Back in June of this year, many of you heard whispers about our own Dale Anderson making the jump to Hollywood. His rugged good looks have been known to us all for years, yet only recently discovered by talent scouts as he sat in *his* chair behind the jewelry case at Abodeon.
The truth is a bit less glamorous, however it is still super exciting for us. Earlier this year, This Old House started filming the new season and as part of their This Old House Tour, they were participating in a re-design of an 1887 Victorian-era two-family in Cambridge. which happened to be in Abodeon’s Porter Square neighborhood.
While the cast and crew were leaving the facade and a majority of the exterior largely as is, the interior was receiving a fairly intense deconstruction, resulting in a much more open and modern room footprint. This re-design is heavily inspired by the home owner’s Scandinavian heritage.
In the 3rd Episode of the series, the home owner, Sally, comes to Abodeon with Kevin O’Connor, host of This Old House, and asks Dale to pull together pieces for her home that are representative of the Scandinavian style, so that she may visually illustrate to Kevin the look she is going after. (Episode #1103)
Dale and everyone here at Abodeon had such a great time that day and we’d love for all of our readers to tune in when Dale makes his big screen debut. (TV is a big screen compared to our smartphones and iPads, so don’t downplay this honor for Dale by pointing out the obvious!)
Full episodes are available on their website here in case you forget to set the DVR.
