The Home Depot is refreshing a vacation rental home in an initiative it calls the Berkshires Home Makeover, a collaboration with Vrbo and design influencers that will include a home furnishings update.
The makeover will include furnishings and décor from Home Depot exclusive brands such as the Home Decorators Collection, StyleWell and The Company Store. The property has been reconstituted to offer a specialized, elevated experience for guests.
Home Depot influencer partners, including Holly and Brad Lauritzen of Our Faux Farmhouse, Fariha Nasir of Pennies for a Fortune and Danielle Guerrero of Our Nest on Powell, will help the retailer reset the entrance, patio, kitchen, living areas and guest rooms within a rental home. In using only products found at The Home Depot or homedepot.com, the influencers created designs to exemplify current trends throughout the Berkshires property. Consumers can see and book the home at www.vrbo.com/2579114?noDates=true&unitId=3149424, and check out the work of the influencers at www.homedepot.com/c/BerkshiresHomeMakeover.
The trends include:
- Timeless Décor Elements. A blend of modern styles and traditional classics set to create a nostalgic, comforting feel throughout the home. The combination of vintage-inspired wallpaper and lighting with contemporary furniture creates a sense of comfort and familiarity, which has become increasingly more important when considering home design.
- Balanced Color Palette. Behr’s 2023 color of the year Blank Canvas acts as a central backdrop throughout common areas as designers emphasize the tranquility of the hue with neutral tones in furniture, often balancing it with bold, colorful accents in the space.
- Functional Spaces + Cozy Living. From the coffee bar in the kitchen to the textiles in the bedrooms, Home Depot curated the furnishing for functionality through design and for ultimate guest comfort.
As a part of the home transformation initiative, The Home Depot will make in-kind donations of unused furniture, décor and housewares items to nonprofit organizations including Habitat for Humanity, House2Home, Safe Haven Family Shelter and Oasis Center, the company noted.
“Making upgrades to any home or rental property with furniture, wall art, wallpaper and textiles can truly change its personality without the need for a major renovation,” said Corinne Bentzen, Home Depot general manager. “Through the makeover of a vacation rental in the Berkshires, we’re excited to showcase just how impactful these easy and attainable home updates, from fresh bedding and throws to functional seating, can be for travelers and property owners.”
