Style Notes

Loft living. This contemporary conversion incorporates features from its workshop past to create a quirky, airy space with an industrial but cozy feel. The high pitched ceiling, raw brickwork and beams combine with sky lights and large glass windows and doors to create an airy, relaxed environment. Artworks and textiles add soft pops of color and the handcrafted floorboards create a homely softness to the living and sleeping areas. We love the traces of the residence’s working past, combined with smart modern touches for ultimate comfort. The bijou terrace space is a welcome addition, offering the perfect spot to enjoy a peaceful morning coffee.

Fulham, London

Parks, football and the Sloaney Pony

This upmarket West London neighborhood is leafy and affluent with a gastro pub on every corner and several parks. It’s easy to get into central London from here - just six stops on the District line - and it has a sprinkle of wizarding magic as the place where Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe grew up.
