"Renting guest rooms to travelers affords me more time with the people I love and energy for what matters most."

Julie has a knack for words, repurposed furniture, and extreme bargain hunting. After successfully turning spare rooms into profitable, whimsical hideaways for 800+ guests, Julie's newest venture--BOHO HOSPITALITY-- takes her experience with short-term rentals & guests room design.

"I want to run a Bed & Breakfast where everything in it is for sale."

 

When I was a little girl, my Grandmother and I would often discuss my future. Unlike many youngsters, my dreams did not involve ponies or princes: I wanted to be an innkeeper. And I wanted to do it with my Grandma.

 

 Before BOHO HOSPITALITY

 A few years before she died, I got my wish (sort of). In 2010, I opened my first AirBNB above my small furniture boutique in Denver, Colorado. Downstairs I reinvented found furniture and upstairs I shared my living space with paying guests. It wasn't exactly the Bed & Breakfast I envisioned with a barn out back filled with antiques--but it wasn't too far off, either.

 

Giving People What They Want

When guests wandered downstairs, we'd typically end up chatting over a cup of coffee. These world travelers filled my head with adventure stories and ideas for improving the world were common. Tiny houses. Community gardens. Bonfire singalongs.

 

More than anything, we talked about our daydreams.

  • How do we get rid of excess baggage and simply live?
  • What's the trick for embracing freedom through creativity?
  • What does it take to fashion the life of our dreams?

The seed was planted, and up sprang  BOHO HOSPITALITY.

In addition to running BOHO HOSPITALITY and my guest properties, I'm an English professor. Not only am I getting older every year while my students stay the same age, I'm also noticing other kinds of gaps growing in the world around us.

 

"I wish there was some way I could help people connect with each other."

 

I said this after a sniper killed 58 people down the street from where I live. I say this on days when I'm feeling lonely. I say this when I notice my own compassion waning for people panhandling on the street. I say it a lot.

 

Opening my home to guests--and helping others do the same--is my attempt to bring people closer together. Paying attention to the details within my home, my behavior toward others, and my intentions for how I want this world to be is BOHO HOSPITALITY.
