"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.'' Yes, Samuel Johnson was right! I am an artist and Londoner and regularly inspired by my life in London. I was born here and I am happy to help with ideas and suggestions for your trip to my favourite city in the world! My husband is a designer and together we are a creative family. As Londoners we regularly frequent exhibitions, museums and galleries or just wander the city itself for inspiration. Between us we have amassed a specialist knowledge of London art collections, galleries and museums which we are happy to share with guests. We have also seen most of the major sights of London ourselves and can give you advice on these; they are all within easy access of our home.
We are artists and designers and are happy to share our unique accommodation with guests from all around the world. Our home is decorated personally with many lovely antiques, objects and old prints all with their own stories, some of them directly related to our local London area and general London history. We also do interior design professionally and you will see our original artworks and prints on the walls as well as the odd sculpture or two. It can seem a rare privilege to gain a unique insight into the working home of an artist-designer couple yet we are happy to share the inspiration which surrounds us every day with our guests. You can experience day-to-day life in the late Victorian home that inspires our art and design and is infused with our ideas and inspiration. We also have a huge collection of art, design, fashion, photography, interiors and history books which you are welcome to browse. We enjoy reading, movies, the cinema, travelling and meeting new people.
Since we also live here, and our housekeeper is here through the day, we can answer any travel questions you may have, and we enjoy meeting new people from around the world and making them feel welcome in London. We have travelled lots and are always open to new cultures and can communicate in English, French, Czech and Slovak, understand Russian and some other Slavic languages and Persian and can say a few words in several other languages such as Mandarin, Cantonese and Georgian etc; we enjoy soaking up the flavours of all the languages we hear in London daily! We have welcomed guests from all around the world and consider it our privilege; we especially enjoy hosting tourists who want to get the most out of seeing the sights and wonders London has to offer! We would not want you to feel lost or alone in a huge city such as ours so you can rest assured that London is a very welcoming city and you will be welcomed, helped and looked after by both us and the city at large.
