Robert Burns Turns His Brighton Residence into the Sistine Chapel

Robert Burns is not your average 63-year-old retired decorator. After being inspired by the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Burns decided to turn his entire house into one large Renaissance masterpiece.

Although Robert Burns has never seen the inside of the Sistine Chapel with his own eyes, his knowledge of the Italian Renaissance has proved successful with his detailed artwork. After decorating the interior of a number of different homes over the years with boring block colors, Burns needed something a bit more stimulating. He bought a book on Renaissance artwork at a street sale and has not looked back since. Now, Burns' home is covered from head to foot in classic paintings, so much so that he is running out of room. Perhaps the neighbors might enjoy a Michelangelo makeover.
