Project: Plum + Spilt Milk
Plum + Spilt Milk is a destination restaurant, celebrated for the quality of its seasonal British dishes and set in the heart of one of the finest luxury boutique hotels in London, the Great Northern Hotel. Since coming on board in 2015 as one of our most prestigious hospitality clients, we have been delighted to work closely with the hotel owner and CEO to build a diverse collection of bespoke art throughout the hotel and restaurant.
ARTIQ art consultant Katie Terres procured a diverse selection of original art in different mediums, depicting scenes from small abstract landscapes and portraits to maritime scenes and still life paintings selected to bring warmth and texture to the room. The works are set within a ‘Salon Hang’, an engaging trend of placing several pictures alongside and above one another to create an impression with high-visual impact. Katie worked alongside the ARTIQ installation team to expertly reframe each individual work to compliment the aesthetic.
The collection provides a bespoke focal point for the stunning restaurant design and reflects a sense of travel and nostalgia, suggesting a haul gathered one item at a time on far-flung travels. ARTIQ also worked alongside the hotel owner to commission an original painting which depicts a friend as a soldier and provides a personal and touching portrait at the heart of the collection.
