A common misconception among homeowners is that interior design is expensive. However, good design can be cost-effective too, as you’ll be able to see from this beautiful home in Cleo County, Noida. Leena and Pankaj had a strict budget which had to be adhered to. As such, our designer, Seema Joshi, ensured the couple got their dream home, within a budget of only ₹11 lakhs!

At first, the couple approached Livspace to only get their false ceiling and living room done. However, they were so impressed by our work that they decided to get their pooja room and master bedroom designed as well!

What Went Into Creating Leena and Pankaj’s Dream Home at Cleo County, Noida

Leena and Pankaj’s Requirement #1: Pops of Colours

A neutral base with vibrant pops

Leena and Pankaj wanted some bright colours in their home. However, they wanted the overall look to be minimal.

Livspace Solution #1: Minimal Base With Vibrant Blue Pops

  • A minimal base, as per Leena and Pankaj’s needs
  • The furniture, ceiling and flooring feature neutral colours
  • However, vibrant blue curtains and a soft blue accent wall add a pop
  • Additionally, gold accents provide a touch of glam

Leena and Pankaj’s Requirement #2: An Element of Freshness

Hanging planters in the living room

The couple wanted some greenery in their home in the form of plants.

Livspace Solution #2: Hanging Planters in the Living Room

  • Hanging planters against the texture-painted wall
  • This adds an element of freshness and is a unique alternative to regular plants

Leena and Pankaj’s Requirement #3: A Minimal Partition

A simple yet glam partition dividing the living and dining areas

Considering the open layout of their home, Leena wanted a partition that would help in displaying decor but not segregate the living and dining areas. However, she was very precise about one thing: she wanted a simple partition unit which was light and minimal.

Livspace Solution #3: A Partition Made of Glass

  • Glass for the partition creates a light appearance
  • Hints of gold to elevate the glam factor

Leena and Pankaj’s Requirement #4: A Spacious Pooja Room

A holy space to sit and meditate

A pooja room is a must in most Indian homes! Leena too wanted a separate pooja space, a place that could accommodate multiple people during havans, prayer sessions and festivals.

Livspace Solution #4: Servant’s Area Converted Into a Pooja Room

  • Seema broke down the separate servant’s area and closed the entrance
  • She created a private nook for the pooja room

At first glance, Leena and Pankaj’s master bedroom stands out due to its simplicity and elegance. However, there are so many design secrets hidden in this room!

  • Pankaj often needs to work from home. During the 1st phase we gave them a modular TV unit
  • Once we started the 2nd phase, we attached a modular study unit in the same material and colours for a seamless look
  • Additionally, the beams on the false ceiling were uneven. To save the height, Seema created a cove in a tapered shape instead of opting for multiple levels

Budget Buy: Laminate TV unit, wardrobe and study unit.

#4: The Divine Pooja Room

Always ensure your pooja unit has storage space for samagri

Our designer Seema tells us that for the pooja room, Leena came to her with an image and wanted the exact same design. Once Seema delivered the completed unit, Leena loved how the design turned out!

  • The pooja unit stands out due to the vast number of finishes
  • While the lower storage area is modular laminate, the rest is customised
  • The veneer side panels and jaali partition give this unit a traditional look
  • Moreover, the side panels also feature acrylic mirror-finish strips
  • The backpanel has a Duco finish as well as some texture paint
