Spoonful of sugar
It’s not just cream cakes and coffee that make South Kensington so enticing – within a stroll of the museums and cafés, Old Brompton Road VI is refreshingly designed. Its rooms blend bright white walls and deep-pile rugs, and you’ll find a collection of arty furniture too. The paintings and prints are carefully curated and contemporary in black and white, while dramatic statuary – including chiselled cherubs and Grecian busts – glows traditionally in the Arco lamplight. And when the hour arrives for afternoon tea, choose between the sitting room’s deep white sofa or the leather club chair.
When not at home in London, your hosts find fulfilment in Shropshire. And they’re busy converting their country home into a B&B so that others can savour it too.
From the hanging Buddhas in the hallway to the sparkle of the sitting room’s grate, this airy home has been decorated with a discerning eye. The neutral tones and sweeping curtains are soothing, while the kitchen is cleverly arranged with a table for four tucked in the corner. Follow the walls of contemporary photography into the mirrored bedroom, where there’s a charcoal-suede double bed overlooked by a fruit-laden cherub, or take a tour of the area’s renowned restaurants before you settle down.
Some traffic noise can be heard from inside the home, particularly when the windows are open.
There are four flights of stairs up to the entrance, and no elevator.
