Islington apartment description

A good vintage

So, you wear your spectacles large, and your leather battered, you spend your weekends browsing the vinyl and you really heart New York? Augustus Lane is a one bedroom hipster’s dream pad, with a mixture of modern and retro furniture that’ll knock you off your moccasin-clad feet. And, with its organic cafes, snazzy bars and some of London’s best vendors of designer stuff, Islington is the spiritual home of all things cool. So take your iPad to Highbury Fields, head over to the arts cinema, or just get on with some high-level pootling.

New girl

Your young hostess is fearsomely intelligent and funny with it. Half British, half American, she works for the UK government. And when she’s not wearing her serious hat, this girl loves the odd puzzle, and reading in the bath.

Modern retro

Witty and pretty, this is a home with a smile on its face. The sitting room is up on the first floor, where you’ll find an enormous purple velvet sofa (which your hostess bought entirely on impulse), some gorgeous pieces of fifties and sixties furniture, and all manner of intriguing trinkets. If you’re feeling creative, take a seat at the polished writing desk, or for quieter moments, select a book from an impressive collection and while away an hour or so. When you're done, swing into the modern kitchen and mix yourself a well-earned cocktail.

The bedroom is downstairs, with more fifties pieces, and a double bed made up with our snowy linen. Next door, the bathroom sparkles, and the bath’s just waiting for you to lie back in our White Company bubbles with a much-loved Tolstoy.

Freedom to explore

Nearby Upper Street is packed with restaurants, and a bar scene so lively that it rivals the West End. When you’re done browsing the boutiques, have an amble around the back streets, where you’ll find cute pubs and lovely garden squares. And if you want to get into town, the tube from Highbury and Islington to Oxford Circus takes less than ten minutes.
