Faraday Road, W10
Quirky, fun and bright, this two-bedroom apartment keeps things cool yet sophisticated. Spanning two incredibly spacious floors, the social kitchen / reception perfectly juxtaposes the serenity of the secluded bedrooms and study zone to create an overall knockout space. Echoing a playful yet practical feel throughout, the end result is a seriously stunning and cosy home.
Whoever designed this home truly understands and respects social and private spaces. Where to begin with the super bright and cool social hangout – from the fire-orange SMEG refrigerator to the rich wooden floors that beautifully complement the nature-oriented furnishings, every detail has been thought through with the utmost attention. A modern open-plan kitchen creates a seamless flow of activity throughout the entire level. The unique angled roof, which not only features a charming skylight, but also various funky lights, adds dimension to the space. The neighbouring reception screams Scandi Style – from the leather laid-back chair, oakwood coffee table and neutral colour palette – we’re totally in love with this pocket. Bright pops of colour in the eccentric dining chairs add the ideal hint of playfulness to this immaculately styled room.
Moving onto the bedrooms, there’s a clear continuation of Scandi-inspired living. Just take a look at the master bedroom suite, featuring a striking matte black wall that blends together with the traditional fireplace and thereby beautifully complements the burnt-orange minimalist bench and crisp white walls. The original ornate cornicing is like the cherry on top – completing a beautifully styled and effortless space to retreat to. A secluded study with an exclusive south-facing balcony offers a charming retreat with complete serenity and away from the hustle and bustle of the social zone.
Nestled in a fabulous little pocket just off Ladbroke Grove and Portobello Road, it’s the best of both worlds. With local gems Snaps + Rye, Lowry & Baker and Golborne Road at one’s doorstep, it’s highly unlikely there will ever be a need to venture out of the W10 bubble. Simply stunning, this home deserves the recognition it gets from us in its design and finish, which can only be described as effortlessly bold yet elegant.
