Step inside and be swept away by the river of rouge in the hallway that instantly floods this home with warmth and personality. Calmer waters await in the living room, a paean to serene urban sophistication with its Aegean-hued walls, inviting velvet teal sofa and reclaimed wood floors (and don’t worry exquisite Persian rug, we haven’t forgotten you...).
Switch off instantaneously amid soft ambient lighting and plush pillowy whites in the bedrooms and wake up fully recharged for another day exploring the intoxicating sights of Hoxton and Shoreditch. Start things off gently with a low-key coffee in the modern fitted kitchen, although we’d advise holding back on that slice of toast. With so many artisan street food outlets scattered around this part of town, you might just need to save some space.
Feeling a touch rebellious? A quiet night in is probably as close as you can get to being truly countercultural in this most free-spirited of neighbourhoods. On that score, the secluded patio terrace is sweetly accommodating. Spend a blissful evening accompanied by nothing stronger than a piping hot brew at sundown; in fact, if you listen carefully, you may just hear the gentle hum of the night owls of Shoreditch swooping into life.
The flamboyant pot pourri of texture and colour in the living room and hallway; a none-too-subtle reminder you’re residing in one of London’s hippest districts.
