Laurel's Home Tour...(Via Made By Girl)

Laurel McBurney has a super cute blog (I love visiting) called Abode Love: A man's home is his wife's castle. She also sent pics of her home back when I was requesting people to send them, & I thought it was pretty cute! I'm really happy she decided to share so much of her home on MadeByGirl ! In looking through her place I noticed LOTS of stripes... it's a pretty BOLD move don't you think?

It's actually inspiring me to want to paint some stripes in my DOG'S room! What about you? Do you like painted stripes in a home? Perhaps your own?? 

Anyhow, thank you Laurel for sharing all these pics with us! Let Lauren know what you think & feel free to jump on over to her blog here.

love how you are doing posts on home tours!
LOVE the stripes esp the hallways. I wish my home was all stylish like that.
The only room I love at my house is my daughter's nursery.

I love stripes so I really loved this home tour, but what I really liked was the black walls in the kitchen. Dramatic and unexpected - has me thinking that maybe I need some black to go with my white kitchen...

Sara Marie said...

I kinda love that her Twilight books are in with her china..

andrea said...

Wow! This home is amazing! I wouldn't usually love this many stripes...but she did it beautifully and it totally works! I love your blog...all these home tours are totally inspiring!

Megan said...

Oh I love it! I especially love the man cave and all the football references:) Such a neat way to make a man cave that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb from the rest of the house!

I'm going to be sad when your home tours end!

Cristina @FUJI FILES said...

This house has all of those finishing touches that I have yet to add to mine! Makes me jealous ;) I'm also pretty sure it would make my man super happy to have a huge football photo in the sitting room, and it looks really good there so everybody wins!

OMG I loved Laurel's pics. Honestly looking at all these wonderful decorating ideas just makes me want to re-decorate my entire home and give it a fresh new look but I can't. Anyhoot I thought she did a great job with the stripes. Could I do it, hmmm not sure but I loved what she did with it. Thanks for sharing Jen and I will def check out her blog. Hope you can stop by mine as well at www.DebraFoxx.com/dailydose.

I love wide strips in a home...but I don't think I'd be able to put them in my own home!.

I love the arrangement of prints around the tv in the media room - I'm totally inspired to try that now!

Ooh, love it! I like how it can mix things like football paintings and fresh flowers and look awesome. Are those metallic painted stripes on the walls?

jane-garnet said...

I love the stripes! What is the darker stripe color? It looks like it might be bronze, because it has a metallic sheen, but I am not sure.
