Fine and dandy
Elgin Avenue is made to measure – its cool colour palette tempered by period features and sumptuous textures. Sitting sprucely on a Maida Vale street, this home is buffed and bold. Plush sofas sit beneath delicate chandeliers, and while the ceilings are tall and corniced, the coffee table is both designer and rakishly low. But before you pour a drink and settle in around at the matte dining table, you‘ll want to explore nearby Notting Hill or picturesque Little Venice.
Your French host has polished Elgin Avenue to the highest standard – smoothing its creases, while staying true to its tradition. He’s also added intriguing artwork and photography, which tell of a life well-travelled.
This is a home of chiselled charm, from the period sash windows to the twin lanterns that stand at either end of the fireplace. You might admire the grey-shaded cabinets and bold red dining stools from the comfort of the deep sofa, or take to the kitchen, with its gleaming gadgets. And when the time comes to kick off your shoes for the day, there’s the tub in the well-groomed bathroom and the creamy-hued master bedroom.
The wardrobe for the master bedroom is not directly inside the bedroom, but just a hop across the hall.
The fireplace in this home is ornamental.
