Could this be London’s most stylish penthouse? A look inside interior designer Sophie Ashby’s latest venture

By  Jessica Doyle 

hen a new penthouse comes on to the market in London, the selling point is usually the jaw-dropping view. But in the case of Capco’s latest offering, which tops off its Floral Court Collection in Covent Garden, the panoramic vistas from the four roof terraces have to compete with the impeccably dressed interiors.

Inside, the 5,000 square-foot space, which includes three bedrooms, a huge open-plan living space, plus separate dining, study and games rooms, has been furnished by the interior designer Sophie Ashby, and couldn’t be further from the bland, greige decor usually adopted for newbuilds. Here, there is colour, pattern and so many objects it’s hard to know where to look first.
