Bloggers From Omaha – Jennifer Tyler

Kim’s note: This is the 16th installment in a series introducing different voices from around Omaha. Each week Whenever I can, I’ll introduce a different Omaha blogger, what his or her blog is all about, and since I love getting recommendations as much as I love giving them, I’ve asked each person to share some Omaha tips. This week’s blogger, Jennifer, is going to have you wanting to remodel your entire house! Hope you enjoy getting to know all the bloggers from Omaha!

They inspire us to take action and make changes in our lives. My “before” photos were pretty bad. I still can’t believe it’s the same house!

What social media channel are you on the most and why?

Pinterest is my biggest traffic source, but I probably spend the most time on Instagram.  It’s an instant peek at what my blogger friends are up to, and its more interactive.  Bloggers love hashtag challenges!


You get one hour to spend on writing, where in Omaha do you go?

All of my photos are saved on my Mac Air Port/Time Capsule, so I’m always working from home.


If friends visit from out of town, what three places would you take them to?

My favorite places are the Old Market, Dundee and Benson.  I’m a fan of low key bars with patios (where I can hang out and laugh with my friends), good beer and great food.


What’s your favorite free thing to do in Omaha?

My favorite free thing to do in Omaha is watching fireworks.  This city loves its fireworks, and I couldn’t be happier about that!  I joke that Omaha is a breeding ground for pyrotechnics.

The Striped House is all about creating a home you love coming home to, but on a budget that won’t break the bank.  I am remodeling, updating and decorating my house one gallon of paint at a time.  I’m always game for a DIY project and you can find me at the hardware store on any given day.  I believe that if you don’t love a room, it’s not finished.  And if you can’t afford something, DIY your own!

  1. Such a pretty house! She should come tackle my house. Ha! I only say that because I have painting stuff all over the table where we eat. Travis has wax, scraps and metal all over downstairs. Isaak loves to collect things. He was so happy when I came home with a handful of washers off the ground.

    I do like neat, clean things. The modern look is wonderful!
