This apartment is a labor of love and painstaking coordination of the site and internal team, to handover the project in 3 months. Layering of textures, using mirrors and custom art are few of the things that have been done to highlight the sun-drenched space. At each step, we've challenged the traditional way of living by bringing in new elements to the furniture and design. Every decision from choosing the canvas quality of paintings to sofa fabric selection has been painstakingly thought-through and debated.
White jute fabric and satin walnut finish on oak veneer have been used as two contrasting materials in the space. Carefully balancing blue and salmon pink by layering the colors on the sofa and carpet, the space has been given a new life. The two large ottomans in the center of the space challenge the traditional placement of coffee tables, and also acts as an additional seating when the client decides to host larger parties. The living room alone can accommodate up to 12 people. The round poufs with the low back break the monotony of straight lines, adding an oomph factor. The mirrors have been added to amplify light and space in the room. Going against the norm of placing table lamps, we've placed a vase and some books.
Simple, with an overdose of color and excitement. The blue textures wallpaper contrasts perfectly with the tan brown sofa made to relax and lounge in. The custom lights framing the mirror are adjustable and can be pivoted and rotated as desired. The pop-art of animals blowing bubble gum on the entrance wall adds a certain playful charm to the space.
Nothing beats the comfort of dining on a round table and not having to clash elbows. The space is donned by 2 wooden cabinets - one for crockery and the other for artifacts. The round shape of the dining table is echoed in the poufs in the adjacent living area. All the furniture was custom made and designed by Chalk Studio.
Muted fabrics have been used to highlight the teak veneer paneling on the bed back. Extra-large side tables have been designed to give the client maximum horizontal surface for keeping their daily use items. Inbuilt wall sconces make for an ideal way of reading in bed. The study table and TV unit on the opposite wall maximizes the use of space by adding drawers.
Light solid wood battens contrast deeply with the navy blue velvet on the bed. The intense contrast between the light and the dark lends a dramatic and seductive look.
Going against the norm of not using dark colors in a small room, we opted for a charcoal grey wallpaper with grooves and have specified a grey leatherette on the bed. Bold black and white stripes on the throw and carpet adds excitement to the room.
Connecting the outdoors to the indoors, the balcony is the perfect amalgamation of fabric and greenery. The usually wide and spacious balcony, is carefully planned with the sofa set kept on one side, and the other left open for barbecue and potted plant. It is the perfect place to enjoy the sun, breeze and the Indian monsoon.
