Bedford Gardens will put roses in your cheeks. Magenta bursts gloriously from cushions, lamps and bowls, peeping between books and filling the downstairs cloakroom like shiny lip gloss. And between kisses of colour, you’ll find a soft, elegant home, its large rooms filled with the most desirable modern designs. You’re in one of the most sought-after locations in London, nestled between Notting Hill and Kensington and surrounded by fashionable bars, restaurants and the city’s best shops. And should you need time to meditate upon your good fortune, head to Holland Park, where serenity can be found beside deep beds of scented flowers.
Fairy lights scatter their glow across the rustic eat-in kitchen, where family dinners are given a particular cosiness by the honeycomb floor tiles and vintage-style fabrics. The sunny sitting room looks out onto a small balcony, the original fireplace and grand piano lending gravitas to the low-slung sofa and fuzzy sheepskin rug.
There’s a further large family room, with shelves of books and photos, as well as a handy study. The four bedrooms have an aura of quiet opulence, with both contemporary and antique furniture, while the master bedroom opens out onto a gorgeous roof terrace, fragrant with fresh herbs.
