For $20 million, you can buy your own endless Summer — and Matt Damon's Miami pad. Almost too good to be true, this waterfront home boasts over 12,000 square feet, not including the pool and guest house.

Just the fact that the Damon-Affleck duo probably spent their Summers here is enough of a reason to take a peek inside this Miami mansion.
It's no surprise that designer Sheridan French's Texas home is infused with the same layered prints, exuberant colors, and exotic influences that her collections are synonymous with. After spending years as a student and model in Europe, Sheridan landed a job at Prada's London Press Office but continued to create her own collections on the side. It wasn't until Sheridan returned to her hometown of Fort Worth, TX, to raise a family that her lifelong dream of developing her own label, Sheridan French, came to fruition.
As a line previously dedicated to fashion – think shift dresses, tunics, and shorts with a luxury resort twist – Sheridan French now carries equally exquisite home goods. We asked the Southern style maven to let us peek into her vibrantly decorated home to get a sense of how she melds fashion and interior design, both professionally and personally.

Tour some of our favorite rooms, and steal the style of interior designer Stuart Gilchrist with a few key pieces for your home!

The opening of Safe Haven has us reminiscing about all the beautiful beach homes and plantation properties in Nicholas Sparks's past film adaptations. The one closest to our hearts? The breathtaking house that Noah (Ryan Gosling) builds for Allie (Rachel McAdams) in The Notebook, of course.
Inspired by the film's romantic setting, we browsed properties in Charleston, SC, and came across this similarly gorgeous home. The Bennett-Hayne House dates back to 1800 and features two tiered porches with Tuscan columns, a carriage house, and lovely expansive gardens. The only thing missing is a lake and Ryan Gosling rowing a canoe.
