15 Wonderful Airbnb Homes That Will Inspire You to Live a Little Differently

15 Wonderful Airbnb Homes That Will Inspire You to Live a Little Differently

Vacations in a rented home always seem so restful, which isn’t strictly because it’s a vacation; a lot of it has to do with a sense of no responsibility. When you’re out of your own home, you aren’t surrounded by the constant reminders that you haven’t put the dishes away yet, or you need to dust the ceiling fans and do laundry. When you can focus more on resting and less on daily chores and responsibilities, you feel revitalized and more zen.

Change your home to change your perspective.

Just a small change can make a big difference at home. Finding inspiration through homes on AirBnb is a great place to start. Maybe you and a loved one just took an incredible trip and stayed in a tree house. Sure, it may not be possible to go home and turn your home into a tree, but you could still incorporate that airy feel. If you loved the greenery through the window, how about some house plants to bring the outdoors in? Find small things to add and feel free to make changes frequently. If it makes you feel like you’ve just transported yourself, then you’re doing it right!

When you can make those little detail changes in your home, it can boost that happiness you feel — just like when you travel. In fact, the change of scenery in general is a big part of why vacations are so rejuvenating.

Even the color tones at home can make you feel differently. For example, yellow shaded wall encourages a peaceful environment; green is a calming color that is nice to act as a transition from the outdoors; gray color boosts relaxation and serenity; and browns’ natural roots give it a relaxing touch.[1]

Now that you understand how you decorate your home, and the color of your home have a great effect on health and mood, how do you start to work on your home?

The list below is filled with homes in the States that will inspire you to live differently. Scroll through the photos on the site and notice the decorative choices the owners have made.
