areas.
7. This crewneck sweatshirt
This beautiful, amazing sweatshirt was number seven on your list.
As well it should be. I
t’s SO COMFORTABLE and it has slits on the side that move with you and look so cute with leggings.
And it’s on sale right now for under $10. Let’s GO.
You can see it here.
6. This embossed floral rug
Apparently, y’all are all about rugs (wait until you see number one). This rug from the back entry is number six on our list. It’s such a pretty rug and has layers of texture and pattern and color. You can see the rug here.
5. This dining room rug
See what I mean about the rugs?
The dining room rug is number five.
It really is the prettiest rug and comes in tons of different colorways.
4. These candles
These candles were one of my FAVORITE new finds this year. I bought three sets.
My mother bought them and loves them.
My mother-in-law bought them and loves them.
They come in a set of nine and operate on AA batteries and have a remote and a timer. All this for under $30.
3. This blue blazer
This was one of my favorite fashion finds of the year and I’m so happy y’all loved it too.
This blazer is only $22.
It’s so comfortable and has the prettiest brass buttons and it’s stretchy and looks so fancy.
2. These black pants
I wish I had a better picture of these pants. Seriously. I wore them on Christmas Eve. I wore them to lunch. I wore them shopping. I dressed them up and dressed them down and they are the BEST pants ever. They have pockets and are made of stretchy knit that holds its shape (I’ve washed them several times). You can see the pants here.
1. This blue and white rug
Please act surprised.
This rug has been number one THREE YEARS IN A ROW. It’s not even close between this rug and the rest of the favorites.
I fell in love with it the first time I saw it and I’ve ordered it for tons of clients and friends’ houses and it never disappoints. It’s hard to find a true navy and white rug and this one is the perfect color. It even has hints of gray to give the navy more depth.
So what did you think of the list? Agree? Disagree?
Was there something that you liked that didn’t make the top 10?
And seriously? Thank you SO MUCH.
For sharing fun finds with me. For shopping with me. For making life just generally a little more fun.
Life is so much better with friends.
Just. Like. You.
