Lara Jane April 8, 2010 at 12:06 am

I watch way too many movies and spend too much time on this site! I got them all!

Annie@A View on Design April 8, 2010 at 12:59 am

I couldn’t get them all, that was tough. But I would know that last one from a mile away!! I love that movie, especially for the dream Hampton’s home. I think the home was pretty much as important a ‘character’ in the story as Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton!! :)

Wow! I did horrible. I could only recognize 4 of them. I have to agree with Nancy, that last fireplace will always be easy to spot, it’s one house I will never forget.

Even though I only recognized 3, this was still fun nonetheless. I need to watch more movies! ; )

Christine April 8, 2010 at 7:55 am

Oh, that was so much fun!! Although I only was able to nail a few.

Michelle @ Sweet Something April 8, 2010 at 7:58 am

Got all but two! These are some of my very favorite movie houses! Someday I will live in a house like the first one, oh someday. Or at the very least vacation in one.

Richella at Imparting Grace April 8, 2010 at 9:23 am

Julia, you’re amazing. If Nester does a party recap, she will surely link to this post. What a fun quiz!

And for the record, I did a horrible job recognizing these mantels! Thank you for your hints; without them, I think I would have recognized only one! Maybe I need to get off the computer and watch a movie. :)

Hi Julia, wow leave it to you to come up with the most amazing post on mantels. Wow….amazing…and very stimulating! Alas our farmhouse has a wood stove and no mantel…boohoo.
But Oh the ideas for tablescaping and decorating shelves are endless! Love it.
Have a wonderful beautiful day.

I hardly got any of them. You can tell I can’t get my hubby to watch movies — at the theater or at home! Great post though. I love seeing all the fireplaces.

the first one will always be the best one…but the one with 12 big trees was the first one i ever saw (of those movies of course)…

LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE April 8, 2010 at 3:41 pm

I loved that house when I saw the movie. Speaking of image #1!! So cozy and quaint. Like a warm hug. I got some of these. Of course, Williard came to mind for #2. ha.

Lets just say..I could have done beter! I was more interested in the mantles then the moves that featured them. I have been tweaking my mantel for ….oh…about 25 years now!

Feeling smart! Knew them all!

jodi from new jersey April 9, 2010 at 7:40 pm

That was fun! I am proud to say that I knew 6 out of 8 fireplaces.I can’t choose a fave, but the cottage in The Holiday makes my heart ache. I love that movie. Cameron Diaz is so adorable. I did notice that she packed a lot of coats for someone who lives in LA. Plus, I think she only had one suitcase. Hmmmmmmm. I guess that’s what makes the movies so enjoyable. Thanks Julia

Hamtonitegal June 8, 2010 at 7:16 pm
