Stand back and hold your brush at arm’s length – proportion is key. With its high ceilings and split-levels, this finely drawn apartment reflects its hostess’s unique artistic style. Vividly modern with the rich splendor of the antique, each room is a cornucopia of texture, colour and light. Whether you are admiring the surreal canvases that cover these walls, sitting in bed with a cup of mint tea while reading up on symbolism or perusing Fulham’s art shops for that crucial tube of Prussian blue, a stay at New Kings Road VII will paint a memorable portrait of a perfect stay.
A painterly approach
Your hostess is a celebrated artist who splits her time between her striking London home and the sun-soaked landscape of Portugal. Along with her artistic daughter and son, she loves to colour her world with beauty and spends time restoring faded classics back to former glory.
Contours and contrasts
The open-plan design of this apartment means that light fills the space with the same creative warmth that daily inspires your hostess. The intense aroma of your morning coffee, prepared in the neatly composed kitchen, will drift upwards towards the mezzanine bedroom – the most delectable wake up call. This sun-lit space’s soothing white walls provide the ideal blank canvas on which to plan a joyful day ahead.
It will be hard to tear yourself away from here though, where many an hour can be whiled away reading, gathered around your hostess’s Turkish rug talking art and ideas or enjoying a candlelit meal at the round table tucked to one side of this delightful room. When a nightcap seems to be in order, to be mixed beneath the ornate curves of the antique Turkish mirror, you can reflect on your good fortune at finding this unique space for your London stay.
A vibrant pallete
Fulham is bursting with a number of antique shops that will be nigh-on impossible for the artistically minded not to fall in love with. After spending a morning perusing these endless delights, why not select one of the many excellent Italian restaurants found in this area – the perfect place to while away an afternoon over a bottle of smooth red. When Central London calls, it is an easy 23-minute tube ride from nearby Parsons Green or Putney Bridge.
This home is spread over two floors with no elevator.
