This home's style is understated, the dark-wood floors and pale walls showing off your host's carefully chosen design pieces. The sitting room's bay window seat is upholstered in imperial purple, paired with a cool-grey sofa and stone coffee table. In the corner, the kitchen's breakfast bar sits beneath a pair of low-hanging pendant lamps, while a sweeping floor light brightens the neat dining table. There's a Juliet balcony, and the Fulham Road is just steps away, lined with up-and-coming restaurants and bars try Sophie's Grill for steak, or opt for dim sum and dancing instead.
Your host spends a lot of time in Italy and has an effortless sense of style resplendently put to work in her sophisticated London home. She also owns Margaux, a restaurant close by on Old Brompton Road, with her husband.
The master bedroom is all-white with hints of taupe in the floor-length curtains and cushioned headboard. Topiary plants decorate the sash windowsill, and the bathroom just beyond is all veined-grey marble with a generous walk-in shower. In the bright living area, you might collect your thoughts at the tulip dining table atop its designer chairs, or admire the view of the street from the front window. But with South Ken's renowned museums and department stores in the distance, you'll likely be tempted outside before settling too long.
