Caught between Chelsea and Fulham, and within whispering distance of Earls Court, sits Ifield Road IV. This is where the hum of the King’s Road meets the rustle of mature trees, and the song of contented birds carries quietly across the traffic. Step outside and, depending on where you turn, London is whatever you want it to be. Rather like this home then. Serene and spacious, it’s a blank canvas of calm. The walls are an ocean of white, with the odd island of colour – from the cushions of plump red to the scenic artwork. Fuss-free and in a great location – what could be simpler?
In your own image
Your hosts are an Australian family with two young children, currently living in Switzerland. They love the mild mountain air and lifestyle in their adopted home, but are equally happy exploring London’s museums and galleries whenever they’re in town.
Along a street of leafy trees and lovely Victorian townhouses, you’ll feel at home before you’ve even arrived. Hop up to the second floor sitting room. The walls are white, the carpet a gentle cream, and the sofa snuggly in the deepest blue. Cosy up awhile and clear your mind of all thoughts, or sip a flat white and flick on the wall-mounted TV. Then, you can flow straight into the modern kitchen, a melange of white and bright reds, where four can dine at a smart round table.
The bathroom gleams, and so will you after a stint with our White Company goodies and fluffy towels. The master bedroom is elegant in every way, with its cloud-white palette, inviting double bed and impeccably crisp linen.

Take your pick. You’re right by Fulham, home to boutiques and cosy English pubs aplenty, while Chelsea’s King’s Road has some of London’s most sought-after shopping, as well as an array of fancy restaurants and bars. Eat out in Earls Court, pop over the river to Battersea Park, or sally forth to town. The tube from West Brompton to Piccadilly Circus takes around twenty minutes.
