ART TAKES APART­MENT STYLING TO NEW HEIGHTS

The Courier-Mail - Property - - NEWS - SO­PHIE FOSTER

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.
