Mews 04

Like a theatre set of brilliant white, this modern extension to a double fronted mews house in Hyde Park, London allows the owners' pieces to take centre stage. Art Deco meets decadence meets minalism with neoclassical whimsy and luxury. Sinuous and sensual and at times stark. Part folly, part living space, part sculpture. I have a vision of an operatic fat lady in vintage Paco Rabanne and house slippers gliding across a minimalist cube towards a Fornasetti milking stool while warbling Wagnerian lieder and sipping Nespresso. And I mean that is the best possible way! Love it. By Andy Martin Architects.

Wow what an ultra glam home. Totally agree its like a white theatre set displaying an array of colours and styles. All the unique furniture, art and treasures stand out beautifully. From the bright upholstered chairs, the modern yellow chairs to the decadent gold entrance table to the floors and art work. Fabulous.

That wavy-patterend floor might cause seizures, but I'd be willing to risk it!
