Covent Garden isn’t known for its quiet corners, and despite its Victorian lampposts and historied cobbles, this street is no different. Inside, the atmosphere is calmer. Wide windows, white walls and clean-cut furniture create a serene space, brightened by nature-inspired accessories. The blue and pink floral rug is soft underfoot, while the sunburst clock complements the colourful artworks of flowers and is as vibrant as nearby Embankment Gardens. Villiers Street is a sweet spot to idle in – there’s the sitting room’s plump grey sofa to unfurl atop and a fresh master bedroom with views of the street below.
Your host divides her time between scholarly Oxford and the bright lights of London. She was drawn to central London's energy and loves to indulge in its many vibrant attractions – theatreland is just beyond her door.
Rise early – the smartly fitted kitchen and sunny dining table for two will ensure your day gets off to a good start. And with bustling Trafalgar Square and pretty Covent Garden so close, you’ll find plenty of ways to pass the extra time.
After a day of landmark-spotting or theatre-going, you’ll find this home’s just as inviting in the moonlight. Soak long in the bathroom’s deep bathtub, or retire straight to the window-side master bed in the soft light of the bedside lamps.
