Best of 2013: Photographs Month by Month

Talented photographers share their skills with Apartment Therapy in house tours and blog posts all year long, but some shots just stand out and stick with us. A great photograph is one that captures a subject's spirit perfectly, that pulls you in to the visual experience and that inspires. These a few of our favorites from Apartment Therapy photographers in 2013, chosen by Maxwell, our founder.

Welcome to Apartment Therapy's Best of 2013 roundup! From December 21 through January 1 we are rounding up our favorite (and your favorite) posts from the past year.
