Finding the Perfect Decor for Your Hudson Valley Vacation Rental

The Hudson Valley has long been known as an ideal vacation destination, with its magnificent mountain ranges, quaint towns and tourist attractions like Woodstock and Storm King. But if you’re staying in the area, why spend your time sightseeing when you could spend it getting to know the area better? That’s where Airbnb comes in: the online rental marketplace makes it easy to find and book vacation rentals around the world.

Understand your goals when it comes to operating an Airbnb

What are you trying to accomplish? Are you looking to find a certain number of guests in a certain amount of time? Or are you just looking to earn some extra cash on the side? Whatever your goals, it’s important to understand them before embarking on a redesign. This way you can focus on small changes that help you achieve your goals. Also think about where your guests are coming from (your region or from state to state?): will they prefer a specific aesthetic? Having solid answers to these questions is key to maximizing your Airbnb’s appeal.

Research your neighborhood

The Hudson Valley region of New York State is widely considered one of the most beautiful in America. The natural beauty and scenic landscapes are sure to make your guests feel at home – and what better way to capture their memories than with a few interior design touches? As you may know, Airbnb has a huge following in the Hudson Valley, so it’s essential that you consider its unique style when designing or redecorating your space.

Choose colors

Warm, soothing and relaxing colors will help give your home a vacation feel and make it look bright and inviting. Brighter colors such as reds or yellows should be used sparingly or in small doses when decorating. Lighter colors like whites, tans, grays, and blues can go well with any color palette if added in small doses as well. Neutral colors are ideal because you don’t have to worry about clashes, but also remember that there are many ways to add warm hues to your space without overdoing it. Adding wood tones, warm bedding items, and bright throw pillows are great ways to bring these eye-pleasing hues into a space.

Create mood boards

Mood boards (or inspiration boards) are great for creating a central location to collect and organize all visual inspiration. If you’re hosting out-of-town travelers at an Airbnb, add their photos to your board to better understand what they like. This will help you ensure that everyone is happy with their place.

Use Pinterest to find ideas from others

First, search Pinterest for related keywords: Airbnb Catskills or Hudson Valley Airbnb. Then follow people who are trending with their design – they might have some great ideas. If you’re not sure where to start, try searching sites like Houzz, where users upload photos of their interiors and other home essentials.

Find parts on sites like Overstock and Wayfair

Decorating a vacation rental is different from decorating your home, both in how you purchase items and where you get them. Sites like Overstock and Wayfair make it easy to find affordable, chic furniture at an affordable price. When shopping online, keep in mind that if it is to be used as part of a vacation rental, you don’t have to worry about spots or high traffic areas – and there are plenty of interesting options available (even modern!) on these sites.

Also shop at local stores

Before hitting the big box stores, take a look at what local stores in the Hudson Valley have to offer. You might be surprised at the character and charm that an independent store can add to the decor of your vacation rental. It can also save you money – IKEA isn’t exactly known for its competitive prices!

Mix vintage pieces with modern pieces

In our opinion, mixing vintage pieces with modern pieces is a great way to ensure that your design fits perfectly into any type of home. If you’re staying in an older home, adding more modern pieces will give it a nice, chic look. If you’re staying in a newer house or apartment, adding some vintage accents will work just as well and give it some character!

Create a cohesive look by buying pieces in a similar style

The Catskills is a great place to rent an Airbnb if you’re looking to get away from it all. But before you start booking, be sure to create a cohesive look with furniture, murals, and rugs that will suit your property. By creating a theme that guests can connect with, you’ll make them feel more at home while vacationing in New York.
