Every December, I enjoy sharing a couple yearly recaps- favorite things from the past year and standouts that can be found throughout our home. In keeping with tradition, today I’m sharing YOUR favorite home items I shared this year, based on your purchases (and boring analytics that Emmett deciphered me, ha). It’s always fun to see what was well-received, popular, and most inspiring over the course of a year… some things are even repeats from last year’s favorite things post. That always makes me feel really good, because that means I’m sharing and selecting classic items that withstand the test of time. I also like knowing some of my favorite things in our home, ended up in yours as well. I’m thrilled that some of these home items are bringing you joy and beauty, too. Click through to see the top 10 home items I shared in 2021… some of them surprised me! Here they are in no particular order…
#1 // Decorative Beams
Most people are surprised to learn that our beams are decorative- not architectural. If you’re new to the blog or are just beginning to follow along- these easily and instantly added character to our living room. You can purchase them along with the decorative brackets for a seamless look.
#2 // Wireless Charging Block
This one was a surprise to me, but I love and use my charging block at my desk every single day, so it really is a good productive find! You also know I love a classic monogram. This was actually a gift to me from my mom! I’m pretty sure one of my gift guides tipped her off a couple years ago.
#3 // Zebra Ottoman
Our zebra ottomans were out-of-stock for almost a year, and as soon as they came back- everyone was equally as excited! These edgy ottomans are one of my favorite versatile pieces of furniture in our home. I’m actually thinking about stealing one of them from our living room to style in my upcoming office reveal.

#4 // Neutral Bamboo Rug
Another new addition to our living room ended up in this year’s favorite things… our neutral bamboo area rug! You can see all of my top picks in this post, but ultimately, I’m thrilled with the one we picked. Almost a year later, and it’s holding up beautifully to our dogs and muddy paws.
#5 // Door Hardware
This will be the door hardware throughout our entire home- once it’s finished and all of the interior doors have been traded out. We also have the matching set for our entryway, if you’re looking for an exterior combination. The shape and finish is so beautiful, and it’s HEAVY hardware- definitely high quality. You can also mix and match finishes, sizes, handle style, etc. There are lots of options!

#6 // Canopy Bed
The canopy bed in our guest room has been a hit since we installed it. Our house guests always ask about it, and it’s one of the pieces of furniture in our home I’m most messaged about. It also went out-of-stock for a majority of the year, but it’s back now… and it’s actually on sale right now (35% off!). Snag this affordable bed while you can, if you been waiting on it.

#7 // Vintage Wood Stool
I’m not surprised that my favorite Best of Etsy post I shared this year, had many of you running out to find vintage stools. It’s one of my favorite functional styling accessories in our home! Since it is vintage and one-of-a-kind, I can’t link the exact one, but feel free to check out this post, where I share 20+ vintage alternatives.
#8 // Fire Pit
Our fire pit is a few years old now (in fact, I gave it a makeover this past spring), but so many of you snagged it this year! It’s such an amazing feature to have in the backyard or on your patio. We use this quite often during the spring, summer, and early fall months! It’s gas, is controlled with an easy knob, and can either use a line to a propane tank- or it can be hardwired.

#9 // Daybed
This one was a major surprise to me! Given how much I complained about my experience with One Kings Lane customer service (ha!), I didn’t expect so many of you to buy the daybed I was after for my office. Obviously if you’ve been keeping up with that space, you know I ended up taking the custom route, but to be fair- it’s a gorgeous looking daybed. I hope those of you who bought it had a more seamless experience. I can’t wait to show you how I styled it in the office reveal in January!

#10 // Woven Shades
These budget friendly, woven roman shades make our living room windows look more custom and a bit more layered alongside our custom drapery. They’re one of my favorite textural window treatments! I’m glad you like them, too. We also used them upstairs in our primary bedroom, so I’m not surprised they made my list two years in a row.

Well, there you have it! It’s always fun to look back and see what everyone liked! Are you surprised by anything? Did you snag any of these items this year? I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday week ahead. I have a busy one wrapping up work, but am looking forward to it. We’re welcoming our house guests mid week, and then we have lots of fun holiday festivities planned. Here’s to hoping for more snow! We’re creeping closer to Christmas. This year really flew by.
