‘Room with a View’ is a relaxed & sociable way to view art in a town famous for its Georgian architecture.
Mary-Ann Astor & Maddie Van Aitch are the mother/daughter collaboration behind VAN ASTOR, fine art photography inspired by ‘greatness’. The unconventional duo live in a three storey, 5 bedroom mid-18th century period townhouse in the centre of Stamford, Lincolnshire located about one hour from London.
The Inspiration for their Photography is Greatness
Van Astor is the home of chic and unique art photographs suitable for both commercial and residential interiors. Each limited-edition image is created in their Georgian home studio. The inspiration for their art comes from some of the worlds greatest achievers ranging from Winston Churchill to Sophia Loren to the work of the New York Innocence Project. Each piece is produced to fine arts standards using leading archival paper and finished using the display options favored by museums and galleries globally. With collective foundations in interior design and fine art the pair rooted in positive thinking and artistic expression choose photographs of their medium for self-expression. The monochromatic gallery space, it’s black white and gold interior beautifully showcases the art. A subset of the full collection is available for view on the website.
Stay in the Home and Experience the Art
Blending the past with present, VAN ASTOR selected Airbnb as their booking platform, thereby taking a centuries-old concept of ‘artist in residence’ and reversed it by becoming the hosts and inviting guests to stay and explore one of the UK’s finest examples of Georgian architecture.
Ready to welcome you is a spacious room in a ‘Chanel No.5 ‘inspired colour scheme with king-sized bed + en-suite, decorated with fresh flowers, fluffy towels, crisp white linen and complimentary toiletries, your own private TV room with tea & coffee making facilities during your stay. Read the morning papers while you enjoy a continental breakfast overlooking the garden. Enjoy a short stroll through the Georgian town to the Van Astor Gallery for a Private View of the latest collection complete with champagne, strawberries and sandwiches. Also offered is a relaxed two-course meal with the artists over wine.
