In a bustling city like Bengaluru, you need some peace and calm after a gruelling day at work. The city’s’ infrastructure in growing at a fast pace and having a home in one of the quieter corners is a godsend.
Our client, Uday Kumar, approached us to design this apartment that he had acquired and now wanted to give it a new face. Livspace interior designer, Smitha Mole, whose speciality is designing kitchens, took up the challenge and decided to give him his dream home. This cozy apartment is essentially done up in white and blue while every detail is taken care of. You should not miss taking a tour of this gorgeous property.
A White Welcome!
The entrance to this cozy apartment is as bright as it can get, quite literally! Smitha, the designer, has given a shoe-cum-display rack to create a foyer of sorts. It also acts as a divider between the foyer and the rest of the home. The residents can use it to display artefacts and store their shoes in the cabinets.
A Living that Resonates Peace!
The living room is done up in chirpy shades of blue and white! The wall behind the sofa was conceptualised by Smitha, to be created into an accent wall with grey and light yellow colours. It’s a perfect break from the whites and blues that rule this space. Two abstract print ottomans play match and act as additional seating.
The TV unit is a functional unit built in slate and white hues. Featuring open shelves for display and cabinets for storage, this is the perfect piece of furniture for a compact home. A glossy white panel acts as the backdrop, while strip light light up the corners of the same!
A Dining Room That Radiates!
Anyone who walks into this home is floored by the superbly designed dining room! Who would think that such a compact home could have such a statement dining area. The mirrored wall panel opens up the space and reflects maximum light, while the trims on the wall give it a European feel. The dining table is a six seater, with a bench on one side, to provide for extra seating, just in case!
Modular Kitchens Redefined!
Modular kitchen designs is the expertise of Smitha and she excels in this field. This kitchen borrows colours from the living room, to maintain harmony, while the modules provided are super functional. The rolling shutter hides away all the electrical appliances, while corner units, drawers and cabinets take care of storage. The backsplash, although busy, is a treat to the eyes!
A Functional Bedroom
The bedroom in this snug apartment might be space-crunched, but that did not stop Smitha from giving it a designer spin. She gave the wall behind the bed, a stone finish panel in the niche, and matched it with the blue and white theme. It has LED lights on the sides that light it up beautifully. The herringbone pattern on the headboard of the dark wood bed looks intriguing, while the frosty white wardrobes with drawers and a full mirror seal the deal!
“Uday gave me complete freedom on the designing front, and trusted me completely with my decisions. I loved playing around with mixing and matching styles to give the home a unique look!”
