About Alison


I’m Alison, creator of Newport Lane, a coastal home decor, family travel + lifestyle blog dedicated to easy, affordable style! It’s so exciting that you’re here!

I’ll be sharing tours of my home, my favorite family travel tips + guides and more about my life as a wife and stay-at-home mom of two (ages 8 and 6) with you.  I love interior design, reading, scrapbooking, photography and cooking. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with traveling anywhere and everywhere possible. Home decor has only become a recent passion of mine and I’ve loved transforming our home into a casual, coastal style over the past few years. On the side, I freelance doing design work for a local interior design.
