Here's a home that will soothe you like the sweetest balm. Recently refurbished, this airy, uncluttered period apartment is elegant and inviting. Tucked away in one of Kensington's most peaceful pockets, you won't be troubled by the big smoke's roar. But should you wish to play fast and loose, then dive into the slipstream you can find yourself in the thick of things in no time. The museums, the shops, bars and restaurants of Kensington High Street, the blessed turf of Holland Park all are wonderfully close at hand.
Born in Hungary and raised in Germany, your hosts are sisters, and they've worked in finance and fashion.
This is a home that needs little in the way of adornment - its lovely proportions very much speak for themselves. The sitting room takes its inspiration from the colours of the earth sand, hay and porcelain whisper good taste, and the balcony doors open to flood the room with light. There's a marshmallowy squidge to the enormous sofa, and next door, the eclectic kitchen's colourful and fun. You've two airy double bedrooms, both quietly chic with their honeyed wood floors and crisp, snowy bed linen, and the contemporary bathroom is filled with The White Company toiletries and our fluffy towels.
