If it were possible to leap into the pages of an interiors monthly, this is about where you’d land. An apartment of quirky touches and thoughtful, original elegance, it’s small wonder Livingetc magazine has swooped in for a cover feature. But King Henry’s Road IV is no mere show home. Beyond the muted palette, the swathes of reclaimed wood and the savvy vintage lighting, every item has a story to tell. You’ve a kitchen tap fashioned from old plumbers’ pipes and cushions that were once linen sacks found in France. In fact, if Primrose Hill wasn’t so tempting, there would be little to stop you pouring over every single detail.
An interiors photographer, your host knows that beauty is more than a question of lighting and exposure. He and his camera have travelled far and wide – see the snaps of Sri Lanka and Kerala around the apartment for the proof.
Flick past Primrose Hill’s flower shops and booksellers and let your attention rest in this home. If the gentle letterbox tiles and exposed beams are deserving of a centrefold, then the vintage finds are as characterful as the classifieds. Settle into a slouchy chair and page through a periodical, or better yet, look on the autographed Michael Caine print, the verdant terrariums or the kitchen cabinets – the latter reclaimed from old floorboards and enlivened with chalk paint.
And by the time you’ve seen the bedrooms’ monochrome prints, aged trunks and barrels doubling as bedside tables, you’ll want to give your imagination a well-deserved rest under the sumptuous beds’ covers.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
This home is close to a train line, and so some noise from this can be heard from the sitting room. The bedrooms are on the other side of the home so should be quiet.
