Beautiful Airbnb in Philadelphia

If you are looking for an Airbnb stay in Philadelphia here’s your answer. I am swooning over the old world charm of this place; I could live here much less stay here temporarily. Not sure what I need to go to Philly for but this would be a good enough reason. BTW there is no television, but who needs a TV when you are surrounded by beauty. This unique Rittenhouse gem was renovated by Tara and Percy of Jersey Ice Cream Co.  Book it here.


Beautiful Scandinavian Design

I am so enamored by this this classic Scandinavian apartment belonging to designer Hanne Bloch featured on Bo Bedre. The mix of mid century furniture, rustic materials and design simplicity blends so beautifully together. The Serge Moille lighting fixtures, the classic white tufted mid-century modern lounger, the Eames dining chairs — all of it works perfectly together. And the dark stained hardwood floors work sets everything off perfectly!






Beautiful Blue

I’m a total fan of blue lately, the deeper and more saturated the better.
I especially like the playful nature of this kitchen back splash.

Beautiful Apartment Tour

Retired geography professor and avid world traveler
Bill Shumaker has amassed an eclectic collection of
art and artifacts from every corner of the globe.
Shumaker, who lives on the bottom two floors
of a 19th-century brownstone he purchased in
the early 1970s, has adorned his 2,400 sq. ft.
space with mementos that remind him of
international journeys and friends.
Everything in the house has a personal
connection. I love the car door idea.

The bathroom is full of car door pictures, a collection
that started when a visiting friend found a mustang door
on his stoop and decided to sketch it.  From then on it
was required that Bill’s house guests sketch, paint, sculpt,
photograph etc the door, which itself hangs in the bathroom.
