The focal point of this London Penthouse designed by fashion designer Roksanda Ilincic is the huge geometric mural in the dining area, hand-painted by Swiss artist Caroline Denervaud. Featuring blush-pink, sandy beige and navy blue forms, the wall provides a warm backdrop to the room’s pale marble table and breakfast island.
Simple white cabinetry and brass hardware have been incorporated in the adjacent kitchen. Ilincic wanted to create a dream space that doesn’t necessarily feel like a dining room, somewhere where you want to spend a long time.
Other than a couple of bright yellow fibreglass chairs, the colour palette here is kept neutral with a curved white sofa, floor-to-ceiling timber bookshelf and perforated cane seats by Swiss architect Pierre Jeanneret.
Pale pink curtains hung in front of the full-height windows lend the space a rose-tinted hue.
A short flight of stairs leads down to the sleeping quarters. The master bedroom features a burgundy-framed bed by Italian architect Tobia Scarpa, as well as a spherical floor lamp. The apartment is set inside one of three 19th-century gasholders that Wilkinson Eyre and Jonathan Tuckey Design converted into luxury residences early last year.
Host to 145 apartments and 9 penthouses, which are are just a stone’s throw from other recent King’s Cross. Ilincic has included furnishings, books and decorative ornaments from her favourite selection of female creatives throughout the apartment, all of which can be purchased with the property.
