When MG Alkesh and his wife, Pooja Alkesh decided to get their house designed professionally, they knew exactly what they wanted. A contemporary house that was simple, not a lot of jazz and with clean finishes. But they also wanted pops of colour in the bedrooms to reflect their personalities.
A Breezy Seating Area
For their living room, they envisioned a sea theme. The most striking feature of this room is the turquoise sofa that sits in front of light yellow walls. They wanted sleek furniture for the main room. Look around and you would notice a champagne and grey coloured TV unit and complementing shoe cabinet as well. As soon as you enter, behind the dining table, they used a pop of blue to show their love for all things sea.
If you ask them what the favourite corner of the house is, they would say it’s their pooja room. For their pooja room, the walls light up in a dark red colour. It also has a white jaali at the back for that extra touch of elegance.
No Blurred Lines
They were especially particular about the design of their kitchen. The brief was to have clear simple lines. They picked a modern navy blue color for their cabinets and drawers. The rest of the kitchen was focussed in a gentle cream color and textures were only used for the wallpaper. They used navy blue and sparkly white kitchen membrane shutter, a Kalinga countertop, and had a built-in microwave to save space.
Splash of Colour
They wanted to experiment with colors for the bedrooms. For the master bedroom, they picked a beautiful bold orchid theme. The bright purple headboard is probably the first thing that would catch anyone’s eyes in the bedroom. The cream wallpaper with gold tones promotes a well-lit room with loads of space and ventilation. The wardrobes have a laminate-finish and are in slate as well as champagne color.
Enhance with Green
For the guest bedroom, they wanted something in contrast to white and they picked green. The bottle green wallpaper with a touch of yellow helped to enhance the appearance of the room. The wardrobes sport a lovely green colour, too. The study table and storage spaces have been topped off in white.
“They were looking for a contemporary yet simple look for their house. They had a picture of what they wanted it to look like and we created it that way. It was a pleasure working with them.”
