Am I the only person that gets really distracted by the houses in movies or TV shows?
Monte and I have been known to pause a movie or show
and rewind it to check out the layout of a kitchen
or the height of the ceilings.
The charm and beauty and story of them.
I am being assured as I watch my friend Carisa build her house that I could NEVER do it.
She not only has to pick light fixtures for EVERY room in her entire house
all at once
but she also has to decide EXACTLY where they should go.
That overwhelms me even as I type it.
after I get my hands on it.
I have LOADS of ideas for my house,
just waiting on that money tree to bear fruit.
when a whiny couple rejects
based on silly little changeable things like no stainless steel appliances or the paint color in the foyer.
When McDaniel was little she LOVED to watch Disney's Bear in the Big Blue House.
Blame it on a lack of sleep or extreme loneliness having moved from Atlanta to Ohio where we knew no one
but I LOVED the house in Bear in the Big Blue House.
|Check out those windows in the living room.|
|Look at the arched doors to the balcony!|
|Built-ins and lots of natural light.|
I have to admit, it makes me laugh too.
(There are some pretty painfully unfunny shows on Disney.)
And I like their house too.
|Isn't this barn door awesome in their basement to hide their washer and dryer?|
|Love the wood top island and chalkboard fridge.|
|I think the painted staircase is cool (although I'd never have to nerve to do it). |
Love the stone fireplace and open floor plan.
|Great windows and front porch.|
I have always loved the Waltons' house.
|Love the porch and the squeaky front screen door. I even like that little lean-to on the side of the house.|
|Who wouldn't want space to have a big table for this?|
|Look at that sink!|
|Room for everyone.|
|Look at the woodwork and ceiling height.|
|It is beautiful abandoned and run-down.|
|It is hard not to tear up when George kisses the broken banister on that amazing stairway.|
It is set in Brooklyn:
|Oh, the architecture!|
|Awesome formal dining room. One of my favorite scenes from the movie.|
|Love the light and space of this kitchen.|
|Love the shelf above the stove and that big huge window.|
The Modern Family house of Claire and Phil Dunphy:
|This house isn't old but I love the open kitchen to family room space.|
|I like that open hallway too with exposed stairway.|
Am I the only one who remembers the house as one of the characters on a TV show or movie?
Don't leave me hanging.
