Style Notes

London living. Bright, light, traditional and yet sophisticated with modern global accents, this family home has a London stamp on it and plenty to admire. The house has been decorated with comfort and functionality in mind. The farmhouse extendable kitchen table is ideal for family meals while vintage beni ourain rugs are among the unique traveler finds throughout. We love the sash windows, the ‘Be Brave’ pennant and the compact city garden with exotic appeal.

Kensington & Chelsea, London

Hyde Park, Harrods and Her Majesty

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has a certain cachet. It’s where you’ll find Buckingham Palace, Sloane Square, the King’s Road, Harrods and many of the most upmarket stores and areas of the city. For kids, Hyde Park is a must-do, whether you go boating on the Serpentine on summer or enjoy the kid-friendly cafés around it. It’s a central area very well connected with the rest of the city by bus and Tube.
