David Carter’s Queen Ann home, one of four 1717 terraced houses in the heart of London’s East End, is not just dramatic. It feels almost like a set, a bohemian home where louche parties might have been held, with artists smoking opium pipes, partially frocked women lounging on fake-fur sofas. Given that the London interior decorator and dandy bought the 2,500sq ft home only eight years ago in a state of total dereliction, its reinvention is miraculous. Previously, if he looked up from the basement kitchen he could see through the roof. But the Grade II listed building has been brought back to life in a spectacularly theatrical way, each room filled with precious treasures from every continent and era.
