Bayswater is nothing if not diverse, the contrasting delights of Portobello Road – a five-minute walk – as well as Edgware Road. Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens all nearby (and Bayswater and Queensway tube stations are both close at hand). Indeed, it’s hard to imagine a more fitting place for a home as unique as this (and in such a peaceful location). Take the lift up to the 6th floor – hidden inside this spacious apartment is an extensive collection of both vintage and contemporary furniture, plus artworks, books and distinctive objets from all over the world. But there’s no museum hush here – this is a place to actively enjoy. Welcome friends to the leather benches in the laid-back kitchen, and let the distinct breakfast bar opposite kick-start the conversation.
Your hosts are incredibly well-travelled, and they bring back curios from every trip they take. These are prominently displayed in their London home, reminding them of their big adventures.
An original creation
Return to Moscow Road II after a day enjoying Bayswater’s many delights – Kensington Gardens is temptingly close – and you’ll find that it’s not just this home’s intriguing collections that catch the eye.
There’s evidence of relaxation as well as curation here, comfort clearly the desired end. There's a spacious outdoor balcony, and the composed sitting room is filled with sofas to sink into (not to mention well-stocked with striking artworks), and there’s a generous bathtub in each quirky bathroom. As for the two restful bedrooms, with their muted tones warmed by splashes of jewel red, they really couldn’t be more inviting.
