Home and away

When is a hotel not a hotel? When it is an unhotel. A home that is let when the owner is away. Home and away. Take this stunning Georgian townhouse in Thurloe Square in London. On trend interior design, fabulous position, great art, floors of stunning rooms and style, style and even more style. You can live the owners life for a few days. pretend it's all yours before you head on your way. All the advantages of a hotel including the bottles of shampoo to steal but in a property that is quirky, luxe, exclusive and delicious. Thurloe Square via onefinestay.

Is that a television built into the ceiling of the ceiling of the purple swagged bedroom? A vent? Love the drawing room though.

It is gorgeous and it's in London. The bedroom looks breathtaking

Gorgeous. Does anyone have an idea about where the framed prints in Pictures 5+7 are from?

I've been paging back after a few days away, so mentally, I'm contrasting this with the posts that come after it -- specifically, with the designer's home rolled out with furniture made of wooden boxes and flats, decorated with found objects and restraint. The sense of ease and usefulness, of being part of a cycle -- rather than an apex consumer, which is the only human who would find this place comfortable.

The natural timber flooring with white walls and furniture is a lovely pairing
