Did you catch episode 8 of HGTV’s Home Town? Well, it was one of our favorite episodes ever.
Josh and Giorgio totally captured our hearts this episode, as well as Hemingway and Seamus, their dogs! In case you didn’t get enough of them or their home, you’ve come to the right place.
Keep reading for a fun Q & A with the homeowners!
What was your favorite part of doing Home Town?
“Our favorite part of doing Hometown was honestly the crew of hometown. They were so nice, caring, and even funny! We can’t think of a better group of people who LOVE what they do, and it really shows in their work.”
Do you think Erin nailed your style?
“100%. Going into this, We were both unsure how it would look, because while Giorgio and myself have similar style, we are both different enough that combining them could look like a disaster. Erin also nailed the zebra pillows, she had no idea that I [Josh] love zebras.”
What’s your favorite piece of furniture in your home?
“Our favorite furniture piece is the Desk. We know it has deep roots in this community and your family’s and we couldn’t be happier to extend that legacy.”
The desk and chair were my grandfather’s, Willie Joe Rowell, the owner of Smith Furniture Co. This other furniture store was located where Laurel Mercantile Co. is today!
I don’t have anything else of my grandfather’s besides photos, so his desk is really special to me. I can’t think of a better place to have it used again.
What would you recommend to prospective Laurel homeowners?
“Small homes have charm too. Many people say they were surprised we didn’t pick the Bond House, while it was a great home, the space was just too large for us. We know that even this house will be a project to keep up when we’re not here. Good thing the community here in laurel is always eager to help!”
Favorite place to take your dogs while you’re in town?
“We live to take our dogs to Mason Park! They even have a dog park.”
