Over 2000 thousand concrete tiles and lots of colour-blocking in this 2 bedroom penthouse for two chefs in London’s Kings Cross designed by Rhonda Drakeford. Which seems right on point with the designer’s bio: Her work is fearless and exciting — playfully and skilfully mixing international and historical references, strong colour themes, texture and pattern. A deep respect for order and function is offset with joyful twists and sensory surprises. A strong narrative thread runs through Rhonda’s output, which is gleefully referential and wedded to concepts that are subversive and purposefully playful. A love of contrast and experimental materials and colour palettes have become a signature part of her bold portfolio.
