Chances are, any traveler who falls in love with a new destination inevitably asks themselves if they could picture actually living in said locale. But when you pair a living-abroad fantasy with #RealEstatePorn, the result is a full-on love affair with a new place — stunning abode included, of course.

In the brand-new title, Modern Living — Homes Away From Home by Claire Bingham, global architecture takes center stage. Featuring glamorous houses from eastern South Africa to Venice, Italy — as seen below in this exclusive excerpt — some of these holiday homes are over-the-top opulent while others are jaw-dropping rustic chic. Be it an image of an island villa, beach house or a chalet, escapism is the recurring theme here. And what better way to transport readers than through travel and living space?

In this just-released title, you’ll get a look at some of the world’s more exquisite escapes — Bingham, an interiors journalist, also offers tips for incorporating these looks into your own home. Here’s a peek at some of the beautiful international dwellings featured inside.
