Van Gogh’s Bedroom Has Been Re-Created And You Can Sleep In It

Imagine if one of your pieces of art came to life. More than just recreating a scene, it actually existing. As a thing for people to enjoy. As BuzzFeed report, if Van Gough was about, he’d be experiencing the curiosity of it all now!

It’s the most famous bedroom in art history — and soon you’ll be able to step inside the painting and sleep in it yourself.

“This room will make you feel like you’re living in a painting. It’s decorated in post-impressionist style, reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by,” the Airbnb listing reads.

It only costs $10 a night to stay in the room, so you can bet people are going to sell their left ears to secure it. (Sorry.)

The room can be booked here for the duration of the Van Gogh exhibition, which runs from Feb. 14 to May 10.

Reckon you could produce something that is worthy of full recreation? If you do, take a look through our Design and Visual Arts courses here at The Sheffield College today and see if you can out-create Van Gough!
