Each year, The Gladstone Hotel empties its rooms to make way for artists and designers alike to come in and transform each space. The event is entitled Come Up To My Room and it has quickly become one of my favourite yearly traditions. From deep and meaningful installations to silly, quirky and interactive displays it’s the perfect way to spend a thoughtful Sunday. Last weekend, I headed over to the west end of the city to take a look at what was in store and I couldn’t have been more impressed. Here’s just a glimpse of a few fantastic pieces that took over each surface of the hotel this year.
