A Transitional Home in California

As a design blogger I am exposed to many styles and without a doubt I am drawn to interiors with a more transitional look. Today's house tour has some Spanish influence and organic touches, described by its interior designers as 'transitional' in style.

Decorating a Holiday Rental - Part One, Living Room

This holiday rental was designed by Vanessa Wood Interiors 

The past few weeks I have been focusing on rental properties with advice on curb appeal, home staging and photography tips for advertising, (links at the end of this post). Today I want to discuss decorating and furnishing a holiday rental, focusing on the living room. I will cover colour palettes, furnishing and decorative tips and my "go to" sofa that won't cost you an arm and a leg, believe me you can still have a gorgeous looking room even on a tight budget.

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.
