Islington apartment description

Amateur dramatics

Banner Street is a home that makes you want to declaim its glory to the whole world. A colour palette that would be the envy of any costume cupboard, deployed with the drollest wit, this penthouse is lively, modern and quite wildly theatrical. Every piece of furniture makes a statement in sunny rooms that’ll have you grinning from ear to ear. Fashionable Clerkenwell is where media types come to see films at the Barbican, to shop at Angel and eat in some of the best gastropubs in the capital. You’re within walking distance of the City, Brick Lane, and the gigantic dressing up box that is Spitalfields Market.

Glowbugs

Your host is a lighting designer, while your hostess runs a consultancy business. They spend much of their spare time living the good life in their second home in Sicily. Keen readers both, they’re passionate about design, and their home is a gloriously eccentric ode to taste.

Light up the room

Floor-to-ceiling windows, a magenta rug, cherry-red chairs – the sitting room of Banner Street is ablaze with vitality. Venture out onto the balcony for city views amidst a tangle of chlorophyll, or stay in and experience cutting-edge design. There’s something of the feel of a New York loft, with wooden floors and bold furniture, all finished in the zingiest reds, pinks and purples. The kitchen’s brand new, its smart grey units softened by a crowd of orchids, and six can dine in the sunshine.

The master bedroom is cheerful and chic, with its raspberry-toned bed, rainbow artwork, and, behind an exquisite screen, a luminescent ensuite. The second double is just as delightful, with lilac walls and a lipstick-pink blind, and there’s a second bathroom, too, filled with scrummy White Company toiletries.

Bright ideas

You’re just a few roads away from Whitecross Street market, where foodies can gather fresh bread and artisan cheeses to sustain them for an afternoon nosing around the vintage emporia of Brick Lane. Catch a concert at the Barbican, or walk to St Paul’s and the river by way of Clerkenwell’s cobbled back streets. If you like staying out late, Hoxton Square’s bars will have you up into the small hours and beyond, while the tube from Barbican to Oxford Circus takes around fifteen minutes.
