2016 was a good year my friends. Especially in the home tour department. The Vault most definitely exploded with gorgeous inspiration for your abode—and although it’s impossible to pick favorites, we definitely think you’ll agree that the ten beauties below are dream status. From Nantucket charm to Cali cool, which one gives you all the heart eyes?!
Take Palos Verdes and Nantucket and smash them all together and you get this beauty. Masterminded by Rita Chan Interiors, it’s equal parts classic East Coast meets modern seaside charm with really good bones at its core. And if you’re like the majority of people who can only dream of a beautiful Nantucket retreat to call your own, get inspired to fake it till you make it with the full tour captured by Taryn Kent.
We all know those days—when the clock hits 5pm and it’s been THE longest day ever and all you need is a glass of wine. Annnd a dream bathroom like this one, too. Am I right? Well, thanks to the crazy talented designer Becki Owens, those of us that don’t have a scene like this can fully appreciate it virtually (with that glass of wine in hand, of course!).

We are always on the hunt for our next great kitchen love affair and this home designed by Megan Papworth and Dawn Terry of E.Interiors is offering up a winner. Two things: killer (and we mean killer) lighting and a navy barn door. Those lovelies mixed with an all white kitchen and colorful rugs make for showstopping goodness. Tour the full space shot by Megan Papworth in The Vault.
When it comes to renovating an entire house, it can be quite the challenge to creative a cohesive look throughout. That’s exactly why these home owners sought out the expertise of Austin Bean Design Studio, who took their expressed love for blue and designed a fluid home. From one room to the next, they nailed it. Revamping your own home? Grab their tips below for a smooth reno and catch more of the tour in The Vault with Alyssa Rosenheck!
Bachelorette Pad Under 5K
I think most of us can relate to moving into a new space with nothing but boxes of clothes and a mattress on the floor. But with the help of Shannon Smith of Homepolish this city apartment was quickly whipped into Bachelorette Pad Dreaminess and all for 5K. It’s a study in glam neutrals and art-filled vignettes. See the full tour captured by Laura Metzler right here.
There IS a hefty dose of white in this abode, but there’s also a splash of daring dark as well. I’m looking at you, gray cabinetry and gorgeous green office! Designed by Studio McGee it’s home that boasts contrast with subtlety and gives off a light and airy vibe in the process. See the full tour captured by Lindsay Salazar Photography in The Vault!
Effortless + Organized
If the pantry is any indication, there is not a junk drawer or jam packed closet to be found in Clea Shearer of The Home Edit’s gorgeous abode. Instead it’s all classic black and white details and modern accessories mixed with really amazing art photography. Find motivation to clear the clutter with even more of this chic and insanely organized home in the VAULT.
An Entertainer’s Dream
I’ve seen plenty of basements finished with a small bar in the corner but this, my friends, is new level home bar goodness. Like the kind smack dab in the middle of it all that we would belly up to and never leave. It’s also the kind masterminded by Blackband Design that totally kicked off the entire look of this home. Inspired by that gorgeous spanish tile and looking to craft a space that marries LA cool and laid back So Cal vibes, this surf-side home was born. See the full tour snapped by Tessa Neustadt right here.
I’m pretty sure, no, make that 100% positive that this is my dream home. I fully stalked it on Blackband Design‘s Instagram account, as I do with all of their work. I looove that this abode has Cape Cod style on California time—a perfect blending of east and west coast beach vibes if you ask me. Graystone Custom Builders created a gorgeous blank canvas and Blackband Design layered on the love. See the full tour captured by Tessa Neustadt in The Vault!
Pretty in Pastels
I usually start making plans to move in to each and every Studio McGee gem that we feature. Their latest and greatest is absolutely no exception. With the softest pastel color palette and a signature touch of gold, the formal living room is just the beginning. Tour the home that starts with a gilded bang, and proceeds to get better and better. Plus, see even more captured by Lindsay Salazar in the VAULT.
