How to Decorate Your Walls: 5 Airbnb Spaces to Inspire You

Posted on May - 27 - 2015

Airbnb is known for amazing, low-cost rentals in uncommon places, but it also gives us some serious inspiration when it comes to decorating with art. At Scoop Art, we are always looking for innovative ways to display art in our homes. Click over the pictures below to see five unique Airbnb homes — we won’t judge if you get the urge to do some online shopping on our website after reading.

There’s Paris, and then there’s Paris with style. Liven up an otherwise bland home with a bright pop of color in key locations around your home.

This masterpiece by Alex Cuchilla is sure to make any home magnetic.

Displaying your unique taste in art is all about giving your space a “me” moment. Who says you can’t pair some vintage furniture with a striking piece of modern art? Give your old sofa some much needed oomph with a piece like this, by Efraín Cruz.

For serious art lovers, there’s nothing like an apartment filled with peculiar artwork. Splashes of modern and contemporary art creep up even in the most unlikely places, making us wish we had a masterpiece like this by Lezzueck Asturias to make a bold statement.

Visual balance is key, as pictured in this loft, even if you want to mix and match. Be sure to check out Scoop Art for pieces that will make your home feel like a modern SoHo art gallery.
