What is the one factor that distinguishes an Indian home from a Western one? In one word, it is colour. Desi homes always have a bit of colour. It comes through in a pair of bright curtains or some poppy throw cushions. Sometimes, we also see homeowners use bright wall paint. But not every family has the gumption to go big and bold with colours. So when Akash Jindal, our interior designer in Noida, met the the Guptas, the artist in him got a blank canvas to paint on.
Rashika and Sachin Gupta had a simple requirement; they didn’t want their home to have any whites or dull colours. Essentially, their spacious 4BHK had to be cheerful, bright and as vivid as a Frida Kahlo painting. So brace yourselves for the most colourful and vibrant home of the year. And don’t forget to take notes for some amazing wall treatments from it!
Shades, Tints and Hues So Bright
The Guptas as a family are in love with colour and undaunted when it comes wearing their personalities on their sleeves. So Akash, who is a really talented interior designer in Noida, went all out with colours for this Ace Golfshire apartment. We have rich blue wall paint with gold lettering in the kids’ bedroom. The kitchen is a mish-mash of aqua blue, white and applique like tiles for the backsplash. In fact, even the carcass cabinets are in a bluish hue for this merry-looking kitchen.
Last, but not the least, Sachin and Rashika’s living room is a medley of happy colours. While the couple decided to hold on to their existing furniture, we added colour to the walls and ceilings of this kaleidoscopic home.
“We were delighted to have Akash as our designer because he was totally devoted to the task of understanding our requirements. He was always patient while taking personal inputs, and that attention to detail shows in our home. We wanted a bright home full of colours, which he designed with a range of unique colour schemes. So for us, the journey with Livspace was worth its while.”
–Sachin Gupta, Livspace Homeowner
A Variety of Wall Treatments
While this Ace Golfshire home has a wide range of interesting wall treatments, our favourite by far is the one in the living area that has a mural theme with a rainbow-esque effect of colours. In fact, this matches the concept of curtains in six different solid colours in the living room. Moving on, in the guest bedroom, the couple wanted fabric panelling and Akash, a very artistic interior designer in Noida, complied with a patchwork pattern that resembles a quilt.
In terms of novelty, the wall treatment in Rashika and Sachin’s bedroom wins hands down! Here, Akash has used wooden log panels that entail pieces of solid wood stuck together in a cohesive pattern on a sheet, to dress the walls. We can see the same pattern repeated on the ceiling and TV unit in the master bedroom. Have you ever seen anything in such a unique texture?
Custom + Modular Furniture
For a home that has emerged from the amalgamation of many unique elements, the budget for this 4BHK is not exorbitant. This moderation in spending was achieved due to the smart design planning done by Akash, a reputed interior designer in Noida. He has used an apt mix of Livspace catalogue units and custom pieces to get the look and budget right for this Ace Golfshire home.
For instance, the storage unit in the entryway is a custom piece as it had to fit the narrow space perfectly. In the couple’s bedroom, he merged a custom wall panel with a modular TV unit from Livspace. Also, the wardrobe in this bedroom has that matte gold membrane finish is a modular unit from our standard catalogue.
In the kids’ bedroom, Akash stuck with modular pieces for storage including the mirror shutter wardrobe. He used minimal customisation like the yellow frame around the wardrobe for adding some colour. We see a mix of modular and custom storage units in the guest bedroom as well. The bay seating here is custom along with the three blue cube units. The white closed units are all from the Livspace catalogue. This seamless blend of custom and modular units is a fine achievement by itself.
Tiles, Textures & New Layouts
As the kitchen was so bright and colourful, Akash felt that it would be a good idea to open it up. So the closed kitchen was demolished and the chimney as well as hob shifted to open up the layout. The extra space has been utilised to fit in a very useful tall unit for the pantry and a massive refrigerator. We also see some traces of exquisite civil work in the pooja niche in the living room. The Guptas wanted this space to be marked by marble flooring. Akash also worked on adding steps here that would serve as shelves for placing idols and pooja items.
While every corner of this home is touched by colour, the bathroom attached to Rashika and Sachin’s bedroom is a stunner for its texture. The metallic tiles in this bathroom have a psychedelic effect that we are yet to see in any other home!
“Sachin and Rashika had a set idea about how they wanted their home to look when they came to Livspace. However, they were more than open to the ideas given by our design team. This project was a unique one involving plenty of colours and elements. So the design process was longer than usual, but the couple understood that this time was required to do justice to their home. They collaborated with us at every step and gave us the creative space we needed to design a head-turning home for them.”
