How was your week everyone? More importantly, what have you been clicking on around the web. Here are a few posts that caught our eyes around the web this week.

1. To die for home in San Francisco:

2. Great holiday decorating ideas from Real Simple: This article shows us some ways to keep things simple, easy to assemble and beautiful during the holidays, though here at Design Public, most of us still love paper turkeys too!

3. VisuaLingual goes to the Biltmore Estate: Wowza! $59 for a tour during the time when everything was upended for Christmas at the Biltmore preparations, and the price only goes up from there? Whatever, seeing this place and its Frederick Law Olmsted-designed grounds is still on my bucket list

4. Oversized Load! The New York Times takes a look at  how houses get moved. Preserving a home and moving it is so much better than tearing it down; while you can pick up such houses for a song, moving them is another story!

5. I can’t believe I had to discover this blog via Oprah magazine: Slaughterhouse 90210. The blog matches literary quotes with the likes of Snooki, Brenda Walsh and George Bluth and it is absolutely hilarious. Not so much a design site, my mind reels with ideas about how to turn these into mixed media creations for my walls.
