The Brothers Scott


Ever watched the two tall drinks of water known as The Property Brothers? Twins Drew and Jonathan Scott transform horrific fixer uppers into lucky people's dream homes. There are certainly worse background accompaniments to a morning of editing a manuscript about reclaiming one's dreams. This morning I worked along with Drew and Jonathan, looking up only occasionally until the moment of the big reveal, at which point I put down my pen so I could properly salivate over the open concept interiors they had put together. Always open concept, the HGTV buzz words, along with stainless steel backsplashes and granite counter-top kitchen islands and double vanity bathrooms and rain head showers and flowing hard wood floors. And then I come back to reality, to my own open concept living area and kitchen with scuffed maple floors, which is hardly what people are talking about when they describe their fantasy space to the Property Brothers. The show takes place only in Canada, of course. Everything would be way too expensive to undertake here. But a girl can dream.

  2. I've never heard of Drew and Jonathan, but I think these sorts of shows are frequently called "aspirational," because most viewers are doing exactly what you're doing -- dreaming!

  3. I watch that all the time and didn't realize that they were Canadian. The renovations really are something to drool over. Drew and Johnathon are pretty good eye candy too.

  4. Haha, all those buzz words could describe our house except our hard wood floors need some attention. Perhaps I can convince Drew and Jonathan to come south and get her done.

    1. Gary, you should show us pictures of your space on your blog! Stainless steel backsplash? Sweet!

  5. God, what I'm fantasizing about is a hut over the blue waters of the lagoon in Bora Bora. I don't care if it's just me in there, naked, with nothing but a bed. That's what I want.

  6. Canada? really? Reading your blog with my morning coffee and finding out that my two fantasy twins are in Canada just gives me two more reasons to move there!

    1. Drita, welcome! Thanks for commenting here. I think those Scott brothers might be a lot of people's fantasy twins!
