Whether you run an Airbnb, or just want to make your houseguests feel at home, there are a few things you can do to make your space cozy and inviting. Just beware, your guests may never want to leave...


We've set up a lot of Airbnb's lately (Nashville's a lovely place to visit in the spring, y'all!) and the single most important element is COFFEE. We love the all white Keurig Brewing System because it blends with any room decor, is simple to use, and provides a 24 hour coffee fix.

We set-up a complete coffee station using this Gold and Marble Tray from Target (you're welcome), Coffee MugsGold and White Canisters to hold the coffee pods, and added Fishs Eddy Serving Pieces as accents.

We also added a stool for extra seating (very important for an Airbnb!) and these Baskets for backstock coffee pods.


It's always fun to add some Game Room Sets to a bedroom or living space. It adds a little whimsy and lets them know you want them to enjoy their stay. It's also fun to add some local books, or travel books, like this set of Field Guides, (And because we know you'll ask here is a link to the White Alarm Clock!)


Bottles of water by the bedside are a must, but it's also nice to add a tray of snacks and candy. We loaded up this Acrylic Tray (we also love the White Lacquer Tray below) with local Nashville candy that we got at our ALL TIME favorite store White's Mercantile (there's no online shop, but the store will ship!).

We also added a Sugar Paper Guest Book and a set of Colored Pencils for guests to leave notes, messages, or in Nashville - maybe a hit song? You never know and it's worth a shot.


We always add a few fun welcoming accents like Candles, and greenery. The hard thing about flowers is that they die quickly, and plants need maintenance (I personally have killed even the hardest to kill succulents). We found a few go-to options though that we love. West Elm makes really GOOD faux Plants that you can place on shelves or tabletops - they look great and can survive maximum neglect. Another option is a dried flower, like Lavender. They add a bit of color and also make the room smell nice.


Most people unpack their suitcase with the inevitable "UGH, I forgot ." And it's always such a relief to open the bathroom drawer and find a replacement for what you're missing.

We organized this drawer using this Drawer Insert and contents from this Travel Kit, deluxe Hand Lotions, and of course, a phone charger.

If your bathroom doesn't have drawers, you can use wall units like the below Metal Wall Organizer or the Black Wall Mirror with Shelf from Target that gives you extra storage space for products.

Just promise that if you do all of the above, you invite us for a sleepover!

Tip 1: Stock Up on Healthy Staples

If you want to start eating healthier, you obviously need to stock your fridge with healthy food. It helps to create a list of core staples to have on hand at all times. This takes the guesswork out of grocery shopping, and you’ll feel more prepared during meal and snack time. 

Tip 2: Edit, Edit, Edit

When it comes to actually organizing your fridge, don’t skip the editing process. Even if you don’t feel like it, start by removing every single item from your fridge until it’s completely empty. We suggest keeping a trash bag nearby and tossing anything expired as you go. And since your fridge shelves are probably due for a deep clean, here’s your chance to actually get in there and wipe off that weird sticky layer! 

Tip 3: Create Zones

Every category should live in a designated zone (location) and preferably, within a contained and visible home (clear product). This allows everything to be accessible, accounted for, and aesthetically pleasing...while also maximizing shelf space.

Tip 4: Label It

Labeling isn’t just the finishing touch, it’s actually the secret sauce of the system. Labels are really just straightforward directions for where items go. They concretely identify the contents that live in each container. It not only helps *you* maintain the system, but it holds your kids, your partner, and anyone else using the space, too. 

*Reminder: Think broad, not specific when labeling your categories. It should be a simple road map that’s flexible enough for the occasional outlier. 

Tip 5: Freeze It

Your freezer is valuable real estate in your fridge set up, so clear out those old popsicles and spilled frozen peas to make room for favorites your family will actually eat. We're looking at you last minute meals.

We love using our Freezer Bins to contain the chaos amongst the frozen pizzas and kids snacks. Organizing this space will take the dread out of opening this often-forgotten area, we promise!
