Design Tour | A Suburban Apartment Filled with Edgy, Modish Details
Replete with muted tones and slim pieces of furniture, this sprawling Brigade Cosmopolis apartment has undercurrents of mid-century modern aesthetics to it. The furniture has tapered legs and clean profiles reminding us of its Scandinavian heritage.
Nestled in the developing neighbourhood of Whitefield, this three bedroom apartment employs a mix of natural elements: plenty of natural light, wood tones and exposed bricks. The combination of cove and pendant lights help bring the contemporary art and decor pieces into the foreground. This cozy space is dominated by a soothing palette with a motley of textures to give it an edgy, modern vibe.
Muted tones give the living room a serene and pragmatic air. The throw pillows, monochrome vases and silver lampshade add some dimension to the space.
The plushly padded classic beige couch paired with a contrasting navy ottoman is the hallmark of comfortable seating. The exposed steel legs of the coffee and side tables mirror the edgy installation, while the champagne drapes take cue from its warm oak notes.
We love how the cove panelling, behind the couch, gives an off-the-wall welcome. Not to forget the lush foliage in the balcony with the outdoor cane pieces that will turn Bangalore’s gloomy rains into ideal lounging weather.
The pink lily wallpaper affords an earthiness to this otherwise mature dining space.
With sensible wooden choices and subtle pink lilies, the dining space embraces a warmer, cozier aesthetic The versatile crockery and bar unit fits seamlessly in. The cove lights encourage a delectable mood, while the beige rug underfoot ties all the elements together.
An industrial twist
A motley of textures and colours is what sets this room apart.
From clean, modern lines, the guest bedroom deviates from the rest of the home and enjoys subtle industrial aspects. The space is layered with whites and greys. The exposed brick wall ties in beautifully with the white furniture pieces and stark pendants. The grey-denim washed rug and slate accent wall allow the azure tones of the button tufted headboard to stand out. The highlight, however, has to be the ivory Barcelona recliner with the picturesque receding horizon as the backdrop.
Wisps of the Orient
The panelled oak wall not only acts as a headboard but can also house exquisite decor pieces.
The master has an ethereal vibe that champions oriental undertones. A host of open shelves around the wall unit and below the TV unit brings out the emphasis on minimalism. The overplay of whites with warm oak is punctured by grey and navy linen. The all-white louvred shutters add a lovely layer of texture to the sizable windows The mirror reflects the cluster of trees outside and infuses the space with freshness, making this master a pleasure to wake up in.
A practical and pretty kitchen
The ergonomics of this modular kitchen coupled with modern day appliances make it every cook’s dream.
The modular kitchen has a colossal expanse to it thanks to the L-shape countertop and extended drying area. Owing to its spaciousness, the kitchen boasts of deep mahogany on the bottom and becomes lighter as the eye travels up. The tortilla cabinets allow the warm ochre and cedar notes of the backsplash to stand out.
With a snug drying area, plenty of cabinetry and a built-in hob and chimney, this kitchen is every bit practical as it is pretty.
