TV Presenter Layne Redman has always been drawn to properties near the sea. “I am always searching for new and exciting properties to live in or renovate,” he says, “and also have a rented property in Barbados which happens to be two doors down from Brian May (from Queen)’s place.”
The house was decorated by the artist and interior decorator Coby Meyndorff , who rents the home from Layne. Painting and styling were completed in around two months.
The main – and perhaps ironic – inspiration for the interiors of the property in Dubai was a European house in the countryside, complete with an oft-played piano. Signed photographs of sporting celebrities line the walls, alongside a one-off painting of the cartoon Top Cat, given to Layne as a birthday present. Despite having a healthy property portfolio, Layne admits candidly, “This house has always been one of my favourites.”
