Sign of the times
The dip and swirl of light, the gentle curve of an arched ceiling, the softest touch of linen upon wood – you’ll simply adore Clifton Gardens Studio. This ethereal studio is as petal-perfect as a fresh rose, and with its expansive views, you’ll feel as though you’re drifting in mid-air. And outside, you'll find yourself in a part of Maida Vale known as Little Venice for its network of serene canals and tall houses. So take your notebook out into the sunshine and turn to a fresh page. This home is pure poetry.
Your hostess is originally from Florence, and her Italian heritage drew her to Little Venice. She’s a calligrapher, and you’ll see evidence of her work for some of fashion’s most desirable brands scattered all around her home.
The main room is an exquisite distilment of your hostess’ artistic sensibilities. Designer furniture sits in tranquil still life upon the canvas of a pale blue wooden floor, surrounded by white walls and a dreamily high ceiling. The kitchen is brand new and fully equipped, while the dining table flutters with three ghost chairs.
Then it’s through the arch to the sleeping area, where you’ll find a kingsized bed awaiting you, swathed in our crisp linen. The bathroom contains a handy dressing space, fluffy white towels and a deep roll topped bath in which to luxuriate.
There is no dishwasher in this home.
This cosy studio is perfect for adults and babies, but is unfortunately unsuitable for children and toddlers.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
There will be scaffolding on the exterior of the building, while it is being repainted, from the beginning of June onward. Working hours will be Monday - Friday from 8am - 6pm and Saturdays 8am - 1pm. However, this disruption should be minimal.
