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 Studio

Some days I wish I could escape all that’s going on and retreat to place like this. Float Watershed is a small studio in the Willamette Valley, in Oregon. With a 100 square feet, it was designed to be a writing studio for a philosophy professor with a love for nature. She was the one who actively participated in the design, together with her daughter, the designer.

The view is spectacularly tranquil.

Float Watershed has many eco-friendly features. Firstly, the studio has small tunnels under it that can gather rare reptiles. There’s the water collection basin for birds and deer. Also, the owner wanted a roof that amplifies rain sounds.

The construction uses a steel frame, stainless steel bolts and cedar and glass enclosure layer. The entire studio is removable and recyclable. If there’s the need, the wooden elements can be recycled piece-by-piece. Also, the steel frame can be removed, reused or recycled, depending on the situation. Read more here.

Beautiful Reading Nooks

Reading is one of my favorite past times however lately I’ve been doing most of it
on plane while traveling. During the year it’s usually reserved for bedtime but when
I do have the time I prefer one of these type of spaces. Though summer calls for
outdoor reading spaces, reading nooks are a must all year round in Seattle.
For tips on how to create a cosy space, check out this article These four
beautifully styled reading nooks feature warm, muted color palettes and serious
arm-chair inspiration.
