One of the things I love about the Internet is its ability to link people together who live thousands of miles apart. We have over 70 bloggers working for Apartment Therapy, some of them as far away as Japan and Australia, and they send in some really incredible house tours from their travels. And, of course, we post loads of great tours from the US as well. I was recently surfing through some of my old favorites and I realized that we have a ton of tours from across the globe that capture all types of summer style, from a surf shack in California to a windswept cottage in Kenya.
