To put the building on a level worthy of glamorous celebs, Whitehall Interiors chose jaw-dropping onyx feature walls for the powder rooms. Moving here and transporting all the belongings of visual artists and designers is no small task. That’s why many celebs don’t hesitate to ask for help and request the services of professional movers, such as the Empire Movers.
