Great Apartment Tonardo in Shoreditch, East London – United Kingdoms.
Shoreditch is one of London’s most fashionable neighbourhoods – if a gallery opens or a restaurant pops up, nine times out of ten, it’ll be here. Soho House chose Shoreditch for its rooftop pool, and the cocktails don’t come much finer than down on Hoxton Square. And it’s here that you’ll find Leonard Street, a brand new apartment with views of the Shard and some uber-fab designer furniture. Bright, warm, and oh-so-quiet, this slick city pad is just the place to crash after a long day in town. The later the hour, the more Shoreditch swings, so make the very most of that disco nap…
The sitting room of Apartment Tonardo is as energetic as you’d expect. Album covers sing from the walls, while Eames chairs perch atop a shining wooden floor. The snazzy kitchen’s been built to the highest specifications, and you can eat either at the breakfast bar, or café-style beneath the Flatiron Building. The cream leather sofa’s enlivened by zinging turquoise throws, and the charcoal corner sofa folds out into a bed, and can be concealed behind a sliding screen. The master bedroom is relaxed and spacious, with mirrored bedside tables and acres of milkily plush carpet, while the bathroom’s white tiles are given a touch of drama with clever concealed lighting.
