16 Stafford Terrace’ is inspired by it’s next door neighbour 18 Stafford Terrace, formerly the home of noted illustrator Edward Linley Sambourne, now preserved as a museum. While the two houses share a similar layout, the interiors clearly reflect the different aesthetics of decoration done more than 100 years apart. As with Linley Sambourne’s home the Korean contemporary art on show at 16 Stafford Terrace is completely in tune with it’s time and the exhibition also shares the atmosphere of it’s neighbour, where art is comfortably enjoyed in a relaxed household setting. Unlike a normal art gallery, white and sterile, the focus here is on making the guests feel completely at ease with the art.
