Real Homes for International Inspiration

Sometimes it's fun to visit the websites of shelter magazines in foreign lands, you never know what you may find that's different, or maybe even someone or thing mirroring your own lifestyle! Not to mention, I'm still looking for a viable Domino replacement.

Some of my personal favorites are Ideal Home (UK), Living Etc (UK), Home Beautiful (Australia), and Marie Claire Maison (France).

I'm LOVING these real homes in Ireland, call it a tribute to St. Patrick's Day! I found these beautiful house tours via House and Home in Ireland.

The home of award winning Irish fashion designer
Aideen Bodkin and her Banker sister Sharon Bodkin.

The home of Michelle and Eamonn Cunniffe

The home of Stuart O'Mahony and Amanda Gibbons

Happy Globetrotting!

Each home is beautiful, but my fave is definitely the converted monastery. I'm generally drawn to a more transitional and sometimes modern asthetic so I wouldn't decorate this way ordinarily, but if I had a home like this I would... absolutely!!

yes, i'm leaning towards the monastery as well, but, i'd play down the formalnessa bit, it does however have great bones! love it !
