A wide variety of interior design projects, have earned the firm its proud reputation as highly versatile innovators. One such project is the flat at Lokhandwala, Andheri (west):
This project was for a family of 5 with a minimalist, classy and functional vision for their home. It revolves around a base theme of ‘White’, with splashes of colours unique to each room as per the individual taste of the person occupying it. It has a lot of interesting elements that are striking and unique to the space.
The entrance passage gives a feeling of amazement with an eye-catching false ceiling feature that has backlit laser cut panel at the center. The tempered glass separation between the passage and kitchen is skillfully frosted with a geometrical pattern that gives it a unique touch. A sleek shoe console in dark veneer sits on one corner, giving it an appealing look.
The living space is accentuated with exotic Australian white marble flooring, sleek leather furniture customized for the space, and slim cove cuts in the false ceiling with color changing mood lighting in LED strips. The addition of a veneer panel in the ceiling only makes the living room look richer.
The Dining space has an interesting back wall emphasized with twin Brazilian marbles book matched in a seamless manner, making it a striking element in the space. The bedrooms each have a unique design style.
The master bedroom has a rich classy appeal with the use of huge mirror paneled wardrobe at the entrance and an interesting open display next to it. Pure white laminated strips and mirror strips alternated randomly into the bed’s headboard, self finished wallpaper on the TV wall, and hand painted artwork on the slim storage along the TV wall gives the room a subtle yet rich look. The dresser has a dramatic appeal with glossy black wardrobe panels having customized hand painted artwork that is bold and full of character.
Other bedrooms have a unique character to each of them. With customized patterns on the furniture in the form of vinyl prints and painted artwork. The study space in the bedroom is made to look distinct with a catchy bold grey paint tone, and pure white flowing study top. The acrylic panel on the ceiling, with laser cuts throwing light onto the space, adds to the class of the personal space.
The confined sizes of the bathrooms are infused with character by using rich Italian marble on the walls, and breaking the tone with classy pure white vitrified tiles for the floor. Ample lighting and play of glass and mirrors make the bathrooms look visually bigger and richer.
Sufficient lighting, mild toned materials with minimal accents and extensively thought out space plans have given a very functional and aesthetic space, and meets the dream home vision of its proud owners.
The designers in the firm strive with passion and individualism at the core of each project, bringing the clientele an instant recognition, while maximizing the consumer’s atonement. The projects are closely monitored by the site co-coordinators and the complete management of the project is taken care of as a one-stop solution.
Milind recounts that, “We enjoy every project we do, provided it gives satisfaction to our client and creates speculative interior appeal to a wide range of discerning customers, with an extra WOW factor that keeps it unique and and has an eye catching identity”.
