Airbnb Design


As the demand for short term accommodation increases there’s never been a better time to invest in creating a better experience for your customers.

We can make your property stand out from the crowd to get higher occupancy rates and prices. This is done by designing cohesive and desirable accommodation interiors that offer the amenities and visual positives of hotel interiors while also still providing the more lived-in look and feel that Airbnb users expect.

Whether your property is new construction, federation or anything in between, we have over a decade of experience in both small and large scale projects. This means no matter your vision or project size we can exceed your expectations.

You have the choice of partial or full staging, and we will recommend whether to work with your existing furniture or start anew with a blank canvas.

We believe that the project is not fully finished until the outcome is professionally photographed. I will always recommend expert photography to maximise the traffic to your listing. To aid with this, I can connect you with my network of expert interior photographers to take the best photos of your accommodation and make your online listing stand apart from the rest.

Peta provided me with a wonderful and professional services and within the budget.

In Late 2017 we purchased a very rundown 2 story and ground floor retail shop in a Heritage listed property at 93 Elizabeth Street Hobart. After a year and a half of planning and design followed by a further year of building during the Covid gloom our baby had been born. But we needed someone to bring it all together with a sense of styling and flair and we found the perfect match with Peta of P1Design. Peta has worked with our feelings and thoughts and produced this magnificent outcome in our Saddlers House apartments, which now gain glowing endorsements from many and far. Thank you Peta, you have done a wonderful job for us, and we are very appreciative and thankful.

In late 2017 we purchased very rundown 2 story Heritage listed property at 93 Elizabeth St Hobart. After a year of structural renovation & professional help from Peta of P1 Design we have been delighted with the final outcome of our 4 AirBnB apartments. Furthermore, the positioning of all pieces of furniture, the colour scheme & final furnishings including curtain & blind selection, cushion, throws, and carpet choices, have created the finishing touches that has produced a perfect executive ”home away from home” feel that we were aiming for. The accommodation has been presented in a way that has attracted our ideal clientele & has been responsible for positive reviews & many return bookings. We would most definitely recommend Peta from P1 Design. Peta has a great work ethic & was a delight to work with. Her hard work sourcing furniture & art work from Tasmania & Interstate has achieved a wonderful outcome that has proved to help make our business profitable now & well into the future.

We originally engaged P1 Design to set up our investment property at Terrigal so that it could be used as an Airbnb. Services included selection, sourcing and procuring art, furniture, cabinetry design, lighting, soft furnishings, floor coverings etc. so that it all fitted into the conceptual brief of a ‘relaxed, high end beach style’ whilst considering the property’s commercial requirements and guests’ comfort. P1 Design nailed the brief as the general design and aesthetics are both beautiful and functional. The property draws a large amount of interest from holiday makers due to its presentation. P1 Design also styled our own apartment which we later sold at a new block record and at a suburb record per square metre thanks in no small part to its overall aesthetics. Peta is a pleasure to work with, has an eye for great design, has flawless execution and communication skills and we can’t recommend her highly enough for both residential and commercial properties.

Peta and her team were absolute professionals. Prompt, experienced, honest and efficient. I found the whole experience from beginning to end extremely easy as Peta always came back to me with updates and ideas. It’s very rare that you get what you pay for but in this instance I can’t speak highly enough of P1 Design as they went that extra mile to ensure I got the end result I was looking for and that we agreed to at the outset.
