Photographing a Holiday Rental

My blog is very much about beautiful images and the beach homes featured, often have me dreaming of summer holidays by the sea. Why then, do many holiday rentals use boring and uninviting photos, it's no wonder when you check their availability they have few bookings. It doesn't take much to have a holiday home look utterly irresistible when it is beautifully decorated and photographed correctly.

Last week I posted tips to attract the right tenants to your rental property, focusing on it's exterior and curb appeal.

Curb Appeal - First Impressions

They say, "first impressions count", and this couldn't be closer to the truth when it comes to the curb appeal of a home, I don't just mean the home you pour your heart and soul into, it is just as important for a rental or house you want to sell, to have a great first impression.

A couple of years ago I posted a tutorial on a simple DIY upholstered headboard with step by step instructions. I used a neutral linen fabric which in hindsight was a little boring, so today I wanted to share some inspirational ideas with patterned fabrics.

Hamptons Style in Queensland


Today I want to share a gorgeous home, a bit closer to home, well only 3 hours flight away in Queensland, Australia. Hamptons is a classic, timeless design that is easy to live with and pretty much timeless. It is the perfect style for a grand 'Queenslander' or new build Hamptons style architecture.
