From the team at Monocle, a look at some of the coziest and most creative homes around the world.
Good homes are places where lives unfold, families grow up, dogs jump on sofas, and friends share meals. They’re also spaces to find some solitude―a quiet corner to read a book or have a Saturday afternoon nap. Homes need to do it all―they sustain you, inspire you, and tell your story through architecture, design, and collections.
Monocle has always celebrated everything that makes a space a home when covering residences―whether featuring a city hideaway, a modernist seaside residence, or a summer outpost in a forest. The Monocle team brings this all together in one volume that explores individual homes, housing projects old and new, communities of self-builders, even whole neighborhoods where a simple philosophy of building well has created quality of life for many.
The Monocle Book of the Home is packed with great photography that delivers the bigger picture and the smallest details alongside fascinating essays full of advice by key thinkers, writers, and designers. As we spend more time at home than ever, this is a book that could change how you live.
