Pop and sizzle
Painted in shades of paprika, cardamom and vanilla, Garway Road is a home to get your juices flowing. For who would not be tempted by these delicious rooms, with their neat, pretty furniture, their textiles and artwork from lands far away? Westbourne Grove is just around the corner, with a social scene that lasts from brunch until way past your bedtime. Amble down to Portobello Road Antiques Market for Ceylon sapphires and Madagascan rubies, or picnic upon the emerald lawns of Kensington Gardens. From here it’s a short walk to the museums and to Knightsbridge, where you can find some of the world’s great treasures, past and present, spread in tantalizing display.
Your hostess is a tailor and dressmaker, whose main residence is in Leicestershire. Garway Road is her London pied-à-terre, and she’s made it a home from home.
However chill the outside air, once inside you’ll feel toasty snug in rooms as vibrant as they are cosy. The well-equipped kitchen throbs a deep scarlet, while the sitting room cossets you in tones of mocha and cream. A faux fur throw will keep you curled on the soft sofa, and the dining table’s bathed in sunshine. And there’s an attic appeal to the master bedroom, where the ceiling slopes, and the view from the window is just leaves and rooftops and sky.
