With over 40,000 listings on the site, Paris is the most prolific city on Airbnb. New York and London come in second and third. Airbnb’s annual conference will be held in the City of Light this year, the first one outside the company’s home base of San Francisco.
Whenever I go to a new place, I often feel like I’m playing hide-and-seek as I search for the proper house number. Address visibility is a problem, and in the past I’ve noticed some creative solutions: neon signs, giant digits, and brightly painted numbers. But recently, I stumbled upon an idea that I had never seen before.
Name: Julie Carroll
Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota
I live in a classic 700 square foot Art Deco apartment in Minneapolis. The building was constructed in the early 1930s and maintains much of the original charm (cast iron radiators, porcelain farm sink, crystal door knobs, and the ornate brass light fixtures.)
The next time you have a long flight or find yourself stuck in a waiting room, do yourself a favor and check out one of these beautiful e-magazines. We’ve rounded up ten of the best, from classics like Lonny to lesser-known gems, that cover everything from decor and food, to weddings and travel.
What does a nearly frozen wave look like? Thanks to Jonathan Nimerfroh, now we know. The photographer snapped these slushy waves off the coast of Nantucket.
A cafe in a cross-shaped tent, a mirrored hideaway and a pop-up art gallery are among the shelters that architects have dotted along a frozen river in Winnipeg, Canada (+ slideshow). (more…)

Our home is old enough that it has outdated popcorn ceilings, but we don’t have enough time or money to have them all removed. So to make our room more intimate and relaxing as well as mask the holey (yes there are a couple small holes in it) ceiling, I decided to construct two bedroom canopies.
Name: Anabelle, Edward and Fifi
Location: Mile End; Montreal, Canada
Size: 900 square feet
Years lived in: 1 1/2 years; Owned
Upon entering Anabelle and Edward’s apartment, I immediately noticed the numerous qualities that make this space a quiet, comfortable and very “homey” home. Brick walls, hardwood floors, moldings, wood elements, architectural details, and many books make this condo a place full of charm, character and style. Those shelves in the dining area are just stunning!
