Making Your Home Ready for Short-Term Rental

Now that I have three properties that I am renting on a short-term basis, I find myself offering up a lot of advice and tips to people who are looking to start their own instant hotel. 

I thought it would be a great idea to answer some of those frequently asked questions by writing a blog dedicated to my tips and tricks when it comes to attracting short-term renters while protecting your property.

3 Reasons to Keep Your Old Windows

Getting rid of old windows might seem like an obvious step when renovating an old home but there are actually several good reasons to keep old windows and integrate them into your design plans. Before you begin the huge project of replacing old windows, here are a few reasons why you might want to consider keeping them.


Welcome to my Spring Home Tour

Spring is in the air. The days are longer and I am finding myself motivated to clean and freshen up our home. It’s been a while since I have photographed the main floor living space of my home, and I need to update my Air BNB listing. So I am sharing some of the changes I’ve made around the house in the last few months.


I some of you who follow me on instagram might know. I finally got the dinning room set of my dreams last November. The Taos Harvest Table and Benches from homefurniture.com has really changed the look of my dinning room.


I was also gifted a new rug for this room from Loloi Rugs. It is very soft and plush and I love the look of it with the modern table.


When I was getting my house ready for The Homes for the Holidays show (this was when 1500 people came through my house to see my Christmas decor to raise money for the YWCA) I moved some of my furniture down to the basement. I decided to move the small leather sofa that was in the dinning room and replace it will this simple console I found for $50. It makes the room feel less cramped and gives me extra space for my plants!


I took a few of the flowers from my Christmas mantle display and the beaded garland from my tree and made a little arrangement for my coffee table with them. Because the theme for my Christmas decor was wood, fire and roses (I decorated with gold and blush pink) so I’m able to make some of my decor work in other ways throughout the year.

There are a few other bloggers who are also sharing their home’s this spring. If you are looking for more inspiration check out:
