House Tours are one of the classic Apartment Therapy posts; we publish at least one every day, all year long. They provide a unique look inside homes from the decor of famous names in the design world to the first home of the studio dweller next door - we want to see, learn from and appreciate it all. Here's the countdown of the top 10 tours of 2011, which is just a small sample of all the wonderful tours to discover in our archives. Start here, dig in deeper for more...and then get ready for 2012 - so many terrific tours are on their way!
