213 and 215 King's Road are a pair of terraced houses on King's Road, Chelsea, London, built in 1720. English Heritage has designated them a Grade II* listed building.

In the 1920s, No. 213 was inhabited by leading interior decorator Syrie Maugham. There, in 1927 she created her "all white room", decorated in various shades of white, which became widely known and imitated in fashionable circles. Her husband, the novelist Somerset Maugham, briefly also lived there. A rival interior decorator, Sibyl Colefax, lived next door to her at Argyll House, No. 211.

213 has a blue plaque to film director Sir Carol Reed, who lived there from 1948 until his death in 1976.

215 was the residence in 1771 of the composer Thomas Arne and has a tablet commemorating Dame Ellen Terry who lived there from 1904 to 1920.
