Located in a restored 19th-century drawing room at Somerset House in Central London, Skye Gyngell’s restaurant Spring has been one of the UK’s most hashtagged and talked about restaurants since it opened in 2014.
With 200-year-old wooden flooring sourced from Dinesen, polished carrara marble worktops and walls embellished with porcelain blossoms, it is a space that lingers in the mind long after a meal is over.
Natural materials such as leather, hand-blown glass and timber run throughout, reflecting Skye’s organically led menu. Apart from shots of millennial pink and brass accents, the colours are tranquil and muted.
The first hotel from renowned interiors guru Jasper Conran (who has more than 30,000 followers on Instagram) is a visual delight. Situated in the heart of the red city’s medina, L’Hôtel Marrakech captures the essence of 1930s glamour and combines it with traditional Moroccan craftsmanship.
There are five luxurious suites, each with whitewashed walls, high zouak ceilings and lavish details.
