The second wave of Covid showed some of us the most ‘grey times’ we have seen in our entire lifetimes, and right after this period the clients approached us to make a self-sustaining, happy and cheerful home which reflected their panache for colours.
This lavish 4BHK apartment houses a small family of 3 with 2 dogs, house help and parents visiting on and off. The home layout allocates spaces for Living room with balcony, Master Bedroom, Daughter’s Bedroom, Kitchen, Powder Room, Gym, Steam Room, Utility room, apart from two full-fledged home offices for his and her personal use.
The Living room is a visual treat right from the entrance door with its pop of colours and an experimental colour blocking which uses the walls and floor as the canvas for this art expression. The furniture compliments the visuals with its sharp contrasts in form and colour. The Swing forms an integral part of the seating, connecting seamlessly with the dining and bar space within the living room. The bar unit on the other hand, contrasts with the colour block pattern and sets its own identity in a bright red oval form.
The Master bedroom is a splash of green over the beige tones, with its botanical wallpaper and green hand polished louvered door to the walk-in closet. The Master bathroom is simply a green micro-concrete coating over the walls, with a seamless and joint free finish, in contrast to its black and white patterned floor tile.
The Daughter’s room is a fantasy land with a bunk-bed like setting which gives her extra space to read, play and sleep in the same structure as she climbs up and slides down the bed. The customised wallpaper and wardrobe add to the dreamy vibe of this space. Her bathroom is an extension of similar colours with Micro-concrete over the existing bathroom setting.
Her Home Office is a mini library, with a lounger to read and relax while the custom-made blue terrazzo top work-desk by the window, provides complete flexibility to stand or sit, while working with its lift mechanism. The vibrant indigo blue compliments the wooden flooring as well as the feminine swan lamp.
His Home office doubles up as a guest bedroom when required, with a sofa cum bed and movable desk setting, that gets tucked into the furniture when not required. This basic grey and brown space is a complete contrast to the otherwise vibrant home; creating a perfect den space for him to cut-off and immerse into his work.
The Blue kitchen is in-sync with the living room and its complimenting spaces which are just as vibrant.
The Gym on the contrast is a powerful punch of shocking pink that absolutely cannot be missed, it also facilitates the steam room.
In short, this is a home, as unGREY as its lovely dwellers.
