One Hyde Park: Inside the £65 million apartment


It's about time the Candy brothers & Aylesford International unleashed One Hyde Park upon us. When I read about the insane, slightly nauseous and unbelievably luxuries that come with the whopping price tag of $65 million I did almost laugh out loud. 

The facts (source via Daily Mail):
  • Private wine tasting facilty
  • Underground tunnel passage to Heston Blumenthals restaurant and 24 hour room service to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for residents
  • McLaren is opening a showroom on the ground floor
  • Bullet-proof windows
  • SAS trained security guards & a panic room
  • £5.6 million stamp duty on penthouse flat
  • Interior design by Candy & Candy
  • Harvey Nichols - local corner shop
  • Eye scanners in private lifts
  • 86 apartments with 50 fulltime staff
  • 21m stainless steel ozone swimming pool, 2 steam rooms & saunas, gym, studios, gold simulator & Spa facilities.
  • Iconic architecture by Richard Rogers

Beautiful spaces

A thoroughly random post but so many gorgeous spaces I've fallen in love that I had to share.
The high ceiling and exposed beams in this living room are to die for... I would love to live here. More pics via Greige Interior Design.
One of my personal faves, John Lautner Walstrom House - isn't this pace just insanely gorgeous?
Another of my fantasy spaces, love a good warehouse & open plan living space

Hot pink and grey - love this combo, via Pinterest

Nothing like some glam touches and gorgeous fireplace.

A touch of pink...

The dark side of black

There's something quite vampish about having a moody and dark interior, although some might find it a little too much. I love that black walls can add an element of va va voom in the deeply glamourous department. Loving these images for inspiration. Would you dare to go over to the dark side?

Music, while you were sleeping

I love gifts, in any form especially presents that have had a lot of thought and effort put into them. So you can imagine my surprise and absolute delight when I received these amazing, state of the art 'Sound Asleep' pillows by Media Strom. You can also purchase these in the UK here (inexpensive!): http://www.soundasleeppillow.co.uk/
or via the US from here: http://soundasleepusa.com/

What's so darn special about them? Well this amazing pillow has built-in speakers so you can plug your ipod, mp3, tv or radio into a special little adaptor lead poking out pf the edge of the pillow and listen to music (within the pillow) before you drift off into a deep sleep.

For those of us who suffer from. insomnia, this is ideal and could help you sleep better, relax if you've had a crazy day in the office or too much going on in your head.
There's no obvious hard bit to suggest there is a speaker in the pillow, it just feel like a normal pillow. Plus the music is subtle and for your ears only!

Subtle connection for your ipod, mp3.

Whoever thought to create this is a genius, i love this!
