Think red, lime and blue don’t go? Think again. And though ‘bright’ and ‘spacious’ might be the most overused adjectives in the world of interior design, there really is no better way to describe this bold abode. There are two beautiful bedrooms, as well as a slick and well-styled living room with windows of decadent proportions. Oh, and did we mention the tennis court and huge garden? There’s no denying this apartment has serious game.
Let’s not beat around the bush: this home used to be a cinema. It’s since been recast as a three bedroom apartment, and the result is a cosy pad that’s best-in-show. The high ceilings are dramatic, the sleek modern furnishings are a delight, and the original deco features are show-stopping. With so much history framing your door, you might not want to leave. But if you do, Clapham’s a buzzy area with appeal for all ages.
The hosts of this characterful two bedroom home in a Grade 2 listed Brunswick building lovingly purchased most of the original 60s furniture at auction, cleverly mixing British and Scandinavian styles to create an inviting inside that matches its historical outside. The palette is a mix of loud limes and mustards – contrasting the building’s muted grandeur – and with the arty wall hangings and playful cushions, this place would be as suited to sophisticated drinks before dinner as it would to ‘Netflix and chill’.
When most people think converted loft, they think art, space and light. Unsurprisingly, this fashionable Stoke Newington apartment has all three in abundance. The surrounding neighbourhood is quirky and coveted, and the flat’s colourful perspex chairs and eye-popping wall graphics will certainly whet your appetite before you step outside to explore.
Where better to while away the hours than the clock tower above St Pancras International? There’s an unrivalled view of St Paul’s, as well as…well, most of the city’s skyline, and it’s within minutes of The British Library. Not sold? The interior is as perfect as the location, with carved antique furnishings, a palette of gorgeous creams, and a sizeable library of its own.
This home is an eco-friendly houseboat. And it’s in Chelsea. We could leave it there, but it’s also worth mentioning the beautiful mix of hide, leather and dark wood, along with the cute deck for watching the city’s elite pass by over coffee on misty London mornings. Ah, bliss.
We’re sure you’ll agree that the above Airbnb homes in London are a cut above the cookie-cutter, white-walled rooms found in a city hotel (the ‘boutique’ variety included!). And better yet, as they all benefit from Airbnb management services, you can be assured there’s no compromise on quality or cleanliness either. Perfect 🙂
