We’ve showcased dozens and dozens of real-life homes on the Front + Main blog this year, from teeny tiny apartments to sprawling homes and everything in between. Some are a not exactly real-life (hello, Queer Eye loft set!) but you can still find inspiration in every corner. Many of these stunning spaces were designed by the West Elm Design Crew, our free design and installation services available across the country.

It’d be impossible to pick favorites, so we turned to Instagram to see which home tours YOU loved most this year (follow us @westelm!). Here are the top 10 – click each photo to see full tour and let us know your favorite in the comments below!
