Gugu Mbatha-Raw shares his trick for hanging art in your home

You might recognize Gugu Mbatha-Raw from Disney+ Loki Where The morning show – but she’s also poised to become a force in the design industry. Despite her place at the top of Hollywood, Gugu has ventured into a new, somewhat more personal role as an artist – focusing particularly on painting.

During the lockdown, her portrayals of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor were called a ‘viral sensation’ – and she has since shared other works by Chadwick Boseman, Desmond Tutu and Kevin Hart (a co-star in her latest film, Lift).

Her rise in the design industry means she’s quickly becoming a master of decorating with art – and it looks like Soho House agrees. To celebrate their new Westbourne Grove Studio in London, Gugu shared tips on decorating with art at home, and naturally, we took notice. And the top of the agenda? Use art to change the tone of your home all year round.
