If you’ve ever stumbled across the stunning decor of boutique hotel Artist Residence on Instagram & wanted to buy it, now you can. WGSN’s Laura Welch reports
Have you ever stayed in a hotel so epic you wanted to take a piece of it with you?
Now, I’m not talking about the fancy Aesop shower gel and shampoo or the obligatory sewing kit – I mean the Vintage Roberts radio placed on the bedside table or a fun piece of art hung beautifully in the New York inspired hotel room.
Well an eccentric trio of independent boutique hotels known as Artist Residence are now allowing you to do just that!
They’ve curated an Instagram shop section on their wonderful website, which is full of accessories/ art and even furniture that is featured in their hotels – I mean who doesn’t want a giant neon question mark hanging above their toilet? Exactly.
Each hotel has been carefully decorated and styled for their destination, so Brighton being the biggest of the three, offers 23 wonderful, individual rooms, with a very cool and young vibe, London which has been described as eclectic luxury has just 10 rooms and then tucked away in Penzance West Cornwall is a historic Georgian fun and friendly hotel with 13 bedrooms and 4 bright and colourful apartments.
Not only do Artist Residence offer unique hotel rooms (for a very reasonable price and a free standing bath tub) they also have a restaurant and cocktail cellar in Clarendon central London, which is decked out in the same quirky interior – think lots of bare brick walls, exciting and modern lights and a cool New York warehouse kind of vibe – oh and the cocktails are to die for.
Owners Justin and Charlie were constantly getting asked by their customers where they buy their cool stuff from and wanted to make it easy for everyone by opening up an online shop so customers can buy their very own art from up and coming artists or vintage style wine racks which have been brought from quirky independent suppliers who Justin and Charlie have come to know over the years.
