Rent a Livable Model of Van Gogh's 'Bedroom' on Airbnb

From igloos to Netflix and Chill, Airbnb fans have an awesomely quirky variety of accommodation options to choose from these days. And starting Sunday, art geeks can live out their Van Gogh fantasies via Airbnb through a new effort by Leo Burnett.
The Art Institute of Chicago’s latest exhibit, opening Feb. 14, brings together all three versions of Van Gogh’s “The Bedroom” for the first time in North America. To commemorate the exhibit, Burnett in Chicago worked with the museum (and media agency Spark) to build a full-scale, livable model of the work in a historical downtown Chicago building.
“We thought the best way to help people understand Van Gogh’s life was to invite them to spend a night in this room,” said Burnett associate creative director Pete Lefebvre. “What better way to give people a glimpse into his mind than to create a truly immersive, one-of-a-kind experience like this?”
At just $10 a night, including two tickets to the exhibition, it’s a bargain. It’s available through May 10.

Airbnb spreads the love in 2015 with ‘pay it forward’

Airbnb will gift 100,000 customers with $10 as part of a campaign in which it asks people to use the money in a “unique act of kindness,” with the aim of inspiring others to join in and “pay it forward” and connect strangers — for example, to plant seeds or flowers in the community garden or buy supplies for local community centers or help feed those in need.
It’s asking people to get involved and share their experience on Twitter to create an ‘ongoing initiative.’ It will showcase people’s efforts on a dedicated micro-site airbnb.cm/one-less-stranger.
“For Airbnb, hospitality is personal and we are committed to spreading a sense of belonging far and wide. What better way to showcase that than by inviting our global community to extend a gesture of hospitality to a complete stranger? Today, we asked our passionate and wildly creative community to see what they will do, and watch how they inspire others to pay-it-forward with #OneLessStranger.”
