Tip of the week – creating a gallery wall

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times (and we’ll say it once more): when it comes to decorating your Airbnb, personality pays off. While it’s second nature for most hosts to try to emulate the design of their favourite five-star hotel, it’s a look that Hostmaker-designed homes try to avoid. Just remember – if your guests wanted to stay somewhere that looked like a hotel, they would have just booked a hotel!

Instead, your guests have made the incredibly wise choice (if we do say so ourselves) of booking a stay in your home, which we believe should reflect the unique style of yourself as the host, and the city that you live in.

Gallery walls are a quick, easy, no muss, no fuss way of adding a little extra pizzazz to your already beautiful home. And luckily, there are an infinite number of ways that you can achieve this modern interior design look. Here are a few of our favourites below!

Take a lead from Sian. Don’t be afraid to mix colours, sizes and textures – the more the merrier! See more photos of her beautiful home here.

You don’t have to stick to photographs, paintings and prints: why not frame a few of your favourite magazine covers to showcase to your guests your own personal interests?

Despite the name, gallery ‘walls’ don’t actually have to be mounted on the wall; take lead from Paul, and layer them up against one another. A perfect solution for those who are constantly redecorating!

Mixing colours doesn’t have to be reserved to just the prints. Using different colours of frames can help a blank wall pop that little bit more! See more photos of Ian’s home here!
