Former Town & Country magazine editor Sarah Medford collected 30 of the top homes showcased in the magazine over the past 10 years, with breathtaking color photographs and fascinating celebrity stories. Many of those home owners featured, in fact, aren’t household names, although their families might claim some local and industry fame. As expected, New York City reigns as top urban area represented, with London and various California coastal areas not far behind. Four sections—On the Town, In the Country, Artful Living, Glorious Getaways—order the compilation. Inserted between the sections are four design forums: opinion editorials on how to plan living spaces, for instance, or kitchens for cooks, all highlighting the perspectives of well-known designers. An accessible, friendly narrative takes us into the homes of Maine-dwelling painter Alex Katz, the Moroccan hideaway favored by Liz and Martin Landau, L.A. arts patron Frances Brody, movie director Spike Lee’s East Side townhome, and actress Mariska Hargitay’s nest in Manhattan, among many others. One guarantee is that at least a few pages will prove drool-worthy for most readers. --Barbara Jacobs
