Interior designer Tessa Kennedy has decorated the homes of countless stars and kitted out London hotels including Claridge’s, The Berkeley and The Ritz’s Rivoli Bar.
Next week she’s decluttering her three-bedroom Knightsbridge apartment by parting with some of her personal treasures at auction at Christie’s in South Kensington.
From Louis XV chairs to a four-poster bed, her opulent furniture would add flamboyance to any home, as would this pair of ormolu wall trophies, estimated to fetch £2,500-£4,000. Clients Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton bought them in Monte Carlo and sent them home by private jet.
