Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Notting Hill - Vernon Yard
2 bedroom,2 bathroom, elegantly furnished house in popular West London location
Glitter and be gay
For this home is as precious as gold dust. Dazzlingly pretty and of the most gorgeous hue, Vernon Yard is a rare jewel. Forget solitaire rings, this is true romance – chandeliers, a four-poster bed, a wrought iron staircase straight from a fairy tale… As we know, the setting is as important as the stone, and a charming mews just off Portobello Road proves the perfect fit. Whether you’re delving into the gleaming trays of the antiques market, sampling Hummingbird cupcakes or strolling in Kensington Gardens, we know you’ll agree, this is a home to treasure.
Your hostess is a freelance jewellery designer. She seeks inspiration in architecture, and travels the world with her sketchbook – but she’s always keen to return home to her adorable dog, too.
There’s something of the feel of a jewel box to this home, every room is filled with gorgeous objects, exquisite to the very last detail. There’s an Eastern feel to the finely wrought dining room doors, behind which you’ll discover a lovely day bed. The dining table itself dips and swirls in the purest white, and the dainty birdcage will make your heart sing. The kitchen’s a-blush in the softest pink, and you’ll find a modern shower room in natural limestone. Upstairs there are two peaceful double bedrooms, the master sublimely opulent in pearl and sapphire, and a bathroom with vintage tiles and a traditional copper bath. The sitting room is filled with your hostess’ own sketches, lit by antique crystal. Nestle down upon the sofa, or, when darkness falls, climb the stairs to the roof terrace, and sip drinks beneath a diamond sky.
Magpies will wish to rise early and flit between the stalls of Portobello Road Market, where you’ll find brooches and bangles aplenty, alongside vintage clothing and all sorts of bric-a-brac. Notting Hill’s filled with funky cafes and hip bars, and those who prefer to buy new will delight in some very fabulous boutiques. And if you want to head into town, the tube from Notting Hill Gate to Oxford Circus takes less than ten minutes.
