The Look Book: Design and Living’s Best Of 2016

Design and Living 2016 Best Of

If the new year has you searching for a heavy dose of design inspiration, look no further. Over the last year, we had the honor of touring some of the area’s most beautifully designed homes, many of which deserved a second glance. As part of our New Year’s resolution, we took careful note of every spectacular space with a goal to compile them into one big Design & Living Look Book, and take you into 2017 in style. Go ahead and cut out your favorites, mark it up and maybe even steal a few clever ideas. We dare you.
