Does Disney or do fairy tales, in general, occupy a sweet, comfortable zone in your heart? Do you fancy those charming fairy tale houses featured as the narrator begins his or her 'once upon a time… ' line? Well, homify might just bring your wishful thoughts into reality with these equally dreamy houses. Check out which one tickles your fancy and might potentially be your actual residence later on.

1. Florals and wood

Straight out of the woods, here's a polished lumber or wooden home decorated with cheery flowers.

2. Wrought iron wonders

Wrought iron in black with fancy curlicues is a go-to detail which you can use for your railings and gates. The ceramic flooring on the photo above is also a lovely complement.

3. Stone walls

Channel Hansel and Gretel's bread house with eye-popping colors against stone walls like this house's exterior elements.

4. Stone houses

If you want to go a bit further with stone and happen to be living in a colder area, an all-stone exterior is your best option. The one here plays up on the material by using texture, shape and color to enhance the look.

5. Asian charm

From Western-conceived tales, let's fly back to our Asian community where oriental houses are just as dreamy as the Western ones with its neat lines and elaborate details.

6. Classic

Here's one that conveys Little Red's Grandma's home in the forest sans the bad wolf. It's simple, charming and classy at the same time in terms of design, color palette, and general vibe!

7. Roof bait

It doesn't have to be an entire house that you should design to mimic fairy tales. You can focus on one aspect like the roof here which interestingly catches our attention with its red shades and ceramic tiles plus higher pitch.

8. Medieval

Thinking about those live-action fairy tales with medieval settings? Capture the era and drama with a straw roof and stone or brick surfaces. They updated and styled this house through the window designs.

9. Cottage warmth

10. Modern fairy tales

Take fairy tales to the now by combining their magical atmosphere with modern architecture just like the stunning window and door details on this one.
