I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho which opened last year and combines an amazingly central location with a very relaxed spacious environment. The interior design by co-owner Kit Kemp is fantastic with lots of colour, texture and eye-catching accessories which are cleverly combined to keep the overall feel calm and inviting. Spaces are superbly lit and cleverly move from the cosy feel of the library and drawing room to the buzz of the restaurant and on the drama of the basement bar and cinema room. I really enjoyed my visit (lunch with a great friend, loosely disguised as a business meeting) and am already looking for a reason to return.
The main restaurant
Garden room spaces off the main restaurant
An ingenious and beautiful timepiece in the lobby
Clever accessorising throughout
The drawing room
The bar being set up for an event
The rather fabulous cinema room
And yes, finally, I did take a picture of the ladies cloakroom.
