Blakes

Designed by former Bond girl Anouska Hempel, who is known globally for her striking interiors, this little gem of a couture hotel is all grandeur and exoticism, a tempting fusion of east meets west behind a black Victorian facade. Polished mirrors throw rich walnut tones around the lobby in a display of decadence and drama. Blake’s has recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment and each of the 47 rooms takes its cue from a different far-off land. At Blake’s privacy and sumptuousness are assured.

This is another of Kit Kemp’s ‘modern English’ properties, with wood-panelled rooms with French fireplaces and high windows that let light flood in.

The Haymarket was extensively remodelled by Tim and Kit Kempand now comprises 50 rooms and one exclusive luxury townhouse property. All feature granite and oak bathrooms and the best in luxury finish. The Haymarket’s façade was designed by legendary master architect John Nash, who developed most of Regency London, including Buckingham Palace and nearby Trafalgar Square, and features a striking row of columns running the length of Suffolk Place. Interiors are ‘modern English’, with clean, airy spaces and spectacular lighting schemes, highlighted by handpicked antiques, rich textures and bold colours.

The drawing room, lobby and library of this London design hotel are adorned with original artworks by significant British artists and art lovers will go wild for the Carol Sinclair sculptures that rise from the floor. But the art doesn’t overshadow designer Kit Kemp’s signature mix of patterns, fabrics and furniture styles, all set off with African touches and a jazzy contrast of stripes, florals and geometric shapes.

The private and distinctive Pelham is a blend of country cottage and smart townhouse located in South Kensington, between Chelsea and Hyde Park. The property draws inspiration from the surrounding museums, antique shops and art dealers, revealing the rich and vibrant atmosphere of the area. Beyond the porticoed façade is a blend of freshness and modernity, with richly decorated rooms of fine detail, large original oil paintings and carefully chosen antique furnishings. The wood-panelled mahogany library is the place for a relaxing cognac and, like the eclectic drawing room, features a period fireplace.
