'Southern Living' Showcases Erin and Ben Napier's Stunning New Country Home

The Home Town duo recently renovated a weekend home in Laurel, Mississippi. The November issue of Southern Living takes readers inside.

October 11, 2022

Our beloved Home Town hosts, Erin and Ben Napier, recently renovated a stately brick Tudor house in Laurel, Mississippi. It’s meant to be a home away from home for the whole family — a place where the kids can run around outside and play, Erin tells Southern Living.

With “huge heart-pine beams, wide plank floors, tongue-and-groove paneling and custom millwork,” the home boasts a British ambiance Erin describes as “cozy.”

You can also grab a copy of the November 2022 issue of Southern Living, on newsstands Friday, October 21. It won’t be hard to spot the cover: Ben and Erin sit smiling in the dining room of their new home, surrounded by the dark wood and warm accessories that showcase the interior’s design.
