For my first blog post (woo-hoo!), I’m sharing some personal photos from earlier this week in London. My birthday was this past Monday and my boyfriend and I decided to rent a lovely old Victorian flat in South London through Airbnb (that’s him, my favorite unwitting model). A day spent soaking up the charm and artistry of a vintage home was the perfect birthday treat (…along with some chocolate cheesecake and wine, of course).
As a professional interior photographer, it came as no surprise to me that the home was even lovelier than in the listing’s photos on Airbnb. It had actually taken some convincing to get my boyfriend to agree to rent this flat because he was wary of the images on the site, which left him questioning if the home was old and charming or just plain old. I’m so glad I convinced him otherwise, because we were met with hygge x10 in this old beauty.
Moral of this post? If you’re an Airbnb host, do yourself a favor and invest in some professional images of your property. Not every guest will be as willing as I was to take a leap of faith, and beautiful photos will sell your home better than any review or written description ever could!
