If you are looking to make an impression on prospective tenants and short-term holiday renters you should consider purchasing one or more original artworks for your home. Carefully selected paintings, drawings and photographs add to the appeal of your property - when someone walks in the door and when you advertise it online. Rise Art curator and senior art advisor at Tang Investments, Annelien Bruins selects three properties in London with our partner One Fine Stay and suggests suitable artworks for each space.
Butler House, Shoreditch
Home to institutions such as the Columbia Road flower market and the Ten Bells (the pub frequented by Jack the Ripper’s victims) hip and quirky Shoreditch, situated just north of Liverpool Street station, is one of the trendier areas of London. The creativity and minimalism of this neighborhood is reflected in the interior of Butler House. A choice of colorful, abstract works, such as these photographs by Laurent Baillet, complements the white floors, brick walls and understated furnishings of this utterly urban space.
This property in Chelsea - in London’s hip and high-end SW1 - is near to the exclusive shopping streets of Kings Road and Fulham Road. The interior has been put together with a purpose: the exuberant colors and the plush furnishings make for a warm and contemporary home. Multiples, such as Will Maw’s series ‘A natural history of the printing of money’, make a playful reference to the wealth in this London borough and supplement the interior design without crowding out its colors.
Trevor Square, Knightsbridge
This elegant property, with its classical furnishings and wooden floors, is based in Knightsbridge, adjacent to the exclusive boroughs of Mayfair and Park Lane. Whereas Chelsea is hip and urban, Knightsbridge is old school British. Art chosen for this chic apartment should complement the pastel palette of the walls and floors and the artworks collected over many years by its owners. A delicate and abstract drawing by Jane Pryor provides a contemporary feel that fits well into this modern, quintessentially British home.
