ART TAKES APARTMENT STYLING TO NEW HEIGHTS
PROPERTY styling has hit new heights with over $200,000 worth of art put into a luxury Brisbane riverside apartment to appeal to a buyer used to such a lifestyle.
The design of the apartment at 1 Scott Street in Kangaroo Point incorporated an art-space walkway, which made the styling decision easy, said real estate agent Peter McDonald of LJ Hooker New Farm.
“At this level, money isn’t necessarily the issue,” he said.
“It would be about how the person connects with the property, the accommodation and the offer. It’s not going to be about the money. It’s about how they will feel when they walk in.”
The prestige property – which is open to offers, with no price guide placed on it – was built in 2010 and positioned across the river from the bustling Riverside Centre where the Kookaburra Queen was berthed.
Fireworks Gallery director Michael Eather ( pictured right) – who placed 15 pieces from his gallery in the space said while some of the art could be conceived as being high end, several were modest originals that simply complemented the overall space.
“By combining furniture (from Coco Republic) and art, it is lived in and comfortable.,” he said. “It’s an intelligent space. You’re going to enjoyj bi being there. I’m in the art business to provide spaces that are contemplative and mediative artwork that work for that environment.”i nment ”
Mr McDonald said there were about 15m of hanging tracks so the new owner would be able to “hang and rotate their own private collection”.collection” The Fireworks Gallery pieces were also available for purchase separately as was the furniture in the apartment, he said.
