As a family business, trading for over 30 years; we're delighted to have formed a community of collectors and friends. A vibrant network of art-lovers; it's always an honour to be sent photos of our art proudly on display in our clients homes.
Over the years we've seen some beautiful interiors during our installations and home visits. It's always inspiring to see the ways art can be presented: the visual flourishes, the way works compliment a space and the bold display choices that put the finishing touch on a spectacular artwork.
In this client's living room, the magnificent wall-sculpture Rubik by Kerry Darlington is showcased to highlight its beautiful symmetry. Furniture, space and in particular, subtle use of down-lighters, combine to make this work a true feature.
In a very real way, installation completes the atmosphere of the artwork when placed in the perfect space. Notice here how the hanging vines in the Chris Chapman original echo the foliage in the wallpaper.
Another delightful touch is the way the classic Chapman frame and off-white background that coordinates perfectly with the room - then the vivid splash of gold, green and violet that contrasts brilliantly.
Discovering how our favourite pieces utterly compliment the decor of a collector's interior is incredibly rewarding and continuously reminds us of the potential and versatility of artwork. Here, the Kerry Darlington classics Celtic Twilight and Flying home pick up and reinforce the beautiful Farrow & Ball blue and aubergine backgrounds of this meticulously appointed home.
It isn't just the bricks and mortar - other accent colours picked out by accessories and prize possessions can interact in surprising ways... In this house, the exuberant animal characters on the sofa create the perfect counterpoint to the adventure of Ted and Doris playing out in the David Renshaw original behind them. Have fun experimenting with different possibilities! Much in the same way accessories can breathe new life into clothing outfits, so too can art reinvent a space.
With the unlimited creative possibilities of art, even the most distinctive and detailed decorative scheme can find a perfect compliment - just look at these gorgeous Kerry Darlington Unique Editions and how they expand the enchanted forest atmosphere of the wallpaper and toys on display.
A well chosen piece can set off even the smallest area without feeling cluttered - see how Princess and the Pea finds its perfect location.
Seeing our favourite originals in the environments they were made for - collector's homes - is an incredibly rewarding experience.
Open up your space and let in new environments and atmospheres for a change of mis-en-scene. One of my favourite things about this interior is the cosy ambience complete with wood fire and woven accessories: the Rozanne Bell original becomes almost a window overlooking the beautiful coastal landscape.
It's always immensely satisfying to see a collector establish their own favourite artist, genre or theme - this client (in Australia!) is chronicling the journey of David Renshaw's Ted and Doris with this carefully selected series. From Summer romances to raising a family; rain or shine.
Brilliant contemporary colours really pop against the clean white walls of a modern lifestyle home. Even the epitome of Victorian chic - Alice in Wonderland - looks completely at home in the distinctly 21st-century environs of this designer space.
By contrast, this interior embraces the Victorian atmosphere - by its very nature almost echoing the painting itself with the collections of cute little objects (and indeed other Kerry Darlington pieces!).
