The Artist Residence brand has unveiled three new bedrooms at its Brighton property, which have been designed by local artists, including a room inspired by Hollywood and a ‘pharmacy of dreams’.
The brand, founded by young trailblazers Justin and Charlotte Salisbury, has teamed up with artists Fox Fisher, Charlie Anderson and Maria Rivans to create the new-look rooms.
Co-founder Charlotte has overseen the redesign, handpicking pieces from her favourite auction houses and reclamation yards to add that eclectic touch the group is renowned for.
Local artist, Fox Fisher has created a ‘Pharmacy of Dreams’ using bespoke screen print wallpaper offset with reclaimed furniture and neutral woods.
Fellow local artist, Maria Rivans has designed the second room, which sees warm, muted hues working alongside vibrant, intricate floral prints for which she is well known, taking inspiration from vintage Hollywood films.
The final room has been designed by Charlie Anderson who has exhibited all over the world, from London to LA. His room focuses on contemporary culture with loud, pop-culture collages balanced by exposed brick and weathered wooden floorboards.
“We’re excited to welcome new and familiar faces to Artist Residence – we’ve always worked with some of Brighton and the UK’s most talented artists and this project is no different,” says co-founder Justin Salisbury.
Charlotte Salisbury adds; ‘I’ve loved working alongside Fox, Maria and Charlie, they have incredible vision which has captured the eccentricity and individuality of the hotel. We’ve stayed close to our founding attitude collaborating with young talent to create three distinctive, beautiful rooms.’
Artist Residence Brighton was the first hotel from co-founders Charlotte and Justin Salisbury, which opened in 2008. Charlotte and Justin’s other hotel locations include Artist Residence Cornwall, which opened in 2010 followed by Pimlico, London in 2014.
The Set Restaurant opened within Artist Residence Brighton in March 2015 with head chefs Dan and Bonner serving modern British tasting menus in a 20-seat restaurant.
In 2016, the pair opened The Set Café, a similarly intimate venue to The Set, serving small plates inspired by the main restaurant’s frequently changing, seasonal tasting menu with wines, craft beers and cocktails.
