A Picture Perfect B&B

Whilst browsing airbnb (for the first time, might I add!) for somewhere to stay in Brighton, I hit the jackpot when I stumbled across the gorgeous Number 34. I ummed and ahhed for a couple of days, finally settling on the Gold room. Then oddly enough one of my absolute favourite bloggers Katy stayed there and posted some seriously gorgeous photos of her room, the Silver room, which I took as a good omen as she's a girl of taste.

As soon as we walked through the door and I laid eyes on those shelves I was in love. Lots of the decor at Number 34 is upcycled and vintage, making it so unique and full of character. Set against a backdrop of whitewashed walls and the kind of painted floorboards I have dreams about, it's a gorgeous, light and airy haven.

The Gold room is gorgeous, and I spent the first afternoon in Brighton really looking forward to getting back and trying out that comfy bed! It was so lovely to return to somewhere so homely that night, with scented candles in little lanterns dotted around on the stairs. When we turned on the lamp we noticed that the wallpaper behind the bed was shimmering with golden glitter, a gorgeous touch! You can't see it in the day, so it isn't garish at all, and I found myself wondering where I could incorporate glitter wallpaper at home, something I never would have expected to like.

I loved the little details like the bicycle print on the bedsheets and the framed pictures of cats - it certainly made me feel at home! The owners also had two gorgeous cats, which were so big and snuggly it almost made up for being away from my own naughty kitty.

I wish I had managed to photograph the kitchen, which was also totally Pinterest-worthy, but there were always other guests around. It was a lovely, friendly atmosphere though, and I really enjoyed chatting to the other guests over a coffee in the morning, with a cat snoozing away in the corner. It really was so easy to feel at home. I'd definitely recommend checking out Number 34 if you're looking for somewhere to stay on a budget in Brighton, and can see us returning in the future. I fancy the Silver room next time!
