5 Real Homes That Remind Us of Fairy Tales
Let these spaces take you to a whole new world
Growing up, we’ve watched a couple of movies or even read a book or two based on well-loved fairy tales. There are different reasons why these stories appealed to us—it can be the valuable lessons, the triumph of good over evil or even the thrill of a magic carpet ride. Whatever it is, one thing’s for sure, these tales allowed us to escape to faraway lands and dream about lovely places.
Since the setting of these stories often feature whimsical details and a blending of colors, one would think that they can serve as perfect home pegs! We reviewed our archive to look for spaces that seem to take inspiration from these childhood favorites and we found five that you might also love. Check them out below and enjoy reliving fond memories:
Known as the Castle of Clams, this enchanting home feels like a part of Ariel's world in The Little Mermaid.
