Karman Ng of Berkeley, CA, is the winner in the Met Home of the Year Contest, selected by Metropolitan Home from its favorite readers’ homes and spaces of 2008. The prize is a $5,000 shopping spree at Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. Ng, who owns a design firm, designed a home for himself, his wife, and his 4-year-old daughter that successfully merges warm, inviting colors, a modern design, and a common-sense approach to family living.

Ng's award-winning home features a multilevel floor plan with small rooms that feature built-ins, dramatic lighting, and smart storage solutions. The designer noted that he wanted a home that could “host cocktail parties as easily as it could host slumber parties, and also one that felt warm enough for my family but ‘cool’ enough for our guests.”
