40 Winks

40 winks london
I am still in shock here. This 2 bedroom hotel - 40 Winks -in London, yes London, charges £80 per night for this room,

take a look at that mannequin and

and £65 per night for this one. How cheap is that for London?

Elegant interiors designed by David Carter who actually lives here. Now there is a catch, this is for the use of photographers, stylists, art directors, designers, buyers, models and anyone in the creative and fashion industries as this place has been used for years as a photographic location.

All I need to do now is go back into the fashion industry.

That's really nice. Not so sure about the location, although I guess that accounts for the price

I love the gold glow from the bathroom wall, think I'll get out my gold transfer leaf, I feel a gilt trip coming on.

Very nice. Also makes me wonder...how is everyone dressing their mannequins these days? Best, Trish

Great! That means that creative bloggers (like yourself!) should be able to get one of those rooms! BTW, love everything in the last picture! Look at that rug!! Cyber hug, Mon.

It is lovely and I will have to keep this in mind for a future/soon trip. Love the little couch with pillows in the window--so lovely!

It's beautiful, but if you look up the address on Google Maps Streetview, you'll see it's an ugly main road in East London, overlooking an ugly council estate.

I see he's redecorated a bit! I wonder, though - where does he live when the place is booked?

Freshly Found said...

Another reason I have to try and get to London soon! Wow. So much style!
