My Review (5 stars):

From the Publisher:
From its earliest days Metropolitan Home magazine grew into the standard bearer for contemporary home design in the US and became an active participant in reshaping the way Americans live, always on the forefront of new trends, yet never elevating fashion over substantive style.

A favorite annual issue known as the Design 100 honored superlative invention and creativity in international design. Metropolitan Home Design 100 focuses on the best homes and the best rooms ever to have appeared in Met Home —as well as scores of new locations and never-before-published photographs. Each of the 100 houses, apartments, lofts, rooms, or design details included in the book is the greatest of something, and each has been created by one of the top designers or architects of our time. The 100 taken as a whole have been curated in the spirit of Met Home: lively, beautiful, accessible, aspirational, real.

Metropolitan Home: Design 100 is a celebration, a valediction, and a gift to anyone who loves modern design.

I love books that give inspiration to you when you're reading them! I generally use them as "guidelines" for my own efforts! The pictures you have included are striking!
