10 Favorite (and Inspiring!) Home Tours

10 inspiring online home tours from

Obsessively stalking, falling in love with, and pinning photos from gorgeous homes is a bit of pastime for me. (Or a ridiculously time-consuming hobby. Call it what you will!) Interior design is definitely my first love. As a kid I used to draw out floor plans on construction paper with crayons and beg my father to rearrange my bedroom for me on a near weekly basis. So I guess it’s no surprise that 25 years and one architecture degree later, taking a peek into the beautiful homes that dot the internet days just makes me happy. I love finding inspiration in the cozy spaces others create and call home. Today I am sharing 10 of my favorite home tours. Ready to be inspired? There’s no end of beautiful ideas showcased in these lovely homes!
