Expect the unexpected in this Salarpuria Celesta apartment in Bangalore. For busy couple Kritika Modi and Piyush Agrawal who run a financial consulting firm, it comes with no surprise that their home should resonate with their young, adventurous spirit and Livspace interior designer Shafiqua gave them exactly that by treading the path less taken.
With intriguing patterns and unconventional nature-inspired hues, she carved interiors that feel endlessly inviting. Modern furnishings set the contemporary tone. The result is, as Kritika’s guests say, a model apartment that stays with you long after you have left.
The entertainment area complete with floating shelves and a crisp console table boasts minimalist design, leaving the swirling browns of the accent wall to take center stage. Also, it pairs beautifully with the wooden veneer false ceiling.
Plush, sink-in sofas provide utmost comfort and the couple love to spend most of their time here. Blackout and sheer curtains next to the dining area help regulate natural light.
Subtle and eccentric, this dining set comes with a bench. It can easily accommodate more than two people and can also be used in the living room or at the foot any bed if required.
Recognizing the challenges of a small master bedroom, Shafiqua opened up the space and gave it a refreshing twist with a pear green accent wall. The mirrored surface of the sliding-door wardrobe reflects light, enhancing the airy feel of the room. A bed with a rich blue chenille headboard was chosen to complete the posh look.
From the striated backsplash to the cabinets to the wooden flooring, the kitchen is doused in delicious neutrals. Ample storage options in the form of tall unit, cutlery rack, drawers for heavy-bottomed vessels, pull out, see-through cabinets, up the functionality factor of the kitchen. Cooking in this sleek kitchen is so convenient and fun that Kritika says they’ve stopped going out for meals altogether!
A blend of fiery orange and brick red on this bedroom’s accent wall defines its lively personality. The wardrobe with loft, side tables and drawers under the bed provide ample storage.
The guest bedroom beautifully balances the dark wood finish of the wardrobe and false ceiling with a striped pastel accent wall. The simple shelf can be easily converted into a dressing unit with a mirror.
“To make an unforgettable style statement, I chose a fresh, unique color palette for every room. I’m so happy with the outcome!”
