@SwissMiss: “How often do you come across a website that makes you jump out of your seat of excitement? I just did: Behomm is a house swap website for designers and visual artists only. The homes featured on the site are stunning, absolutely breathtaking. I am a big believer in house swaps, we do it every year with ‘friends of friends’ in Switzerland. You know: I stay at your house while you stay at my house.”
@ElleDecor: “A New Way to Travel: Behomm, an invite-only site for designers & visual artists offering home exchange worldwide.”
@SilviaGalluzzi: “Living in a beautiful home anywhere in the world for free and meeting people with shared interests is a dream for those who love the aesthetics! Thanks Behomm.”
Behomm is a travel revolution for creatives. A fast growing community. In 1 year we’re more than 700 members from Bali to New York. For security reasons we’re a by invitation-only community, we avoid anonymous registrations. Small homes are more than welcome. Aesthetics has nothing to do with luxury.

Watching traffic moving trough this intersection in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia makes my heart race a bit faster.
“Immediately after every lecture, meeting, or any significant experience, take 30 seconds — no more, no less — to write down the most important points. If you always do just this, said his grandfather, and even if you only do this, with no other revision, you will be okay.”

“The issue of craft is the difference between good and great. When you go from good to great, there’s this element of delight and magic that has to happen in design… That’s where great design comes from — great design changes us. We smile, we laugh.”
– Maria Guidice
Inspired by folk art wall hangings of the late 19th century, Three Potato Four’s Home Sweet Home Banners are printed on imported Belgian linen mounted on solid birch dowels fitted with hanging waxed twine.
Another few days, and I’ll be scooting through Brooklyn with my very own Amish Made Scooter. Can’t wait.

Created for Lady Gaga, the Volantis is the world’s first flying dress and heralds the beginning of a new era for human flight, says one of its designers Benjamin Males.
It made me laugh.
Anne Dérian, an architect by trade, is the force behind these beautiful mosaic art pieces. Originally from France, Anne now lives in Berlin and does mosaics on commission basis. In times where everything is about speed, I find incredible beauty in the slowness and thoughtfulness that the mosaic process represents. I’d hire her in a heart beat.
