The Art Institute of Chicago has created a life-size replica of Van Gogh’s famous bedroom at his home in Arles, France, which he had immortalized in his iconic painting called Bedroom. The room is a faithful reproduction of the 1888 painting by the master artist featuring simple interior and bright colors, as it appears in the original, complete with thick brush strokes. The room is outfitted with the same furniture, the same bedspread and the same haphazard arrangement of paintings. The best part is that the room is actually available for rent through AirBnb at just $10/night.

The unusual accommodation was created in celebration of an upcoming exhibition ‘Van Gogh’s Bedrooms’, by the Art Institute of Chicago which will feature approximately 36 works by the artist, including paintings, drawings, and illustrated letters, as well as a selection of books and other ephemera that Van Gogh owned.
