The London base of your Irish host, Conduit Mews is a modern home with vintage touches. The sitting room has high, white-painted ceilings with rows of built-in lights, and a worn leather sofa in front of a wooden coffee table at one of the room, beside the compact but well-appointed kitchen area, and there's a rectangular dining table at the other end, beside a sliding partition wall and a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed, past which is the ensuite bathroom, and (like the other two bedrooms) has a wrought-iron candelabrum light-fitting and black-and-white photos on the walls. Down the hall is the second bedroom, where there's a wood-framed double bed, and the final bedroom has two single beds. The bathroom is lined with mirrors and has blue mosaic tiles around the bath.
