One often reads of that combination of avant garde and eclecticism that’s truly and uniquely British, but rarely is it so well executed as here at Anselm Road. This is a much-loved family home that combines flair and style with a healthy appreciation for the absurd. From the witty leather sofa to the pop art on the walls, Anselm Road is like the Last Night of the Proms – colourful, patriotic, and absolutely bonkers.
Our hostess is a travel writer with past history as a designer, our host, an eleven year old with the coolest bedroom of anyone we know. This pair have created a home in a million, comfy, cosy, and brimful with good cheer. You’ll be sorry to have missed them, but very glad at what they’ve left behind...
The Sex Pistols poster in the sitting room says it all; here’s a home with a very British sense of humour. Head outside to play in your own private garden, or, if it gets a bit nippy (and we’re not talking about the critters on top of the TV) retreat to the sitting room and have a gander at the hostess’ glorious collection of objects d’art. The glittering mirrored wall gives the kitchen its kitsch, and, once the food’s ready, the dining table comfortably seats six. The Last Supper may be hanging on the wall next to you. But with surroundings this much fun, your meal will surely be the first of many…
Upstairs, you’ll discover that there’s something decidedly fishy going on in the host’s bedroom - we’re not talking Finding Nemo so much as full on Jaws. For the grownups, there are two more double bedrooms, clad with a mix of art that ranges from hand-stitched wall hangings to elderly prints to an incredibly sexy Lempicka. The bouncy double beds are decked out in our crisp white linen, the two bathrooms brimful of our delicious White Company toiletries.
Residential, but a hop skip and a jump from the busy streets of Kensington and Chelsea, Anselm Road is the perfect choice for those who want to experience a bit of swinging London and then nip home to some much-needed peace and quiet. The Kings Road, with its many restaurants and boutiques, is within easy walking distance, and if the centre of the city is calling, you can be there in less than half an hour. In the meantime, there’s plenty to do closer to home. From the V&A museum to the exhibitions at Earls Court, to the green spaces of Normand Park, here’s a place that’s proud to be British.
