A throwback to a time gone by, this home is every bit ethereal as is modern. Towering colonial pillars, terracotta tiles and earthy hues take centre stage in this timeless #LivspaceHome, while storage and comfort take on a modern quality.
The design replicates the warm aesthetics of the exteriors by sticking to a natural palette and soothing textures in the home. A picture-perfect assembly that binds together every detail is doused in a snug and inviting tone.
The capacious foyer unit brings in a contemporary note while adding personality and colour to the entryway. The wine red and stone grey combination on the entryway storage really grabs your attention as you enter the home.
A Mindful Pick
Iesha Parekh, Livspace designer, put forth a tremendous design for the display rack which is quite the blend of storage and display and looks stunning too! The shelves hold all of the travel curios the family has collected during their time overseas.
Although the furniture is a mix of many colours, including a couple of accent chairs, it still falls in place beautifully and gives the living room an eclectic touch.
Sturdy and Stylish
The dining room sports teak wood furniture that comfortably seats 8 and is solid in structure. The sturdy setup adds a traditional element to contrast with the modern look of the kitchen. The seating also overlooks the organic garden the room opens out to.
Touch of Class
Making use of the space below the staircase, a stylish TV unit has been placed which enlivens the mortar and brick background.
Soothing the Senses
The master bedroom is a visual treat with soothing textures, warm wooden notes and a little pop of colour. The prints chosen elevate the style statement of the room.
Keeping the tone light and airy, the wardrobes have a light grey velvet finish. Spacious and handy, sticking to clean lines has made movement easy around the room.
Play with Colours
The brilliant blue gives the room an edgy look, diving away from the soothing palette that the home dons. The introduction of whites eases the dominating effect.
The accessories are mindfully picked to adapt to the family’s storage needs. Although the design seems simple, organisation becomes effortless and efficient. From pullouts with a multifunctional insert to a trouser and tie holder, this wardrobe is a perfect assembly for all your sartorial needs.
Space to Unwind
With a muted palette, this bedroom brings in a feel of spring with florals and greenery grabbing the spotlight. A gracious theme that mellows down stress and strife after an exhausting day you’ll want this for your home too.
The high gloss wardrobe in Ivory Velvet and Pista work in tandem to bring about a muted yet radiant look. It provides ample storage to tuck away all the necessary items.
Bold and Bright
When navy blue and wooden finishes come together, the room really has a playful but regal look. This room’s design unfolds in simple yet functional furniture.
Sleek wardrobes and a compact study find their way to this upbeat room. While it may not seem like a bookshelf, the storage is spacious enough to house books and stationery.
Simplicity at its Best
The family room brings back the ethnic details with wooden flooring and a sturdy chest of drawers. The simple setting is pepped up with a blue recliner and footstool. The spacious setting makes for a nice gathering with add-on cushions and floor seating.
Back to the Roots
The balcony is a treat for the sore eyes. Mangalorean tiles, colonial pillars with a countryside seating offers a break from the modernist city life. Surrounded by greenery and a stunning view, this is a lovely place to lounge with a cup of tea.
The classy show extends to the washroom with mirrored vanity units keeping the place uncluttered. A stylish addition to break away from the matte texture of the tiles.
“The architecture of the home inspired the theme of the interiors. I always looked forward to designing a home with such earthy aesthetics.”
