In the spirit of celebrating the year that was 2022 I thought it would be fun to put together a list of favorites.

Your 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. There are a few fashion items and organization items and home decor items and a whole lot of rugs.

I put together the list as part of the end-of-the-year series with Leslie from My 100-Year-Old-Home.

Drumroll, please.

Here are the top 10 readers’ favorite things of 2022.

10. Family room rug

Coming in number 10 is this rug from my family room. 

It is SO PRETTY in real life.

Truly.

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.

You can see the rug here.

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.

You can see the blue and white version of this rug here.

9. These blue and white striped chairs

Rolling in at number nine are these blue and white striped chairs.

Affordable. Check.

The CUTEST farmhouse legs. Check.

No back or bottom cushion so they always look neat. Check.

Good size and good value. Check.

You can see the chairs here.

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.

You can see them in khaki here.

8. These candles

I’ve used these candles for over a year and so many of you have bought them and loved them.

They come with a remote and a timer.

They are perfect for mantels and tables and centerpieces and lanterns and on and on and on.

You can see them here.

7. These food storage containers

Ever since I started eating more fruits and vegetables, I started looking for options for ways to make them last longer.

And I found these containers.

They have snap-on lids and they keep vegetables and fruits fresh for so much longer. I mentioned them back in July and you all almost sold them out online.

You can see them 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. These refrigerator drawers

If you are looking for extra storage in your refrigerator?

I found these extra drawers that you add to the shelves of your refrigerator.

They are super sturdy and even come with sliders to create compartments. The drawers roll in at number 5 on our list.

You can see them here.

4. 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.

You can see the rug here.

3. This set of blue planters

This was one of my favorite home finds of the year and I’m so happy y’all loved it too.

This planter set is so cute and it looks so much more expensive than it is. There are three sizes of planters and they have a drainage hole in the bottom if you want to use them for potted plants, too.

You can see the planter set here.

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.

They come in other colors, too. I bought them in the cream and I’m taking them on the cruise with me this week.

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.

You can see the rug here.

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.

And today on the last day of our end-of-the-year series, Leslie is sharing her top 10 table settings. You can see them all here.

    I am not surprised by the list. I have a few of them as well. Even a rug :) I have the striped chairs as well. One thing that I would like to mention is that the chairs get more comfortable the more you use them. I receive compliments on my decor whenever we have company.

    Pretty cool list, KariAnne! Another year filled with great stuff! Hope you and your family have a New Year overflowing with ideas, answered prayers, new experiences, and your heart's desires! 😍

    Smiled when I saw this today because the dusk to dawn lightbulbs you recommended a while ago were delivered about five minutes ago :)

    Loved the year in review! So smart to remind us of the lovely things you share. One question: where may we find/order the beautiful blue monogrammed hand towel featured under the three blue planters? These would be such nice gifts for friends. Thank you, KariAnne!

    Hi, KariAnne! I love the pants, and am all over the Amazon site ready to order them reading the reviews. There's conflicting information about sizing, though. When I look at the sizing chart, it looks like the measurements run a bit big for the sizes. (An XS has a 34" waist and a 48.8" hip.) When I read the reviews, some people say that they ordered their normal size and were fine, and others said that the sizes ran small. Did you order based on the measurements in the sizing chart? Your input is greatly appreciated! Thanks! Sue
