A glowing, tantalising beauty of a house, which gradually reveals its secrets. Anouska Hempel has united two Grade II listed houses in Holland Park in London as a home par excellence, with a formal Italian garden, topiary, conservatory and Orangery. Inside, the various elements of style, colour and texture are brought together in a magnificent, deliberate concoction of the static and the fluid; the oriental and the European; light and dark; and layer upon layer: interiors to enrich the senses.
