Have you heard of Behomm yet? It’s a home exchange site exclusively for designers and visual artists, where you can switch homes with other style minded people around the world. So no more searching the net for hours to find a place to stay that looks decent enough for your next vacation, here you have a carefully selected collection of beautiful homes around the world, available for free in exchange for letting the owners stay at your place while you are enjoying theirs.
I always prefer to stay in private apartments when I travel as it makes you feel more like a local, and the freedom to sit at the breakfast table with messy hair and be grumpy until the coffee has kicked in is quite invaluable. Also, traveling with kids is so much easier when you have a real home to withdraw to after a long day out, instead of having to crowd together on the bed of a small hotel room where the only available activity is to watch tv…
Many of the homes on Behomm have been featured in magazines, and choosing which ones to show here was tough, but below is a small selection to give you an idea of what you have to pick from.
This post was made in collaboration with Behomm, but as always, the words, opinions and image selection are all my own.
