Given that London’s most expensive new home is in The Bishops Avenue in Hampstead — a “Billionaires Row” considered one of the world’s wealthiest streets — and comes with an eye-watering £22 million price tag, you might expect its swanky interiors to reach new heights of bling-dom.
However, the interior designer hired for the job, Celia Sawyer from Channel 4’s Four Rooms show, is the Queen of Cool.
“I decided to create masculine and feminine ends to the house,” she says. “The majority of furniture has been made by Cool10 Luxury Interiors. I used a variety of textures such as rich velvets, satins, silks, leathers and suedes — all of the finest quality.”

The four-storey house of more than 17,000sq ft has eight bedroom suites, four “entertaining rooms”, a cinema, games room and leisure complex.
