An Entrance Interior Design for DLF Icon Home, Gurgaon

The foyer design serves as a trailer to the interiors of the rest of the house

The entrance interior design for the DLF Icon home has a unique lighting that is practical and also integral to the design. When the door is open, the asymmetric lights on the wall have depth just enough to avoid touching the door. And when the door is shut, the lights create a smooth transition from the door to the seating. The round mirror charmingly rounds up the entryway design and also highlights the way in which different elements bring this 4BHK interior design in DLF Icon together.

DLF Icon Living Room Design in Gurgaon

The living room has a beautiful setup where the straight sofas border the circular cluster of tables

This DLF living room design in Gurgaon has contrasting shapes, as is evident in the different furniture pieces arranged through the living area. The false ceiling too is designed to mimic the furniture; it has linear borders and a circular island in the middle, and all of it is emphasised by the cove lights. The walls reflect this contrast as well, with the wallpaper on the right a stark contrast to the left wall, which has a metal decor piece with circular floral motifs in the middle.

A pleasing balance of colours and shapes across the living and dining areas

What you see is a carefully planned balance of geometries achieved in this DLF living room in Gurgaon, which makes it pleasing to the eye. There is also a balanced distribution of the colour blue in the room. 

DLF Icon Dining Room Interior Design 

A spacious dining room with customised crockery storage

A good design is one where all the elements come together in a seamless whole. And that is what Shruti achieved with the dining room in the house. Here, everything works in visual harmony. The different shades used on two of the walls find an echo in the dual colours of the dining chairs that surround the six-seater dining table.

The family also planned the crockery unit according to their usage in this DLF Icon dining room interior design. They got display cabinets as well regular cabinets to fit their needs perfectly. It is important to remember the lifestyle and preferences of the homeowners at all times during the project, which is just what Shruti did.

Kitchen Interior Design for DLF Icon, Gurgaon

The blue Peranakan Moroccan backsplash tiles drove the rest of the kitchen design

There’s no rule that needs you to decide your kitchen laminates first. Akshay and his family were sure of the backsplash tiles before the rest of the finishes, so they started their designing process from there. The choice of blue and white laminates for the kitchen cabinets complements the stunning Peranakan Moroccan tiles. 

A parallel kitchen with profile lights under the upper cabinets to increase task efficiency

The parallel kitchen has many modular units like the tall storage, built-in appliances cabinet, roller shutter, wicker basket and more. The family wanted to avoid any civil and hacking work. They stuck with the builder-given plumbing and electrical points to plan the dry, wet and hot areas of the kitchen. Hence, a kitchen interior design for DLF, Gurgaon that utilises the space in the best yet, economical way.

Bedroom Interior Design for DLF Icon, Gurgaon

According to Ridhima, the family came prepared with ideas and requirements for their new 4BHK interior design in DLF, Gurgaon. She says once the final 3D of the project was ready, the family was happy and barely made any changes. And this was a pleasant experience because it doesn’t happen very often that the 3D design translates to reality so precisely. 

The Master Bedroom

Pastel pink is used as an accent to enhance the muted elegance of the master bedroom

While continuing the beige colour from the common areas of this interior design in DLF Icon Gurgaon, the family wanted to add a soft pink colour to give the space an elegant vibe. The colours in this room evoke the feeling of comfort and peace.

The floral wallpaper is bordered by two white panels that continue to the ceiling

The requirement for space to store seasonal clothes, sheets and blankets is real in most places in north India due to extreme weather conditions. Hence, the family made a smart decision to go for hydraulic storage beds that can store heavy and big items such as bed sheets and blankets.

The wardrobes and the lofts were designed to cover the entire wall to maximise storage in the room

The lofts in this home interior design in DLF, Gurgaon could store seasonal clothing that one may use only during winters. And regarding the ongoing work-from-home culture, they also chose to build TV-cum-study-units in all the four rooms. 

The Son’s Bedroom

The accent walls in this room have blue and grey colours

Akshay’s son prefers darker colours to lighter, soft ones. Hence, the two accent walls in his room feature grey and blue hues. These colours promote the sense of calm and balance and are a great alternative to light, pastel colours.

A small bench next to the window becomes a special spot for the son in his room

Apart from this, the family, keeping in mind their storage needs, added in a hydraulic bed, wardrobe with lofts and a TV-cum-study-unit in this room as well. To personalise the room a little, their son has a bench next to the window that offers extra seating without taking a lot of space. 

The Guest Bedroom

The guest bedroom has storage and study units similar to other bedrooms

Their daughter lives away but visits them often. Hence, the guest room has similar storage to make their daughter feel at home when she is visiting. The colours, however, are neutral and similar to the common areas of the house. 

Wooden trims are used on the wall to create a geometric pattern

Additionally, the wall treatment in this room is also neutral to appeal to a more general instead of a personal taste. The wardrobe, like the other rooms in this 4BHK interior design in DLF Icon, is white and has lofts. These details — the similarities and the differences — help to establish a single identity of the whole house while also cleverly distinguishing one room from another.
