The objective was to create a space that speaks of a clutter free design, creating a perfect blend between warm and subtle luxury and timeless geometry. Warm browns add up in the form of wood and veneer textures and the use of mirrors multiplies the space with details that are fairly symmetrical. Calligraphy art adorns the walls and wrap the space up in a subtle warmth. A curved arch goes on to form the sofa panel on all three sides of a textured wall with indirect lighting to add to the contentment. Hints of black metal and dull brass are used to accentuate the wooden elements.
Spread over an area of 1800 sqft, this residential apartment is a spacious 3BHK. The living and dining area is complementary to an open kitchen space and the three bedrooms are connected with a wide passage. The design revolves around two words given to us by the clients: Simple yet luxurious. The objective was to achieve the simplest form of luxury. Home to a family of six, the spaces needed to be created in a manner where the house looks spaced out yet cosy at the same time.
The L shaped living and dining space is connected with a TV unit that hosts a range of storage units, but importantly acts as a visual partition between the seating area and the passage towards the bedroom. The wall adjacent to the sofa panel is a backdrop to a cosy fabric seating bench and also beautifully hosts a huge black metal clock. The dining area is carefully reflected in the mirror wall in front of it adding depth and making the space look bigger.
All three bedrooms follow a different design route. The grandparents’ room is four walls bathed in a subtle beige tone with rich brown upholstery on the headboard for a hint of luxury and mirror shutters on the wardrobe so as to not make the space look very compact. The daughters’ room is a quirky space wrapped up in light wood and white textures. The headboard panel is a wooden panel with symmetrical grooves to add detail. It was created to conceal the column and beam offsets on the wall and the depth it created gave room to a niche with lights housed in it that can host personal collectibles. The wall opposite to the bed is a feature wall; it breaks into two by the tall wooden panel that incorporates the door leading to the bathroom. The right hand side of the wall is adorned by poetry in black frames against a white brick wall. The left hand side has a sleek black metal bookshelf and a metal mesh for Polaroids to add character to the space.
The master bedroom is wrapped up in shades of brown as it needed to look mature and relaxed at the same time. The headboard panel is a combination of hard surfaces like Oakwood veneer on all three sides and a soft light fabric headboard in between. The study table has a wooden fluted panel to add extra detail. The warm circular wall lights create a homely glow as the evening sky grows.
