A Ferrari red piano inspired this stunning penthouse makeover. A “captain of industry” commissioned an Edelweiss grand piano in glossy Ferrari red. A piano colored so bold and that he loved so much, he was inspired. He decided to hire interior designers to redecorate his entire London duplex to match it. Edelweiss Pianos spokesperson, Ross Norman, says: “The owner of the penthouse fell in love with our self-playing grand piano and ordered it in a fiery Ferrari red colour. We delivered it to his 22nd floor duplex— funnily enough the setting for the party scene in the Ab Fab movie. In situ, the owner decided it wasn’t quite red enough. We happily returned the piano to our Cambridge studios and refinished it in RAL 3020—four shades redder than the classic Ferrari red.” Delighted with the new colour, the owner asked Hill House Interiors to base an interior design scheme around the piano. The resulting efforts produced a…

From Country Garden to Sloane Street Marriage for Susan, to the renowned Sir Eustace Pulbrook, then Chairman of Lloyds, was a social whirl, with friendships and connections made all over the UK, Europe and the USA. Following his unexpected death, Lady Pulbrook…
