Styling with Art: Bright Colours by Tiffany Grant-Riley

Posted in Out of the Studio by Charlotte Broomfield on 06th May 2014

Tiffany Grant-Riley is a props stylist, creative director and jilted house buyer now renting for her sins in the beautiful town of Rochester. That’s Kent, not New York, she tells me. In this week's styling with art Tiff takes 'Slobber City' by Super Future Kid and uses it to create a children's workshop style piece and we love it.

Slobber City
Super Future Kid

'Super Future Kid’s ‘Slobber Song’ is without doubt a statement piece. It’s playful, off-the-wall (if you’ll excuse the pun) and a real talking point. If it made a sound, it’d be a Basement Jaxx classic with just as much energy-perfect for a workspace or studio. Make it the focal point of the room set against a crisp, white wall. I paired it with updated design classics, objects with clean lines and block primary colours with a subtle nod towards the 80s. I’ve anchored the colour way in blue to compliment the night sky but also picked out the candy colours and added a sweet “pop” with the Flamingo cushion by Amy Sia which looks like it was made for this piece. I think it’s a fun look which, just like the art itself, doesn’t take itself too seriously.' - Tiff
