    1. 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.

    2. 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!

    3. 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!
