Abode of simplicity
Abode of simplicity, his way of being
This 3 bhk Interior Design for home apartment was designed for the owner who has been working for corporates. The client wanted an elegant and efficient interior design for home along with sense of uniqueness to every space. For him, his home isn’t only a place, it’s a feeling and a way of being. It’s an art of being at peace with yourself and your surroundings. Also he wanted a home which a place of sustenance, invitation and welcome to all his family and friends.
An attractive door opens up to the foyer which has been detailed with cut-outs in geometric patterns. The space of narrow foyer is doubled by use of giant mirror. Moving ahead, one follows most exciting interventions of the house that is the onsite customized ceiling by the carpenter. This interior design for home sets a tone for the rest of living room decor. The living room attempts the design with colour palettes, layers of textures and patterns in a triangular frames. The partition between the living and dining is planned on similar tone. The colour pop by the yellow sofa and wooden texture of TV panel, false ceiling, partition and centre table acquires an interesting character to the space. The hanging lamp and wallpaper try to undertone the colour blasts and provide a soothing ambience for family gatherings.
To break the visual connection of dining and kitchen, an idea of partition arised. It also offer a little privacy from the living and place for keeping souvenir from their travel trips. The dining table with the four chairs was locally purchased. The standing puja and its brass idol matches the décor. Here, the balcony and swing is an essential part of client’s routine. The swing is a combination of wood, metal back and brass chain. It is kept as minimalist as per the brief. The kitchen is designed to demonstrate modern characteristics with tones of grey. The common area of hallway is lit with two lamp shaped like the wheel of cycle.
Considering the son’s love for music and guitar, the room came with its own challenge of fitting 2 place for guitar, electric amplifier, bed, cupboard and his study desk in a 10 feet square room. The grey walls and light wooden laminate was the first selection for developing a rustic look. The use of sofa cum bed and wardrobe shutter with full length mirror is a desperate attempt for the room to look bigger. The wallpaper at 3 different places in the room and the tint of yellow adds charm to the space. The use of leather in a specific stitch pattern offers a soft bed back to the son while playing guitar. Apart from the clean and functional planning of the overall layout, even the lighting for different moods of the room (study, getting dressed and play night for music) has been done thoughtfully.
The elderly bedroom has specifically been kept grey and white in color to add a mature setting. The bedback is a stone print laminate for easy cleaning from the home remedies they usually do. The study chair and circular painting enhance a character of colour to the space.
The master bedroom came with a challenge of hiding an extrusion of central located column in 3 out of 4 walls without losing much of the space. The full length wooden panel with vertical motif at the bed back hides the column as well as provides a grand appearance. The overall composition for the rest is very minimal. The huge French doors of the standing balcony brings in a bundle of natural light and view for the resident.
The quality of entire space in the project is a result of a smart use of materials and colour scheme. Hence, the propose of creating distinct identity is served for home interiors
