perhaps it's the scandinavian influence that has me smitten with its design and layout.
from kathryn tyler, resident of the beautiful house pictured below: "the houses we visited in scandinavia had such a welcoming feel, often because they used lots of wood and had really well-considered layouts. they looked lived in rather than pristine and they weren't soulless like so much contemporary, modern architecture can be."
