How would you want your dream home to look like? Maybe something bright or minimalist? For Giridhar Sharma it was plush comfort. That meant while the home should look luxurious, it also has to be homely. When he contacted us to get interiors done for his Andheri West flat, we were more than excited! Our designer Yogita Itkarkar was soon put up to the task of designing Giridhar’s picture-perfect home.

He was also particular about one thing. He wanted his home drizzled with smooth veneer finishes. In addition, hints of gold and earthy tones. We love how Yogita has followed the brief to the T.  Here’s the tour!

A Rich Welcome

The entrance alone is a giveaway to the partiality towards veneer and gold tones. The white PU painted console table standing on golden curved legs is the first thing that greets you. Moreover, this is a custom-made unit that has been crafted on site. Notice the wooden column that acts as a divider between the living room sections? It adds a touch of warmth, thanks to its veneer finish. 

Comforting Chocolate Browns

The living room is dressed in gorgeous elements. It’s been made designed into a spacious layout, thanks to the merging of a bedroom with the living room. While one section flaunts ample seating options, the other section hosts the TV unit. We love how Yogita has chosen different colours for all four seating options. Whether it’s the powder blue tufted sofa, the Persian blue daybed or the dark chocolate-hued armchairs, you are spoiled for choice!

While the attention certainly goes to all the sofas, once you take a glance at the accent wall, it surely captivates your attention. Its rustic nature is thanks to the use of Kajaria wall tiles. After that, it’s been lined with gold strips to add a bit more detail. “We picked the dark chocolate armchairs to match with the rustic wall accent,” Yogita explains.

The TV is mounted on a subtle wallpaper. Also, it features the same gold strips just like the rustic accent wall. It holds white shelves done up in matte membrane. In addition, the unit below is in wooden membrane. In addition, all these luxe elements bask under an elegant false ceiling.

Glitzy Bar Nook

We love nooks that make a statement. And this bar space certainly does make the mark! The counter top is a marvel alone. While its been done up in Corian stone, it’s also been fitted with lights inside. The velvet upholstered bar stools are custom-made. After that, Yogita put in two pendant lights to set an inviting ambience.

A Dining Room for Conversations

While being functional, dining rooms also need to be uber comfy. Afterall, this is where most families love to talk about their day! As a result, Yogita crafted a warm dining nook. The upholstered chairs perfectly pair with the wide Chevron wooden table. Also, if you look closely, you would notice how Yogita used the window space and put in a cushioned seat for extra seating. An additional column has also been put in with three niches in veneer to display crockery.

Pretty in Purple
Dreamy hues of wine splashes throughout the bedroom

The bedroom stands out in dreamy hues of deep wine. Flaunting a velvet headboard, the bed certainly looks chic in style. But the highlight of this room is the gold-toned swing with a velvet cushion in the same purple hue as the headboard. After that, an accent wall made of hexagon ceramic tiles come in a close second. A minimal chest of drawers in white PU paint adds a touch of softness to the space as well.

The wardrobe is in white acrylic. For an extra bit of storage, lofts have been placed as well. In addition, Yogita put in a white dressing unit that has been done up in PU paint. And, above all, the unit is fitted with lights for a little drama.

“Since the family wanted a plush home with comfort and warmth, I worked with veneer and luxe fabrics. I am happy the family loved the outcome.”
