I just got my hands on a ZigZag City Guide New York. It’s a guide made for kids. It comes with beautifully designed cards filled with fun facts, history, and activities to do. Also available in an edition for San Francisco, London, Rome and Paris. Really adorable! Can’t wait to show it to E and T.
Behomm, the “Airbnb for design-minded folks”, just opened up their home exchange platform to anyone that considers themselves a creative type. Behomm started out strictly for people working in the creative industry: The homes they feature are stunning. Here’s how you can join: Get an invitation from an existing member or apply for an invitation.
The makers behind Scouted want to bring a human element to local recommendations by putting the people first, not the location. There are no editors, no experts, no curators—well, a little on the homepage—just real, honest people talking about the places they love. Scouted is encouraging you to find places that match your taste through the people who actually go there.
Find some like minded people and check out the places they enjoy. Share your own recommendations and help others discover your favorite places and activities.
Bern Hyperlapsed is a short and incredibly beautiful portrait of Switzerland’s Capitol, Bern. It merges a view on traditional sights with the novel visual impression allowed by hyperlapse photography. The film consists of around 3500 single pictures, mainly taken between December 2013 and March 2014.
My wonderfully talented studiomate Meg Lewis just launched Scouted.in, a field guide to NYC, full of recommendations by tasteful internet friends. (Bekka, of team Tattly, is sharing her favorite NYC spots!)
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.
The Infinite Home Tool is quite a poetic object, serving a double function of a suitcase and a furniture piece. Living out of a suitcase gets an entirely new meaning with this piece, as the suitcase is more like a instant shelving unit, whereever you put it down. Charming. (And yes, probably not all that practical)
