For Debomita Basu and her husband Ashish Ambwani, this is their first home and they want it to be spectacular. Having studied and lived abroad for quite some time, Debomita knew what she wanted for her home. After following Livspace on Instagram and visiting our experience centre, they decided to get their home designed by us.
When Pallavi Goel, their designer, met them for the first time, she figured that the couple were very educated about interiors and knew exactly what they wanted. So she set to work with their inputs and her ideas. This home incorporates a lot of neutral colours and wooden panelling throughout the living and dining room. Being avid photographers and collectors, the traveller-couple have a lot to put on display. Take a tour of this home and fall in love!
A Delight in Contrasts
This home celebrates uniformity in walls and it welcomes you with open arms. Debomita chose a darker colour palette for their home, since she felt that the home is already blessed with a lot of natural light. A blue-green wall replaces the initial colour palette, with light grey paneling all around the living and dining area. Feast your eyes on the beetroot Chesterfield sofa and tan leatherette accent chairs around the solid wood center table. The light upholstery makes lets light bounce right off and makes the room look luminous.
A cool dining room
As is any collector’s dream, Debomita and Ashish have always wanted to display their lovely collection of plates on one of the walls at home. So Pallavi decided to make an accent wall in the dining area using these plates.
The dining chairs also have a story to tell. Having a lot of get-togethers always calls for comfortable seating, and this led to a bench finding space in the corner of the dining room. Three chairs and a bench ensure that this four seater dining table can accommodate more people. Pallavi chose the tribal upholstery carefully, keeping in mind, the trims and colour on the wall.
A Soothing Escape
The master bedroom is a soothing sight for tired eyes. As soon as you enter the room, you see dreamy white drapes set against the backdrop of neutral walls. The dark grey, suede headboard accentuates the solid wood bed, that is plushly upholstered for utmost comfort. Being avid readers, the couple needs these bookshelf-style side tables, that act as a handy storage unit for their night-time essentials. This bedroom is perfect to retire in, after a long day at work!
Built for the Smart Dresser
Pallavi chose to give mirror panels on the wardrobe, since it opens up the area and makes it look bigger due to the reflection of light. The placement of mirrors opposite the bed was not much of a problem for the couple because they aren’t Vastu followers. Also, there is a dressing unit that finds its place next to the wardrobe. A carefully selected piece, this dresser has a lot of drawers space for storing toiletries and cosmetics. Debomita wanted a separate area for her dressing needs, and this proved to be the ideal choice.
“Both Debomita and Ashish had complete faith in my design capabilities and gave me freedom to work. I had to give them colours that match their personality and do not look loud or overpowering. I enjoyed working on this project, since I could experiment with a lot of things and this is my style of designing!”
