I am seeing more photos done with very light like settings but it's done INSIDE a house and on some photos there's an effect of a window but I know in fact there's a wall there. It's like as if light is coming through the walls..... I don't know hard to explain. Here are some examples of what I am talking about.

These images are obviously done outside but I wonder how one would get so much light inside the car, the outside looks blown. Is there a technique to blow outside to get the inside light?

On this link. All these images done inside the house look as if the house was filled with natural light (even the foyer). Again, anyone know any trick to this?

FYI if you didnt take these, you should link rather than post, forum rules. As for the shots, if the light isnt directional and it appears its somewhat diffused here, then you just simply expose for the interior of the car and let the outside blow-out. I'm not sure which exact photos within the blog you are referring to. It appears they are in a building with tons of window light so you can do a similar thing.

The shots in the car are simply shot using the ambient light coming in through all the windows, cars are quite light inside with all that glass, but obviously not as bright as outside. That is why the outside is so overexposed, the photographer exposed for the light inside the car. The only " technique to blow outside to get the inside light " is to get your exposure right for the subject. Take the camera off auto as it will read the outside light and factor that into the exposure, so will underexpose the interior. Take a light reading from inside and set that manually.

As for the interior shots, there are so many it is hard to know which you refer to. Some are clearly using regular room lighting as they have an orange tint from the tungsten lighting. Others look to have been shot with ambient natural light, from a window, or may have used diffused flash off camera, or bounced off a wall (likely the light source you are seeing where you believe there is a wall and not a window). Again, there are no special "tricks" being used here, just basic understanding of light and either using ambient or, when ambient light is poor, adding some supplementary light from a reflector or indirect diffused flash.

Reading a book such as Peterson's "Understanding Exposure" would help you to learn how to expose correctly, and add light effectively where needed.

When you post an image you are making a copy (from the original site) and posting it here. Copying peoples photos without permission is copyright infringement, which is why the forum rules prohibit it.
