One way to make your Airbnb decor to stand out is to have unique design details. Guests love personal touches that make your Airbnb feel like a home! As you scroll through the Instagram accounts of other Airbnb’s, are you noticing all those fresh design details? Good news, your Airbnb decor does not have to cost a fortune, you can DIY it!

Why not start creating some fun design touches for your own Airbnb decor? Here are my favorite DIY projects that I’ve fallen in love with this year! You can revamp, hack and create the Airbnb design space of your dreams.

This extra long lumbar pillow is perfect as a decorative bed pillow for guests to really make a design statement in the room.
