Let’s all go travelling! From the comfort of your own home, of course. We’ve launched 18 wallpapers of our favourite City and Villa Collection homes to brighten up your conference calls, it’s part of our new movement #travelfromhome!
St. Barts - We all dream of being transported to June where you can take a conference call from this stunning, sun-soaked deck looking out at St. Barts lush landscape - glass of rosé in hand, of course.
New York - Upgrade your pad for Jane Street Townhouse II in the West Village. The home is imaginatively designed by Anouska Hempel, the designer behind iconic London hotels The Franklin and Blakes, with sleek interiors composed of polished wood, velvets, marble and mirrors, reminiscent of the Grand Manner aesthetic that Anouska has become best known for. Now you can really wow your team.
London - Spend your conference call imagining your base is Hyde Park Gate II - a traditionally English flat in the heart of Kensington, complete with gold embellishments, bright red walls and period antiques.
Sydney - We’re dreaming of somewhere truly far flung. What better place to virtually catch up with your extended family than poolside at this heavenly Aussie enclave of Clontarf Villa?
Rome - Enjoy views of St. Peter’s and the old town from the terrace of Vicolo Orbitelli, which are sure to inspire awe from faraway friends. Take a call or two in the open air and make a note to head to Italy in the future.
Paris - Embrace traditional Parisian opulence at Rue Quincampoix - a 17th century home that was built at the beginning of the reign of Louis XIV and is outfitted to transport guests to a different era. While you can’t make it to The Louvre, surround yourself with museum-worthy artwork, antiques, renaissance pieces and ancient objects from around the world.
Tulum - Imagine yourself hanging from this tropical hammock on Casa Tepui's roof top, surrounded by the lush jungle landscape of Riviera Maya, to get through your Wednesday workday slump.
Florence - Via della Chiesa brings everything we dream about Italy to the forefront. This sunny home is certain to brighten up your Monday meeting, or double as a perfect background to enjoy a virtual glass of wine with friends.
Rome - Sip your morning espresso from Piazza Mattei while you go through the agenda from this Eternal City apartment, where traditionally opulent Italian ceilings contrast with modern art and furnishings for a stunningly designed backdrop.
