House Tour: An interior designer's grand and colourful holiday home in London

Design Intervention principal Nikki Hunt’s apartment in the posh district of Knightsbridge, London, pays homage to the property’s grand architecture, while fostering a sense of fun befitting a holiday home.

Having grown up in London, Nikki knew exactly where she wanted her holiday home to be. Based in Singapore, she shuttles between the two cities every quarterly to check in on her two children studying in the UK, and to manage commissions by Singapore clients to design their London homes, as well as to participate in trade fairs and award ceremonies.

“I wanted to be close to South Kensington or Knightsbridge because of their proximity to the airport. There is nothing worse than getting off a 12-hour flight and being faced with gridlocked traffic,” she says.
