You Can Now Rent An Airbnb That Resembles Van Gogh’s ‘The Bedroom’ Painting
By Louise Jane Cher, 10 Feb 2016
The Art Institute of Chicago has built a full-size replica of Vincent Van Gogh’s iconic painting, ‘The Bedroom’, and you can rent it on Airbnb.
With vivid post-impressionist details of the original artwork, and haphazardly aligned furniture “reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by”, the immersive experience will surely make you feel as if you are part of the painting itself.
The space is playfully hosted by “Vincent”, who claims to charge US$10 for “no other reason than that I need to buy paint”. Booking dates will be released monthly, so stay tuned to the art institute’s Facebook page for updates on when they are available.
This was built as part of the exhibition, ‘Van Gogh’s Bedrooms’, which highlights the three paintings of his “Yellow House” bedroom, created from 1888 to 1889. It will feature approximately 36 works in total, and will run through 10 May 2016.
