We don’t typically post renderings but when it’s this fabulous I’m making an exception. Utkan Gunerkan is an Istanbul-born architect based in Milan, Italy, and this bathroom and kitchen are for projects in Puerto Vallarta, my favourite place on earth. They are SO much fun and graphic and creative. If I could make these come true in my home I’d die. And I think it was meant to be seeing as I just replaced my dining room chandelier with one that is turquoise, a colour I never use.
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on point with the designer’s bio: Her work is fearless and exciting — playfully and skilfully mixing international and historical references, strong colour themes, texture and pattern.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.

Pinch me because I must be dreaming! This space is beyond incredible. The scoop: During Milan Design Week 2019, Elisa Ossino and Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer, creative directors and founders of H+O, revealed their multi-room apartment installation, Perfect Darkness. A new concept of home where tiles take centre stage of the project. Besides covering walls and floors tiles are featured in each room serving as structural and architectonic elements. Elisa Ossino Studio designed the interiors of the apartment. The choice of colors, in collaboration with File Under Pop, emphasises the vibration of light highlighting the sequence of environments in a continuous transition from darker to brighter spaces. The space is characterized by carefully selected furniture, objects and art pieces by international award-winning design studios who all share a passion for creativity and innovation: Artcoustic, Astep, Boffi, De Castelli, De-Tech, Dresswall, Fantini, File Under Pop, Formani, Frama, H+O, House of Finn Juhl, Menu, Nesite, Officine Saffi, Pitt Cooking, Salvatori, Stine Goya and Tubes.
