The pearl of the Orient
This is a home of toe-curling carpets and antique wooden furniture with weighty dark histories, of piratical tea chests and light-lacquered finery. Getting up with the sun is easy with wrap-around windows in the master bedroom – though it might be hard to leave the vast oasis of your comfortable bed. Pick out clothes from the Japanese-style clouded glass-fronted wardrobe and head out to the King's road, just outside your door, to discover unknown wonders in its high-end shops, or tell your travellers' stories in elite bars.
Birds of paradise
Your mysterious hosts move between Malaysia, London, and Hong Kong, trailing traces of their travels between homes in the form of beautiful art, ornaments, and their eloquent taste. At ease in their retirement, Chelsea, for them, means leisure and socialising, and getting down to the Thames in between times.
Your hosts' storied travels are told in the exquisite carved statues and framed artworks that elegantly people their home, speaking oriental myths to Chelsea luxury. Cut glass tableware on the glass-topped dining table serve guests on suede chairs in an open plan room made for entertaining.
The spacious sofas of the sitting room pay neutral complement to the vibrant coloured carpets on the varnished wood floors, as easy ecru cools alluring and outlandish pieces, from technicolour Moroccan tea sets to the bright eyes of glass tea lights.
