Resisting Chintz From the Reverse Penthouse in Brighton, UK
Brighton is where London traditionally dangles its legs in the sea, and cool, contemporary, far-cry-from-the-traditional-chintzy-B&B Square offers a very sleek version of a Brighton weekend. Square, naturally enough, is not at all square. There's no nameplate, and its clean, contemporary interiors offer a harmonious mix of white furniture, greenish glass, and shiny wooden floors in various shades of toast. And the 'reverse penthouse’— its pièce de résistance—offers loft‑style living in an airy basement stretching the length of the building.
