If you were looking for a reason to book a flight to London ASAP, Airbnb and Pantone’s amazing Greenery-inspired rental apartment might offer up the convincing you need. Forget just painting the walls Pantone’s trendy shade of green — Airbnb wants you to *literally* bring more Greenery into your world. The totally unique “Outside In” house brings Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year to life, featuring everything green, including grass carpet, an indoor greenhouse that double as a dining room (complete with an herb garden) and a bathroom that’s serious #junglelife goals. This vibrant space is sure to push aside those winter blues and give you some major spring vibes. Scroll down to see some pics and then head over to Airbnb to check out the full listing.
The greenhouse, err, dining room, is also being used by Airbnb to promote its new Experiences feature, where locals guide you through fun activities. The Pantone house experiences were chosen specifically to reflect on the “essence of Greenery,” and the classes include a gin-distilling class, a wallpaper-making class and a terrarium-building class, all of which are offered year-round in London, but held specially in the Pantone house for a limited time.
You’re guaranteed to find design inspiration everywhere you look, from the open shelves of green glassware to the plant-filled master bedroom, but you’ll be greeted with Greenery before you even cross the front door’s threshold.
Dinner isn’t included in your stay, but you are provided with a mini kitchen stocked with refreshments, like locally made bread, honey, granola and special cold-pressed green juices. You’ll also be sure to make use of the free herbs around the house — the listing encourages you to grab a handful for your dinner or a cup of tea. You might want to brush up on your edible plants before you do too much foraging.
The rules of the house are simple: Do bring positive energies, do use the lawn for yoga, do breathe deeply. But DON’T wear heels, don’t smoke (obvi), don’t bring your pets and don’t water the plants. Relax, Groundskeeper Joe is on hand in case you need any tidying up during your stay.
The two bedroom home can be booked for about $250 a night, but all the proceeds go to AIGA, the professional association for design. Plus, Pantone will match the cost of every stay, which means your vacation is really doing some good. As if you needed an excuse to take a vacay in this indoor jungle!
