The interior-design brief for this project, given to us, was – Dream Home. The owners were looking for a home so designed that it reflected them, their eclectic tastes and their inspirations in every little detail. Our team went all out to give form to this lyrical dream home, with great attention to detail, and sourcing just the right elements in for form of furniture design, artwork to complete the picture.
The entryway – The entryway is an elegant and charming play of light and texture – The boldly textured wall, hosting a stunning panel of wooden carved in distressed finish, custom-made by an artisan in Jodhpur, with a beautiful bench made out of a live edge-wood, highlighted with beautiful lighting.
Drawing room – The entry gives way to a very cosy sitting area on the right. A spectacular distressed blue chiffonier, handcrafted in Jodhpur, by talented artisans, commands instant attention. The room is adorned by comfortable couches in tan brown, and a centre table made out of a beautiful piece of live edge-wood. The industrial chandelier hanging atop from the wooden sectioned ceiling fills up the room with the a golden glow, giving it a most inviting and warm feeling, which is the design focus of this room.
Dining & Family Area – The design theme for this room was led by the idea to have a space for the while family to enjoy. Zones have been created in the living cum dining area that can be used by the children and the parents equally. The dining table has been one of our most treasured pieces for this home. A furniture design company that uses wood from naturally felled trees during the cyclone in Chennai 4 years back and build them into the most beautiful pieces for your home, was entrusted to create this beautiful piece of furniture. The dining table is a combination of gorgeous piece of wood, with an epoxy resin blue river joining the 2 big logs of wood. This breath-taking blue was also replicated in the leather of the custom made dining chairs and it is part of the various tones of blues that keep popping up throughout the home. One of the walls in this area has been transformed into a beautiful reading nook, complete with a book shelf, cosy seating and clever lighting. The opposite wall is a contrast with serene white chest of drawers which hosts a striking custom painting of bright pink bougainvillea.
A swing has been installed in the living area, which is a contemporary take on the traditional swing. The swing hangs from the ceiling on steel cables used by crane.
The bedrooms – Each of the bedrooms has its own unique interior design elements, style and features that stand out. The master bed has been adorned by elegant cane work on the head board which we encased in glass to preserve the beauty and keep away the dust. The cane work brings a taste of old-school, reminiscence of the colonial style. The guest bedroom has been done up in calm pastel hues, with a functional and beautiful work desk. A custom made chevron pattern design on the chest of drawers provides a lovely pop to the room. The children’s bedroom has accents in lovely teal and a gorgeous blue walk in wardrobe.
The house boasts of a beautiful selection of custom-made furniture, hand crafted and ethically sourced.
