On Sunday we visited a pop-up apartment in the newly renovated 155 Sloane Street building in Chelsea that Wallpaper* magazine has designed to showcase modern, stylish living. It provided a veritable feast of interior design novelties.

Apartment 5 at 155 Sloane Street certainly gives a glimpse of stylish and modern living. Inevitably it feels like a very swish show home and I’m not sure I could live with quite so many shiny surfaces. But there is much to admire. The layout of rooms is good, making the most of aspect, views and space constraints. There are many individual, beautiful objects, that are somehow dulled a little by their proximity to so many other equally beautiful objects. Less really is more. However, the tea trolley, the gold convex mirror and the mustard armchair would keep me happy for a very, very long time. And the paint scheme works brilliantly, containing some of my favourite Farrow & Ball colours: Stiffkey Blue, Mole’s Breath, Pavilion Gray and Oval Room Blue.

Sadly, the pop-up was only open to the public over the past weekend. Contact Cadogan if you are interested in purchasing one of the 10 apartments.
