URBAN SOPHISTICATES will love the fun, country-house vibe of The Pelham – a dashing and distinctly English London townhouse in smartest South Kensington that simply oozes style.
Elegant, well groomed and dazzlingly individual, The Pelham is anything but stuffy. Designer Kit Kemp has created an address that's intimate, colourfully contemporary and packed with visual flair. Look out for bold shades, handsome furnishings, squishy sofas and eye-catching artworks. Bursts of fresh flowers are everywhere.
Complete with open fireplace, the wood panelled and warmly lit lounge is a haven of comfort – just the place to compare bijou buys from the glitzy nearby stores of Knightsbridge and Fulham Road over a glass of fizz.
Bedrooms at The Pelham come with high ceilings, tall windows and bags of individual style. You'll find big beds – many of them four postered – fresh colours, fetching fabrics and well chosen paintings. Clad in marble and mahogany, bathrooms are sleek and well stocked with bubbles and bottles.
Modern and antique pieces are deftly mixed, underlining the feel of well-heeled luxury. Quirky touches abound – be it a chaise longue, handsome bust or bold artwork. Attention to detail is everywhere, whether in the proper hairdryer, funky retro radio or attractively stocked minibar.
London's best is on the doorstep here, and The Pelham's welcoming and well informed staff are on hand to help you make the best of it. Turn one way for the V&A and Kensington's blockbuster museums, or the other for fashionable Fulham Road and South Ken's thriving cafe culture. With the tube less than a minute away, you can be zipping into the West End in no time.
