You’re good (and so is Christmas).

I thought this was going to be a tough one (see yesterday’s pop quiz post) but I guess not! You guessed right (well except for the person who suggested Twister). You’re too good. I was going to post this photo as a hint.

Exterior of Home Alone House

Followed by this dead giveaway of a tag line: Keep the change you filthy animal.

It’s the Home Alone house. You see, I watched Home Alone with David’s niece over Christmas. And by watched, I mean that I begged her not to change the channel and forced her to hang out with me.  She was very disappointed that this wasn’t Home Alone Sixteen: Lost in Translation or whatever movie came out over last few years. This is the original, Lily! The best one.  The coolest part for me though (now that I am a grown-up interior designer) was while I was watching the credits. Yes, I watched the credits to bitter end. The absolute last line was a shout out to F.Schumcher for providing the interior decor. Schumacher? I had no idea! Schumacher is one of my favorite fabric houses. They’ve still go it! During the movie I had noticed just how “designed” the house was. The wallaper in the foyer and the paint in the upper hallway, especially, stood out to me this time. I wanted to see if I could learn more about the interior decor and furnishings provided by Schumacher for the Home Alone house so I went on a googling rampage. I didn’t find anything relevant except the most recent shots of the Home Alone house, which was recently for sale (you’re right Megan), on a realtor’s website.

I’m sorry to say that I am not re-designing this house (although I appreciate the thought, Meredith). It’s probably for the best though because I would just put it back in it’s glorious traditional red and green state from 1990 (see photos of the Home Alone house from the movie here). And I’d insist on keeping the Christmas decorations up all year round.

And while we are on the subject of Christmas…

This weekend we are celebrating Christmas with my family since we were out west with David’s family for the actual holiday. So, I’m feeling very festive. I thought these photos of Sarah Richardson’s farmhouse were a great way to continue the holiday spirit. You may recognize this house from her show on HGTV, Sarah’s House. It’s a GREAT show if you don’t already watch it. How cute is it decorated for Christmas?? I’ll take one of those snow covered tress for my yard too, please.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and continue to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. It’s okay if it lasts just one more weekend.
