Tourists in Lisbon, Portugal are now being offered the chance to stay at a fanciful Mario-themed hotel room, thanks to the efforts of one dedicated fan! The room was put together by programmer and homeowner André Farinha, who wanted to share his love for Nintendo and its classic icon with tourists and locals alike. The room is decked to the brim with a variety of Nintendo merchandise and memorabilia, including built-in gaming stations for Nintendo’s 3DS and WiiU consoles! Also included in the room are a variety of the collectible Amiibo mini-figures, murals, posters, wallpapers, and even a decorated bathroom! Though the room cost Farinha over $11,000 to furnish and customize, this fun getaway can be rented on Airbnb for the low cost of just under $40 a night!

Contemporary art space Public Functionary partnered with TOMODACHI to create a vibrantly colorful installation in…where else? The gallery bathroom. Dubbed the “Wash-i Room” (get it, wash room/washi tape?), installation artist Meepo created a dimensional, abstract design using Japanese brand mt tape that covered each wall and included designed panels inserted into a grid of mirrors. Even the soap dispenser got the washi treatment! Stop by the gallery this fall to catch an art exhibit and snap a selfie in the wash-i room (you could even win a PF t-shirt!).
