If you’re looking for beauty, take Uverdale Road as your model. Surrounded by pretty iron railings and Victorian architecture, this home sits at the heart of a neighbourhood soon to be designated as a conservation area. And inside is just as delicate. Muted greys and dreamy blues are brightened by the kitchen’s skylights, while unusual glass jellyfish and sculpted bronzes are all polish and poise. There’s much to take pleasure in outside too, on the floral terrace or around the corner on the King’s Road. Indeed, with its cafés and galleries, bars and eateries, you’re sure to find something to amuse.
Venus de Milo
Your hostess transformed this home from lacklustre to luxurious in a matter of weeks, imparting an impeccable sense of style inside and out. As an artist, she attends Heatherley’s School of Fine Art nearby, and her striking sculptures can be found in the living area.
##Pretty as a picture
Each room is thoughtfully designed, but the sitting room’s clean lines, fair palette and soft upholstery might make it the most inviting. Beyond the sculptures and polished countertops, each vying for attention, there’s the pretty terrace with wicker garden furniture and potted plants.
And when it’s time to close the shuttered bay windows against the night, there’s plenty more to draw a sigh – from the sparkly tiled bathroom to the master suite with its super-king bed.
