Episode 120: KariAnne Wood

KariAnne Wood joins me around my virtual kitchen table. And I can’t tell you how much I wish we were able to sit around my actual kitchen table because this girl is golden. You can’t help but like her. She is such a nice person and she makes you feel so special. One thing I love about her is how great a storyteller she is. 

KariAnne is a home decor/life style/DIY blogger. She has authored two books—So Close To Amazing and The DIY Home Planner. We talk about what it was like to jump out of her comfort zone, how to find your decorating style, what has helped her embrace who God made her to be, and what she has learned about God through decorating. Plus, I learned in this conversation that she talks to furniture and is a thief—you’ll want to listen to this one!

Takeaways From Our Conversation:

  •  Is there anything that God is calling you to jump into or out of? Are you a natural jumper? Do you live in the tension between change and comfort of norm? I find myself so afraid sometimes when it comes to jumping out of something comfortable. I think its because I'm afraid of failing. Afraid that I'm going to mess things up for people I love--fear of disappointing others. But I long for adventure. I long for new experiences.

  • How to find your decorating style: You can take cues from how you dress but at the end of the day simply buy what you love.
