When checking out Airbnb rentals, what is at the top of your list? Cleanliness, style, or location? For us, we never sacrifice on cleanliness but what we love about Airbnb is finding places with unique style. The perfect rental becomes the backdrop to a memorable trip; have a funky, cool Airbnb – have a good trip!
Designing Airbnb rentals is a lot of fun. It is a chance to use bold color, vibrant prints, and to create fun, catchy interiors. We design for the client (aka the owner of the property) and the end user (aka the renter). We think what will photograph well to spark interest on Airbnb and what furnishings, what materials, what luxuries, will guests enjoy (and leave raving reviews for the owners)?
Who wouldn’t be happy to walk into this bright, well appointed kitchen? By livening up the standard kitchen with bright accessories in fun shapes and textures, we infused the space with personality while letting the the cleanliness of the kitchen shine.
In the living room, the bright palette is sure to catch attention online while the soft luxuries like throw pillows, blankets soften up the space. We added table lamps for reading and a nice comfortable club chair for relaxing.
Here is a view from the living room back into the kitchen. Doesn’t the space feel inviting? We designed the space so guests could feel right at home and enjoy the open layout of the apartment.
Art is always an important piece in our designs and here we used ______local??____art to add character to landing space right outside the bedrooms. Fun vignettes like this are sure to appeal to viewers online and to real life guests!
For the two bedrooms, we wanted to create unique color palettes so viewers could easily remember the space as a true two bedroom. When bedrooms appear too bland / similar in photos, it makes it really hard to remember when you compare rentals! This gorgeous blue bedroom with rich red accent pillows grabs your attention. We love the lux materials as they are a bit unexpected.
For the second bedroom, we went with fun prints and pops of color. We like how the colors compliment the first bedroom but are a distinct and memorable on their own.
Stay tuned to next week when we present the second unit!
