This is the gorgeous Hong Kong loft apartment of designer Candace Campos. The polished concrete floor in a deep grey adds a touch of an industrial feel, which is then contrasted by the crisp black and white interiors, and wooden accessories.

Candace rents out her loft apartment on Airbnb, which allows her to be able to work internationally.  “Airbnb funds my travel. I’ll rent out my place and go work from London for a week or two. The pursuit of mobility in my life turned me into a minimalist. People love staying at my place in Hong Kong because it is such a chaotic city, but I have created a space with room to breathe and be calm.”

Airbnb is a community marketplace for space where people can list, discover and book unique accommodations all over the globe — from FLW to Eames, its pages are pure design candy.  The concept is simple: Airbnb lets people rent out their properties to travelers, and allows them to cash in on their spare space. Founded by a pair of industrial designers and a coder, its inventory reflects its roots.

Launched for the IDSA World Congress in 2007, the design community quickly realized Airbnb was not only a great way to showcase and earn income from their properties, but also to unlock the doors to other unique spaces around the world.
