The way in which we travel and explore new cultures and geographical locations is quickly changing. Instead of calling up our travel agents and booking a flight and hotel stay with a popular and reputable chain, we may grab a ride with a group of strangers looking for a rideshare and stay in someone’s spare room through Couchsurfing. The Internet has made different types of travel extremely accessible, from discount flights on travel search engines to accommodation options other than the traditional hotel.

Some people still choose to stay at a 5-star all-inclusive resort or a Hilton Hotel, while others prefer to create a home away from home experience in a house or apartment. But who says our temporary home in a new city needs to resemble the basement bachelor apartment you currently share with your sister and her boyfriend? Enter Airbnb, the website that allows you to take a walk on someone else’s Berber rug for a small price… or if you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, why not visit James Franco’s stylish space?

No, we aren’t actually inviting you to live with Mr. Franco. Instead, Airbnb has launched a campaign entitled “Hello LA,” a four-day event that invites celebrities to design create space that depict their unique personality and artistic vision.

Franco, Anjelica Huston, Moby, Molly Sims, and Lake Bell each curated a freestanding Airbnb pop-up location with the help of manufacturer Kithaus.

Franco’s curated space is at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Although he’s too busy to host in his own “home”, the Station-to-Station event will feature music from L.A’s Ariel Pink.

Huston is hosting a public event, inviting everyone interested to come and visit her creation. However, the public will be weaned out quickly to accommodate an invite-only farm-to-table dinner created by notable local chefs and mixologists.

Moby is hosting an event at the Viper Room, a Daft Punk v LCD Soundsystem Silent Disco. It is called a Silent Disco because those in attendance will each wear their own set of headphones to experience the music. Moby’s curated pop-up will be across from the venue.

Bell and her mother, Robin, are personally offering tours of their pop-up located in the Arts District in downtown L.A on Sunday, while Sims is hosting an Old Hollywood Lawn Party on Monday with games, performances, photo booths, and giveaways at the Park at the Grove.
