Here’s a look at the top 10 reader favorites from 2023! We’re talking decorating tips, design ideas, and some seriously amazing decor steals—these were the posts you couldn’t get enough of.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

At the end of each year, I love taking a trip down memory lane and checking out which posts YOU loved the most. It’s like getting the inside scoop on what you’re into, so I can keep the good stuff coming!

I typically try to write a mix of guides, shopping tips, antique info, and home makeover posts. This year, I knew I was starting my kitchen remodel, so I didn’t have as many home projects as I have in the past (a girl needs to save up, right?!). And it should therefore come as no surprise that many of the articles I wrote were directly or indirectly related to the kitchen…lol!

So, if you’ve been a reader for a while, take a wild guess at which posts made it to the Top 10. If you’re a newbie, no worries—this is your chance to catch up and see what you might have missed!

We’re counting down to the #1 post published in 2023, and I’ll even spill the beans on the #1 most-read post from last year that you just couldn’t get enough of. Plus, we’ll peek at your most-loved decor items.

Ready for the countdown? Just click on each title to dive straight into the articles!

10. How High To Hang Pictures: Everything You Need To Know

One of the guides I wrote last year focused solely on artwork! Hanging pictures at the right height is one of the few design rules that should never be broken. If they’re hung too low they’re awkward to look at, and hung too high and they can feel disconnected from the rest of the room.

This guide will give you all of the information you need to find the perfect height the first time. Yes, there’s an easy formula for each situation!

9. Cast Iron Vs Fireclay Sinks – What You Should Know

Most people consider a kitchen sink a long-term investment. After all, homeowners don’t typically change out their sink unless there’s a problem with it, right? So that means you’ll want the sink you choose to hold up and look as beautiful 10 years from now as it did the day you bought it!

In this article, we’ll compare cast iron and fireclay sinks so that you can make a decision that’s best for you! Plus I’ll tell you one thing about the Kohler Whitehaven cast iron farmhouse sink that no one else will!

Wondering what to expect in the world of home decor this year? I’ve rounded up my personal list of 2023 interior design trends to watch for the average homeowner. From moody hues to bold wallpaper and aged metals, this is shaping up to be a great year!

7. Design Guide: The Right Wall Sconce Height For Every Room

When installing your sconces, you never want to get to a point where it’s time to install the junction box and you have no idea where to put it!If it’s installed too high, it primarily lights the ceiling and often, makes the bulb visible (which is a no-no). If it’s too low, it lights the floor and the top of the fixture is visible (also a no-no).

So here’s a guide for wall sconces in the hallway, entryway, living room, kitchen, bathroom, and even picture lights.

6. Nostalgic Italian Ranges – What You Need To Know Before Buying

5. The Best Fandeliers To Beat The Heat (And Still Look Beautiful)

Many homeowners love a ceiling fan for all the right reasons. The feeling of cool air and the whirring sound of fan blades are great for sleeping! Not to mention, fans cut down on your air conditioning bill.

But let’s be honest, they aren’t exactly pretty to look at. Most of them have a two-dimensional look to them and are just big blades. And those that do have lights seem to have them as an afterthought and they aren’t particularly pretty.

Well, I have a solution. Meet the fandelier!
