BLAKES- RECREATING ITS ETHEREAL ROMANCE

Tucked away in a quiet corner of South Kensington lies Blakes, the vision of my namesake, Anouska Hempel. Regarded as the very first boutique hotel it maintains its opulent, original air and is full to the brim with Asian antiques collected on Anouska's travels.

Its dark beguiling exterior belies the lightness and delicacy of the hotel's Corfu suite. A perfect spot to lay a weary head or outstretch ones weary limbs.

Read on for a selection of handpicked pieces that have the spirit of the Corfu suite...
