Blakes was created out of two Victorian mansions in South Kensington by Anouska Hempel, the London hotelier and internationally renowned designer. Blakes is now established as totally unique, the model for the 'fashionable small hotel' in London.
Blakes is a personal statement about what design can achieve. Each of the 50 bedrooms has been designed by Anouska Hempel, every detail reconstructed to provide the ideal blend of colour, texture and atmosphere.
The colour schemes are daring, stunning and dramatic, all designed with a vibrant spirit, the passion for travel and life as it should be, romantic and thought provoking. Black and mustard, rich cardinal reds, lavender, vanilla, washes of tea rose and a room that is white on white, offering style and elegance to the discerning traveller. In the business of making dreams a reality, unable to accept the ordinary Anouska Hempel is creating a world of excellence one room at a time.
Relying primarily on word of mouth recommendation, Blakes has continued to maintain its position as unique and original. The current refurbishments are ongoing, under the highly creative and ever critical eye of its owner, and have to be seen to be fully appreciated.
