Wild blue yonder
A good traveller has no fixed plans. St Catherine’s Mews may sit firm on Knightsbridge soil, but to step into this home is to roam free and far. See the bedroom furnished Africa-fashion, layered with furs and funky animal-print cushions. See the Vegas-style sitting room with its violet velvet sofas and neon sign that reads, ‘the world is mine.’ But do remember you’re at home as much as away. The kitchen is spacious as well as silver-spangled, the trendy balcony beautifully soothing. With Knightsbridge’s famous restaurants and shops on your doorstep and Chelsea and South Kensington so close, your location is more than a little convenient too.
Infinity and beyond
Your hosts are a couple with three children. If you detect a certain American influence to their home, that would be your hostess, who brought some razzle dazzle back across the pond.
No fixed abode
Every journey starts with a single step, and this one’s begins in a quiet gated mews. Look in on the sitting room, a Vegas casino of velvet sofas, neon lights and walls of whirling purple. Sit back and feel decidedly decadent, or be dazzled by the kitchen and its silvery-bright feature wallpaper. Younger sightseers have worlds of imagination to discover, while the African-style double will delight those more daring explorers. So see the sun as it sinks below the balcony, rest wearied legs in the serene master. Or go on a sojourn, London awaits.
