It's no secret that here at Dwell, we love promoting the power of good design through inspiring home tours. Not only can well-considered design and architecture enhance one’s quality of life, but it can also create a healthier connection between people and the natural environment. While we’ve covered countless residences this past year, there’s no question the 10 below made an extra-special impression on our readers. From a sleek, DIY residence (that features nine shipping containers) to a Scandinavian–style beach retreat and midcentury renovation, these projects cover all the bases when it comes to brilliant design. Scroll ahead to take a peek inside.
