The small 1500 square foot apartment is an ideal retreat that allows one to fully disconnect and relax. We've consolidated the needs of the client with multifunctional furnishings and innovative strategies for the contemporary living. Despite low ceilings and irregular AC boxing, we have uplifted the space through color, mirrors and decor. All the furniture was custom-made & designed by Chalk Studio.
A formal living area with one 4 seater sofa and 2 armchairs make the space intimate and cozy. Working with a neutral palette made way for playing with color in the cushions, carpets, and paintings. Using a combination of rust and deep maroon, the cushions bring life to the living area. The 'vestiges' wool hand-knotted rug from Jaipur Rugs anchors the furniture setting. The display area behind the armchairs enhances the space by adding a hint of sparkle, glamor and lavishness.
Adjacent to the living room is the dining space that features a six-seater table in front of
mirror paneled wall. The custom artwork on the right wall echoes the color theme from
the living room and adds drama to the space. Most of the cutlery on the table has
been sourced from either Tye Tye Singapore or Address Home. The hint of
gold adds grandeur to the space.
Veneer paneling is used to balance the irregular columns and a beam running across one side of the room. The entrance features veneer paneling with grooves on all three sides. The wardrobes have mirror shutters amplifying the space and light in the room. Replica of the Minotti Spencer bed is placed in front of the fabric paneling along with 2 side tables. Color has been added through painting on the opposite wall. The palette is shades of grey and white with hints of clay beige.
Veneer paneling is the highlight of the room, uplifting the furniture (bed, bedside tables, and study table) in front of it. The TV unit occupies minimum space with the TV hung on the wall. The color palette is neutral with shades of beige, cream and off-white ruling the space. The metal accents in the furniture adds a little bling to the otherwise matte space. Carpets were customized on order along with the paintings. The sliding mirror wardrobe on the entrance doubles the space and light in it.
The lounge acts as a multifunctional room with a sofa cum bed that can be used as an extra bed when the need arises, and a foldable study unit. The lounge chair can be used as a study chair when needed. The room also has a TV unit with storage and 2 small storage cabinets next to the sofa. All lounge furniture has been sourced from BoConcept. The cobalt blue wall-to-wall carpet instantly livens up the spaces.
The soul of the home is the Balcony. It runs across the length of the apartment and provides light to entire space. Being the only balcony in the house, innovative ways of adding seating & storage were found without making it overcrowded. A swing in one corner, a Buddha fountain on the other and seating in the center defines the versatility of the spaces. Wooden deck flooring in front of the lounge breaks the length of the balcony, incorporating a lounging outdoor space with beanbags and a bookshelf.
