Words, words, words
If you like a tale with a twist, this one will hold you enthralled. Meet Kenilworth Road, a cute terrace house miles from any hustle or bustle. Or is it? With Oxford Street a mere twenty minutes away, this is very much a story of London town. And it couldn’t be better written. The ceilings are lofty, the palette a heartwarming pink and we love the retro wooden telly better than words can tell. So drop your shopping bags, browse the bookshelves and breathe deep the garden air. Calm in the city? It doesn’t have to be a closed book.

So we’ve set the scene, but what of the main action? Start in the sitting room, walled with books, hung with paintings and aglow with soft light. The vibrant pinks speak of a vivid imagination, while the kitchen’s peppermint green is highly mouthwatering.

With paintings to see, an old-school TV to watch and all the cafes and bars of Queen’s Park to explore, you’ll be yearning for bedtime and a good book.
