A world of white
Like waking up on a winter’s morning to the expanse of a snow-covered world, arriving at Portland Place IV will bring colour to your cheeks and a smile to your face. On sunny days rays fall across the spread of the soft double bed and glint from the mirrored bedside cabinets, just one way that a stay here will be touched with beauty. A toast is in order, so pour two icy glasses of vodka and open some caviar brought from Prince Charles’s favourite local delicatessen, Jeroboams – that’s how to celebrate your stay in this joyous London hideaway.
Your international hostess has enjoyed spells in Russia and America, but has finally selected London as the place to put down her roots. Her astute financial mind and love of natural beauty are neatly entwined in this home – a place of melting prettiness and well-wrought luxury.
As you unpack in these satisfyingly compact and ordered rooms, life will take on the gentleness of the shifting seasons. After a day of crunching leaves underfoot in the fresh air of Holland Park, sit ensconced in the soft pastels of the sitting room. The slate-grey kitchen is the ideal spot for rustling up a warming supper, after which you can select a title from the colourful spines aligned on the bookcases and move across shining conker-brown floorboards onto sumptuous cream carpets – the snowy pathway leads straight towards bed.
