Southwark apartment description
Breathe in the spicy colours, relish the rich textures and dream of long, lingering days in the sun, for this home is a real trove of Eastern delights. Scattered with mementoes from your host’s time in India, every storied objet d’art and stylish furnishing in Southwark Bridge Road sings elegantly of its exotic origins. And outside, you’re likely to be just as enchanted. Southwark is one of London’s most historic and characterful quarters, from Shakespeare’s Globe to the venerable (and exceptionally appetising) Borough Market, while the South Bank is only a cultured stroll away.
Your host is from America by way of India, having taught there for a decade before making her home in London. Now working in political risk management, she rekindles her love affair with the subcontinent as often as she can – as you can see from the many exotic souvenirs she carries back with her...
World of interiors
Every corner of this airy home parades its Eastern elegance. Light caresses the open plan sitting room, painting the Indian dressing screen and exquisite Eastern prints and fabrics with a genial glow. Laze on the creamy white sofa sipping a green tea or browse your host’s Vanity Fair magazine collection. For dinner, why not whip up some authentic Indian cuisine with the help of the cookbooks in the modern kitchen, before serving on the smart dining table of polished teak.
The double bedroom brims with books on travel, art and Tintin, while arty Indian photography festoons the radiant white walls. After a busy day, you’ll want to cool off in the gleaming shower room, or kick back in the impressive master bedroom and ensuite. But before drifting off to delicious sleep in the four poster king size bed, hitch yourself up on the feather-soft pillows to get a closer peek at its quite stunning Indian design.
East of Eden
There are rich pickings to be had for the gastronome at Borough Market, where stall upon stall of the very finest fresh produce mean you really will have eyes bigger than your stomach. Take a trip down the most modish of memory lanes at the Fashion and Textile Museum, or stroll along the South Bank. With the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, the BFI and (much, much) more at your disposal you won’t know which to sample first. And when it’s time to hit the West End, the tube from Borough station to Oxford Circus takes less than 20 minutes.
