As a hobby, I love visiting model homes to gain inspiration of the decor-kind. I'm sure realtors do not appreciate it, but to me, it's like visiting a playground. Rather than being physically entertained, my eyes are taking delight in every nook and cranny of design wonderment.
When I discovered Hooked on Houses, I realized how much I have in common with Julia and her site.
She features a broad range of homes from celebrities, movies and TV shows as well as homes we may find intriguing as a decorating enthusiast.
Set design is another aspect of interior decor that many of us take interest in. How many folks ooh'd and aah'd over Diane Keaton's home in Something's Gotta Give.
For nostalgia, how about today's post on Mary Richards' apartment on the Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Julia also encourages camaraderie among us design enthusiasts with her Hooked on Fridays posts where you can link your own favorite blog post to her site.
Sketching floor plans on graph paper is how I entertained myself as a kid. And the fascination has remained with me ever since. There is something about the bones of a house and it's contents. And I'm glad I found Hooked on Houses to feed that curiosity for all things design-related when it comes to homes.
