This whitewashed stunner on the coast of Mallorca was purchased and expanded by Archduke Ludvig Salvator of Habsburg in the late 1800s. The 247 acre property boasts stunning sea views, and will accommodate 19 of your closest friends (if you can bring yourself to share this paradise with anyone). I'll...
This month's Real Estate Crush is hand picked for your annual Halloween bash! Whether you're leaning towards Guillermo tel Toro vibes or straight up evil nuns (or maybe this, I won't judge), this historic Italian convent is a bargain at just shy of 20 million. The convent was originally built in...
I first came across Jersey Ice Cream Co through their inspiring Instagram posts, but it's not difficult to find their work in the interior design blogosphere. Couple Tara Mangini and Percy Bright travel across the US and the world to renovate homes, frequently moving into the house while they're...
Despite some interior design choices ranging from questionable to bizarre, the above photo was all I needed to crush on this historic riverside chalet in Hampton Court, England. The chalet was imported from Switzerland in 1882, and-- substantial as it may appear to the eyes of the less solvent-- served...
Digging this small town English townhouse, dating back to the 1400s. The beautiful exposed timber framing and low ceilings give the home a cozy hobbit house feel, AND there's a pretty courtyard garden.
This airy Finnish cottage looks like a sweet autumn escape! It's set on a lake just outside of Helsinki and retains the wonderful 1906 timber frame of the cabin that preceded it.
My Real Estate Crush features seem to be a bit skewed to Paris lately, but how could I resist this fabulous red velvet covered Paris apartment? The delightful 2 bedroom apartment will set you back almost 3 million, and I certainly wouldn't think worse of you if you chose not...
How dreamy is this glass roofed Paris loft up for sale! It has all the trappings you'd expect of a luxury home, but I can't get past all the natural light and garden space. And the indoor swimming pool. Also loving how the price isn't stated, but instead tastefully...
 I'll admit it: I'm dying to stay at the "real" Hogwarts castle (but can we talk about some rules regarding LARPing? those people scare me). Sadly, the Hogwarts of the Harry Potter movies is just a compilation of various castles, historic buildings and sets-- and likely due to licensing...
If the pale blue exterior of this Notting Hill, London home wasn't enough to make me fall in love, the stunning airy, modern interiors really sealed the deal! Well, metaphorically. Best not to even look at the price.
