Paris is famous for many things, including culture, couture, and cuisine. However, did you know that it is also regarded as the European city with the most beautiful homes by tourists?
The deadly COVID-19 virus’s new variant thwarted a much-anticipated happy start to the New Year. However, there are high expectations that travel will resume soon, and the digital media is hard at work predicting travel trends for 2022, including which cities will attract the most tourists and why. While the parameters and cities change, Uswitch, a UK-based online and telephone comparison and switching platform, has come up with an intriguing concept. Which city would you like to visit because of its beautiful homes once international travel restrictions are lifted?
While the playing field is still wide open, Uswitch decided to investigate the European scenario using Pinterest, a popular image sharing and digital media service.
According to the study, Paris (pictured above) is still at the top of people’s minds when it comes to European cities worth visiting for their beautiful homes, as evidenced by the fact that it has 955 boards (a collection where users save specific pins) dedicated to it on Pinterest. Three Italian cities are among the top ten cities in the world.
With 256 Pinterest boards, Berlin is a distant second. With 180 boards, Amsterdam (Netherlands) is in third place, followed by Athens with 177 boards. Venice, Barcelona, Rome, Dublin, Florence, Edinburgh, and Vienna make up the remaining top ten cities.
The study also looked into the key characteristics that have made these cities so appealing to visitors. Experts on the platform have also added some pointers that are likely to assist do-it-yourselfers in bringing their favourite city vibes into their own homes.
According to the study, people value the classic Parisian home and interior because of the city’s stunning historic architecture. According to the researchers, if you want to add a touch of Parisian flair to your home, avoid over-staging and instead focus on textures, colour, and material. Berliners, it appears, have mastered the simple yet effective interior and exterior with their edgy and artsy vibe. As a result, a DIY fix could include antiques such as a vintage brass lamp to add a touch of class to your home.
Reykjavik, on the other hand, was at the bottom of the list, and appears to be one of the least-loved European cities on Pinterest, according to the study. “Our research discovered only one board dedicated to the city’s homes and 54 pins, the fewest of any European city studied. This could be due to the fact that, while ironclad homes are effective in cold weather, they are not the most attractive.”
On the bottom, there are two boards dedicated to homes in the city and 94 pins in Strasbourg, France, and three boards dedicated to homes in the city on the platform in Innsbruck, Austria. Tallinn, Estonia’s capital, and Ghent, Belgium, each had seven boards.
