What do you do when you live in an apartment and love the place so much that you don’t want to move ever again? You buy a flat in the same complex and live happily ever after!
However, being doctors, time was not a luxury that Esha and Ajay could afford. “There is always the fear that buying and designing a home can go on forever. I’m glad I stumbled across Livspace on my Facebook feed,” remarks Esha. Soon enough, under the expert eye of Livspace designer Priya, an envious abode took shape.
The Kashmiri couple loves the warmth that wood finishes offer and insisted that every room of their home get an organic touch. By blending personal preferences and modern-day design aesthetics, Priya gave the family their dream home in a matter of weeks.
The most striking feature of the living room is undoubtedly the accent wall styled in a faux brick wallpaper. It lends a textured, weathered look and is really easy to maintain. The chocolate-hued leatherette sofas, yellow ottomans and solid wood center table lend an interesting mix of warm tones to the living room.
The dining room is a handsomely designed space, complete with plush dining chairs and a sleek wooden dining table that plays match with the mid-century style crockery unit.
Sophisticated pewter hues of the button-tufted dining chairs serve as a tasteful contrast to the surroundings. Fully upholstered in leatherette for optimum comfort, these chairs are easy to maintain.
Seamless walnut-hued, membrane finish cabinets were the obvious choice in the kitchen — given the couple’s love for all things wooden. Esha always wanted a full fledged kitchen where she can bake stuff in a jiffy, especially for large gatherings. The built-in ovens are nothing short of a boon!
Since the couple keeps busy, they steered clear of high maintenance materials for the kitchen. Thus, quartz was the chosen material for the countertop and to make things easier it was extended to the backsplash as well. Easy to clean and looks so nice!
The calming hues used in the master bedroom speaks volumes about the couple’s love for all things earthy. The floral wallpaper breathes life into this space while the printed orange drapes add a tasteful zing.
Being avid readers, the couple wanted ample storage space for their books in every room. This study corner, complete with floating shelves, is the perfect spot to hone one’s thoughts. Natural light seeping in through the balcony brightens up this space.
After only a few meetings, I could gauge what Esha wanted — a home that hits the sweet spot with modern furnishings and earthy tones. So glad with the outcome!
