Vanessa found herself traveling for work a lot and staying in hotels more than her own home, so she decided to start listing her home on AirBnB in the spring. As an AirBnb host, she wants to provide a comfortable space for her guests as well as rent out her home as often as possible. That means creating a stylish space with unique elements.
“I truly believe a nicely styled AirBnB is the number one differentiator. Especially in today's climate, where we know people are looking for experiences outside of the ‘basic.’ AirBnB does a great job as a platform to keep pricing competitive for guests; so when price is no longer apart of the equation to separate you, style and aesthetic becomes the differentiator,” said Vanessa.
For this Huntervention, we wanted to keep what she has in the space while elevating the style. The ceiling fans helped complete the style of each room as well serve as a way for guests to keep cool in the hot Palm Beach weather.
“I think the fans will be such a cool and unique way to separate me from other houses. The Hunter Pendleton fan is so unique that I know guests will immediately be intrigued or inspired by the design!” said Vanessa.
Southwestern living room
Hunter x Pendleton Spider Rock modern Southwestern ceiling fan
Speaking of the Pendleton fan… Vanessa’s Airbnb living room already had a Southwestern style, so we wanted to embrace that by adding the Spider Rock modern Southwestern ceiling fan from our Pendleton x Hunter Collection. It’s the perfect statement piece that ties the other Southwestern accents in the room together. Inspired by the Pendleton ceiling fan, we chose a few other items from Pendleton Woolen Mills to style the room with like wall décor and pillows.
Coastal glam master bedroom
Loki transitional ceiling fan in Polished Nickel
The Loki ceiling fan is a versatile design that looks casual yet polished in one of Vanessa’s Airbnb bedrooms. We used the light, rustic wood blade finish with the Polished Nickel fan to give the bedroom a comfortable, approachable look. We added some textiles with blue hues, a tall plant, and a natural woven rug to complete the coastal look of this bedroom. The breeze from the fan keeps guests cool while also embracing the coastal vibe of the room and Palm Beach.
Modern guest bedroom
Norden modern ceiling fan in Satin Copper with Blush Pink blades
The Nordern modern ceiling fan in Blush Pink and Satin Copper is statement piece certain to impress guests! It features featherwood blades that the blush pink finish highlights, giving the soft modern design an approachable feel. The finishes on this stylish ceiling fan are a subtle pop of color in the room. We added other touches of blush pink to the space to tie it all together while keeping the rest of the room simple. The Norden comes with a remote, so it’s easy for Airbnb guests to control the fan speed and dimmable light.
Smart home kitchen
Advocate SIMPLEconnect smart home ceiling fan in Fresh White
The Airbnb’s kitchen has a simple, cozy style. The clean lines and finish on the Advocate SIMPLEconnect® Wi-Fi® ceiling fan make it the perfect addition! It brings a breeze to an area of the house that tends to be warm and extra light to help set the ambiance. While preparing food or entertaining friends in Vanessa’s Airbnb, guests can use voice commands with Amazon Alexa to control the Advocate smart home ceiling fan. We added modern barstools and a few décor accents to give the kitchen an inviting feel. The ultra-low-profile design allows for plenty of head room without sacrificing space.
Adding character and accent pieces makes your AirBnB listing stand out. Along with refreshing the decor and adding a stylish ceiling fan, here are a few other things to consider when styling your AirBnB:
- Use cord covers to conceal TV wires and other cords along the walls
- Use bright, clean bedding and accent it with a decorative duvet and shams
- White, fluffy towels emphasize a clean bathroom
- Hang mirrors to make spaces feel bigger and brighter
- Leave the hallways clear for baggage guests will bring
