With the arrival of a new calendar year, we can’t help but to reflect on the past twelve months. In 2018, Design & Living Magazine amassed quite the collection of stunning photos for your home inspiration.

That being said, this is the perfect time to look back at all of the exquisite places we’ve been. While doing so, we noted our own personal favorite elements of each space, which leads us to imagine, “What would it be like if someone designed a home using a mood board based on content from Design & Living Magazine?”

In case you were wondering, that is exactly what we have done here. As an exercise in indulgence, we’ve gathered photos taken in 2018 from our archives and used them to create a mood board for what we can only describe as a Design & Living Magazine dream home.

Now, this house doesn’t really exist, but these meticulously curated mood boards will provide you with home inspiration for years and years to come. Also within these pages, local experts predict which design trends will be big over in 2019. What would you want to see in the magazine this year? Tell us at DesignAndLivingMagazine.com/Contact-Us.

Living Room

Have a seat. The would-be living room of our 2018 Design & Living Magazine dream home was inspired by the most stylish spaces we’ve visited this year. Each of these spaces was designed to be ideal for their homeowners, but we’ve taken elements from each room that we think represent the year as a whole. That includes clean-lined furnishings, carefully curated local art and materials such as faux fur and leather.
