Whimsical Spaces & Playful Rooms

The Best of 2010

Much as I love the tasteful, elegant, and restrained, my heart lies with spaces that are quirky, whimsical, and sometimes even downright weird. These 15 homes we toured in 2010 express their inhabitant's personalities — and then some. They might not be everyone's style, but from the sweet to the strange, they are all anything but boring.
