We love getting a sneak peek into people's homes. Whether they are luxurious mansions owned by celebrities and decked out by top interior designers or just really interesting pads designed by cool people with a great eye, it's still fun to look. And we've picked up so much fabulous inspiration for DIY projects, color palettes and layout ideas just by browsing. That's why we've rounded up the best house tours of 2012 all in one place for your viewing pleasure.
From the homes of our favorite crafty bloggers behind sites like Hi Sugarplum and Making It Lovely who practice what they preach in their own spaces, to places put together by some of the best designers around like Nate Berkus and Thom Filicia (well of course their houses are going to be jaw-dropping), click through the slideshow below to see the best of the best.
