Indraneel and Pranjoli refer to themselves as probashi Bengali.True to the term, they keep their roots alive no matter where they go. Having lived in New Delhi for a long time, they wanted facets of their Bengali tradition to find its way into their new home design.
An NID graduate and a designer by profession, Pranjoli had some amazing design ideas up her sleeve. Add to it Indraneel’s aesthetic sense, this power couple knew what they exactly wanted for their home. Filled with exotic artwork and strikingly distinct elements, this home is inspiring for anyone living away from home.
When Livspace designer Disha Bafna met this couple, their brief was clear – build them a home they could come back to at the end of the day. Travelling on work frequently made them sick of hotels. So all they wanted was soothing colours and some stand-out elements for their abode. And Disha’s designs made every corner a conversation starter. See for yourself how this home came to life!
A Striking Entrance
The entrance to this home is a statement in itself. It’s hard to miss the eclectic collection of masks on the foyer wall. The couple love collecting masks as souvenirs from their travels around the world. And Disha found the perfect spot to make these masks a focal point, picking up the vibe of the entryway.
A Dollop of Sunshine
Since Pranjoli comes from a creative background, her colour sense was impeccable. While the family knew that they wanted classic colours for their home, they were open to the idea of adding pops of colour too. Hence, you see this tasteful mustard coloured loveseat that becomes a part of their living room furniture.
Another feature that they insisted on was an exposed brick accent wall. So, guided by Disha, they zeroed in on this amazing texture paint by Asian Paints. Also, do not miss the lovely canvas, painted by Pranjoli herself, with Bengali script on it that says “Aamra shobai raja”, meaning ‘we all are kings’. Fits right in, don’t you think?
A Vibrant Balcony
The attached balcony borrows colours from the living room and sports pops of a darker shade of yellow in planters and the railing. Having a young child at home, a large planter has been installed for safety. It blocks her from going anywhere near the railings. The wooden floor tiles camouflage wires and makes the space look like something out of a catalogue.
For Intimate Dinners
There were heritage pieces of furniture that the family wanted to retain, and the dining table set is one of them. They just threw in two benches and gave a brand new feel to this space. Disha further exemplified the area by giving wooden ceiling rafters with a pendant light to highlight the look.
This room belongs to Indraneel’s dad and therefore, it had to be very functional and minimalist. Since the bed and the side tables are made in wood, Disha decided to create a metallic accent wall with texture paint. For his love of Indian prints, elephant block prints line the wall. Good design is all about the details.
With him being very devotional, it definitely called for a compact pooja unit to be placed in his room. Laminated in dark walnut finish, this unit matches with the wooden theme of this room. A pendant light is hung there to illuminate that corner while he prays.
Both Indraneel and Pranjoli like soothing colours and they want to retreat to a space which makes them feel calm at the end of a hectic day. On entering the master bedroom, you are welcomed by a serene blue wall and sheer drapery. For the love of reading, Pranjoli also wanted a cozy corner to herself in the bedroom. Disha suggested placing a comfy accent chair that she can use to relax and unwind, with a book or a cup of coffee.
If you love art, you will definitely notice the Haku Shah painting on the bedside wall that is brought into focus by task lights. The couple loves collecting art and displaying it at home. Furthermore, the wooden trunk is the only storage in this room and the dish TV unit is a refurbished version of a shelf.
This balcony also takes inspiration from the bedroom colours and has a refreshing grass carpet to make things bright.
“We came to Livspace primarily because we keep very busy and we wanted professional interior designers to design our home. We wanted to retain a lot of furniture and told Disha that the design should be in accordance with it. The best thing about her was that she got our pulse almost instantly and understood what we were looking for. Sandeep, our Project Manager, was also very prompt and the entire team was available whenever we needed their help. It was a great experience to get our home designed by Livspace.”

“I would definitely say that this is one of the rare projects that had a relatively small budget, but turned out to be a masterpiece. I learnt a lot of new things while designing this home and Indraneel and Pranjoli were more than accommodating at every step. Also, their excellent taste helped me choose the best for them.”
