Ready to get out of Charlotte for a summer trip, but aware of the ever-increasing gas prices in the area?
For around $18 (one way), you can skip the gas money and take an Amtrak from Charlotte to Greensboro for the weekend, where you’ll soon be able to book an AirBnb owned by an HGTV host.
Ursula Carmona, host of “Table Wars: The Look for Less,” has listed her 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom guesthouse on AirBnB. The garden side cottage will feature shades of pink, blue and gold to add to a fabulous and cozy atmosphere. The remodeled rental house is perfect for a girls trip with a home away from home vibe. While you’re there, you can soak up the designer decor and maybe even take home some interior design ideas.

- LIVING ROOM: Carmona added a rich, glamorous vibe to the small living room. “You can really add that real standout moment with these kinds of rooms with beautiful, well-positioned furniture,” she told CharlotteFive earlier this week. She added throw pillows and a bookcase to create a well-layered space. The royal blue seating in the living room adds a nice splash of color and is perfectly placed by the bookcase to allow for a comfortable spot to open a book.
- PATIO: When designing the patio, Carmona wanted to make the space feel like a living space. “People don’t always think about taking the outdoors and extending the indoors,” she said. Yellow accents on the patio add to the beautiful scenery outside the guest house. The patio is the ideal atmosphere to relax in nature or chat with your girlfriends.
- BEDROOM: The pink pillows on the bed provide a great contrast to the blue and gold tones of the room. The bedroom is the perfect place to relax and lay down for the night.
