Set within a listed, four-storey Regency townhouse, a chic yet unpretentious hideaway delivering home comforts with show-stopping style. Despite its obvious grandeur, it feels intimate, relaxed and refreshingly informal.
Button-back chairs covered in powder blue satinised wool are positioned just so at a coffee table neatly stacked with papers and books, by Andrew Martin, David Hicks, or from sexy New York publisher Taschen. Over there's a champagne velvet Knole sofa placed squarely before a fireplace in which modern gas flames flicker, flanked by Perspex console tables and shiny chrome urns. Off this room, through matt grey wooden doors - maybe 15ft tall - is a dining room. It's sort of muted peacock blue, with Danish G-Plan rosewood chairs at an oval table. A matching pair of giant brown and blue lights suspended over the table illuminate the scene. It's very modern with a hint of Asia and light touches of American deco.
