Natural selection Steer your vessel into the crystal clear waters and stumble on this island paradise of an apartment. Exotic species greet you at every turn, like the statuesque ponytail palm and delicate orchids in the living room. No need for a degree in botany to enjoy this lush home, but if in the name of science you do set out to explore the neighbourhood, keep your eyes peeled for intriguing specimens. Chelsea's art galleries and boutiques are chock full of treasures any naturalist will appreciate. Paradise found The backers of your expedition are a pair of obsessive travellers who are inspired by all things design. Both are athletic, adapting their bodies as runners and boxers, among other pursuits. The husband was a competitive skier (you'll note the crossed skis above the couch in the living room), and the wife is a student of interior design and architecture. HMS Beagle Dock your ship awhile and set out on an adventure to catalogue the strange flora and fauna which inhabit the home. Fans of coral and enamel swordfish are on display in this little pocket Eden, and potted plants add flourishes of greenery. Take a breath of fresh air out on the patio, which has café-type seating for two and is a fantastic place to watch for backyard wildlife. If your curiosity is piqued, climb the black wrought iron staircase into the soaring canopy of the home. On the wall beside it, an edgy spray-painted mural sketches out the couple's natural history. Pen your theories on the mysteries of life in the office at the top of the stairs, which is flooded with light. Large-leaf plants in the bedroom accent the four poster bed, giving the room a tropical vibe so magical that you'll almost feel the warm breezes of discovery in your dreams.
