A Reimagined London Mews House Blends Heritage Details With Bold Pops of Color

A Reimagined London Mews House Blends Heritage Details With Bold Pops of Color

A celebration of its 20th-century origins, the two-bedroom rental offers a cozy setting fitted with vibrant artwork and vintage furnishings.

Tucked away in the heart of London’s Notting Hill neighborhood just minutes from Kensington Palace, this charming mews house presents generous indoor/outdoor living spaces that dazzle with original character.



A large wooden island with bar stool seating anchors the open-plan kitchen and dining area.

Known as St. Petersburgh Mews, the property is part of a collection from the new short-term rental company, Domus Stay, which offers a distinct curation of eclectic London residences that are rented out by the owners. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home spans three levels, with the entire top floor comprising the primary suite, which includes a walk-in closet.



Tall windows in the art-filled kitchen and dining area let in ample natural light.

Upon entry, a small foyer leads to the kitchen and dining area, which are pieced together by poured concrete floors and an open-plan layout. Exposed timber beams cap the tall, vaulted ceilings as an homage to the 20th-century structure’s past as a stable and carriage house.



The dining area features an expansive wooden table that can easily accommodate eight guests.

To create a blank canvas for the displayed artwork, the walls in this corner of the home are fitted with light pink and white hues. Wooden accents, including the large central island, help infuse the space with warmth.



A striking portrait collection hangs on the back wall of the dining room near a small desk area.

While the kitchen and dining area present a more rustic aesthetic, the main living room plays a particularly vibrant tune. Bold shades of pink and purple cloak the walls in the lounge area, while colorful furniture and intriguing pieces of art add enhanced flair.



The living room is filled with colorful furnishings and custom pieces, such as the fireplace.



Original hardwoods line the bright-orange hallway, which serves as another gallery for art.

In addition to the primary gathering areas, the dwelling also includes a home office, creative studio, and built-in workshop. A high-walled courtyard frames the structure, offering private outdoor spaces for guests.



A large picture window sweeps an abundance of natural light into the office.



Concrete floors continue into the airy creative studio, which is complete with a hand-painted work station and barn doors that offer direct outdoor access.



The converted rental home is conveniently located near many of London’s top attractions, including Hyde Park, Portobello Market, and Westbourne Grove.

"If you’re searching for a home that celebrates originality, this is it," the Domus Stay listing reads. "This aspirational two-bedroom effortlessly blends farmhouse interiors with a metropolitan lifestyle for an incredibly homely space that brims with history."



The rental property provides two bedrooms, both of which come with en suite baths.



Built-in bookshelves wind up the main staircase.



Situated under a pitched roof, the primary bedroom spans the entire third level of the home.



A freestanding tub awaits in the primary bedroom’s en suite bathroom.



The top level also includes a private terrace where guests can enjoy a peaceful morning coffee.
