An Oasis of Calm
Midway between Kensington, Knightsbridge and Soho and only steps from Buckingham Palace and No. 1 London, you’d think that Hamilton Mews would be a maelstrom of urban chaos. Far from it. It’s hidden down a quiet side street, in an exclusive building, and sandwiched between two of the city’s most beautiful parks, Hyde Park and Green Park. Inside, you’re suspended in a bubble of creams, blues and greys, lifted by sunshine, flowers and reams of honeyed wood. Cuddle on the couch, give your credit card a workout on Oxford Street, or get glam in Mayfair’s glittering bars. And if you do happen to overindulge, well, this home is the ultimate rest cure.
Your English host has ties to the British Isles and also New Zealand. He is a seasoned traveller, zipping between Africa, Europe and New Zealand. He has a second home in rural Northumberland, and despite his near-constant movement, he remains a fountain of positive energy.
All is calm
Art and artefacts from around the world add a dash of exotic allure to these cosy, traditionally English rooms, where delicate floral fabrics swaddle the plump cushions, and the colour palette sings of a summer’s evening. There’s no edge to this home, and no confusing gadgetry, just softness and an endless sense of serenity, be it in the two sandstone bathrooms, the open plan main living space, or tucked up between our crisp white sheets
