Modern Family: Let’s Play House

April 29, 2010 at 8:16 AM 15 comments

I love the show Modern Family. If you haven’t seen it, you are seriously missing out. I wouldn’t blog about it if I didn’t mean it. That half hour makes me laugh till my tummy hurts. You agree?

Not only is it hilarious, the homes are such fun to look at. I figured we could play house today. If you could pick a house from Modern Family to live in, which one would you pick? Would it be Cam and Mitchell’s Spanish style casa, Phil and Claire’s traditional digs, or Jay and Gloria’s modern abode?

I would hands down pick Cam and Mitchell’s Spanish style home. It’s perfect. Exactly what I’ve always dreamt of. I grew up in an adobe spanish style home myself and I love that home; guess I have always wanted a place just like it. Mom, feel free to hand over the keys. 🙂

    I like the first and the second ones the most. Probably the second a little more than the first. The third one is way too modern – not pun intended. Great show though – I love it.

      I agree on the modern one. Maybe you can live in Phil’s traditional home and I’ll live in Cam’s Spanish style and we can be next door neighbors. Then we get both homes.

    So I get my own bedroom? Sweet.

    For now, I will keep my Spanish home which is even prettier than the first one. I will remember your request when “handing the keys over”.
    Love, Mom

      It is even prettier! Okay, so I’ll settle with moving in to the cottage…does that mean free babysitting and free rent? Expect us to move in in a few years.

    Sorry Graham, you’re going to share with Jason and I…we’ve always dreamed of having a traditional California Craftsman and of course I’m living next to Kate! Imagine the playdates, wine with lunch, pre-school applications… 🙂

      I can’t wait! It’s going to be so much fun. You, Graham, Jason, your kids and one of our kids in your gorgeous home and then myself and the other child in the spanish home. Oh the playdates, wine lunches…we have a bright future.

    cam and mitchell are not only my favorite couple but i love spanish style! how about the beach house from last week- with the revolving driveway…that was crazy!

    Phil and Claire all the way! I am mildly obsessed with this show. Can’t it air every night? I heart Cam.

    Hugs from SF!

      Agreed! I get a little sad when we’re like 28 minutes into the show because that means I have to wait an entire week for more Modern Family time. Cam is the best.

    i love cam and mitchell’s house although jay’s does have doggie butler… mitchell is my favorite. great show and i also like cougar town after it. terrible title, hilarious show. even joe watches them with me, which is saying a lot!

    • 13. katecollinsinteriors  |  April 29, 2010 at 4:14 PM

      Ha ha. That doggie butler episode was hilarious. I haven’t gotten that into Cougar Town; I think I’ll have to give it another go round. Graham also love Modern Family. Miss you!

    DJ and I watch that show every week and we LOVE IT! Totally cracks us up. And love all of the homes for different reasons in each…

    I like the first and the third houses. Seattle has so many beautiful craftsman homes I feel like that the second one does not do the style justice! It looks to much like something between craftsman and sprawling development. I love the spanish style, and have a secret place in my heart for modern/contemporary.
