Airbnb and Pantone have come together to unveil a transformational experience that’s open to guests from all around the world. The ‘Outside In’ House opened in London this week and is hosted by the world-renowned authority on colour, Pantone. The house provides an antidote to the January blues by encouraging all those who enter it to embrace 2017 with fresh optimism and excitement.
To celebrate PANTONE’s Colour of the Year 2017 (PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery) a Clerkenwell home has been transformed into an indoor-outdoor oasis so that, for the very first time, people can truly live the colour. Promoting growth and vitality for the year ahead, this magical haven features a woodland reception, an indoor greenhouse that doubles as a dining room, garden bedroom with mown lawn, topiaries and calming plants, a tented cubby-hole for children to sleep in and a herb garden kitchen.
We’re also showcasing some of the best London-based Airbnb Experiences that are currently available through the Airbnb app. All Experiences in the house are interactive and inspired by living with nature and surrounded by greenery: guests will hear the soft sounds of nature throughout, forage from its walls for vegetables and herbs, drink tea with leaves picked from a hydroponics installation, choose plants to make terrarium vases with and pick leaves to design prints with.
Guests can book overnight stays in the Outside In house, which is now a live listing available on Airbnb, and they can also immerse themselves in this green world by booking into a number of London based Airbnb Experiences, available on the 27th, 28th and 29th of January. Below are a list of the Experiences available to book via Eventbrite, or, alternatively, each full Experience can be booked with hosts at any time of year via the Airbnb app:
