A fantastic gift given to me by an almost-as-fantastic man, The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes is a rather weighty number; which means its not great for your commute on a busy tube line, but ideal for cuddling up to in bed on a rainy evening. It’s all about the cosy factor.
If you want future-dream-home inspo, this book is your new best friend. Almost like a slightly more grown-up version of Frankie’s Spaces, this guide is filled with essays, photography and opinions on what it takes to make a house a home. The team behind this book has travelled far and wide to capture and share some of the world’s most incredible and character-filled homes: from Japan to South Africa to Brazil and beyond. It’s a dedication to architecture worth ogling.
