Hooked on Houses | blog to love

Hooked on Houses was the very first blog I followed and it’s still one of my favorites.  I reached out to the founder of Hooked on Houses, Julia, before I started CECY j.  She was very kind and welcoming to the virtual community and full of great advice.

There is just something cozy and unassuming about Hooked on Houses.  Julia seems to effortlessly present her posts about celebrity homes, really cool dream houses and even some quirky & hilarious houses.  The site makes me feel like I’m curled up in her living room and just chatting with her about all these amazing “house lover” finds.

I threw some questions at Julia the other day because this gal not only loves houses, but she is also humble, fun and totally worth getting to know better.
