Wonderful time. Beautifully written. Small, warm, and digestible pieces.

This is a great guide for helping you creating a home that is a joy to live in. The main highlight of the book is the numerous glossy photographs of homes around the world in different settings (cities, suburbs, mountains, beaches, etc.) Like all the Monocle guides it's beautifully designed, is very inspirational and makes for an excellent coffee table book. ...more

Very nice collection of articles out of the Monocle magazines. Gives you ideas... but as most of the featured homes are basically huge and filled with stuff like Wegner chairs, it will be hard to replicate it. Or just the feel of it: not everyone spends upwards of 3k euros on a chair alone!

Ahh so good, makes me want to immediately move out of rented accommodation, hire an architect and surround myself with mid-century furniture. In a way heartbreaking!

The only part of this worth spending time on are the larger scale photographs at the end of the book about light coming from windows. The rest of it could quite be called The Monocle Guide to Rich People Attempting Authentic Spaces

Beautifully designed and written, as all Monocle publications are. This has a great set of essays detailing every facet of home life, but I find the shopping guides section (a significant portion of the latter half of the book), is of limited value for those that don’t travel to a different European or Japanese city every weekend. Still, a fun coffee table read for the aspirational.

What a beautiful collection of real homes, some of professionals (architects, designers), and also regular folk. This gave me a greater appreciation for interior design, famous chairs, international styles, and a thirst for more. This deserves dedicated coffee table real estate.

I waited pretty long to buy this book, since it was quiet pricey. The content was super worth it, they're photographed and written so beautifully, some even almost made me cry. ...more

The Monocle Brand is foremost known for its monthly magazine that focuses on design, lifestyle, politics and culture and has enjoyed the attention of its rather affluent and cosmopolitan readership for 1,5 decades. During this period of time the brand has expanded into adjoining media and products such as its own radio broadcasting channel(s), add. periodicals and of course design conscious books, such as this one, to further spread the good word of lasting design.
