16 Stafford Terrace

’16 Stafford Terrace’ is inspired by it’s next door neighbour 18 Stafford Terrace, formerly the home of noted illustrator Edward Linley Sambourne, now preserved as a museum.

While the two houses share a similar layout, the interiors clearly reflect the different aesthetics of decoration done more than 100 years apart. The choice of furniture, wall paper, lighting and colours sets the two houses in two very different eras.

A noted cartoonist for Punch, the house was Linley Sambourne’s studio and salon and it became, and remains, a showcase for his talents. As with Linley Sambourne’s home the art on show at 16 Stafford Terrace is completely in tune with it’s time and the exhibition also shares the atmosphere of it’s neighbour, where art is comfortably enjoyed in a relaxed household setting. Unlike a normal art gallery, white and sterile, the focus here is on making the guests feel completely at ease with the art.

The artworks themselves speak for the artists and so no ‘artists statements’ are necessary. The setting is a comfortable, elegant yet hard working family house and the artworks have been carefully selected to be appropriate to their setting and to each rooms function.

Seen by invitation only, as our homes are, what we have is intimate, private and personal.
