Ivy-Covered Houses

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Ivy-covered houses remind me of my mom's cozy townhouse in England. They look somehow mysteriously dashing with that magical undertone, don’t they? If Balazs and I would ever consider getting a bigger place, I’d love to have a bit of ivy-magic growing around the front wall. They seem so alive! Are you a fan of ivy-houses or not so much? xo

P.S: Remember this green wall in Paris?
P.P.S: How about this flat?

I do love them.
It just screams a family of style lives here.
But it always scares me of what is lurking underneath that ivy...spiders?
eeek.
But it is GORGEOUS!

How awesome, Anacristina! Your school must look so beautiful.

Amy, I bet that you can try keeping it pretty clean but yes, there might be an occasional spider walking about:)

Hello darling, I hope you have been well. :-)
Lovely pictures, I do love those as well. I would certainly have my home like that if I could, although is a shame that they don't look as beautiful in the winter.

Ahhh I adore greenery growing on buildings. It makes me so happy every time I find some. I agree though, the reality of what might be creeping amongst them or the upkeep or damage is pushed out of my daydreams!

I love this kind of natural "architecture" on the exterior of houses. It adds a charm that it's absolutely captivating!
