Some rooms are so well appointed that the task of making them more appealing would be nearly impossible. There is but one thing on this earth that could add to the charm: a four-legged friend. Our past few issues have been very mans-best-friend-heavy (two dogs were even our July/August cover stars), so we decided to pay tribute to the animals that help make a house a home.
Our homes say so much about us—whether we’re serious or playful, over-the-top or minimalistic—and their contents speak to our interests and idiosyncrasies. The same is true for those whose livelihoods are made making homes for others. We visited the eclectic and cozy Highland Park bungalow of one of our 2022 Best Designers and found it equally inspiring and revealing.
