Soft fabrics layer tones of cream, taupe and tulip, while the polka-dot jugs and Windsor chairs are just as quaint. And when you do feel the tug of the great outdoors, you’ve the best of both worlds – the private whitewashed garden is all flourishing flowerpots and pretty patio furniture, and you’re on the border between Chelsea and Fulham, with glitzy King’s Road one side and historic Brompton Cemetery the other.

She divides her time between this London refuge and the Sussex countryside, where her extended family lives.

The sitting room’s sweet blend of French and English styles is intriguing and inviting, as are the paintings and porcelain that decorate each of the bright bedrooms.

But not before you’ve poured a pitcher of something sparkling in the cute and amply equipped kitchen.
