I know you do it. During your evening strolls, you glance over at the neighbors’ homes whenever their curtains are open. While you may not press your face against their window, it’s fun to see how others are living. Especially everyday, “normal” people. That’s why Normal Room is a fun surf. It’s a website that reader Anssi recently told me about that takes you into the rooms of those living all over – from Finland to Russia, Ethiopia, New Zealand, Argentina, and beyond. It’s fun to see what decorative styles we share (or not) with other cultures. Even though the community is still growing, it’s worth checking out and better yet, contributing your own images. Help Normal Room grow – it’s a great concept.
While I do not suggest clicking on “browse all” because you fall into a virtual rabbit hole, I think “search” is the way to go, and then search by country. I selected Germany, Finland, Australia, the Netherlands, and Japan. Here are some of the results, see what you think.
