LONDON

BURNT

I had been meaning to watch the movie ‘Burnt’ starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller for a while. I finally had the opportunity to watch it during the blizzard we had this past weekend. It’s about chef Adam Jones, who ruined his career with drugs and alcohol. To redeem himself he returns to London to open a restaurant and gain three Michelin stars. I enjoyed it. If you end up watching it let me know what you think.

HEMPEL GARDENS

I am intrigued by Anouska Hempel’s landscapes. Her gardens are green and very structured. They seem like a modern take on what old British gardens used to be like.

Hempel has an interesting story…she was a James Bond vixen turned British socialite and has an internationally recognized firm specializing in interior designer and landscape architecture. Not too shabby……

Above is what the garden looks like by day. Below is what the garden can look like during an event with the use of a tent and lanterns. I would have loved to be the one to host a dinner like this one.

MODERN GOTH

This tri-level London penthouse is sparse in some aspects but rich in textures. This bachelor pad is located in a renovated 19th-century building near St. Pancras railway station. (The train station Harry Potter goes to for trips to Hogwarts). The penthouse is on England’s National Heritage List and as a result the beautiful original features had to be preserved.

I love the curtain wall in the master bedroom, the velvet headboard and the textured muted wallpaper…it all adds an element of coziness considering its open tri-level floor plan. The master bath is simply and amazingly well designed for a bachelor.

The arrabascato marble his and her bathrooms at the bottom are for guests. They (TG Studio- London) ingeniously encompass the beautiful scenic views of London, as well as took the high ceilings into consideration by adding the chandeliers as center pieces.

The best part of all of this…….The original BEAMS.
