When I travel, staying in an Airbnb is the perfect way to feel like a local and experience a city properly. This one we stayed at in Torino a few weeks ago was full of character and charm, and I wanted to share some images with you in case you are planning a trip.

Space Studio Aurora used to be a photography studio, and because of this the owner had kept a lot of related details such as cameras and photography books on display. The bedroom was big and airy, with a beautiful dark gray feature wall behind the bed. In the common room, space is limited, but it adds a cozy feel. There is no kitchen but you can find the essentials like a coffee machine and fridge. My favorite part of the apartment was the photo wall in the hallway, another nod to the past. The style in the apartment is a nice mix of vintage and minimal, with a lot of little things to discover.

I am planning a few other little trips this summer and will make sure I share more Airbnb’s! In the meantime, make sure you follow me on Instagram for more daily life and travel adventures.
