31 Days: Hooked on Houses

Are you Hooked on Houses? I know that I am!

I've been a big fan of Julia's blog, Hooked on Houses, for a few years now. I think it started when I became obsessed with the Stuart Little house. And then the Daddy Day Care house. And of course, the Gilmore Girls house, and then...well, you get the idea. Julia shares my obsession for movie set houses and real houses, too.

My bathroom remodel is being featured on Julia's blog today! Check it out here:

Hooked on Houses

There are some amazing bathroom remodels featured today! I'm humbled that my little bathroom facelift is featured along with some of these fantastic projects!

Do you have a favorite Hollywood house?  When my Mom and sisters came to visit last month, my sister Jenny told me that we have The Father of The Bride house! (See what I mean? We're kind of obsessed with movie houses in my family. It must be genetic!) I'm certain that Steve Martin and Diane Keaton's characters had a much grander house than mine, but I appreciate the comparison none the less.

Grab a coffee and go visit the blog right now. You will be glad you did!


  1. I actually came to your blog from Hooked on Houses! I simply adore your bathroom remodel. So many people see the original tile and fixtures and immediately want to rip them out (a la House Hunters - everyone demands granite and stainless these days). But like you, I adore the old tile and fixtures! They add charm that you simply can't get with new stuff!


  2. Congratulations, MR! Your bathroom turned out great and now it is going 'viral'....better call your realtor and let them know!!!! ;)

  3. Another Hooked on Houses reader. I love, love, love your bathroom remodel. I also have an old colonial (1969) that I adore so I really appreciate your thoughtful updates.

  4. Cool on the feature but I have to say that I was the one that said your house reminded me of Father of the Bride! xo
