Sessions Drive, Bexley, Ohio

If you're thinking the image above looks like a fairy tale house, you're right- it does.  So much so that I'm going to break protocol and show you the actual house:

Yep, still a fairy tale.  This is a 1954 charmer from Bexley, Ohio.  Let's hurry and get inside before the magic fades.

This pretty and polished space will give us cues for the rest of the house.

The living room opens onto the dining room:

I took further inspiration from Loi and wanted to find rooms with beautiful fixtures that you might find in his shop.

This lovely vaulted bedroom is definitely fit for a princess:

Let's just make it more magical:

This bedroom already features a lantern pendant plucked from a story illustration...

...that I think would illuminate this dream of a dollhouse in true fairy-tale fashion:

Finally, I can think of only one thing this perfectly landscaped back yard needs to make it fairy tale perfect:

A guest cottage like this for me to stay in!

All in all, this house is definitely one to inspire sweet dreams.
