Design Inspiration From Artist Residence

Posted on Mar 12, 2015 by

Artist Residence are a small but perfectly formed hotel company with locations in London, Cornwall and Brighton. Their unique concept of a ‘bespoke’ hotel aims to offer a space that feels comforting and intimate whilst you are away from home. Each location reflects its surroundings, whether its through the industrial interior of the inviting bar in London or the sun-bleached wooden furniture in their Cornish getaway. What unites the Artist Residence hotels is their eclectic, individual design. We found plenty of inspiration whilst admiring the London location and have picked out our favourite touches that can easily be incorporated into your own home.

Located in Pimlico, interiors at Artist Residence London combine bohemian modern and vintage elements, with exposed brick walls, cosy ethnic throws and enamel factory lights.

After a busy day exploring London, visitors can relax in the Lounge and soak up the atmosphere. Far from feeling mass produced or sterile, the Lounge incorporates heritage features and industrial decor, with exposed brick walls and pendant lights softened by plush velvet sofas and a quirky vintage style fairground sign.

This bedroom strikes a perfect chord between quirky and chic. We love the contrast of parquet flooring against an exposed brick fireplace, and that metal four poster bedframe really caught our attention!

In the bathroom, wooden panels on the walls evoke a modern rustic look. A muted colour palette, complemented by exposed brickwork, with fresh white robes and traditional fittings, makes this an inviting retreat after a long day sightseeing and shopping.

Down in the basement, the bar has a cool industrial look with enamel factory lights and booths in panelled wood. A monochrome and stormy grey colour palette with industrial luxe copper tube lighting sets the scene perfectly for a few after-dinner cocktails.

Artist Residence London take pride in their restaurant experience being focused around the kitchen, with the chefs taking centre stage. The 64 degrees restaurant invites guests to dine around the pass and watch the chefs cook up a storm.

Feeling inspired by the modern rustic design in Artist Residence? Well, here are a few tips for channeling the look at home.

These fairground lights from Argent and Sable can be made to order and are a really fun vintage inspired addition to any room. Choose your own message from £215 a letter. Be inspired by the Artist Residence and hang yours against an exposed brick wall if you have one.

Channel a reclaimed look in your bedroom in an unexpected way. We love this reclaimed parquet flooring, available from The Reclaimed Flooring Co. The chevron pattern is on-trend and the wood has a beautifully warm colour.

Traditional fixtures and fittings add real character to even the smallest room in the house. If you want to bring some classic character to your bathroom, consider a customisable Chadder and Co cistern. You might remember we featured this one in Warehouse Home.

Get creative with wall mirrors and use them as a decorative feature. This hanging mirror from John Lewis is great on its own, or hang 3 or 4 in a group for a stylish statement.
