Number Two Walpole Mayfair is the first
and most traditional of the lateral apartments, characterised by high ceilings and intricate period features.
A beautifully proportioned entrance hall paved with Carrara marble sets the tone of this elegant apartment
with its statement Art Nouveau Lalique console table juxtaposed with antique mirrors. Throughout, blacks,
beiges and golds form the background palette against which a work of art – the vibrant colours of a Miró, for
example–are brought into dramatic relief.
The gracious drawing room, with its comfortable Chesterfield sofas upholstered in Kedri silk, segues into the
dining room through an elegant archway supported by fluted pillars. Here, a marble fireplace and bespoke
ebony credenzas with gilt details add a touch of baronial style, updated with the contemporary touch of
Versace tableware. The oak floor below and matching crystal chandeliers above, as well as the harmonious
colour scheme, provide visual continuity throughout the two rooms.
The Boffi kitchen adjoining the dining room, is a sleek interplay of textures–high gloss, marble and wood, with
Pietra Del Cardoso worktops–housing state of the art appliances, the contemporary illuminated by the witty
conceit of a chandelier.
The three bedroom suites each have a distinctive character. From the regal master bedroom, with its four-
poster bed and Louis XVI-style bedside tables by Cotema Valencia, to the feminine sophistication of the second
bedroom with its exquisite lacquered birds-eye maple wardrobes and the pure lines of the third bedroom–
everything is designed to marry comfort, practicality and elegance. Especial attention has been paid to the
bathrooms, the inner sanctum of a home and an area of specialism for Oliver Burns as
Bathroom Designer of
the Year
.
Whether it is a basin by Falper, with its quilted texture reminiscent of Chanel, Swarovski fixtures, or
ebonised mahogany fittings, these are rooms in which to luxuriate.
