Westminster apartment description

Starboard home

Up where the crows nest, in the loft of a beautiful London townhouse, sits St. Helens Gardens. This is a studio so sweet that you’ll feel like a living doll. Ruffled muslin and antique furniture nestle together atop a polished wooden floor clad in the loveliest of Turkish rugs. With its curvy window, sun bleached colour palette and weathered nicknacks, a stay here is as refreshing as any cruise.

The captain of your ship

A textiles designer by trade, your hostess has filled her home with fabrics of her own design. St. Helens Gardens is her second home; for most of the year she can be found in her main residence down in the seaside town of Falmouth, and something of that Cornish purity has undoubtedly found its way back to London.

Floating your boat

St Helens Gardens is undeniably compact, but, in keeping with naval tradition, your hostess knows how to make the best of limited space. The galley-style kitchen’s vintage Mediterranean, while the tiny indigo bathroom exudes old school-glamour.
The main living area is open plan, and utterly exquisite. There’s a dreamy quality to this home, a sense of being hidden from the rest of the world. Birds jig and bob both outside and in, and should your imagination take flight, have a seat at the vintage writing desk. On summer nights, open the doors to the balcony and sit out among the chimney pots. Down below the sharks may be circling, but up here, you can be anywhere you want.

Your next port of call

St Helens Gardens is as calm as a millpond, but if you want to find yourself some fun, a trip to nearby Notting Hill’s plain sailing. You’re within walking distance of the area’s many gorgeous restaurants, cafes and boutiques. And if you fancy bring back some treasure, head over to the world famous Portobello Road antiques market. Best of all, take the tube into the centre of the city, just fifteen minutes away.

The host of this charming attic has made the most of the available space, but some guests might find it a little on the cosy side. -There is also a single bed in the open plan living room which could sleep an extra child or maybe an adult. Taller adults will definitely find this bed to be on the small side. -As this an open studio home, there is limited privacy as both beds are adjacent to the living room with nothing separating them. -In keeping with the nautical theme of this home, the roof terrace is accessed by a few steep and narrow steps. This may prove difficult for certain guests....moreless
