A Ravishing Living Room

When you step into this 280 sq ft studio apartment in Andheri, you are bound to be pleasantly surprised. This home packs a lot more than you can imagine. For instance, the living room is a multi-purpose space where the couple entertain and work. The ash-hued sofa-cum-bed is an ideal space saving piece of furniture for a compact home. While the wooden flooring and furniture make this space feel warm, the rust-coloured wall offsets the neutral vibe of this room.

Rajesh is a Chartered Accountant by profession and often works from home with his colleagues. This surely calls for a setting where they can work comfortably. This living room features a workstation, complete with desktops and cabinets for storing innumerable files. The small wall mounted pooja unit finds its perfect spot beside the work zone. The lovely dark walnut finish again offsets the light flooring impeccably.

A Compact Kitchen

Who says that small spaces cannot look pretty? This kitchen will make you sit up and take note. The couple mentioned clearly to Sakshi that they do not want their kitchen to be open at all times and she gave them the best solution. Aesthetics did not take a back seat here, with white and ash glossy cabinets and Moroccan tiles that add a dash of colour and pattern. The couple wanted solid cabinets with one glass shutter to display some cutlery. A quartz countertop makes sure that this is a low maintenance kitchen.

The couple was very sure that they do not want a boring bedroom because of space constraints. So Sakshi presented them this wonderful illusion 3D wallpaper that makes the space look stylish. A sliding wardrobe with a mirrored shutter fits right in, while a pretty back-lit TV unit also find space in this compact room. The wooden bed adds more warmth to this space.

“When I entered this home, I was determined to give it a makeover like no other and make it look like a whole new space. The clients were very understanding and they trusted me completely with their home. I learnt how to design a compact space in a way that it looks good and has everything that a spacious home should have. This is my first project with Livspace and I enjoyed working on this one!”
