Colourful Kensington

4 guests · 2 bedrooms · 2 bathrooms
Cherry-red walls and a bottle-green sofa are a warm welcome to this chic apartment in a row of terraced homes in London’s sought-after Kensington neighborhood. The pops of color are a playful contrast to the building’s wedding-cake architecture, gray bricks, and stately wrought-iron railings. It’s an easy walk to shops and restaurants, and less than 10 minutes to the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Settle into a holiday read or catch up on emails in a dedicated office space lined with navy-blue bookshelves and that plush green sofa. Start mornings with a cup from the Nespresso machine and finish evenings with a bottle from the wine fridge.
Greek-key and paisley prints play nicely together in the villa’s open-concept living and dining room. Dark-wood floors and taupe wallpaper are a neutral backdrop to a sofa and banquette in coordinating lilac and plum. Step into the hallway, however, and it’s a different story: brilliant red walls lead the way to a fully equipped galley kitchen.
Find a wealth of museums in the neighborhood around the villa, from the world-class design collection at the Victoria and Albert to the steam engines and space capsules at the Science Museum. Walk through Kensington Gardens, take in a concert at Royal Albert Hall, and stop for a cup of tea or a memorable meal in one of the area’s cafes and restaurants. Check off your London sightseeing list with the short drive to Buckingham Palace and Big Ben.
