Hoffman Fabrics proudly announces the launch of its partnership with popular DIY blogger and home décor expert KariAnne Wood of Thistlewood Farms. KariAnne and Hoffman will be releasing her new line, Simply Eclectic, at next month’s Fall 2015 International Quilt Market in Houston. KariAnne writes the award-winning decorating and lifestyle blog, Thistlewood Farms. Her home décor blog was awarded Country Living Decorating Blog of the Year as well as named one of the Top 10 Decorating Blogs by Better Homes and Gardens.
The Simply Eclectic fabric collaboration with Hoffman grew from KariAnne’s love of sophisticated, high-quality and affordable home décor fabrics for her vintage farmhouse. Hoffman California Fabrics was the perfect fit. The florals, stripes, geometrics and swirls found in her collection coordinate seamlessly to create classic, vintage-inspired design. Whether bold or neutral, cranberry or cool gray, the colors in Simply Eclectic reflect the vivid hues and softly patterned tones of the farmhouse landscape and surrounding countryside. Her farmhouse flair makes Simply Eclectic simply irresistible. KariAnne’s professional aesthetic combined with Hoffman’s 91 years of quality, innovation and sophistication created this inviting, contemporary line.
KariAnne surrounds herself with joyful and carefree design. She loves to paint mismatched chairs and set them on the back porch of her turn-of-the-century farmhouse set in the rolling hills of Kentucky. She enjoys the music from the crickets singing in the pasture, and loves walking hand-in-hand with her knight-in-shining-armor husband as the sun sets over the river. She sips sweet tea with lime while watching a thunderstorm. And, she has never met a decorating challenge that she didn’t like!
