You probably could’ve guessed that when I travel, I’ll take a vacation home over a hotel any day. Who’s with me? Besides the actual travel location, it’s so fun to see new spaces, houses, and architecture. As a former vacation rental home owner myself (goodness, I miss that beach house!), I like rental spaces that feel both welcoming and personalized. When we owned our beach rental, it was my mission to find authentic decor to make all of our guests feel at home. Currently, I’ve got my eye on converting a laundry area into a guest room. As I gather up some styling ideas, I’ve teamed up with Etsy and AirBnB to share my curated finds for house guest essentials!

Etsy is one of my favorite sources for unique home decor – it’s my go to sites for art prints, hand towels, and personalized glasses. As a former owner of a successful vacation beach cottage, I’ve also shared my tips for Decorating a Vacation Rental Home.
