Among the rich skies and silvery clouds of Kensington High Street, one home brings a rosy flush to the chalkiest cheeks. A penthouse not short on style, Hornton Court may have the most spirited palette this side of Notting Hill Carnival. No blue is too bold and no pink too piquant for its interiors, whose shimmering style combines the vintage with the contemporary. Whether you lie in the magnolia master bedroom, indulge in the teal bathroom or turn to the chic wooden kitchen, be sure not to miss the refined colours of Kensington’s boutiques, galleries and museums.

The mustard sofa is particularly dazzling, while the artwork and prints are at once exotic and warmly familiar.
