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.

Behomm is by invitation only.

  1. Great idea, but I can’t help but feel a little irritated that it’s open to only visual designers and artists. I may be a writer, but I work with visuals all the time. I’m all for exclusivity (especially with their point about finding like-minded people), but why not open this to creatives?

  2. Thanks Grace for your comment. We do understand your question.
    We thought about opening Behomm to creatives… but the concept of being a creative is so wide and difficult to say who is a creative and who is not?… a creative is a person that creates… that have ideas… have solutions to problems… a scientific is a creative for sure… an economist can be a creative… everybody can be a creative…

    We narrowed Behomm because home exchange works better when you exchange with somebody similar to you… much more easy to match well and succeed in your home exchanges…. We personally are graphic designers and that’s why we limited the community to visual professions… Hope this explanation helps.

  3. I was way too excited when I found out about Behomm! Love Love Love

  4. We love home swapping. Once you have done it you will be hooked. We are both architects so joining Behomm is the obvious choice for us. The homes on it are simply amazing. We are looking forward to our 5th swap in October!

  5. We swapped twice, and it was a wonderfull experience.
    Homes on Behomm are just amazing and give us the envy to exchange with every one !
    So happy to be members !!!

  6. To exchange is a very good way of living. To live somewhere on holiday is perfect! We did it 8 timea and we just joined behomm because there isn’t such a beautiful collection of homes for homeexchanges in the world. We hope to exchange with another member in the near future; our houseboat should be a good exchange ;-)

  7. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written much better! Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward this post to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a very good read.

    Many thanks for sharing!
