5 Stunning Homes We Want To Move Into Tomorrow

You can check a million tourist attractions off your list when traveling, and still wind up leaving with little understanding of the everyday aesthetic and life in that place. But, there's something about entering a local's home that gives a true sense of a city's essence.
Unless you already have friends in a foreign city (or make instant pals at the local pub), it can be difficult to get that glimpse. But, Swedish writer Ida Magntorn's new interior book, Home Style by City, solves that dilemma. The eye-candy coffee table book features five design-focused metropolises — Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles, and Copenhagen — and funky spaces that reflect the sensibilities of life there. On each page she delves into the heritage, habits, and priorities of each place — such as the French bedroom, London flea markets, and the New York loft concept. It has visual inspiration galore. Ahead, five of our favorite real, "lived-in" rooms that make us want to start packing immediately.
