The stupendous penthouse at No.1 Hyde Park went up for sale at the mind boggling sum of £140 million. The 2 floor apartment has cost more than £6000.00 per square foot.The property is the brainchild of the Candy brothers, Nick and Christian.
With unquestionably one of the best views over London from it’s floor to ceiling windows this apartment has the added bonus of security from SAS trained bodyguards, bullet proof glass and a panic room. There is even a direct tunnel to the London Mandarin oriental where the top chef Heston Blumenthal will be opening his first London restaurant.
Naturally with a property of this calibre there is an abundance of extras such as Spas and squash courts and the acclaimed car –maker McLaren is opening a car showroom on the ground floor.
The 24 hour room service should please any resident but should they wish to do their own cooking, which is highly unlikely, the local shop has quite a few fabulous things to try. The shop is Harrods. There is even a private wine tasting facility.
There can be no question that no expense was spared for the luxury interior fit out and judging by the photographs of some of the interiors published so far only the finest of furniture and fabrics have been used to give a really opulent feel.
Too give your property this luxury feel, albeit not the price tag, there are some fabulous products out there to create a similar look.
Reflection, gloss and shine denote luxury. Think gold, platinum and diamonds!!
Walls are easily given the luxury feel as there are some really incredible metallic wallpapers on the market now. For a really dramatic and striking look cover a wall with mirror glass. This is big designer trick that is not as expensive as it seems. It also creates an illusion of more space.
Mirror furniture is also a great look for glamour. The latest glass furniture is in grey, black ,bronze and gold as well as the silver. The fabric of the moment is the slinky soft shine velvet for upholstery. If you can’t afford a new sofa or really love the sofa you have, re-upholstery is a fantastic option. For real breathtaking luxury, high gloss leather is the absolute winner.
The neutral silver greys and pale bronzes are really successful. Add to that some silver stud detailing or even more outstanding, Swarovski crystal buttoning ,on sofas and chairs and immediately that creates an opulent look.
Silk hand tufted rugs are a great centre piece in any room. These can be made to correspond with your chosen colour scheme.
Add to this a glass top coffee on either a chrome or luxury wood base. Always have on your coffee table a selection of hard back reference books along with a couple of objet d’art.
Lamps are also a great way of creating drama and luxury. The golden rule here is to pick as large as you can go with table lamps. Very small table lamps look cheap. The only small lamps that look good are buffet lamps of which you have two, one at each end of a sideboard or large console table.
Centre lights and chandeliers are making a big comeback after spotlights. They really do give a luxurious feel, but again buy the biggest and best you can. Interior designers often use very large vases or sculptures to stand alone as a focal piece. This creates a very dramatic effect.
Finally add some large mirrors and or prints in luxury frames and you have a room like the luxury London homes.
