In this wildly cool home we can offer you a glimpse of the future. And it’s looking ever so bright – white gloss and alabaster offset by juicy splashes of pigment, luscious art and curvaceous furniture. There’s no need for a hover car as Kensington Gardens is a street away, and you’re also right next to the museum district. Catch your fashion season early in nearby Knightsbridge, then appreciate the latest culinary techniques in the mashup of past and present that is Heston Blumenthal’s Dinner. Indeed, who needs a time machine when you’re exactly where you want to be?
Your host is a collector of photography who spends much of his time in London’s top galleries. He chose Cornwall Gardens VII for its close proximity to the museums and Kensington’s elegant garden squares.
The sitting room is dominated by a London triptych commissioned by your host, while glassware gleams its jewel-like hues from the abstract bookcase. The sofa is as pure as snow and the marble dining table is a contemporary take on Saarinen’s iconic 1960s design.
And there’s an organic vibe to the kitchen, which has been equipped with the very latest appliances, while both bedrooms have their own en suite. Come the morning, step out across the emerald courtyard that connects the kitchen to the master bedroom - no soggy grass here, instead evergreen AstroTurf.
