This is my inspiration photo from many years ago, when I knew then that
I MUST have ivy on a home someday...I'm still waiting, but soon. :)
In the meantime, I have gathered lots of great photos along those lines.
Here are a few of my favorites:

I took this picture while vacationing in the south of France last year. I was driving by and had to go back and study the house's design as well as snap a picture.
Luckily the dog didn't notice me or the owners might have wondered what I was up to!
The Grand French Manor version...
The English Country Estate version...
I think this entry would look a bit harsh without the greenery - but with the green,
it blends feminine and masculine beautifully...
A lovely family home, made even loveliver by the trailing vines.
I love how the creeping vines (maybe wisteria?) on this house provides a
green canopy for the lower level windows.

The fireplace, the ivy, the lantern....ahhhh.
Does trailing ivy evoke that type of emotion for you, too?
