Fabulous and revealing: 100 Famous Artists and Their Studios (have you seen Francis Bacon’s?!)
Scanned image: Henri Matisse’s studio, from the recent Cut Outs exhibition at Tate Modern. My favourite.
I love this idea. A home exchange – you travel and stay in someone else’s house for free and they come and stay in yours – specifically for designers and visual artists. Behomm, which simply means to stay at home, is an invitation-only home exchange site for people with a love of aesthetics and travel. It’s not about luxury and wealth; rather, because of the like-mindedness of the home owners, the homes are going to be at the least, considered and aesthetically interesting, and at most, beautiful. ‘It’s about sharing and making personal connections – a prime example of the enriching ‘shared economy’ movement growing across the globe…’ And a wonderful aside – Behomm donates 5% of their proceeds to Architecture for Humanity, a charitable organisation that seeks architectural solutions to humanitarian crises.
