Every year, Domino features hundreds of homes, from teeny tiny apartments to sprawling beachside mansions. We love each and every one, but of course, some are more loved by you than others. Here, we present our 10 most viewed home tours of 2017.

First up: A super cute, 1920s storybook home in the Oakland Hills, owed and renovated by creative guru Kate Davison. Exposed wood-beam ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, and an exposed brick fireplace create a warm and charming home that Davison personalized with comfy furnishings and at least one Ikea hack. Every room has something to envy—click through to see the whole space.

It’s hard to say what we love the most about this Studio McGee-renovated home: the deep green kitchen cabinets paired with clean, white subway tiles and a Moroccan tile floor, or the moody bedroom and brass-fixtured master bathroom. Take a look for yourself here.

Spotted in the London flat of retail visionary Alex Eagle: two vintage clam chairs designed by Philip Arctander for Ikea, which were fetching a whopping $65,000 at auction this year. The rest of the space—with candy cane-esque wallpaper in the nursery,

open shelving

in the kitchen, and cutie papier-mâché animal heads in the nursery—is pretty great, too.


Hello, apartment of our Instagram dreams. This 650-square-foot rental was transformed into a boho, plant-filled oasis by photographer Chelsae Sahlman and her artist husband. Don’t miss the rest of the small space, where greenery is tucked into every sunny corner.

Self-taught designer Emily Netz gave her 100-year-old Sears Roebuck Kit house an unbelievable transformation, bringing the historic Tulsa, Oklahoma, property into the 21st century. Seriously, just take a look at the before images.

This picturesque Seattle home wasn’t always so adorable—that is, until designer Heidi Callier had her way. Click through to see the whitewashed interior that features built-in shelving, gorgeous hardwood floors, and a fantastic hexagon patterned tile in the powder room. See the full home here.

Stylist LaTonya Yvette turned a one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment into a two-bedroom home, and it’s nothing short of a design miracle. See how her family of four shares the space here.

Designer Caroline Kilmartin worked with architect Joyce Flood to build her dream home from the ground up after she purchased a tear-down property in Manhattan Beach. It took nearly two years, but the result is everything she hoped for. Tour the whole home here.

Leanne Ford

loves white. “White is the silence between the chords, the pause in the poem,” she explains. “It can be taken in any direction.” The designer used her own farmhouse to showcase the best of the most muted hue, and while every room is a treat, the master bathroom is far and away our favorite. But you can decide for yourself.

Hands down, the sofa in this home is the best sofa we’ve seen all year (ever?). It’s owned by Christian Rudder, co-founder of OKCupid, and Reshma Patel, founder of Quiet Storms, and it was designed by Amanda Jesse and Whitney Parris-Lamb of Jesse Parris-Lamb. The sofa in question is a classic design by Mah Jong, upholstered in muted reds. See the full Brooklyn townhouse here (there’s some great tiling in the kitchen).
