An Airbnb Content Manager's Chic San Francisco Studio — House Tour

Name: Holly
Location: The Mission — San Francisco, California
Size: 650 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

The first thing you notice when you open the door to Holly’s apartment in San Francisco’s popular Mission neighborhood is the light in the hallway that runs two-thirds of the length of the space. Windows all along the right side — some stained glass — make it feel very airy and ethereal. And the style with which she chooses to adorn the walls — delicate, simple, and thoughtful — spills into the whole apartment. Overall, her place gives off a bit of a Parisian vibe, which is ironic, since when I mentioned my impression, Holly said she’s never actually been to Paris. Though as a Content Manager at Airbnb, she’s likely seen a lot of the style that goes into Parisian homes as she goes about her daily work.

By day I am a graphic designer at a tech company, but in my spare time I devote my personal creativity to my house — it fulfills that other part of my design spirit to turn away from the screen and get my hands on DIY projects, searching Craigslist for unique pieces, and combing through Pinterest — all while consulting with my mom. After years of bouncing from place to place, there’s nothing better than coming home to an actual home after a long day to a space that feels so welcoming and comfortable.”
