Rothwell Street is one for those of you who like to do things a little differently. No ordinary Primrose Hill family home, it’s truly original – from the yellow-striped ceilings to the extraordinary artwork. Whether you’re rocking with Rihanna or riding on the oversized fairground deer, things here are never quite as you’d anticipate. And you wouldn’t want it any other way.
Your hostess runs a bakery, and her cookbooks as well as a collection of vintage crockery litter the large eat-in kitchen. Next door, the aforementioned fairground deer now resides peacefully in the living room and guards the exit to the jungle-like patio outside, which has dining space for four. The main sitting room, meanwhile, is upstairs. Bright, charming and full of surprises, there’s a comfy burgundy corner couch, that incredible ceiling – and one lucky boy’s got his name in lights.
Over in New York City, Gramercy’s East 29th Street has been vying for our attention too. Twenty stories up, it boasts glorious views of Manhattan from its floor-to-ceiling windows as well as soothingly minimalist interiors. The chaise longue, poised against the cityscape, simply couldn’t look any more inviting.
