Since I’ve been on the road, I have discovered HGTV. One show that I really love is Home Town set in Laurel Mississippi. I love the before and after aspect of the show, and I can live vicariously in a regular sized house. It was a short detour from Pensacola FL and New Orleans LA so I took a look.
The show follows Ben and Erin Napier who share a love of simple, Southern living and revitalizing historic properties in their hometown of Laurel. Erin’s keen sense of style and a background in graphic design guide the renovations, Ben’s building and woodworking skills preserve and celebrate the home’s history, and by using found materials and old textiles, they keep the character intact but create modern and affordable updates.
