Tour this historical Kentucky farmhouse to see its century-old appeal

Thistlewood Farm is the creation of blogger and shop owner, KariAnne Wood.  This historical Kentucky home was built almost a century ago in 1918. KariAnne has done a fabulous job of integrating the original architectural details of the home with her signature Southern style. Each room in the home has been carefully curated to create a seamless flow of color and texture from floor to floor.
From the eclectic chalkboard calendar in the living room to the ingenious burlap curtains in the dining room, first-time visitors are likely to find reason to pause as they travel through the home.
