 Southern Living Inspired Home in Mt Laurel

An Inspired Home.

Experience Birmingham’s first Southern Living Inspired Home in the Town of Mt Laurel. Mt Laurel is proud to showcase our latest collaboration with the magazine in the new Southern Living Inspired Home.

“Mt Laurel is known for its community lifestyle, embrace of the natural landscape, and beautiful southern architecture,” said Kathryn Lott, Assistant Marketing Manager, Time Inc. “Southern Living is proud to partner with Mt Laurel on Birmingham’s first Southern Living Inspired Home opening in the neighborhood this fall. The Southern Living Inspired Home exemplifies our pride of place and allows the pages of the magazine to come to life. Mt Laurel is a truly refined example of the iconic Southern Living lifestyle.”

After successful tours of the 2016 Southern Living Idea House, Mt Laurel opened the Southern Living Inspired Home, a celebration of contemporary craftsman interior design and architecture. Featuring the new Southern Living floorplan, the Magnolia, this home is sure to delight with its large wraparound porch, grand two-story foyer, and extraordinary design elements.
