Our Story

  1. Charlie Anderson Artist Room at Artist Residence Brighton Artist Residence Brighton, boutique hotel on Brighton seafront Artist Residence Brighton, West Pier

    Where it all began...

    When co-founder Justin dropped out of uni to help out with the family B&B on Brighton seafront, he unexpectedly caught the hospitality bug, and set out to improve the business with very little budget. Inspired by the Brighton art scene, he sent out an ad for artists to decorate rooms in return for board. Hundreds of artists soon descended on the place decorating the walls, floors & ceilings with unique murals...and so, Artist Residence was born.

  2. Seaside at Artist Residence Cornwall, boutique hotel in Penzance

    From one seaside town to another...

    Joined by then girlfriend (now wife) Charlie, the pair set about making the concept and hotel a successful business. Three years later, the duo set their sights on their next project, a manor house in the seaside town of Penzance in West Cornwall...

  3. The Loft Bathroom at Artist Residence London

    To the big smoke!

    ...and after 4 years, a lot of hard work & lessons learnt, they were able to take on an old pub in Pimlico, London. Here, Justin & Charlie added to the art concept with a unique & eccentric design style, and added cafe bar spaces to each location for locals and guests alike.
