Tour of Our Home

Entertaining & lifestyle blogger Julie Blanner's home tour In the Fall of 2011, we purchased an East Coast Colonial home in a suburb of Kansas City. Since then, we have had two more beautiful girls, shared numerous DIY projects and done a lot of renovations. It’s a work in progress, but I love to call it home. Follow the links for more details and DIY instructions and details for each space & join me as I take you on our home tour.

  • Thanks so much for sharing! Your home is beautiful and I love your style. My husband and I bought a home in KC last year, so I love getting a sneak peak in other KC homes. :)

    I am so in love with the pale purple/taupe curtains in your living room. Do you mind telling me where you got them from?

    Your home is vey elegant and beautiful. I do feel it lacks color. Don’t be afraid to experiment with a few additional pops of your favorite shades. All around great job:)

      Thanks Kim! I used to use a lot of color, however I just insert little pops here and there with decorative accents and flowers seasonally. I’m in a neutral phase and love it!
