We Love: The Zetter Townhouse

Dark sumptuous colours, Gainsborough silks and antique brass fittings all contribute to the eccentric feel of this Georgian townhouse hotel in London's Marylebone.

Stepping into the Zetter Townhouse in Marylebone, you could be forgiven for thinking that you had stumbled into the home of a wealthy English dignitary. The whimsical interiors are the work of design luminary Russell Sage – the creative force behind the original Clerkenwell hotel – who took inspiration from the collections of Sir John Soane.
