France Van Gogh's Bedroom

It&rsquos the last place you might have imagined listed in Airbnb. But now you could choose to stay in Van Gogh&rsquos Bedroom in Arles, France. Almost. The Art Institute of Chicago has recreated the room and put it up for rent on Airbnb for just $10. &ldquoThis room will make you feel like you&rsquore living in a painting,&rdquo the ad on Airbnb says. &ldquoIt&rsquos decorated in a Post-Impressionist style, reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by. Its furniture, bright colors, and artwork will give you the experience of a lifetime.&rdquo The Institute is hosting an exhibition, Van Gogh&rsquos Bedrooms, from February 14 through May 10, which focusses on three paintings Van Gogh created of the room in Arles between 1888 and 1889. As expected, availability is tight for the Airbnb room, so the museum is taking bookings in blocks that it&rsquos announcing via Twitter and Facebook. There&rsquos also a to-scale replica of the bedroom within the exhibition.
