Checking your incoming links and finding you’ve been added to someone’s blogroll has to be one of the nicest ways to discover a new blog. And it’s even nicer when you get some love from a blog as inspiring as Taking Notes. I popped straight over and had a good poke around Katrin’s amazing house….

I find it really interesting that two individual house tours can end up with exactly the same tags (vintage, Norwegian, wooden house, reclaimed…) yet the overall style of the homes can be so very different.
