As a blogger one receives masses of press releases, most of which prompt you to hit delete before even opening. Once in awhile though something intrigues me and pulls me in -this happened recently when someone from the Purdy Hicks Gallery contacted me about the artist Pierre Bergian who currently has an exhibit in their London space.World of Interiors" magazine painted. It's no surprise his work is so intriguing to me as he studied art history and archaeology.
Pierre's favorite thing about his house is the amount of windows -light is always important to an artist. The living room has a beautiful skylight with stained glass laylight and overlooks the rear garden. New Replacement Windows, perhaps? I wonder if the fireplaces work?
Pierre's wife, Angele Boddaer, is also an art historian and works as a muralist and restorer of wall art. Don't you just want to be friends with this fascinating couple?
The spare use of strong color is found throughout the house. Why be afraid of color when you know how to use it? Restraint is key.
Purdy Hicks Gallery in London, how I wish I could visit! If you find yourself in London, stop in and tell them ArchitectDesign sent you!
The Purdy Hicks Gallery is located at 65 Hopton Street in Bankside. All images in post are courtesy of the artist.
