Welcome to another edition of our ‘Sleeping Around’ series, where we unveil the newly refurbished Room 102 at Number Sixteen. Nestled within a charming Victorian terraced townhouse in the heart of South Kensington, join us as we explore the unique elements that make this room a serene and romantic retreat.
The walls, adorned with Fermoie fabric in the beloved ‘Wave’ pattern, introduce a rhythmic and soothing connection to the natural world. These gentle waves bring the tranquillity of the outdoors inside, providing a respite from the city’s hustle and bustle. The room’s crowning jewel, a generously sized window, offers a peaceful view of Number Sixteen’s lush green garden, a rare urban oasis.
The bed takes centre stage in the room with its romantic half tester, dressed in crisp white linen and elegantly framed by our vibrant ‘Heart of Oak‘ fabric in collaboration with Rosebank Fabrics. This fabric, in the ‘Evergreen’ colour palette, boasts warm oranges, reds, and subtle greens printed on a durable heavyweight herringbone union.
The curtains, a collaboration of ours with Christopher Farr, feature the ‘One Way’ pattern in a bespoke ‘Watermelon’ colourway, injecting a contemporary playfulness into the space. A smaller-scale ‘Small Way’ serves as a leading edge, adding a modern twist to the room’s traditional ambiance. For practicality and timeless style, the tub chairs are upholstered in Madeaux’s ‘Jajim’ woven stripe fabric, a versatile and durable choice and perfect for commercial interiors. This fabric not only infuses vibrancy into the room but also ensures long-lasting elegance.
To complete the vintage charm, antique armoires and furniture finished in a rich, dark hue have been thoughtfully curated, enhancing the room’s authentic and timeless appeal.
This Deluxe Room at Number Sixteen offers a soothing and romantic ambiance that seamlessly blends contemporary and traditional elements, resulting in a visually captivating and exceptionally comfortable space. Whether you’re gazing out of the window, snuggled in the half-tester bed or admiring the playful mix of patterns, this room promises an unforgettable and delightful stay.
We hope you enjoyed this exclusive glimpse into the newly refurbished Room 102 at Number Sixteen.
