Front Door: Amanda Eck from AmandaCarol at Home

by laura.johnson

From the moment I peered into Amanda Eck’s blog I was dying for her to share her jaw-dropping home of hers! Dramatic lines and soft colors, whew, my heart was a flurry with every new picture.  So my dear friends, I hope you enjoy Miss Amanda’s home as much as I do!


Welcome friends! I am so excited to be writing about our home for EverAfter Blueprint.

What makes this house your home?

This home has been an on-going evolving project over the last 8 years. I have painted, re-painted, decorated, and re-decorated every room. It truly is my canvas for my creative and sometimes crazy ideas.

What is your favorite architectural element of your home?

I love the open concept plan of our home. Our front entry is filled with lots of bright light. Walking into our home you can immediately feel the warmth from the all the sunlight-even in the dreary winter months our home feels bright and welcoming.

What is your favorite room/place in your home?

I actually have several rooms I love. First, my front living area-this is the place where I sit and blog, read magazines, and dream up creative spaces.

My other favorite room is my newly redecorated bedroom-it went from dark brown and boring-to light, bright and glamorous.

What lead you to this front door?
We were living in Pennsylvania and were needing to find a home quickly here in Texas- I actually found this home online and fell it love with it before I even saw it in person.

What projects are you dreaming about?
Oh this is a fun one!!  I have TONS of projects Im dreaming about.  One is a complete remodel of my kitchen- expanding my island to double the current size. Then opening up the screened in porch to the house and making it a breakfast area.


My other dream is to install huge french doors (where the windows currently are) in the dining room and opening up to a beautiful slate patio with fountains, planters and a fire pit.

What is your current household obsession?
WOW- um I have many!  I love anything thats Belgian Style, Im currently crushing on linen fabrics, gilded mirrors and anything from Restoration Hardware!

Thank you so much for allowing me to share my home with you and hope you stop by again soon. (because knowing me-I will have changed it up completely!!)
