Birdhouse Replicas of AirBnB’s Most Charming Homes

By

19th Dec, 2013

I think it’s about time I added birdhouses on to my list of favourite things. “No creatures travel on earth travel quite like birds do,” says AirBnB who have come up with the perfect little project to showcase their most charming homes to rent and share their passion for travel and hospitality. Part of a campaign by the Pereira & O’Dell agency, Home to You presents 50 miniature birdhouse replicas of homes from all over the world– where you can actually stay, of course (but now our feathered friends can too).

Handmade with a huge amount of love, talented artists including lead artist Joshua Stricklin, have thought of every detail to accommodate the birds, even incorporating spanish moss nests to the miniature replica bed mattresses and crafting tiny televisions that play non-stop bird cartoons!

Once all the birdhouses were ready to roll out of the workshop, they were brought to New Orleans where they’re now hanging in an ancient oak tree in Audubon Park, offering a safe and comfortable place to rest for the ultimate traveler that soars the skies.

Check out some comparisons of the birdhouses with their real-life AirBnB listings… (and find them all listed here)

And now for the icing on the cake, a film by award-winning director Alma Har’el,  following the project and its creators from start to finish. “This film is a celebration of our passion for travel and the kind of hospitality that makes people feel at home anywhere,” says AirBnB. Check it out:

It’s absolutely worth watching the behind-the-scenes videos too, especially this one that goes further into the artists’ workshop to see how all the little details were made…

It’s not often that you find an advertising campaign so wonderfully inspiring, and this one is probably the best I’ve seen in a long time, warming the heart just in time for Christmas. Bravo AirBnB!
