In case you haven't noticed, there have been a number of greenery-themed stays in various locations around the world popping up across Airbnb's site. As we chug towards fall and winter, it might be nice to add a touch of plant-inspired cheer to your life. (It's actually scientifically proven that plants can boost your mood!)
Take this forest-and-heaven-themed apartment in Melbourne's CBD at $133 per night, for instance. Though it's about to be spring down under, this foliage-filled Airbnb Plus vacation rental stays green year-round, thanks to faux ivy climbing the walls, forest wallpaper, and a moss-like carpet. You'll feel like a woodland fairy as you sit in the swinging chair surrounded by your personal indoor garden (aka your living room). There's even more forest fun in the bathroom — as you soak in the tub, you can gaze up at a garden wall.
