Airbnb Homes Around The World (PHOTOS)

The Cooper-Hewitt museum celebrates National Design Week in New York, which pays homage to the world of home design, and we're taking it one step further. We turned to Airbnb, the travel site through which people from around the world put up their homes for rental to travelers looking for lodging in specific cities, and we've rounded up some of the most fantastic spaces by some of the most design-savvy people.

We love just scrolling through Airbnb's user-uploaded photos of interiors to get a glimpse into how other people like us live and how they decorate their own private spaces. It's an inspiring reminder that each person's home is their own sanctuary and that design is what makes your home comfortable to be in for yourself.
