Maybe looking at pictures of “real” houses would make you feel better about your own, but I think the whole point is to become inspired so you can actually implement little ideas here and there in your own house so you can enjoy being home even more.

Ha ha.” Loved that.

It may not seem like it, but I actually try hard to feature a range of houses. Some big, some small. Some heavily designed, some more homespun. Here are a few of the less-formally-designed tours. They might be just what you have in mind:

There’s the home-spun house in the hills.

The house with the green table.

Under construction.

Handmade.

Happily ever after.

My apologies a dozen years after the brattiness never seem sincere. : )

But I think too many parents compromise their living space because they think that’s what good parents do. And then the next thing they know, they’ve got a life-size hot pink Barbie tent in their living room for two years. I think it’s good to teach kids about keeping the living room a certain way; that their toys or games can come downstairs, but they have to go back up at the end of the day. Julie Blackmon [...]

Although I agree with maybe seeing houses that aren’t picture perfect and look lived in, I also love seeing that it is possible to have a put together house with littles running around. It gives me hope.

I was confused too until I read an article about her and it mentioned she had 3 children and gave their ages. The daughters were both college aged.

Beautiful house, and Julie must be a beautiful person, too!

This is so crazy – but my living room is laid out EXACTLY the same way as Julies – the fireplace at the far end, the windows, the radiators, the entryways to other rooms – it’s uncanny. I have been struggling with how to decorate this room for sooooo long – the fireplace at the ar end and the radiators under the windows present quite a challenge. Thank you, Julie for showing me the way with your beautiful layout! I am wondering, what are the dimensions of your room?

I laughed out loud when I read, “they better pick up their crap because I’ll either go psycho on them or I’ll silently throw it away…” SO funny. I want to be her friend!
I love these house tours you do, Gabrielle! Thank you!
