Great minds may think alike, but sometimes you need a bit of creative tension. Just take a peek at this impressive Mayfair maisonette, home to three quirky creatives – a photographer, artist and architect – all under one (distinctly upscale) roof. We think you’ll agree that their home is just that little bit spectacular. Dazzled by sunshine, sprinkled with lesser-spotted objets d’art, this home melds period features with modern flourishes, creativity with fancy comfort. And, should your muse direct you outdoors, you’ll find plenty to inspire. Mayfair is simply London’s classiest quarter, perfectly perched between Hyde Park and the West End.
Your inventive hosts are sisters, originally from France. Combing their native sophistication with English charm, their home really is as sweet as it is soigné.
The entrance hall is both stylish and sunny as it flows into the sitting room. Quirky curios draw the eye, from the vintage camera tripod to an elephant doorstop, while the walls thrum with artwork and stunning photography. Snuggle into the creamy sofa, entrust your drink to a wicker table and bid farewell to convention. Next door, the kitchen is big and superbly styled, while the balcony is just waiting to welcome you and a glass of red wine.
You’ve a smart cloakroom, elegantly panelled in polished wood, while upstairs, the bathroom is calm in deep red, its marble surfaces shiny with scrumptious White Company toiletries. Admire your host’s photography that surrounds more fine furniture in the double, before heading on to the seriously eye-catching master. A life-size painting follows your gaze as it sweeps from the vintage mannequin to a breezy row of hats, all the way round to the luxury ensuite.
A tale of two cities
Your maisonette may be whisper-quiet, but, downstairs, Mount Street is the place to be. Whether you’re sipping a cocktail at the Connaught or browsing the many boutiques, jewellers and galleries, you won’t even need that coat. Hyde Park waits just a few minutes from your door, and you can turn on your heel for the far-famed delights of the West End. Oxford Circus is a short two minute journey from Marble Arch tube.
