FRANCIS Bacon artwork sold for a record £89.6 million will be the centrepiece of a newly redecorated guest bedroom.
The Bacon triptych will be the basis of a feature wall above a guest bed accessorised by sequinned throw pillows in a three bedroom Loughborough home.
Purchaser Emma Bradford described the pictures as “something to look at”.
She continued: Now our Jason’s moved out weve put all his rubbish in the loft and repainted in Jasmine Sorbet, with flock wallpaper in a very strong raspberry coulis to anchor the room.
Unfortunately on the opposite wall, where it was all blank, you could see the marks from where he used to have his telly so we needed something to cover those up.
The triptych joins a tall vase with long silver sticks in and a pair of Laura Ashley tealight holders, an unwanted gift from last Christmas, in the room which Bradford wants to look like a boutique hotel but more homely.
She admitted: I didnt know there were three of them we never did triptychs in art at school and there isnt actually room, so the one on the rights in the garage for the time being.
Ive slotted it in next to that Van Gogh sunflower painting which clashed horribly with the lounge curtains.
