Roksanda Ilincic has created the beautiful interiors for a King’s Cross penthouse

19/06/2019

Roksanda Ilincic has brought her eye for colour, artistic knowledge and textural depth to interiors for the first time, creating the internal aesthetic for a duplex penthouse in King’s Cross. The designer, who used to live in the area herself, has personally selected artworks, a mix of mid-century and post-modern furniture, eclectic textiles, lighting and ceramics to produce a stylish, yet warm and feminine space. With three bedrooms, a sunken courtyard garden and a feature staircase that leads to a rooftop terrace, the three-floor penthouse will serve as interiors inspiration even if you’re not in the market to buy. The apartment is available to purchase, fully-furnished, for £7,750,000.

Here, Ilincic talks us through the inspirations behind her vision.

 

1.

“Art and architecture are consistently starting point of my own collections and while designing the penthouse it was easy to translate the codes and DNA of my brand into interiors and curation of this wonderful space.”

MICHAEL SINCLAIR

 

2. The Entrance

“It was important for me that the apartment is immediately welcoming as you enter it, with balance between timelessness and modernity.”

MICHAEL SINCLAIR

 

3. Dining room

“A Swiss performance artist painted this mural by hand. I wanted to use this project as a platform to highlight the incredible work of female artists, architects and makers, both established and emerging, whose vision inspires me.”

MICHAEL SINCLAIR

 

4. The Study

“I love books and I love reading. I spent a long time curating this selection, trying to find books by and about female artists”

 

5. Living Room

“I wanted the living room and the penthouse to feel like a sanctuary, a place of protection which provides solace, comfort and that also inspires you.”

 

6. The master bedroom

“This room is where you can feel my full sense of colour, for example, in this area where the bed is there’s four different shades of red. I wanted a feeling of femininity around the bed. The linen book on the side is by my one of my favourite art teachers, her influence is seen throughout especially with this bedroom.”

 

7. The dressing room

“The dressing area has some pieces from my collection that blend with the surrounding.“

 

8. The snug

“Lina Bo Bardi was always my great inspiration. There is a hidden little room on the lower level that feels like a sanctuary and hosts my favourite Lina’s chair – that moment of tranquillity is my favourite place in the apartment.”

 

9. The roof garden

“The penthouse offers access to the roof garden that overlooks Coal’s Yard.”
