Hey, how has your week been so far? I had a really tough one. My little girl got the flu on Monday and we’re still trying to recover. I used plural because I’m also feeling under. Things can get quite overwhelming at times with all the workload and sleepless nights. Honestly, at times like these I really wonder how do single parents manage to cope! I totally admire them. Anyway, Friday is finally here, and yes I’ve rounded up a new collection of links from around the web: three house tours and one fun post about interior design (that might come as a surprise at first).

A detailed close up of a dandelion with dewdrops.

Via. I chose this wonderful image of a dandelion because it is an amazing shot of something so delicate yet it’s got so much beauty. The color palette is just fantastic!

The first tour is of a modern Los Angeles home. This easy going home belongs to Pamela Shamshiris. It has an interesting V shaped floor plan, and some pretty cool features like clerestory windows that make the ceiling appear even higher (I just love them btw), lots and lots of woodwork and a steel-looking finish facade of a fireplace.

The second home tour is of a San Juan island home where traditional meets Pacific Northwest. It’s very nicely decorated, with an earthly, neutral palette, yet it feels rich and serene. I loved the bunk beds!

The third home tour is one sea side adobe by Norm Architects. This is really zen! One of the best Scandi interiors I’ve ever seen. It has a feature fireplace with a dark textured brick facade, but because everything is so well designed and kept simple and earthly, nothing feels out of place. Super cool! I forgot to mention that it is not another all white interior! Yesssss!

Last but not least, read this post about the most asked interior design question. I totally agree with her on all her points. 😉

Enjoy your weekend, xo
