DESIGN PORN: Great Art in Ugly Rooms

We love a good Tumblr site based on a focused, simple and playful concept. We recently ran across Great Art in Ugly Rooms and had to share it with you. The concept is simple—it is a site of doctored images of "great art" placed in "ugly rooms."

The rooms are intended to be ugly, mundane, banal, or kitschy. The art is some of the best in the world. A perfect combo don't you think? Here are a few examples.

Norman Rockwell

Henri Matisse

Robert Motherwell

Jeff Koons

Richard Diebenkorn

Jean-Michel Basquiat

Francis Bacon
