Hi there! How are you today? My family and I just went on a last minute summer vacation beach trip. We had a wonderful time exploring gardens, shopping, swimming, and eating. The hotel we stayed in was a one bedroom suite and had a really cute layout. Since we have to downsize when we move to Japan in January, I’ve been looking for inspiration on small space decorating ideas with some rental friendly tips!
First, a few shots of our cute hotel suite overlooking the ocean. It felt very peaceful.
