The Home Depot Showcases the Power of Home Décor and Design Through Vacation Rental Property Makeover with Vrbo and Design Influencers

November 04, 2022

The Home Depot® announces the launch of a refreshed vacation rental home – the Berkshires Home Makeover. Complete with furnishings and décor from The Home Depot including exclusive brands like Home Decorators Collection, StyleWell and The Company Store, the property has been revamped to offer a specialized, elevated experience for guests. The project was achieved in collaboration with Vrbo, part of Expedia Group, and select design-focused influencers.

“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, general manager for The Home Depot Home. “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.”

The Home Depot partnered with influencers including Holly and Brad Lauritzen (Our Faux Farmhouse), Fariha Nasir (Pennies for a Fortune) and Danielle Guerrero (Our Nest on Powell) to re-imagine the entrance, patio, kitchen, living areas and guest rooms within the rental home. Using only products found at The Home Depot or HomeDepot.com, the influencers created designs to exemplify current trends throughout the Berkshires property, including:

  • Timeless Décor Elements – modern styles are blended with traditional classics to create a nostalgic, comforting feel throughout the home. Combining 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 – using Behr’s 2023 Color of the Year “Blank Canvas” as a central backdrop throughout common areas, designers showcase possibilities to lean into the tranquility of the color with neutral tones in furniture, or balance it with bold, colorful accents throughout the space.

  • Functional Spaces + Cozy Living – from the coffee bar in the kitchen to the textiles in the bedrooms, the property has been thoughtfully curated for functionality through design and ultimate comfort for guests. For both rental properties and personal spaces, décor should serve a purpose and make one feel at ease within the space.

As the expert in private, whole home accommodations for families, Vrbo understands the power of staying with the people you love. With more than two million unique Vrbo properties to choose from, families prioritize selecting vacation homes with the best spaces and amenities they can enjoy together. Adding intentional home upgrades from The Home Depot not only enhances the guest experience, but also helps homeowners maximize the return on their investment properties.

As a part of the home transformation, 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.
