Selection of color for your home

When designing a home for short-term renting and digital nomads, it is important to keep in mind some good practices that will make your guest comfortable, and have them recommend your place to their friends and family.

One of the most important things when it comes to designing your perfect home is choosing colors. The colors that surround you significantly affect your mood and comfort in the environment. From bright and gentle colors that make you feel comfortable and awake, to dark ones that create a dose of mystery and intimacy in your home. Home is your canvas, and you paint it the way you want to feel every morning when you wake up and every night when you go to sleep. Since the range of colors is unlimited, and our moods are constantly changing, we are here to help you make the best decision for your home. It is always good to keep in mind that your future guests can have different preferences, it is good to find a balance between what you like and what will be appreciated by people staying at your place.
