Picture of health
If London’s flurry leaves you out of breath, flow to Elystan Place II. Though the busy King’s Road lies around the corner, this perky Chelsea townhouse possesses the harmonies of nature. Fancy florals and lively artworks catch and soothe the eye, while warmly tinted prints and glass-walled staircases are smart and sleek. Whether you recline on a chaise longue with a cup of tea or take the breeze on one of the two leafy terraces, we don’t think it will be long until your Zen is well-restored.
The good life
Your American hostess has made a home from her own healthful image. When not reading up on restorative living, she can often be found in the kitchen baking granola and delicious gluten-free delicacies.
Right as rain
There’s a beguiling flow to this four-floor home, but you’ll be forgiven for lingering on the sitting room’s paired armchairs and sofas awhile. The prints are feminine and floral, and a few generous skylights are all the better to see them with.
Eaters, both healthy and hearty, will appreciate the bright, pleasant kitchen, or perhaps you’d prefer to indulge al fresco? And if you’re still pondering the secret to well-being afterwards, you’ll surely find it in one of the two stylish and serene bedrooms.
