Come Tour the Room James Franco Designed for Airbnb

New, 1 comment

Never ones to shy away from high design or a good marketing gimmick, the good folks at online room-rental hotspot Airbnb recruited L.A.-based celebrities to create pop-up suites in some of the city's chicest locales—all in an attempt to stir up some buzz over the website's fledgling presence in the City of Angels. Included in the recruits: actor James Franco, actress Anjelica Huston, and decorating-savvy supermodel Molly Sims. They've all devised pretty gorgeous spreads, though Franco's (above) is easily the strangest. What's up his sleeve? Oh, you know, a pre-fab "mausoleum" in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, complete with, per the L.A. Times, a "custom paint-by-numbers artwork," cards printed with quotes from famous authors, and the pièce de résistance, "YOLO" written in large lettering. Find another shot of Franco's space below, then head to Domaine for the full set of celebrity creations.
