A travel revolution for designers and visual artists

I have definitely caught the house swapping bug. We started with Intervac a few years back but now that Behomm.com has launched I don’t think I’ll ever go back to hotel rooms and expensive apartments. Behomm.com is the only home exchange community for design and art professionals. Just look at some of the homes they have on their books. Some look like they’re straight from the pages of Elle Decoration.

Behomm was created by Barcelona-based graphic designers Agustí Juste and Eva Calduch, (a lovely couple who went out of their way to meet us in Barcelona during out last house swap)  longtime home exchangers with a passion for aesthetics and travel. After spending long hours every year picking through crowded exchange sites to find appealing homes that met their interests, they realized that nearly all of the members on their list were creative professionals like themselves. They got captured by an idea they couldn’t get rid of: create a site to meet their own needs and connect all designers and visual artists worldwide – a site full of like-minded people with a similar love of tasteful things and interest in a more enriching travel experience.

HOW IT WORKS: Behomm membership is by subscription, € 35 for a first 6-month trial or € 95 per year, and is invitation-only to visual art professionals. The site provides visitors with a handy search tool for finding friends among the members to request an invitation or apply for one of the special founders’ invitations. Behomm is open to homes of all types, shapes and sizes, in areas from urban to beach to countryside. The co-founders firmly believe that beauty and aesthetics are not tied to luxury — in fact, they personally get very happy when a small and beautiful home registers!
