Weekend Life.....Artist Residence Hotel, Pimlico, London

Artist Residence, Pimlico, London, November 2014. 

For our editorial shoot Follow The Blue Line* we shot at the gorgeous new Artist Residence Hotel in Pimlico, London. The third boutique hotel run by talented young entrepreneurs Charlie Newey and Justin Salisbury (the other Artist Residence hotels are in Brighton and Cornwall), all of our team loved the beautiful decor in the hotel (I wanted to take home the plush red velvet couch and retro game in the hotel lounge area!) and especially the suite we shot in, The Grand Suite. The staff were brilliant and I heard only positive comments from guests who were checking out as we were bringing all the clothes in (in the pouring rain!). One businessman commented that his room was so much nicer than the anonymous hotel rooms he usually stays in.
