The Duncan home

Our past few days in a nut-shell: 4th of July weekend we went to cookouts at our families' homes and watched fireworks from our back patio. On Monday Billy's back left tire had a blow-out. He was shaken up, but everything worked out fine. Billy's sister Tiffany was in a bad wreck. We thanked God that no one was hurt! She was majorly shaken up, much more than Billy with his flat tire! Other than those events, we've been working and hanging out at the house with Laney!

Speaking of the house, I finally took some updated pictures AND I uploaded them on my computer. I know. The stars have aligned and you bloggers now get a tour of my home. It's not even Kelly's show us where you live Friday! Lucky you! :)

Welcome to our home!
This is the view from the front door. Straight ahead is the kitchen.
Our kitchen is red and I am just in love! The island was made by Billy's uncle. We are borrowing it from Billy's mom, Vicky. It looks perfect in there. The sign above the stove says: Cherish life's simple pleasures. The small one right above the stove says: I kiss better than I cook ;)
This is the view from standing near the island in the previous picture. We found the painting at Kirkland's just a few months ago. I had been searching for something to go on this wall, and finally found something I was happy with! The room down the stairs is the family room where we spend most of our time.
BIG couch and BIG TV. Worth every penny! The chest behind the couch was a wedding gift from my father. We store blankets in there. Trust me, if you visit you'll need one! ha
Here is my lovely piano in the nook beside the stairs in the family room. Come over and I'll play you a tune while you lounge under a blankie!

Here is the bathroom off the family room. Billy, myself and Billy's mom installed the vanity ourselves!
This is our workout room that is decorated UK and TN. My side is the UK and Billy is the TN. Notice the valance made by the one and only Vicky Duncan :) Rachel, I know you love at least half of this room!

This is the view of the top of the stairs. The door to the right is our master bedroom. I won't post pics of that since I did on a previous post. To the left are the other two bedrooms.
Here is Laney lounging in the guest bedroom.
This is the bathroom at the top of the stairs. It's the same color as the one downstairs, which I would like to change! Billy isn't so fond of the idea... we'll see.
Last but not least is our beautiful dining room. It's so pretty I'm afraid to eat in there! The floor was recently installed by Billy's uncle. We got the table and chairs at Ashley Furniture and the curtains from Pier 1. I love everything about this room!

Well folks, that's all for now. I took pictures outside of my flowers, but I'll save that for another post! This one is getting a little lengthy. I hope you all enjoyed your virtual tour of the Duncan home. Head on over and I'll give you a real tour. Maybe I'll even fix some margaritas!


  1. Hey, I want a margarita. You are so right about needing a blanket but don't you be offering that fuzzy red one. That is reserved for VIP guests only. :)

  2. Your house is so cute!! You are right, I do love one side of that room :) We are currently on the look out for dinning room stuff. Yours looks really nice! I prob would be scared eat in their too. Maybe if you are lucky you will get to keep the island in the kitchen! It's very nice! I'm looking forward to the flower pictures!

  3. Love all of the pictures. You all have done a great decorating job! And there is that Eiffel Tower that you realized we both have :)

  4. Lewis and I both think the house is so cute and cuddly! Makes me want to come over and crawl on the couch with a blankie. Not Lacey's fuzzy red one, though! :) Oh, and as for Rachel's comment...I love the other side of the room! Keep blogging...I love it!
