The owners of this Notting Hill family home are avid travellers, so we combined aspects of a boutique hotel with home comforts for a look and feel that is familiar yet luxurious. Tactile furnishings, a chic and muted colour scheme and soft, fluid shapes give a sense of understated decadence.
The living room of this three-bedroom late-Edwardian home in St John’s Wood draws from art deco and 1920s design influences with a mid-century modernist twist. Bold geometric forms, luxe materials such as marble and limestone, and gold accents work together to create a space that is luminous, elegant and memorable.
Effortless and understated interiors in this sleek principal bedroom make an impact without feeling contrived. Plenty of wood - hardwood floors and a custom walnut floating headboard - feel neutral and natural, while metallic accents and luxury soft furnishings add a touch of elegance. Multi-level lighting enhances the bedroom’s calming and soothing ambience.
Nothing evokes a sense of calm quite like natural, earth-inspired tones and natural materials. In this beachside luxury Mediterranean villa, you'll find a light and breezy bedroom that is timeless but still makes a lasting impression, with handcrafted, quilted soft-furnishings and beautifully textured wooden bedside tables.
Despite being sky-high, this luxury penthouse in the Hell’s Kitchen district of New York has a grounded and peaceful feel, owing in part to the neutral, earthy palette and subtle contrast of natural textures.
