Michelle Yee December 29, 2022

As we explored what’s big in kitchens, the latest in bathrooms, and how homeowners are rethinking paint colors, outdoor areas and wellness elements for 2023, one theme remained clear: Spaces that evoke happiness never go out of style. Here, we round up some of the year’s most popular homes and the stories behind their carefully crafted interiors, exteriors and design philosophies.

Inside A French Revival Abode With Major ‘Wow’ Factor

 
Truly earning that stop-you-in-your-tracks endorsement, this French Revival residence is sparkling with bespoke furnishings and elegant chinoiserie motifs.

Old World Details Lead The Way In This Timeless Colorado Remodel

 
An understated façade and the continuation of that smeared-mortar look captures the easygoing Napa Valley aesthetic these homeowners were looking for. Residential designer John Mattingly of Chalet plays it up even more with earthy textures and an eclectic mix of accouterments to give this Colorado dwelling its own bit of old-world magic.
 

Behind Its Old-World Façade, A Modern Palm Beach Home Emerges

 
A clean, modern take on the island’s aesthetic awaits in this light-filled Palm Beach residence. Interior designer Kelly Anthony and general contractor Jason Willoughby refresh each room and retain the home’s historic Mediterranean-style exterior.
 

Calm And Coastal: Inside A New Jersey Beach House Built For Family

Farewell, Dated Tuscan: An Old-World Style Home Gets A Modern Spin

 
Heavy and old-fashioned is freshened up with a timeless palette. Interior designer Holly Wright transforms a dated Tuscan home in Arizona into an airy modern retreat with character.
 

Behind A Midcentury Home’s Makeover From Traditional To Modern Glam

 
Untouched since 1957, this beautiful Los Angeles villa is a true time capsule. But thanks to the efforts of architect David Thompson and home builder Eric Dobkin, a recent remodel incorporates a contemporary lightness that stays true to the home’s midcentury style.
 

A Colorado Home Goes From ‘Faux Tuscan’ To Fashion-Forward

 
Designers Kristen Thomas and Heather Hill of Studio Thomas let their client’s sartorial style lead the way in this fashion-forward remodel. Mixing soft organic hues with clean lines, the result is a comfortable Colorado home for a very chic family.
 

The French Countryside Inspires The Revamp Of This Tailored Alabama Abode

 
Designer Dana Wolter teams up with architect Chris Tippett and residential designer Paul Langford to refresh this Alabama abode inspired by the grandeur of French country style. Layering textures with a rich palette of hunter green, burnt orange and chocolate brown, these embellishments help bring this beautiful home to life.
 

Behind The Unexpected Modernist Interiors Of This Southampton Home

 
Designer Timothy Godbold looks to the region’s past, and to far-flung destinations, in taking a cookie-cutter Southampton home up a notch. While it has the classic Hamptons beach house façade, the interior represents a design odyssey that draws inspiration from modernist icons like Le Corbusier and Constantino Nivola.
 

Midcentury Meets Cottagecore In This Cheery Hamptons House

 
Designer Augusta Hoffman turns a newlywed couple’s traditional Bridgehampton farmhouse into an all-season retreat with Scandinavian midcentury and English touches. Imbuing the residence with a youthful, edgy flair, maximalist jewel tones dramatically transform the space into an imaginative haven that these transcontinental sweethearts will treasure forever.
