Airbnb + Paris

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One of my favourite things to do is look at interior design online. Another one is to look at hotel websites and visualise myself staying there (sounds a little kooky but its a little technique I picked up from Creative Visualisation, also helps to motivate me and limit procrastination).

My fav fake hotel trips have included the Tokyo Park Hyatt and the Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris. Imagine my delight when I stumbled across airbnb.com. It's basically a site where people rent out their apartments (the entire house or rooms) to complete strangers... I spent a good two hours looking at all the Parisian apartments and settled on this one... my crazy dream is to be able to rent this pretty thing out for a fortnight, eat Laduree + tea (my name is french so I can get away with being so stereotypical ha!) everyday for breakfast on the balcony while working on Wikifashion. A girl can dream right? (also love the painting on the wall, it looks like a hipster version of my boyfriend, which he scoffed at!)

My trip will then include these gorgeous abodes in Barcelona, London and Berlin.... comment below with your favourites. The site is like crack to me at the moment and I need to stop looking at it. So I'd appreciate your finds!

  3. haha your midgetness.. i am 5'5" and i can JUST get away with maxi skirts/dresses! oh well. btw, i love interior design too :D great picture xx


  4. ohhh I think that airbnb website will be a new addiction of mine too now! But thanks for sharing this because I think it will come in quite handy for organising accommodation when I (hopefully) head to Paris next year :)

  5. i love your blog and how you put images together!

  6. Thanks for your lovely comment! My necklace is from Diva :)

    Ooo I wish I had discovered this site before we travelled Europe! I used a site called 'homelidays' and rented a gorgeous yet tiny apartment in Paris with the boy for a week. We ate way too many pastries from the bakery across the street (including macarons - though I had no idea what they were then) and did the typical tourist thing! It was so much fun to have our own Parisian apartment to come home to! Though they are normally much smaller than they look in the pictures (we had to fold down our kitchen/dining room table to be able to wash the dishes and our couch transformed into the bed haha).

  7. I also like to look for interior designs online when Im free.. Great photo

  12. thanks you a lot for fixing my blog! are you one of the founder of wikifashion? are you working in PR?

  13. Oh no... Now I have yet ANOTHER reason to stay up late, loitering on my computer! I sense a new obsession coming on... What a fabulous little place too. I love it. I love Paris.

    On another note: there needs to be a website like this, but for shoes and purses - if there weren't the chance that someone would never return them, of course lol

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, by the way! I love your's <3

    xoxo coco
