Czarina of nursery design Ms Romilla Tewari designs a warm and inviting jungle safari themed project

ThinkCutieful is the brainchild of interior expert and space designer Romilla Tewari, who launched a children’s decor company in2009. Ever since ThinkCutieful has taken the lead in customizing interiors for kids to support holistic growth. Her experience in education and paediatric design has played a key role in enhancing spaces from pre-schools to residences. With the ongoing pandemic and countless lockdowns, there is a need–now more than ever– to be able to provide an environment that fosters a healthy upbringing.

Adding to Romilla’s fabulous portfolio is this neutral, minimal yet warm, colourful and yet pleasing to the eye baby nursery created for Akash and Surkhi, who were very clear about what they wanted for their bundle of joy. The mood board for this jungle safari nursery was not very loud. Muted tones, lending a warm and fuzzy feeling, filled with animals and natural-looking hand-painted palms for the wallpaper create a serene sanctuary. With that broad outline to work with, Ms. Tewari used a palette filled with greys, beiges, whites and creams. 

The room to be converted was an existing lounge connected to the parents’ room. While the shape and size of the room may not have been ideal, she used her creative vision to transform the room into more than what the to-be parents expected it to be. Keeping the basic requirements of a cot, a day bed and a feeding chair for the mother in mind, a functional six by six pull out bed was brought in which could be used as a daybed if someone needed to sleep with the baby or simply a space to lounge around in during the daytime. There was enough storage in terms of existing wardrobes in the closet but extra storage was needed to store the essentials for the baby like diaper changes, books and toy storage.

Keeping the room’s dimensions in mind, smart space-saving storage pieces within the existing furniture pieces are the ideal response to a parent’s desire for functionality without compromising on the aesthetic. A design with storage compartments was created like a chest of drawers, around the bed so that everything is on one side and there’s still enough space as the baby starts to sit and starts crawling. In terms of the colours and mood the wooden flooring, the day bed, the chest of drawers, the blinds, the wallpaper, the chair and the accessories were added keeping with the theme of a jungle safari. A lovely amalgamation of elephants and giraffes and all that animal cuteness and textures came together to welcome Akash and Surkhi’s baby.

Barovier & Toso Available at Emery Studio Unveils The Taif Chandelier

Founded in 1295, Barovier & Toso creations are one-of-a-kind works in Venetian mouth-blown crystal, handcrafted by master artisans in Murano, custodians of an age-old tradition passed down across the generations. Angelo Barovier invented a revolutionary formula that made it possible to obtain an unprecedented material with extraordinary characteristics of extreme transparency and brightness.

B&B Italia Launches New Luxury Furniture Collection – Noonu

B&B Italia, world leader in contemporary furnishing sector, has launched a new furniture collection, Noonu, which enhances spaces with its large proportions, graceful geometric shapes and impressive flexibility. It is available at Scala Home, a destination for exclusive furniture in New Delhi.

The name of this collection designed by Antonio Citterio is inspired by the Noonu atoll in the Maldives. The Noonu collection is a system of upholstered furniture pieces where large sizes meet impressive flexibility.

The supporting structure disappears from view, creating “islands” which appear to almost float, suspended in mid-air. The seats are deep, with a single, large seat cushion that guarantees extreme comfort and relaxation, while also characterising the overall aesthetic. The tilted back is designed to accommodate cushions that can be distributed however you wish. The
support element – a roller cushion bound by sophisticated webbing to a die-cast aluminium frame, which sits beneath the seat cushion – can be used as a terminal armrest element or as a headrest, or placed between the seats, or removed entirely.

Antonio Citterio’s former collection, Atoll, and the current one, Noonu stemmed from a single idea, namely a cylinder that could be used as an armrest and cushions distributed freely over the sofa. “What’s new in Noonu is the apparently suspended seating, which extends all the way to the floor, and the new types of elements that we have defined as “piano” and “sail” elements, lending a certain identity and richness to the design,” the designer says.

Noonu is comprised of four basic elements, namely a square and a rectangle, in addition to the brand-new “piano” and “sail” elements. The piano-shaped base creates a welcoming curve in the backrest, whilst the sail provides a generous, rounded volume at the front.

Noonu sports bold, yet extremely homely tones, designed especially to suit
combinations between the various elements of each individual composition (frame, cushions, rollers), thus allowing for a custom solution of an unrivalled elegance. In addition to this fabric, Noonu will also be available in leather. The elements of Noonu can also stand on their own as individual objects, or be combined to create personalised compositions.

According to Antonio Citterio, “Noonu is a fully-fledged domestic island.”

House of Ekam unwraps a collection of gorgeous handmade Kantha quilts

With winter undeniably here, these sustainably made Kantha quilts from the women of Rajasthan are perfect to snuggle up and cherish the season’s bliss 

Indian heritage, textiles, and motifs are the sources of inspiration behind this earthy and beautiful collection of quilts from House of Ekam. Relying on indigenous craft and materiality, the different quilts combine the use of vibrant and subtle hues with fine craftsmanship and timeless design techniques to evoke memories specific to those cold winter afternoons, where soaking in the sunshine and sipping on kulhad chai is the ultimate comfort. Superior quality of materials adds a pristine allure to this collection that is woven and hand-stitched with love, tenderness and precise detailing by craftswomen of Rajasthan. 

“Our purpose is to save and promote Indian art forms and craft techniques. With our design inspiration rooted in nature and our rich and diverse history, we exclusively work with artisans to develop hand-made products sourced directly from the remote areas.” – says Tanvi Agarwal, Founder and Creative Head of House of Ekam.

An age-old craft that originated in West Bengal, Kantha is essentially a woman’s art. Traversing the landscape of different regions over the years with complex patterns done in the Sindh region like the Sami quilts to more contemporary forms like the running stitch, used in all of the brand’s quilts, the craft has come a long and arduous way. 

The collection features quilts in nuanced and subtle grey tones, lavender and orange ombre shades with an indigo patchwork and shibori dohar incorporating various distinct design elements and stitching patterns. From pic stitch (straight running stitch) to making complex animal motifs, everything is done diligently by women of Rajasthan working from the comfort of their homes. Every quilt takes 3-4 days to be stitched on average. 

Conceived on the softest cotton, the Kantha quilts are made by block printing or dyeing the desired pattern on the material, then sandwiching surgical cotton between the two layers of cloth. The craftswomen then use the back of their needles to mark the entire quilt and stitch the entire pattern and design of the Kantha as per those markings. Tie-dye patterns, solid colours and floral designs are staples of the brand’s signature flair making this collection simple, beautiful and worthy of every bedroom décor.

Bring in the warm vibes of autumn and create a cosy setting in your intimate spaces with the orange or grey Kantha quilt or create a homely abode reminiscent of old times with the indigo shibori quilt. It’s time to celebrate the arrival of winter.

look. “The reason for its simplicity and clearness is to ensure that the
Suprematism inspiration looks appropriate in such small dimensions,”
says Sanjyt Syngh.

The Suprematism concept is demonstrated in the play of varied shapes
like triangles, cuboids and rectangles that embellish the graceful dining
table. Apart from a play of shapes, the dining table also sees a medley
of materials. It is made of wood, stone and brass, bringing a rich, multi-
material grandeur to the piece of furniture. While the brass details add
a touch of glamour.

FIMA is an Italian brand that has existed for three generations. The continuous search for beauty and the spasmodic attention to every detail, from the choice of machinery, to the study of the components of a new product up to the development of its explanatory brochure, is what has always distinguished and characterized FIMA Carlo Frattini. This well-known company is launching a new tap collection—So, which is aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Designed by Davide Vercelli, So was created to meet the current designing needs and to offer unlimited customization possibilities, not only to designers but also to final customers.

A detail that proves the keen attention of the company to aesthetics as well as ergonomics: the cut helps indeed to turn on and off the water in full comfort. In this way, So wants to be the perfect balance between
design and functionality.

The customer first chooses the type of washbasin mixer more suited to their
functional and aesthetical need. Options include a single-hole mixer with two controls, a washbasin mixer, a three holes basin tap, a wall mounted three-holes basin mixer and a wall mounted washbasin mixer.

In addition, different colors and materials can be combined with So, enhancing every stylistic need. The 11 finishes of So handles can actually be individually chosen or combined for a unique style.

Expert tips to declutter your homes this festive season by ASRO Arcade

The annual ‘Diwali cleaning’ can be overwhelming and exhausting. It’s the time of the year when one relooks what they own and takes the tough decision of throwing off things that are no longer needed. Clutter is anything that does not add value to one’s life. Cluttering not only makes the space look shabby but can have a major impact on the productivity of the residents. The team at ASRO Arcade believes in putting forth a clean home this festive season and thus offers tips to declutter one’s home interiors.

Segregate the festive decorations:
Diwali decorations that are put away in boxes never get reused. The shelf lives of festive decorations are usually low and most pieces stored take up a big chunk of storage. Check the items, throw away things that do not work, or are no longer suiting the interior aesthetic. This will make space for new decoration and less junk.

Organize your living room:
The living room is perhaps the most used space in the home that also sets the design tone of the rest of the house. It can be decluttered efficiently with minimum effort. It is a must to get rid of unnecessary & broken items, old magazines, and artefacts that do not match the place aesthetically. Additionally, to bring in a festive spirit, introduce new cushion covers and candles adding zestful freshness to the space. In the living room of the Mystique residence designed by ASRO Arcade, the floral and green furniture upholstery brings in vibrant energy when amalgamated with the
metallic statement pieces. The use of the candlesticks and the chic centre table further aids in building the festive fervour of the room.

Keep the kitchen clutter-free:
The festive season invites more cooking time with the increased demand for sweets and guests coming in, thus one should aim to keep the kitchen spaces as tidy as possible. The kitchen is full of appliances and utensils one doesn’t use. Divide the space into sections and keep what is necessary. In addition to this, items of the same categories are best when kept together as they save time and effort. It is best to keep the kitchen counters uncluttered and keep the storage cabinets shut to allow an illusion of free movement within the space.

Polished bathrooms:
People rarely spend time decluttering the bathroom that not only increases the junk but can also be unhygienic. Cleaning bathrooms are easy; start by choosing things that can be used frequently; sort them as per usage. Trash things that are expired or you do not use anymore. This will keep the daily usage space clutter-free and clean. One can also renovate the bathrooms with a neutral colour palette in mind so as to keep the design scheme symmetric and elegant.

Create a sorting system:
One can always curate their sorting method according to their needs, or choose the three-box method. The three-box method starts by labelling three boxes with “Keep,” “Get Rid Of,” and “Put In Storage.” Fill in these boxes with the items that suit them best and keep arranging or throwing them as they fill. The keep box will have the things or daily utility. The get rid of the box has to be filled with things that are broken or no longer in use. Lastly, things with sentimental value or seasonal use will go into the put-in storage box. Ensure that the items being sorted are recycled or donated to be more environmentally friendly. Decluttering and cleaning can give an individual a sense of accomplishment and control. Ar. Robin Sosodiya hopes that these simple tips offer each one a warm welcome into a stress-free festive season. Give the home a minimalist look and remind oneself that editing is the key to having an assembled space.


Nurturing experiences with state-of-the-art interiors

One of the largest skincare clinics in the city, Nava Clinic’s brief was for a design that was cutting edge yet minimal. The standards of the practitioners required it to be state-of-the-art and experiential while also ensuring a calming and confidence-inducing ambience for patients.

The shell of the project is built in levelled ceilings with stretch fabric lighting, engaging walls with angled patterns filled in wood or colour and a rather simple flooring in concrete tiles with angles of terrazzo and
brass inlay.

The highlight of the project is the lounge space where we worked to encapsulate the feel and comfort of a spa lounge. During the day, the space is illuminated by the large glazing behind the clusters of planters on a pebble bed. At nighttime, the stretch fabric ceiling replicates sunlight and keeps the space bright and ambient.

The project accommodates various interesting elements finished in a combination of simple materials giving it an eclectic look and feel. Terrazzo stone in combination with light wood veneer and evergreen concrete textures have been widely used throughout the space. Tan leather sofas were paired with short and comfortable armchairs without any bulky sections to ensure that the furniture had minimal detailing and was easy on the eye.

The entrance of the clinic welcomes a visitor with a featured reception flowing seamlessly with the terrazzo flooring in combination with concrete and brass profiles. The well-lit stretch fabric ceiling keeps the space illuminated apart from the recessed track lights that suspend can lights.
Ferns, palms and other large, leafy plants add an additional layer of soothing vibes to the ambience.

Movable wooden partitions are another focal point that maintains some much-needed privacy between the waiting area and the consultation rooms. The partitions are suspended from the ceiling and exude the illusion of floating in the air.

The design for the rooms in the clinic are both modern and on point with current trends. The MD’s cabin has large windows that allow sunlight to stream in on the combination of concrete and terrazzo flooring with brass transitions profile and knotty veneer panelling and storage units in pastel shades. Surface recessed linear lights in the ceiling add to the ambience.

Both cabins have bespoke designs that match the personalities of the practitioners implicitly. One is dark themed and the other is light with veneer wrapping from the wall to the table. Italian texture paint gives a finishing touch to the entire frame and makes the space more engaging.
In conclusion, the design style for the project is a tie between eclectic and modern design with state of the art elements. A neutral palette with earthy and warm tones was chosen and tweaked with different elements to ensure a creative yet functional space.

Name of the Project: NAVA Clinic
Design Team: Urban Zen team.
Location: Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.
Area (Sq.ft): 5000 SFT (approx.)

A play of accent walls for your home interiors The KariGhars

We have all seen a Pinterest pin with stunning decor and excellent room planning. This picture has everything you ever wanted in your dream bedroom – the beautiful walls, the subtle decor, and the heartwarming vibe of calling your room your safe haven. After sifting through some pins, you discover that there’s a common element tying all these rooms together – it is the accent wall! From the perspective of a seasoned interior designer, an accent wall is a great addition to any house, making for some sophisticated changes that are subliminal, while being sophisticated. Accent walls have always been a staple in an interior designer’s repertoire, but it is seldom given its due credit. Here is Aashita Chadha, Co-Founder and CFO of Bangalore-based luxury interior design firm, ‘The KariGhars’ expounding on the details of accent walls to add that much-needed touch of playful whimsicality and “je ne sais quoi” that every contemporary home needs!

Aashita remarks that accent walls need to be perfectly positioned so that their full effect can be felt. The job of an accent wall is to attract attention and hold on to one’s focus, so if the accent space is located poorly, then instead of highlighting the beauty of your space, the entire focus will be on the imperfections. Thinking about the flow, layout, and other highlighting features of a room, one can make the choice of conveniently selecting an accent wall space. A fireplace, vaulted ceilings, or a headboard are some great examples of elements that an accent wall can hold a viewer’s attention. If your humble home does not have a critical space like this, Aashita recommends the use of some statement furniture like a retro sofa or decor pieces placed in front of the accent wall that instantaneously grabs the viewer’s attention. However, these things should be complementary – opposing aesthetics can vie for the viewer’s attention, thereby reducing the impact of the accent wall. 

Accent walls can be created using paint or wallpapers. Aashita does not have a strict rule when choosing a medium – this is contextually dependent on what the client wants. For instance, painting walls is a great way to elevate the look of a room, with minimal effort, adding that much-needed depth. However, it cannot be changed frequently, and one needs to be sure of the color they are choosing as it will last for a long time. On the other hand, wallpapers are more affordable but need professional installation. On the flip side, wallpapers can easily be changed to match the seasonal decor trends, making them the perfect choice for homeowners who are looking for a fresh look all around the year! 

Now comes the brass tacks of the accent wall – Choosing the right color or wallpaper for your accent wall. Aashita emphasizes the importance of subtlety while making a big statement to attract attention. If one is opting for a dramatic color like that of sunset orange, peacock green, or crimson, Aashita smartly advises to back it up with a softer and neutral color palette so it doesn’t get too overwhelming and shadows other decor elements.

However, if one wants to create a larger accent wall, one can opt for a dimensional trim to have a more impactful base of soft pastels. Wallpapers are tricky to choose, but as a general thumb rule, if the room has a patterned rug, avoid going for wallpaper as they can be contrasting and steal the limelight. It can also make for very confusing and overwhelming interiors, and no one wants that, says Aashita. 

Committing to accent walls may seem daunting at first, but it needs smart execution and a lot of planning so that the outcome is perfect. It is perfectly normal to feel intimidated by an accent wall, but with the help of a professional and experienced interior design firm like that of The KariGhars, you can achieve the home of your dreams, without feeling lost when making these choices!

This Oakton Home designed by Vibha Mehta is a compelling blend of contemporary and classical aesthetics

The longing for home and belonging had been the strongest and the most visible form of emotion during the pandemic. Driven by this feeling, an Indian immigrant family who have been away from their homeland for the better part of a decade decided to create a space that was reminiscent of their Indian roots and an ode to their beautiful neighbourhood of Oakton, Virginia.

Interior designer Vibha Mehta understood this brief, as well as their sentiments, exceptionally well that has brought about warmth and transformed their house into a home by weaving the tapestry of their family ethos and cultural heritage. Despite being continents apart, Vibha seamlessly managed this project over zoom calls and Google meets, sitting 8,029 miles away in her bungalow at Pawna Lake, near Mumbai. A reminder of how the pandemic has shrunk our world, this project also demonstrates how distances don’t matter to execute a project of such mammoth proportion in the present times. 

Nestled in the suburbs of Blake Lane, Oakton VA, the massive six-bedroom house with lush and soulful intimate spaces is spread on a sprawling 7,000 sq. ft. To add character to such a big space, Vibha collaborated with Kunal Mehta (Kanchi) to create mood boards for the living areas and bedrooms by diligently zeroing down on the minutest details. Previously, Vibha has designed independent projects, such as Mumbai’s Starbucks outlet in the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel’s Heritage wing and the hotel’s Wasabi restaurant and Chambers.

From plush velvets to subtle linens and performance fabric upholstery to splashes of colour in draperies and throw cushions, Mehta took to the Kanchi playground for all her interior fabric design and styling needs.

All of this was made possible with the Kanchi team ensuring every detail was executed exceptionally for a smooth delivery, after all, it was door-to-door delivery. Santa arrived early for the Manaise family this year when the 40-footer container reached their home carrying all-that-the-house needed to make it into a home. Mehta’s vision and the efficient logistical team made the dream come true in the midst of the pandemic.

Inter mingling spaces being an open layout have their distinctive character and the Manaise family loves it. The synergy in the home is great from one space to the other. Family portraits of baking together to growing up years, memories fill up the space making it very warm for the family who has been away from home. Having friends and family over after almost a year of lockdown has a charming influence on the visitors who instantly connect with the home and the curated decor.

Massive furniture pieces to custom rugs, accent armchairs to classic bar cabinets, headboards to dining table and chairs, stitched pleated drapery with its unique tie-backs to metal table lamps, wall featured mirrors to the most unique bed & table decor, the space was literally bustling.

It’s worth seeking furniture pieces that will work through decades of life moments with you. Sometimes, the investment into a furniture piece that you know will become an heirloom later on in life is worth the splurge, after all.  

While the installation team was busy unpacking for days and assembling glass and metal ceiling light fittings that were curated for the space, putting up hand-painted art still holds a special place for both Mehta & Manaise’s. Especially the Golden Temple in B&W, gold foiled in 5’x9′ that adorns the entrance hall and leaves a mesmerizing effect on every eye.

Six months and numerous detailing later, the home is the perfect haven for these house-proud owners who have experienced time slowing down in the pandemic.

The world came to a standstill in the months following the lockdown. That gave us time to pause and reflect on our relationship with each other, and how we were spending our downtime. This realization was one of the reasons behind my motivation for this project. Channelling my energy and shifting my focus from a dystopian-like reality, I focused all my creative insight into this beautiful project. And the result was not just a stunning home with beautiful interiors but a soothing mind space for me.” – Vibha Mehta, Creative Head and Interior Designer.

Trends in Furnishings Fabrics for 2021

It could be because of the challenging times we are going through, there has been an affinity among people towards natural fibres through this year, which is bound to continue to in the next too. Cotton, linen and viscose fabrics have been popular. Especially people who understand furnishing fabrics, are veering away from polyesters and synthetic materials. They
are particularly fond of linens. There has been a great surge in demand for linen fabrics, whether it is the linen jacquard, printed linen, or embroidered linen.

Velvets are another time-tested choice which is always going to be in fashion. They are versatile, cost-effective and with their plush look, they bring a luxurious vibe to any interior.

They simply elevate the glamour quotient of any piece of furniture they cover – be it sofas, beds or chairs. Velvets come in prints and patterns, and with textures offering many options for versatile designs. So, it is velvets all the way for the Indian home furnishing industry for the next couple of years for sure.

Prints are also big right now, and we have reason to believe that it will be so in the coming years too. The vibrancy and delicacy of prints are an all-time favourite with customers. They also have a fast delivery rate and are cost-effective. With printing, you can create any design, pattern or motif and go really creative by using the colours of your choice. You can even achieve the watercolour effect that is in vogue right now. With such diverse style options, printed fabrics will be the main selling point in the coming years.

There is also a huge demand for floral patterns, including the classical imagery – the Mughal style floral patterns, vines and motifs. Rendered in contemporary palettes, they are a timeless addition to any space.

Christofle Available at Emery Studio Unveils the Jardin & Eden Stainless Steel Cuckoo Clock

For nearly two centuries, Paris-based Christofle has manufactured fine silver flatware and home accessories. Since its inception in 1830, the House of Christofle has cultivated its unique know-how, modernising its techniques and execution to keep up with the times. Whether they are creations by designers or artists, re-editions and historic reproductions or custom commissions, exceptional pieces by Christofle are made in its fine
silver workshop, which has been integrated into the company’s manufacturing facility in Yainville, Normandy. Bespoke decorative lighting, home decor and tableware specialist Emery Studio brings to India, the exquisite Jardin D’Eden Cuckoo Clock by Christofle.

The Jardin D’Eden Cuckoo Clock by Christofle is an exceptional piece of the Haute- Orfèvrerie collection that celebrates 10 years of Jardin D’Eden collection. Marcel Wanders studio revisits this traditional object and stages a contemporary illustration of Adam and Eve.

Adam, seen wearing a pair of jeans and shirt, sits under the branches of the tree of good and evil, while waiting for Eve. Eve is illustrated as donning a skirt with heels and brings Adam the “apple” every hour, under the watchful eye of the snake.

The fruit of 135 hours of work and close collaboration between one of Christofle’s master silversmiths, the best in France, and an automatic watchmaker, result in the creation of this unique piece. It combines the know-how of the master silversmith (assembly, plating and polishing) with that of the watchmaking tradition. The mechanism allows both the animation and the reading of the time. The narrative world of Jardin D’Eden, creativity and know-how combine through this extraordinary object to create wonder.

The weight watch mechanism gives real added value to the product and this has the advantage that there are no electrical constraints, no batteries and therefore no handling for unequal autonomy. The cuckoo clock mechanism is a 3-weight clock mechanism. Each weight is associated respectively with the clock, sound and animation. These same weights give the clock an autonomy of 6 days. As the hours go by, the weights of the clock will drop
naturally and to wind them up, it will be sufficient to hold the weight and pull on the corresponding chain.

The clock can be rewound at any time, at the discretion of its owner. The pendulum is 50mm in diameter, which ensures the correct operation of the clock and its adjustment, which is obtained once the pendulum is positioned on the graduated ruler. The case conceals the automaton mechanism and allows invisible wall mounting. The clock has an aluminium frame and nickel-plated brass cladding, and the tree and figures are in nickel-plated resin.

From the Ecole de Nancy, from Art Nouveau to Art Decoratif, from Majorelle to Dali, Arman and Hilton McConnico, Daum has not missed any of the magic rendezvous of the artistic creation and modern savoir-faire, which has always renewed the alliance of art and art craft.

Summer Trends 2021 by Interior Designer Punam Kalra

The year’s summer has a fresh take on the design language with lively elements, rich details and an overarching eco-conscious perspective that cherishes the touch of originality. The pantone colour of the year 2021—Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow give a saturated wash to the spaces, taking the stage as luxuriant luminaires or plush furnishings that ring the tunes of drama. Curves are embraced more than ever—cosy, cocooning solids shape a softer, dreamier aura in the homes. Crescent seaters and wingback chairs are revisited with an avant-garde eye for style.

Earthen palettes come out as the visually tranquilizing tones that comfort the space—Beige, Amber, Tan, Umber, Olive green and Terracotta red. There is a blend of subtleness and indigenous flavour in the earthy hues coming along as wall décor or a statement furniture. Patterns that remind the outdoors—the ocean and the tropics, come out with the thrust to revive the ambience as wild florals or botanical abstracts in the backdrop. The elements are lured by everything ‘green’.

Spaces are made more breathable with green pockets that rejuvenate the interior. Cactus, Calathea and Ferns in bright ceramic pots are a contemporary garden phenomenon. Natural wood, brass and terracotta escort the flora with indigenous aesthetics. A terazzo planter is an ultra-chic beaut that outshines the famed, luxe show of the material’s medley on the walls and the floors. The garden furniture takes the form of the artisanal pieces with hand-weaved rattan and other eco-materials that celebrate the ties to nature. 

The summer of 2021 shall see the designers take a significant leap from the yesteryear styles such as Cottage core, to a more vogue scene. The style’s sublime and romantic reimagination of simplicity in lifestyle, gets a refined makeover with Rustic Vogue that marries glam and craftsmanship. The artisanal touch is still glorified in the fabrics wrapping the space as curtains and floor mats. The furniture standing on the picturesque podiums are more inclined towards the sophistication attribute of the style, brought by a mattified skin.

A personal touch to the cherished elements belonging to the past is bestowed upon the spaces by the Grandmillennial style. The edgy collections with a dainty backdated appeal bring back the wood, the wallpapers and the upholstery. There is a power play with soft curves and sharp geometry on an assortment of accessories—the mid-century classics celebrating the muse and the vibrant colour choices. Remisced by the Grandmillennial trends is Maximalism—a cheerful, aesthetically abundant collection of décor that celebrates the florals, wild figurines and metallic accents. There is a soft spot for extravagance, brought by layering of elements, their curation and intricacy that reflect on a sentimental note. A more intimate, nostalgic recall of brute stonework and hardwood along the furniture underlines the trace of Contemporary Country style in the interiors. With the country remix, a space finds the old-world charm in a contemporised palette that has more room for leather-upholstered armchairs, antique armoires, hand-scraped timber consoles.

The summer trends find a sophisticated, à la mode indulgence into the eco-beliefs with natural dyes and organic fabrics such as hemp, linen. The trails of eco-chic style are left by the dexterity with the greens—houseplants in brushed brass or polished marble décor. The space revels in the interior palette reigned by the shades of nature across the blues, greens and the neutrals.

Eris Home is synonymous with sustainable luxury and its spring-summer collection stays true to that commitment

Even before the pandemic brought issues like sustainability and fair practices in the world of luxury to the forefront, Sanjana Lunia – Founder and Creative Head of Eris Home had made her conscientious commitment tangible through her responsible luxury brand Eris Home. In fact the brand name itself is a word play on ‘Eri Silkworms’, which yield silk that is often referred to as the ‘fabric of peace’.

Eris Home stands for ‘luxury shouldn’t kill’, it takes pride in the fact that not a single silkworm was harmed in the making of its products. Unlike traditional sericulture practices, Eris silkworms naturally leave their cocoons and progress to the next step in their life cycle, leaving behind their cocoons to be woven into yarn which has a beautiful matte finish. This unique sericulture technique is practiced by only a handful globally.
Eris Home is a retail venture of Eris Global- founded in 2017, with the aim to introduce the world to the beauty of Ahimsa Silk. Eris Global manufactures and exports furnishing fabrics to the US and the Middle East.

Eris Home’s Spring-Summer collection features nine bedcovers, each with a unique story to tell. The ‘Cocooned in Luxury’ collection has three ahimsa silk jacquard bed covers which can double as quilts. The woven patterns on them are inspired by the magnificent show that nature puts on display. For instance the greyish-blue bedcover ‘Somber Sky’, is reminiscent of a cloudy morning that invokes the desire to laze in bed a few moments longer. In contrast, the combination of cream, orange and teal in the ‘Orange Sunset’ tells the tranquil tale of the sun when departing the day. ‘Sandhills’, third in the collection, is inspired by the unique impressions created by the ebb and flow of desert sand.

With mother nature’s striking minerals as its muse, the ‘Mineral Pallete’ collection features six blended cotton bedcovers that are sure to appeal to a wide audience. It’s available in soothing colors such as powder pink, sea green, cream and mustard yellow. 

To add flare to any room, Eris Home’s Spring-Summer collection has accent pillows that are packed with personality. The finds include Lumbar cushion covers called ‘Allure’ characterized by embellishments, embroidery or beadwork. Turn to the Origami and Unicolor cushion covers for well-designed comfort and to satisfy your plush-loving imagination.

“We are committed to respecting our surroundings and that commitment is reflected in not only how we treat materials but also how we treat our people. Even before the pandemic, we strived towards sustainability. Every small step in the direction was wrought with challenges, which we graciously embraced. With this latest collection we aim to introduce, educate and adorn Indian homes with durable and beautifully crafted non-violent silk bed covers and cushions,” says Sanjana Lunia, Founder and Creative Head, Eris Home.

Ellementry — an Eco-Conscious Brand

Bringing joy and romance to mundane routine life with their handcrafted home ware products has been lifestyle brand Ellementry’s endeavour since its inception two years back. Their beautiful product line-up — which combines utility and beauty — includes tableware, furniture and lighting. What makes them more special is the fact that all of them are handmade; each imperfectly perfect, and unique. As Ellementry employs rural artisans for their products, every product showcases traditional handcrafted techniques with modern sensibilities.

What lies in the heart of every single product created at Ellementry are the materials — they are crafted from natural organic materials. The processes too ensure no harm to the environment. Moreover, every material used in the products is food safe; safe to serve in and safe to cook in. Always exquisitely crafted, their products are about harmonious living spaces that are in harmony with nature.

“Sustainability is at the heart of Ellementry,” says Ayush Baid, founder of Ellementry. We make terracotta products that are again a form of art that echo a life devoted to the ancient traditions of working in clay. Be it stoneware or earthenware, all are sourced from the earth, and when their use is over, they return to the earth. Not just this, we even recycle newspaper in our papier-mache unit to make beautiful handcrafted products.” 

He further adds, “We’ve created an eco-mix by combining waste generated from factories like marble dust, wooden dust and old textile with recycled newspapers and other sustainable materials. Our surplus production is utilised by us for our meals and guests. For our display, photo shoots and set ups, we use all the waste and recycled wood that gets collected in the factories, giving them a new life. For example, during Christmas, we made Christmas trees made out of recycled wood and displayed it in all our stores.” For our furniture and kitchenware wood products, we mostly use mango wood, which is highly sustainable due to its cultivation as a fruit tree. 

Our wax filled jars are multi-purpose once the wax is over and can be further used for different purposes. Moreover, we use recyclable cotton bags in our retail stores.

Along with creating sustainable products, Ellementry also maintains an eco-friendly workplace. Their office is not only surrounded by trees, they also encourage their neighbours and people in the locality by initiating plantation drives to reduce carbon footprints. Moreover, 70% of power they use in their office and workshops come from solar panels. Through rainwater harvesting, and by building a green house in the premises, they further contribute to saving the environment.

The three styles resemble chicness in their own unique way. 1) An infinitely charming monotone bedroom is decorated with a delicate chandelier and a pretty backdrop made of a floral wallpaper and glass with metal trims. The cove lighting enhances the subtle beauty of the wallpaper and the way it has been treated.   

2)A patterned stone flooring sets a dynamic stage for a fine fusion of classic and contemporary features in this bedroom overlooking the green exterior. The stone side tables and the modern chaise in an organic shape add definite style. 

3)Immersed in a brown palette with a laminate wall paneling and wooden flooring, this chic bedroom comes alive with a large, colourful painting.

But, at the same time, they will suffuse beautiful homes with an individualistic style that echoes their artistic ethos and stand the test of time.

The mood-invoking cushions are weaved with threads seeped in soft pinks, soothing reds, warm greys and elegant ivory. The floral patterns are a fresh reimagination of Sarita Handa’s iconic and effortless approach to home décor. The capsule collection is also characterized by rich velvet quilts, a stylish addition to a living room or a lounge area. Showcased in white and red with a striking graphic design, they are perfect for a winter evening.

The most Iconic Home decor brand Orange Tree unveils Minoo Collection

Orange Tree has launched its beautiful Minoo collection of lamps and lanterns. Founded by Gaurav Jain with Nikita Bansal as its Head of Design, Orange Tree is a domestic retail venture of furniture and Interior accessories company Basant that was started by Gaurav’s father Mr Vinay Kumar at Jodhpur, Rajasthan in 1998. Over a span of 22 years, Basant has made a mark across 17 countries through its design and craftsmanship and has worked with International clients such as Crate and Barrel, Westelm, Pottery Barn, H&M Home and Zara Home. The founder Vinay Kumar had a vision to start a brand in the domestic market that would bring global trends and designs in the same quality at competitive prices to the Indian audience. This thought inspired Gaurav to start Orange Tree in 2014. Driven by a strong environmentally conscious philosophy, Orange Tree believes in strong ties between culture, craftsmanship and industry, nurturing emotion and sensitivity in design and interpreting global trends that are contemporary in form but handcrafted in spirit.

“With the onset of globalisation years ago, the world became a smaller place and India became fastidious about global designs and future trends. There was a perceivable shift in the design sensibilities of the Indian audience and that was the start of Orange Tree, an Indian retail venture for contemporary craft with a universal appeal.”  Shares– Gaurav Jain – Founder, Orange Tree.

The Minoo collection (where Minoo means Heaven or Paradise in Persian) is a union of multiple ranges that are all unique in style; design and materiality but together embody a minimalist yet glamorous spirit. Taking inspiration from the Art Deco movement of the 1920’s, each piece from this collection is reminiscent of the positivity, playfulness, opulence, and the promise of a new future that defined this movement“Each design is meticulously hand made by our team of skilled artisans. The relative simplicity, planarity, meditative symmetry and unvaried repetition of elements come together to create this range” explains Nikita Bansal, Head of Design, Orange Tree.

Leaving no details or elements forgotten, this collection features artistic and well-rounded products — wall sconces, table lights, floor lamps, pendants and chandeliers — each and every piece, guided by Gaurav and Nikita’s eye for perfection. The Klimt Collection within the Minoo series is a symbolic representation of the 19th-century art movement of Impressionism characterized by small, thin brushstrokes and shifting light. The dark-hued layered pendant lights in the collection are a natural beauty. The sleek, conical, nickel-finished reading light in the Chrysler Collection shares its influences with the European Art Déco style and its name with the New York skyscraper. Taking forward the Art Deco inspiration, the Arch Collection features lamps with clean, bold, concentric lines.

The Deco hanging lamp in the Prerit Collection is meticulously hand woven in golden wires in meditative symmetry. Light filters through its many layers creating an ambience of positivity in the room. Imagining a conscious future, the Monet collection honours the humble cane in the form of a simplistic floor lamp. Additionally, the beautiful cane and wood are weaved together in the stunning, geometric pendant designs of the New Kyoto Collection. Cane takes on a more glamorous form in the Wave Collection’s hanging light where the eco-friendly material is woven into an innovative 3D wave pattern that is sure to add panache to your favourite corner. Interestingly, Orange Tree has introduced 2 new techniques – paper mache and meenakari, two stunning examples of eco-friendly craft techniques, to their repertoire of chic and conscious lighting.

Orange Tree prides itself as a brand that leads with its heart, nurtures the soul and celebrates the spirit of design while trying to maintain a balance between the ecosystem and the economy. At a time when the country and the world at large faces threats in the form of the pandemic, natural disasters due to climatic changes and water shortage, the heavenly Minoo collection is a small attempt at bringing some light, some cheer and some hope into one’s heart and home.

Written by Jatin Kapoor, these stories are a range of luxury furniture pieces that are contemporary yet functional. The storytellers are their craftsmen that breathe form, artistry, detail and purpose into each creation. Like most Indian crafts, metalworking is a time-honoured tradition, passed down from one generation to the next. From the bidri work of Andhra Pradesh to the brassware of Moradabad, India’s expert craftsmen work wonders with metal. The design house has given a new lease of life to the old-school art of Indian metalworking by translating it into spectacular craft-intensive furniture with universal aesthetics.

Each piece of furniture is a medley bringing together varied materials in the design process to add to the character with contrasting textures and unique finishes. Techniques such as fusion of metal and wood, contrast of glossy and Matt surfaces, uniquely tinted wood as well as leather accents have been used to make the furniture come alive. The colours are understated and neutral with little pockets of pop to add accent. The design house is a one stop solution from a-z of design from conceptualization to the final installation.

The collection includes monoco dining table features distinctive spiral legs in stainless steel with a brass finish, Valentina couch, Agate chair, I’m bored bed and Flute bar is ideal for homes that desire a sleek and compact bar unit, which is still functional and beautifully designed.

Splendid with Gold Touch

Gold is the new black was the idea and concept of Shilpi Sonar, The founder of CREATIONS. The 10,000 sq. ft. bunglow from Chattisgarh speaks about luxury and exquisite interiors. It was the expertise of Mrs. Sonar that transformed the space not only with alluring beauty but also keeping up with the fact ‘ Home is where you live in.’

Founded in 1988, CREATIONS is an award-winning & premium design firm that was first incepted in Nagpur & later rechristened in Raipur in the year 1997. Renowned for its creativity, high-end finishes, and attention to detail, CREATIONS is a studio well regarded for its highly tailored and personalized design strategies. A pioneer in the AEC Industry, Mrs. Shilpi Sonar is an illustrious & highly distinguished Interior Designer of Central India.

Carving her way past innumerable challenges like starting over in a small town, commuting between her job and family, or even being duped in the early stages of her career, Mrs. Sonar has been the driving force behind the interior design world for a long time. Known for her positivity & effervescent personality, she is a living legend. Her contributions to the design industry are far stretched & encompass the teaching domain too. She has played the role of a guide & mentor to future interior designers through innumerable seminars & orientations. Motivated to spread her knowledge & nuances of Interior Design she laid the foundation stone of her institute ‘Aesthetic Institute of Design’, Raipur, in the year 2009. Shilpi Sonar with her Midas touch has very well defined the Moroccan Theme and explains the hues as ‘Gold is the New Black’.

With the sole aim of upgrading the lifestyle of Raigarh, a small town famous for its steel & coal reserves, Shilpi Sonar – Founder & Creative Director of Creations has dug out pure gold from the black mines! Armed with her signature expertise & prowess, Shilpi approached the project like a blank canvas & worked tirelessly to craft the perfect residence. Built over a sprawling 10000 square feet, this bungalow is the most flamboyant residence the city of Raigarh has ever seen. The client dreamt of an abode that lifted their lifestyle and also enunciated their growth. They particularly wanted ornamental decor which a place like Raigarh had not yet witnessed. Two years of consistent hard work & diligence is what it took to transform the client’s dream into a regal Moroccan fantasy. The design cues were inspired by the riads of Marakkech and elements of Casablanca. The dexterity of Mrs. Sonar’s creative process was to imbibe Moroccan motifs to a superlative traditional Indian pattern.

Throwing light on her belief in the project, Shilpi says “Often luxury interiors have been limited to tier 1 and tier 2 cities, but the concept of luxury often changes when we move to a tier 3 city like Raigarh. I choose to believe that everybody has the right to enjoy a grand home if they choose to have one, and I am working very hard to make sure every dream expressed to me is realized to its full potential.”

Shilpi Sonar, Founder, CREATIONS

Combining the elements of luxury and uncomplicated yet intricate designs, Mrs. Shilpi has yet again weaved her magic in this project. As one enters the house, there is a clear distinction made between the foyer and the living space. Emblems symbolizing Morrocan royalty have been used as a subtle demarcator to differentiate the hallway and living area. Such minute yet ingenious separations are made throughout the bungalow which divides it into public, semi-public, and private spaces. The entrance leads directly to the living room which has ornamental wall panels coated with silver leafing that are carved to perfection. The living room has been crafted with excellence, as it overlooks the sprawling lawn. 

Underscoring the twin values for comfort and opulence, Mrs. Shilpi has constructed the massive double-height dining room with a glimmering chandelier backed by a hand-painted mural. Following the theme of hand-painted murals, the bungalow has hand-painted ceilings, and metal cutworks that mimic the Moroccan motifs. A team of experts, local artisans have designed and constructed elaborate woodwork. 

No element of the bungalow has been underlooked – multiple color schemes are used to emphasize grandeur and coziness. Just like palaces, each room has its theme and motif that suits the nature of the rooms. Aristocratic colors like gold, champagne, and silver have been used for leafing to produce an aura of sophistication. However, one cannot ignore how inconspicuously rich colors like red & blue and soft colors like blue & pink have been incorporated into these spaces to break the heaviness of the aristocratic colors. They also serve to enhance the imperial aura of the bungalow. The restrooms have stunning details in the form of colorful marble designs and moldings. The master restroom has a jacuzzi and a steam room, which screams splendor. Even the window in the corner has patterns inspired by Marrakech.

The bedrooms are exuberant miracles in themselves. Similar to the rest of the bungalow, they have hand-painted ceilings, ornamental headboards, and state-of-the-art televisions. To make the bungalow look immersed in liquid gold, Mrs. Shilpi has installed 9 feet tall windows to allow abundant natural light. As Raigarh is located in the sultrier areas of India, drapes have been designed to keep the scorching summer sun out, and have danglers with Arabic motifs. 

“The thing about designing a residence of this magnitude and luxury is that every bit has to be thought in multiple layers. For example, we have not only customized the woodworks, glassworks, stone works, mirror works which are common for most designers but we have to dive in deeper where we were designing custom towels, bedroom linens, curtains and to top it all we were associated with selection of crockery to go along the royal dining space.”- Shilpi Sonar

Every nook and corner has been paid heed to. Right from the floor to the ceilings, the linens, everything is handwoven and hand-picked. While delivering this bungalow, Mrs.Sonar has displayed immaculate designing skills at every step of the way & successfully crafted the palace of her client’s dreams.

A Trip to a Modern Eclectic Style

Comfort and luxury is the new address for this exceptional project designed by Amardeep Gulri. The Omaxe Forest Spa, a 3bhk modern style apartment is a fusion of subtle and vibrant palette.

As the founder and principal Designer of New Delhi based Deco-Arte , Amardeep may be considered a maverick by some because design just comes to him by looking at an empty space or bare shell .What set Amardeep apart from others is that he has no precedent and that has made him design and execute over 500 projects in the Residential, Hospitality, Commercial & Retail Space each unique and different from the other.

Projects, Furniture, Project Cost Consultancy offering bespoke solutions for residences, restaurants, offices, hotels, and retail showrooms. Everything he has created is from his my own imagination and immense passion for design and interiors.

On working on the current project, in the culturally rich town in Faridabad, Amardeep Gulri shares his thought and ideas while highlighting about the aesthetics of the project and his experience. “In a modern style house, all the design elements should be in harmony with each other. We have tried to keep the design uncomplicated by avoiding too many separations such as long corridors or passages and have covered the spaces using mock fireplace and console. The idea was to use the spaces efficiently so that each of them can be put to the maximum use.”

Adding to it, the designer mentions, “By working together with our client and getting to know the requirements, created a beautiful and functional house that is a true representation of the modern design style. “

Modern houses have larger concentrations of neutral colors such as cool whites, beige, light grey an cream, but the splendid resident witnesses splashes of bright or flashy colors, so long as they don’t dominate the design in the upholstery and artworks. The interiors have spaces that are adequately illuminated and structured to exhibit paintings or sculptures. the main focus was to bring out the contemporary style with simplicity, subtle sophistication, deliberate use of texture, and clean lines.

THINKCUTIEFUL designs a playroom for two sisters

Delhi based Design studio ThinkCutieful, specializing in creating beautiful spaces for children, has completed décor of a modest playroom making it easy for a kindergartener and a toddler to play, scribble, exercise and relax within the safety of their home environment. A playroom, which is as fun as it is functional, is the best gift the parents could give their kids this Children’s Day. Thinkcutieful, a mother and baby design company Founded in 2009 by Ms. Romilla Tewari – a pioneer in the field of children’s environments

The light-drenched space has been designed keeping in mind the age and interests of the two children. The star of the area is the built-in elevated loft, which makes them feel like they’re on a new adventure every day. The multi-purpose landing underneath the loft is converted into a cosy tent apt for all kinds of pretend play or as a safe nook to share giggles and secrets with friends.

The rest of the room has an art display corner with a magnetic board, built-in bookshelf for storytime, a rock-climbing wall to release all that pent-up energy, and a two-seater swing for calming down (finally!). The result is a creative amalgamation of active playtime activities for the older one while adhering to safety measures necessary for the toddler.

“Today’s parents are very design savvy. Their personal style and aspirations flow into the nursery or playroom as well. We took note of that and produced the overall aesthetics of the room. This was done without losing on the elements of fun the children need. The calming tones made sure the room is not over stimulating and emotionally engaging. But, then again, there are nooks and corners where the sisters can bond, play together and make a mess without any restrictions,” says Romilla Tewari, Founder and Creative Head, Thinkcutieful.

Soothing mint and grey are used to break the monotony of white. And, the soft vinyl flooring in a warm wooden shade was added to break the impact of a fall. Accents in gold add drama, glitz and a hint of luxe. Ms Tewari did not limit the design to feminine palette and patterns so that the playroom is not a stark departure from the rest of the house.

Little curios like starry lights under the loft, pre-quilted mattresses for that extra touch of safety and lots of shelves for storage are simple yet key elements that will keep the room fun and uncomplicated. To enhance the feeling of belonging for the girls is a striking gold-encased heartfelt quotation as a focus point with their names on either end of the same wall.

With their efficient layouts, uplifting color palettes, bespoke furniture, and strategic lighting schemes, they are the masters of creating ever-lasting impressions. From inception to execution, conceptualization to curation, they undertake complete turnkey projects for villas and apartments, hence bringing dreams to life. They have dominated the interior design industry for more than a decade now, making them the most sought-after name in the field of Luxury interiors in Bangalore.

Spread across a sprawling 3400 square feet, this Bangalore home is a celebration of a tangible humbleness amalgamated with a dash of modernity. For entrepreneur cum designer Abhishek Chadha, the aspiration was for a space that was deeply embedded in the mid-century style culture. The designer incorporated eclectic design with a fusion of upscale & contemporary interiors that blends well into the theme. Team ‘The KariGhars’ perfects the narrative of a modern-day abode that is warm, eclectic & dramatic. The team exceptionally marries texture, materials & different finishes for a style that is distinct yet inviting. The client envisioned a space that was a perfect mix of contemporary sophistication along with being quiet, idyllic & in many ways a luxurious retreat.
As one enters this 4 BHK house, the foyer serves as an interesting play of space.

A unique seating arrangement greets the visitors that also accommodates a provision for storage. Along with the seating arrangement is a console table which is the hardest-working & utilitarian piece in the furniture catalog. This console blends well with its surroundings & is capable of multiple functions throughout the space. Moving on, the living room is done up in an eclectic decor that transcribes harmony and the coming together of disparate styles, juxtaposing textures, and contrasting colors. A special focus has been laid on creating a cohesive, beautifully realized room that wouldn’t be out of place in a home since this genre of design style takes verve and a great fascination to the eye.

The highlight of the living room is the accent color wingback chairs next to an ultra-modern coffee table. A plethora of elements has been used in the room, for instance, an antique clock on the wall, a wallpaper that serves as a focal point on the accent wall, beautiful pendant lights that leads onto the dining room. Further, a buddha statue decorated with artifacts serves as a partition between the living & dining room.

The delicate nature of this scheme is absolutely special!
The dining room is the most happening space of a residence. The owners gather in this space & spend considerable time chatting whilst enjoying a meal & relishing a drink! The KariGhars have kept in mind the needs of their client & designed a flawless space for them to luxuriate in. The bar area just next to the dining table is aesthetically pleasing & adds to the regal nature of the expanse. The kitchen is one such area that caters to a variety of functions like cooking, washing a place of storage, a stovetop, an oven, a workstation to cut vegetables, etc. Not only do all these functions need different equipment and also the lighting requirement would differ for each of the functions.

The KariGhars have covered all the aspects of a multifunctional & smart kitchen. Adept with state-of-the-art equipment & built over clean lines, it sure packs a punch. Abhishek believes that homes store everything that we all our own, from the people to the things. In this residence, he decides to spruce up the space & adds warmth by creating comfortable corners within the expanse. Decorating them with small knickknacks & personal memorabilia, he transforms the space into a rich & elegant space. The furniture he has used throughout this residence is a fusion of mid-century modern & contemporary styles.

Mixing and matching different furniture design styles was a fun and clever way to master a beautifully realized eclectic home décor. The master bedroom is a concoction of elegance & grandeur. As it is a space for multiple activities, there is ample provision of artificial lights in the night as well as natural light during the day time. A subtle color palette has been chosen for the bedroom & the ceiling offset the colors in the room through cove lighting. The room has adequate storage in the form of a big floor to ceiling mirror wardrobe with a touch of veneer & side drawers in multiple locations throughout the space.

The kid’s bedroom is nothing short of a spectacle. A cheerful yellow & blue color scheme was chosen & bunk beds encompassing the shape of a hut were provided. The pendant light atop the wooden structure creates an impression of different shadows that leaves the onlookers spellbound. The USP of this luxurious abode is the home office. Its a private enclosure that can be used to work from home & other research work. They have made sure there is an unrestricted movement for the users & ample storage space by giving enough shelves & drawers. Owing to the pandemic that has affected the whole world at large, home offices are the need of the hour.

Another special feature of the house is the sustainability factor that is incorporated into the furniture placed on the terrace. It was made out of reclaimed wood that gave an elegant look to the balcony. This type of furniture is completely eco-friendly and depicts a traditional look. The KariGhars’ focus was not just to deliver a design but create an epitome of quality while making it a memorable experience.

Creativity is the process of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. It is determined by the ability & yearning to perceive the world in new ways, which can be achieved by finding hidden patterns & making connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena with the intent to generate solutions.

This residence is a personification of all the virtues the KariGhars stand by. Even a global pandemic could not stop them from delivering this project on time, as promised to the client. Such is their commitment to an impeccable record of customer satisfaction. The KariGhars is a brand name that is synonymous with opulence & grandeur.

The plethora of intangible factors of design is given equal importance as the tangible ones by Ar. Anurag & Ar. Pallavi Pashine. 

Built-in a commodious 2950 square feet area, the Pashine Residence originally was a 4  bedroom apartment; amalgamated now to formulate a 3 BHK by demolishing the common wall encasing one of the bedrooms.

An attractive contrast has been created with white shutters for counters on the underside and translucent shutters for the overhead counters. The use of open shelves minimizes the bulk of overhead storage and the black granite marble countertop accents a stark contrast to the white interiors. Elaborating on the flooring design a common theme has been followed throughout the expanse. All the common areas have Italian flooring & all the bedrooms are done up in wooden flooring.

The bedrooms follow the narrative of a modern minimalistic residence that is made with a consistent expression throughout. The primary bedroom or the master bedroom displays a peculiar subtleness and exudes a warm tranquil vibe. It has a life-sized portrait of the couple which is a window panel. The master bedroom has a terrace attached to it which is beautifully decorated with plantations & adept with outdoor wicker furniture for seating purposes. The elder son’s bedroom is a marvel in white that defines his persona aptly. The bed back is done up in white leather cladding diffused with lights. The decor of the room is predominantly white which complements his peaceful nature. However, the younger son’s bedroom is a total contradiction. A play of colors and amalgamation of contrasts mark the wonderful charm of the bedroom. An interesting feature of his room is that the immovable furniture is more on the lines of a mature color palette & material. The colorful furniture can be changed and replaced as per requirement when he grows up. The room also has a wardrobe made of the whiteboard on one panel and can also be used for storage purposes. In addition to this, the residence has a family TV room that is used to relax. It has a unique statement piece of furniture in the form of a grey quirky armchair and an L-shaped sofa. The prayer room forms a part of the central area of the residence comprising of a utility cabinet, used for various purposes.

This residence by Salankar Pashine & Associates has been designed keeping in mind all the sensitivities of their family and is a perfect example of an elegant and luxurious housing with modern amenities and a well-contemplated space curation that allows the inhabitants to use all areas of the home.


Capturing the Colonial Contour

As India moves forward into a new era. The interaction between architecture, design and ergonomics has to be redefined. The new office and business space has to respect spatial constraint while adhering to the new social distancing norms. New business solutions also have to include facilities to ensure a seamless transition from physical to digital to help manage the new work from home compulsions. IPCSOL are building world class solutions for the next generation of Indian entrepreneurs with a focus on using locally sourced material and in-house expertise.

IPCSOL – the end to end solution providers for Project and contract management is a path-breaking industry leader. The company boasts of an exceptional track record of 100 percent on time delivery with intricate client involvement.

Mr. Vivek Bansal, Founder and Principal Director, IPCSOL, mentions, “Every challenge is an opportunity for us to be better. The current situation has nudged us to rethink and reinvent. We have used our experience to re-imagine the work and business space of the future. Our clients are shifting towards a smarter, safer workspace and we are proud to be entrusted with the challenge. We have incorporated the most stringent standards of social distancing while managing cost to extend savings to our clients.

MG motors has recently launched the brand in India. IPSCOL Project Management Company took over the job of constructing and designing their new office and flagship store. Keeping in mind the international standards of the brand every space was designed to suit its motive. Right from the medium sized place to look airy and lighted up to evoke feelings of positivity and tranquility, yet, be professional and trendy. All technological advancement were made in accordance to the new guidelines.

The colonial look has been very well transpired in the space. Bell structure and different kinds of interiors adds oomph to the space. The rugged road look exemplifies the logical reasoning to the design. The highlight of the space is the mirroring of the cars which makes it diverse from any other showroom. The color palate is struck in balance with the brand color which is red and beige defining positivity and tranquility. The shades of beige to off whites to pastels punctuated with bright colored corners to reflect happy moods.

Being the car showroom, the layout has a welcoming vibe, a customer would like to experience. A café set up in a commercial space is a well thought gesture. A roman look at the café gels well with the colonial theme with lush green and a display of MG motors historic achievements.

The major inspiration was the brand which is famous for its creativity and space management infused with technical brilliance in Auto space. The USP was a quiet waterfall on the reception wall that denoted peace on the front wall that lent its beauty and charm in an otherwise uptight professional technical setup.While, social distancing and space constraints had to be intelligently balanced out, the colonial look of the space takes us back down the memory lane.

Plüsch Launches Iconic Dining Tables by Draenert

Plüsch, pioneers in bringing some of the finest German luxury brands to India, has introduced iconic dining tables by Draenert, the internationally famed German company for its superior quality furniture.

For the last 50 years, Draenert has earned the position of market leaders, especially for their stone dining tables. Using about 200 types of exotic natural stones from across the world, Draenert has elevated dining tables to iconic standards. The dining tables introduced in India – Adler and Victor – further attest to the brand’s mastery over the craft.

ADLER: Since its launch 25 years ago, Adler, with a stunning stone top and innovative extension mechanism, has set unbelievable benchmarks for the rest. A clear design language and the masterful technique employed make it a class apart. Over the years, it has evolved to become highly customizable. With the help of the patented extension mechanism, the two halves of the table top extend synchronously in a jiffy, so that you have a 370-cm-long table. The center-leaf is lifted by a simple rotary movement.This versatile model offers the customers the option of choosing from more than 180
types of stones from all over the world. It also comes with five different bases, various shapes of the edges and the top and several sizes.

‘Back to Nature’ by 42MM Architecture

New Delhi-based firm 42mm Architecture unveils the chic rustic interiors of a city home that is sure to resonate deeply with people who, in a post-Covid world, are leaning towards a more natural look.

As some of us embrace the “Back to Nature” philosophy for a sense of harmony and calmness during these unprecedented times, this house designed with a raw and rustic palette, without a rigid layout, strikes an instant chord. There is beauty, charm and creative freedom in the way the space is defined, with room to alter it in the future.

The flexible layout allows the client to interpret the space in their own way, and also offers a sense of dynamism that accommodates the changing needs of the user with time. It is a canvas that is complete in its totality, yet provides enough option to the end-user to add their own flavour.

Rustic spaces by nature are made up of myriad contrasting textures and finishes, hence natural light is important to balance the visual weight imparted by these elements. The large windows allow the designers to capture the distress and quaint feel of a lived-in home.

The colour palette is muted, with the natural and neutral hues mostly in contradiction with each other. No saturated shades around. The décor is a composition of materials in their natural form – wooden paneling and ceiling, industrial style lights, natural flooring, etc. It is a representation of the old and new materials running parallel to each other, yet in coherence.

Accessories give the space its soul – handcrafted, rustic, distressed finished metal articles that resonate with the user, and add character to the space. Care is taken to capture the experiences, aspirations and interactions of the users. Since the materials are in their natural form, they are much easier to maintain and are less expensive than regular glossy and finished homes. The ageing and weathering of the natural materials compliment the house, adding to its story.

Asian Paints launches a new service to create the home of your dreams

The new normal of living primarily at home has people rediscovering the
love for their home and personal space. The Indian consumer has always had a very emotional relationship with their home, making it not just a functional space but an expression of their personality and values. In the current context this relation has only amplified further. Asian Paints,

India’s largest paint and décor company, has always aimed at being an integral part of this home-making emotion. Taking this into account, Asian Paints launches a new, convenient and hassle-free service that enables
people to transform their homes the way they want. Asian Paints’ Beautiful Homes Service is an exclusive end-to-end solution that provides consumers a personalized interior design service with professional execution to create their dream home their way.

The journey to the creation of Beautiful Homes Service began several years ago when Asian Paints first segued into products other than paint, like Sleek brand of kitchens and the bath ware range. In order to better understand consumers and be part of their décor conversations, Asian Paints also launched beautifulhomes.com, a content and design editorial website, almost four years ago. Today, beautifulhomes.com is a community of close to a million followers and subscribers. The site’s design coverage and discussions have ensured that Asian Paints is able to communicate directly and hear their consumers. These diverse efforts to become a more intrinsic part of the Indian homemaking process culminates today in the launch of Beautiful Homes Service.

Asian Paints understands that every customer has their own unique style and personality that they wish should reflect in their interiors.

safety protocols introduced by Asian Paints.

Mr. Amit Syngle, MD and CEO, Asian Paints Limited said, “While Consumers today diligently pursue the creation of their dream home, seeking out that which reflects who they are, unfortunately they are left to
contend with templatized designs. Furthermore, the new normal has encouraged many consumers to engage with their homes and spaces in different ways. Homes have turned into offices, gyms, classrooms, and much more. This eclectic use of living spaces has further amplified the need for personalization in home design. At Asian Paints, it is our mission to not only empower the consumer to dream but to also bring those dreams to life. The Beautiful Homes Service will help people transform their homes in their way without worry.”

Ms. Manju Sara Rajan, Editor-in-Chief, Beautiful Homes commented, “Through our interactions with the beautifulhomes.com community of readers, including homemakers, designers and others, we know

The Rose Quartz collection by Khenshu flaunts semi precious stones

With a deep-rooted vision to revive the slowly-fading Indian art forms and their exquisite craftsmanship, Aishwarya Reddy launched Khenshu in November 2019 with its first flagship store at The Leela Palace, Bengaluru. Khenshu is a design house that creates beautiful pieces of furniture and décor accessories inspired from the meticulous architecture and decorative arts of bygone eras. Celebrating the nuanced workmanship of skilled Indian artisans who have worked in Royal palaces, the brand aspires to bring back the traditional opulence and culture of our country into contemporary settings.

Displaying ancient techniques, the Rose Quartz collection is moulded by Indian artisans; and flaunts an array of exquisite semi precious stones which are embellished on pure silver sheets.

Khenshu’s latest offering — Rose Quartz collection — witnesses a finessed amalgamation of Rococo and Neoclassicism styles which flourished during the reigns of the famous Louis XV and Louis XVI of France. Rose Quartz, or popularly known as the ‘love stone’ is a semi-precious gemstone which opens and heals the heart chakra; and is beautifully weaved into each of every single piece of furniture and accessory in this collection. The backbone of the collection and what gives it its distinct identity are the pure silver sheets which are used in the construction of the structure. To ensure that the product is long lasting the silver sheets are pasted on old building teak and are weathered through seasons to avoid expansion. The range is made entirely by skilled hands, and took over six months in the making.

Designed and crafted to fit into modern minimalistic spaces or grand contemporary settings; each piece is full of character, has wonderful stories to tell, and is most definitely a conversation starter. The fine ensemble includes consoles, mirrors, sofas, armrests, chaise loungers, bookends and table-lamps carved in pure silver using ancient techniques mastered by Indian artisans.

Celebrating Indian craftsmanship and world history, Founder & Creative Director, Aishwarya Reddy shares – “India has an abundance of heritage and craftsmanship to offer and it is our responsibility to support this. We are rebuilding a community of forgotten Indian artisans who’ve worked in palaces; and are reviving their crafts and highlighting and bringing forward their expertise.”

‘The Great Grand Gazebo’ by Karara Mujassme evokes decadence and timelessness

Architects have always used ornamentation to enliven and inform their work. The Greeks favoured caryatids, Gothic designers embraced gargoyles, and the Art Deco era saw the rise of pyramidal motifs. While architects and interior designers decorate homes with exquisite ornamentation, why should gardens be left behind? Enter the Great Grand Gazebo, an awe-inspiring marble gazebo crafted by Karara Mujassme. Established in 1995, Delhi-based Karara Mujassme offers timeless outdoor furniture and home decor products.

The Great Grand Gazebo is a pristine marble gazebo inspired by dreamy Victorian gardens. It is known as the Great Grand Gazebo as it is the third in a series of marble gazebos created by Karara Mujassme over its 25 year history. This majestic pavilion is the largest of the three, featuring 12 columns, and also boasts of detailed decorative elements. It has been crafted from Proconnesian marble from Turkey and it took 5-6 artisans over two years to complete this piece of art. The entire gazebo is made from the same lot of marble, therefore, the hue of the marble is uniform throughout the pavilion. The marble block was carefully selected from the mines, keeping in mind the desired colour and density. Additionally, the gazebo was carved using the age-old European technique of compass cutting.

The front and back façades of the gazebo are accentuated by exquisitely detailed Romanesque arches supported on columns. The arches are adorned with carvings depicting paradisiacal scenes complete with angels. The intricately crafted caryatid marble columns and floral details add elegance and artistry to the gazebo. Each column and arch is unique and features distinctive elements. For instance, the pavilion’s four main columns depict the four seasons—spring, summer, fall, and winter. Furthermore, small slabs of marble are placed between each column that can be used as holders for decorative pieces such as planters or urns. These platforms also offer a spectacular spot to sit and gaze out into the garden. They can serve as a perfect unwinding space for a family.

The Great Grand Gazebo by Karara Mujassme is an amalgam of impeccable artistry and exquisite design to evoke decadence and timelessness. It’s a thought-provoking and intriguing pavilion, with surprises sprinkled in every corner. The pavilion has been designed and crafted entirely in India by Indian artisans. With the Great Grand Gazebo, Karara Mujassme brings the charm of Europe to India. This gazebo is crafted to stand the test of time, and can withstand the extremes of climates as well as natural disasters. It is the ideal heirloom to be passed from one generation to the next.

An ode to the treasures

UDC Homes launches its new collection of wallpapers “Nuance” of untouched Mother Nature, expressed uniquely by each wallpaper. The designs are created from plant based fibres, which makes them environmentally sustainable.

An epitome of art in decor, UDC Homes has been at the forefront of innovative decor solutions for the past 25 years. One of India’s largest paint retailers for more than a decade, UDC Homes unveiled its wall coverings division in 2014. Believing in the philosophy that the perfect finishing touch enhances the ambiance of a space, the company designs and curates its wallpaper collection for retail and distribution to global retail giants.

Amid the unprecedented Coronavirus global lockdown, scenes worthy of a Disney film have emerged; from swans gliding through the now-clear canals of Venice and blue skies over the Himalayas where the air is usually choked with smog to the once endangered flora and fauna coming back to life. Additionally, there is a newfound love for Mother Nature. To celebrate this special bond between man and nature, UDC Homes has launched a new range of wallpapers known as the “Nuance Collection”. This range features wall coverings with nature-inspired designs—majestic mountains, expansive ocean waves and pristine forests with a plethora of vibrant animals and birds.

The wall coverings in this range exhibit UDC Homes’ trademark attention to detail, evoking iconic memories of being one with nature. Each wallpaper features an avant-garde wallpaper-making process. For instance, a design showcasing mountains features a fine metallic technique, which adds a magnificent sheen to the design. A wall covering portraying birds in a lush green forest has a novel surface print technology that gives the wallpaper a textured feel. Furthermore, the Nuance Collection’s designs are created from plant based fibres, which makes them environmentally sustainable. In addition, the wallpapers can be customised depending on the wall size, thus resulting in reduced wastage.

“The Nuance Collection is an ode to the treasures of untouched Mother Nature, expressed uniquely by each wallpaper. The Foliage-style prints of the wall coverings portray surreal scenes of animals and birds surrounded by natural vegetation that is almost lifelike. The range’s intricately designed motifs take viewers on a journey. These whimsical wallpapers showcase a paradisiacal scene of Mother Nature in all its glory. One can almost hear the birds chirping and smell the flowers as they soak in the awe-inspiring designs,” states Neha Jain, Co-founder, UDC Homes.

History has witnessed nature inspire the great Romantics at one point of time. So much so that resulted in a dedicated period of art and literature, filled with poems and plays, songs and sonnets, paintings and sculpture. Nature as a source of inspiration will probably live on forever. And when the end-products are exquisite thought-provoking and environmentally sustainable, like UDC Homes’ new Nuance Collection’s wall coverings are, we can’t help hoping that it does.

Entwining art and interiors

Just like every home has a story to tell, every art has its meaning, essence and inspiration. Art has the power to transform a plain canvas into a beautiful tale. Artemist, an art consulting company creates, curates and commissions art for apartments, offices, hospitality and more believes in bringing out the best considering all the factors like space, price, taste and requirement. Their motto ‘transforming spaces with art’ is a journey in itself. 

The Artemist with its exceptional sensibilities works closely with many artists and its various forms. Art has the power to enhance and compliment the interior spaces. It is through the choice of artwork that the personality of the client comes through, whether it is bold and abstract or detailed and traditional. Art also adds character to space and makes it your own. Currently, unique pieces of furniture, wallpapers and various treatments done by an interior designer are art in itself. Art and Interiors are interlinked in so many ways.

Elaborating further, art forms can be categorised distinctively including abstract, landscape, figurative, contemporary and Indian traditional art with mediums like oil, acrylic, watercolour, mixed media etc. Apart from paintings, there are also murals, sculptures, artefacts and digital art. The more you explore, the more forms and styles you get introduced to.

The significance of the space is defined by its form and art with its natural endurance highlights the magnificence. Let’s take the example of a cafe which also plays amazing music. The art in this café needs to communicate the vibe of a coffee shop, it can illustrate the process of how the coffee is sourced and roasted, can have a vibrant mural specific to the area where the café is located or have some music band-related poster art.

Whereas art for a bedroom will be more personal, it could be a couple’s portrait, or a memoir bought while travelling. Your personal space is somewhere you return to every day, so it needs to be in sync with your persona and something you wouldn’t get bored of too soon.

Speaking on the same, Ravina Drolia, Creative Head, mentions, “Sometimes our client is sure of a painting by their favourite artist they want to buy for their homes and they design the space keeping the painting in mind. While, it could be working backwards where we advise clients art basis the theme of their space. To sum it up, there is no rule of thumb in art consulting, we like to go with the flow, keeping our client’s preferences in mind.

We work with a plethora of artists from across the globe. Starting with local artists of Bengal and Indian folk artisans to contemporary artists from Europe, we promote all types of art depending on the vocabulary of each project we are working on. We have worked with many emerging artists whose works got attention and appreciation through our projects and communication, generating more work for the artist.”

Artemist caters to residential, commercial including offices, restaurants, educational institutes and public spaces before making a sale. Their close relationship with architects, interior designers, corporates and private clients help them understand their needs, commissioning and installing art for them.

The legendary Bernardaud continues to redefine style in the world of fine china with its contemporary and bold approach by inspiring and encouraging artists to venture into untested territory. The In Bloom collection by Zemer Peled is a similar story of creative adventure, where, movement and dynamism of her sculptural work beautifully translate on Bernardaud porcelain pieces. The vibrant blooms seem to spring from plates, cups, saucers and bowls in an enchanting style, as the artist plays with depth and perception in an evocative manner.

She learned to perform a quick, precise gesture and to perfectly control the pressure of her brush to achieve the desired effect: a decor where you feel the gesture and texture. The exceptional outcome is here for everyone to see and experience in the form of In Bloom.

Beyond Designs Unveils Artful Living Rooms

Renowned for their bespoke furniture and accessories, and luxurious and elaborately designed interiors, Beyond Designs has unveiled two living rooms that celebrate the rich art and crafts heritage of our country in contemporary settings.

Well-known for their masterful medley of art and crafts from around the world in the exquisitely crafted spaces they create, Beyond Designs yet again illustrates how modern interiors can be made richer and warmer by showcasing our unparalleled heritage of art and antiques. Even though the two living rooms stem from their penchant for layered and complex design, they are distinctly different, indicating that there is no end to the many ways in which you can imagine them.

A modern sofa in blue velvet upholstery, another with golden finish in a classical style on the opposite side, the round side table with blue and white lapiz, hint at the artful mix of styles. The flamingo artwork adds a modern touch. The intricate metal and crystal chandelier enhances the grandness of the atrium.

Authentic antique pieces sourced from Rajasthan are given a modern uplift by mounting them on a sleek iron frame to form an unusual backdrop to a contemporary living room. Part of Beyond Designs’ latest collection, Wild Rose, launched recently, the living room stands out with a magnificent coffee table where black marble is inlayed into white with an overlay of 4-mm thin brass wire that lends a luxe touch. The teak wood base features three legs each with brass shoes at the four corners. A modern sofa is paired with another in classical style with paisley upholstery and rivets. While the table lamps use an age-old material like beaten brass, they are fashioned into a very contemporary design. The wooden Panchamukhi horse sculpture adds a touch of traditional interest.


A Harmonious Fusion

A house can be made a home with the correct ambience, colour and mood, which imparts cosiness and comfort in the space rightly traced in Architect Nilanjan Bhowal’s recent project.

His vision is to create spaces that are exhilarating to experience while being functional and eco-friendly at the same time. His firm is involved in designing residential, hospitality, institutional and corporate building projects. He emphasizes on the design element and makes an effort to keep environmental sustainability as the basis of all his architectural creations. His design philosophy is Minimalistic and inspired by Nature.

Nilanajan Bhowal has donned the hat of Organitechture by creating a dictionary which reflects the core values of sustainability, comfort, art and modernity, in the contemporary designs. His projects like Green one, the first individual residence in India to have achieved a provisional 5 star SVAGRIHA rating & The Nest in Gurgaon has also received IGBC Green Homes Platinum Certificate.

The primary focus of Bhowal’s practice has been to evolve a language of architecture that is rooted with traditional learning, contextual material and sustainable construction methodology, together fused with the future ready technological comforts. All his projects exhibit the basic fundamental elements of our philosophy infused with the client’s belief and personality. The latest project is a duplex villa in Nirvana Country, a 300 acre township in Gurugram. “The overall image of the house is a product of thoughtful planning with creative ideas and details that reflect the belief of the clients infused with the imaginative thoughts of the designers. The strong trend of creating vibrant spaces with uplifting feel of sunshine hues to brighten up the spaces came into being. Also, the clients Sohini and Satindra Sen, whose design sensibilities matched ours and they gave us the creative freedom to create this earthy yet contemporary abode. ” Explains the architect.

The design ethos commands in crafting a proposition of a pleasant and luxurious living space offering the warmth and comfort of a home infused with elements of brilliance and technology in current times along with the artistic character and striking a balance without losing the heart of the ambience.

The interiors of the house follow a vivacious theme. The interiors of the living have white walls with yellow stone used on the flooring which is complimented with the rustic wooden furniture and fabric sofa sets, modern art paintings on walls, unique art pieces in jute and wood, creating a rejuvenating and warm space. Every space in the house offers a different character and serves a different purpose. The design also attempts to use old furniture pieces by refurnishing them in order to blend with the entire theme of the house. A lot of emphasis has been laid on walls, lighting, open shelving and display spaces. The interiors of the house have been designed in coherence with the idea of balancing and complimenting the artistic elements.

The USP of the house is the space with central staircase, the book shelf along with the distressed and raw finish console with metal chairs. This space with its unique combination and composition of materials and textures welcomes the inhabitants into the house.

This house exhibits a varying material palette. The material, texture and colour palette incorporated in the design undergoes variation ranging from rustic and earthy wood, jute, fabric and stone in flooring, furniture, art pieces etc., to modern and sleek metal in frames, artefacts, chairs, staircase railing etc. The colours used on fabrics and walls are given a break and twist with pop of colours on feature walls and in paintings and upholstery, rendering the house its vibrant and warm look and feel. This colour palette, however, was not a mandate. It evolved with the design process to retain a warm glow around the house keeping their existing paintings in mind.

This home is a canvas which has been sensitively designed to craft a harmonious fusion between the various materials and colours. The design exhibits the warmth and vibrancy of a creatively designed living space, balancing beauty and functionality.


Reminiscing experiences with spaces

Started in the year mid-2016, Hipcouch is an Interior Design Company founded by Indian School of Business alumni Parikshat Hemrajani and Pankaj Poddar. Hipcouch has designed spaces globally to provide data-driven and personalized custom-design solution as per the needs of the customer. Parikshat Hemrajani and Pankaj Poddar have an exceptional
understanding of crafting spaces while leaving no stone unturned. Their recent project is a splendid beauty surrounded by modern architecture carefully executed by the duo into a Coastal Hapston style apartment.

Pankaj Poddar, the co-founder of Hipcouch, the Interior Design Company shares, “There were a lot of structural issues that needed to be addressed on account of the building being a few decades old. The design vocabulary throughout the apartment is a Coastal Hampton style which inspires the use of browns, whites, greys and blues. What makes this very interesting is
that this color palette could be carried into every room irrespective of the age group of the people using the said rooms.”

The site is located in the heart of Malabar Hill, surrounded by these buildings from the 60s and 70s which was just the beginning of modern architecture in India. The house was initially designed by a designer which dated back 20-25 years with this great carrara marble flooring.
So, keeping that as an inspiration and the architecture around the building, the house was designed to resonate with the nuances of that early era of the 60s and 70s while keeping it modern at the same time.

The layout of the apartment was changed from a two bedroom to a three bedroom and the rest rooms were moved from their original locations along with creating a brand-new bathroom for the third room. Walls were torn down and there were plenty of columns and beams in large space between living and dining which were incorporated into the design. The edges and corner details made for aesthetics. They were painted the same colour as walls and ceilings to provide a flow between the entire space rather than making them stand out and break symmetry. Also, there were areas of the apartment that were taken in such as the windows in the living area and a balcony across the master wardrobe in the master bedroom.
The entire balcony stretch in the master bedroom was used as a walk-in wardrobe which is completely hidden from the main master bedroom area which not only makes the rest of the bedroom completely clutter free but also gives you a completely private walk-in wardrobe for yourself. In the living room, the windows were pulled down to create a level 1 sort of a
garden which you could look through from your living room and an entire corner was converted into a nice bar along with seating. Air conditioning was installed in that balcony area which was brought in the living room. So, even though the height of that portion was lower due to the air conditioning unit, it still blended seamlessly into the rest of the space
with only the grills being visible while not compromising the height of the rest of the living area either.

The modern classical look with a neutral colour palette, shades of grey and brown along with white to provide a balance to the ambience. The furniture is made in veneer with a distressed look, which simultaneously gives it the luxury and vintage feel. There’s use of cement finish
on the walls and also on furniture, which gives it the raw look and all the furniture also has duco finish along with panel shutters on the wardrobes which gives it the timeless look across the house. The kitchen also has a fairly pastel colour palette with mint green look on the shutters with white countertop and white tiles. The decor was sourced from different parts of
Malaysia, Indonesia etc. which adds to the overall aesthetic and warmth of the space.

Talking about this project, principal designer Rishita Das shares, “We retained bits of those elements and also drew inspiration from that. Because it was a brownfield project where we had an old apartment which we razed down almost completely and rebuilt the entire place, there were challenges that we came upon which helped us approach the project

Walter Knoll Launches Muud Sofa & Relax Armchair

German company Walter Knoll is a world leader in furniture with over 150 years of glorious history. They have launched a new set of living room sofa, Muud and armchair, Relaxchair, brought to India by Plüsch, pioneers in bringing the finest German luxury brands to the country.

With its maxim of “less is more” and “cultivating old virtues with new technology”, Walter Knoll is considered the masters of modernity. And with their commitment to sustainability and environmental compatibility, they have been certified as a climate-neutral manufacturer for years. Their latest offerings are an example of all that the brand stands for.   

Muud Sofa: Designed by EOOS, the Austrian designers Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann and Harald Gründl, Muud is a result of rethinking all the elements that make up a sofa. It is lightweight, soft, airy and perfectly comfy. The Muud sofa is designed to suit all urban, and even smaller-scale, floor plans.

The reduction of materials leads to a cozy and straightforward piece of furniture that is extremely multi-purpose. Use it for welcoming friends, reading, napping, or simply snuggling up with your loved ones. The récamière can be swiveled freely over the floor. With the new Dream Cushion, a down-filled cushion, the corner of the sofa can be given soft and stable padding.

Relax Chair

Designed by the Walter Knoll Team, it is elegant, inviting and ergonomic. With its perfect proportions, it can be an eye-catching accent chair, or a confident piece of furniture in an ensemble set-up. It is the kind of chair that makes you feel privileged to be sitting on it either for reading, musing or interacting with your family and friends.


Office Spaces for Post-Covid World

The post-Covid reality has gotten the New Delhi-based firm 42mm Architecture to think differently about the idea of an office space. They have come up with new concepts of co-working in a biophilic environment, while maintaining a safe distance that is the need of the hour.

The post-Covid world demands large open offices and many work stations parked together soon will be a thing of the past, as social distancing and reduced gatherings along with the recognition of effective remote working are becoming the norm. As a result, offices now tend to shrink in terms of physical space, housing fewer people at one point in time.

Henceforth, offices will transform into places where people will host meetings only when physical interactions are inevitable. People will now come to offices mostly when it is essential to interact with their team members, or clients, albeit, maintaining a safe distance. Hence, offices will now be equipped with multiple small meeting cabins with fewer workstations.

Therefore, 42mm has designed glass conference rooms to ensure seamless visual connectivity among the people while ensuring that the environments can be conditioned differently. The reception and waiting area are designed to ensure there is no congestion. The focus would be on creating extravagant cabins which are the owner’s den as the need for open work station areas would reduce drastically.

The interiors are designed in a biophilic framework to create a celebratory mood, bringing in nature – suspended planter beds and moss wall features are not just ornamental, but act as natural purifiers. Such a space is not only comfortable, but has also been proven to improve productivity. Materials like wood, concrete and metal are used in their natural form to demonstrate their inherent properties. A colour palette of muted and earthy tones of browns, greys and crimson red compliments the biophilic mood. So even as the concept of office spaces changes, they will become experiential work environments that can host multiple, yet controlled interactions.


A series of digital experiments by IKEA

With people spending more time at home than ever before, now is the time to act and learn more about the way we experience and engage with our homes. The web-based platform EverydayExperiments.com, launched today, gathers some of the most interesting technology and design studios to showcase a series of digital experiments that explore new ways of how we interact with the spaces we live in. The project is initiated by IKEA and its research and design lab SPACE10.

The explorative, surprising and playful experiments can be perceived on the platform that demonstrates how our homes can be experienced in extraordinary ways through the means of technology. Conducted by some of the world’s most innovative design and technology studios*, the experiments focus on AI, Machine Learning, Augmented Reality and cutting-edge Spatial Intelligence.

Technology is part of almost every aspect of our daily life and a driving force for innovation. But can we truly envision a world where tech helps us to live a better everyday life at home? Imagine using your mobile device as a tool to experience how sound moves around your space. What if you could turn your furniture into living creatures, to spark your children’s imagination? And what if you could control what spatially aware devices can sense and process in your home while making sure they respect your privacy? It’s about taking the everyday and making it extraordinary.

“The future home should be about the people first. It’s a place for everyone to be safe, to feel comfortable and in control. Technology is quickly becoming a vital part of the IKEA customer experience and home furnishing offer. Being a values-driven brand, we focus on people and planet.  As we enter a new digital era, we are also exploring new ways to create a better everyday life at home, while protecting people’s privacy.” — Fredrik Axén, Digital Manager Core Business Franchise, Inter IKEA Systems B.V.

Through projects with forward-thinking collaborators IKEA and SPACE10 aim to design innovative solutions for tomorrow. EverydayExperiments.comis a platform where design and technology studios come together to engage, spark discussions, challenge convention and inspire action through new collaborations. The collaborative experiments have been developed with the intention to create a better everyday life at home.

Living in the same space over years people become accustomed to their living environments and lose sight of the potential of their homes. How could we use technology to rediscover fresh ways of looking at our space to rethink our environment?

“Home – especially these days – plays an important role in how we develop our everyday interactions and relationships. It is not only the place where we live but the place where we work, teach our children and where we connect with the world digitally. We believe, the more we learn about the next curve of design and technological innovations, the more we can help people to make tomorrow’s life at home, and with each other, even better.” —Bas Van De Poel, Creative Director at SPACE10 The Everyday Experiments platform is launched today i.e. June 17th, 2020 and continuously shall showcase technological and innovative design experiments to spark new ways of looking at our homes and spaces we live in.

Participation Studios & Designers: Bakken & Baeck, Field, Random Studio, ManvsMachine, CIRG. Philip Pries Hennigsen, Strømlin, Set Snail, Alonso Holmes and Timi Oyedeji

Nivasa launches The Nivasa Foundation on World Environment Day

It’s time to re-evaluate how we build and how we live. It’s time we stop to think before we act, ask before we consume, and check before we discard; these habits will help us practice sustainability in its entirety. Now, more than ever, it has become even more crucial for designers, manufacturers and brands around the world to amplify their sustainability efforts. 

“We at Nivasa have been working on developing “The Nivasa Foundation” for almost a year, and the World Environment Day seemed like the perfect day to launch this endeavour. The Nivasa Foundation’s primary focus will be both environmental sustainability and social sustainability. Environmental sustainability is the key to creating an ecosystem where natural and man-made environments can co-exist. The first ensures low environmental damage and low carbon footprints. The latter will drive efforts to enhance lives of Indian craftsmen, artisans, sculptors and the artist. This turns will drive preservation of cultural beliefs, practices, crafts and heritage,” states Saba Kapoor, regarding the launch of The Nivasa Foundation.


The Nivasa Foundation is deeply grounded in the philosophy of ‘Make In India’— we are proud of our Indian roots, and want to continue to give back to our country the local economy and celebrating its immense heritage and talent. We strive to preserve age-old Indian crafts such as marble inlay, wooden carving, hand tufting, and embroidery that have seamlessly transcended generations of artisan families. We believe in marrying these traditional crafts with contemporary techniques and processes, in an effort to revive and reinvent craft-based production and help them stay relevant in today’s world. While our furniture pieces already incorporate these traditions, going forward, with the Nivasa Foundation, we plan on launching collections focused on preserving these crafts under the umbrella of ‘Nivasa Conscious‘. The proceeds of these special collections will go directly towards the welfare of the crafts and the craftsmen of India

We at Nivasa Foundation will take the first step to bridge the prominent inequality gap . We will work to enhance the lives and livelihoods of our craftsmen and artisans, give them the recognition that they deserve and positively impact the quality of their lives. We plan on undertaking welfare initiatives such as sponsoring the education of the artisans’ children and providing healthcare.
Moreover, with the Nivasa Foundation, we will continue to celebrate and promote Indian art and artists. India has a rich heritage of indigenous artists . We will work to discover these local artists and provide a platform to them to showcase their art to the world by hosting exhibitions of their works or by connecting them to potential customers.


Our initiatives to help contribute to the preservation of the environment will make conscious changes to better the environment—not just for us, but also for generations to come. For instance, plantation drives will be undertaken, where we will plant the same amount of trees that are cut for our furniture. This will not only help preserve the environment, but also will help encourage people to give back to the environment.

Additionally, we will start a program known as ‘Nivasa Recycle,’ where we will help restore our clients’ existing furniture by with the help of unique techniques and technology. When new clients purchase furniture worth a certain amount, we will offer to help extend the life of their old pieces of furniture. 
Furthermore,existing clients can come back to Nivasa anytime to restore their Nivasa furniture. This initiative will encourage people to live more sustainably, and will show how certain pieces of furniture can be revived simply through refurbishing ideas and techniques.

Under the Nivasa Foundation umbrella, we plan on launching an environmentally friendly range of furniture called ‘Nivasa Conscious. This collection will include pieces made of techniques and materials that are either environmentally friendly or reduce the negative impact on the environment. For instance, the collection will include the use of reclaimed wood, up-cycled fabrics from leftover upholstery, water based polishes and stains, cane furniture etc. All proceeds from this collection will be employed towards the charitable work done by the Nivasa Foundation.

Through these social and environmental initiatives, we at Nivasa Foundation hope to make a real positive change in the lives of people and take the first steps to help preserve our environment.

Eloquent Yet Extraordinary

An interior is the natural projection of the soul. Aum Architects has been delivering such adaptive designs reminiscing memories into the space.

Fervour interest and sincerity of understanding complexities of Architecture and Design allowed him to work on large-scale projects ranging from sprawling townships to urban scale master plans. Spearheaded by Ar. Dikshit, AUM Architects has completed over 120 projects, for eminent clientele spanning across 10 countries including UAE, Singapore, and Spain, which has led them to be titled as a leading consultant in Interior Design and Architectural services globally.

Aum Architects believes in giving design excellence, service efficiency and responsiveness with a strong commitment towards every project regardless of its scale. This ethos of integrity now reflects as core values of this firm. From designing kindergartens to townships; residences to hospitality; Manish’s hard work and vehement efforts have created award-winning designs establishing AUM Architects as a celebrated Architecture and Design Firm not only in India but Internationally. The diverse design endeavours they are pursuing have further strengthened their belief in the capabilities of Indian Architecture and Interior Design fraternity.

Their recent project, The Pinnacle house, added another feather to the cap. Rolling over 3750 sq.ft, this bedroom duplex is the perfect composition of what dreams are made of. Abiding by his trademark of a modern yet minimalist design approach, Ar. Manish Dikshit yet again worked his irrevocable charm and revolutionized the expanse. While speaking to us, the Architect shared some insights in terms of Layout, Design & Décor, Challenges and USP.

The Layout:

The four bedroom duplex comprises an entrance lobby, bar, dining area, living room, kitchen and guest bedroom with a large balcony for the living area & guest bedroom having a marvelous view of the outside. The luxurious apartment was split into one master bedroom, two bedrooms meant for the kids and one guest room. Keeping up with the latest trends, the kid’s bedroom has been dolled up in a theme which is reflective of their personas. Meticulously designed, the entire house has an eloquent yet extraordinary décor. The peaceful yet modernist décor paints a picture of order and uniformity. Another fascinating feature of this penthouse is its ‘height’, and being the focal point a pragmatic design scheme has been persevered.

Design & Décor:

Meticulously designed, The Pinnacle house, designed by Aum Architects, has an eloquent and extraordinary décor. The living room is divided into an informal lobby space and a tropical foliage has been set up along the wall of the staircase on the right. A diagonal pattern has been fabricated on the floor to dissociate this area visually. At the periphery, four fluted glass panels framed in MS frame have been placed exuding a glamorous touch to the set up. The formal living room consists of a seating area as well as the dining. The silhouettes of the tropical jungle are infused in the backdrop and the intention behind it was to add a surprise element. Pursuing the tropical theme, the master bedroom has ample of colored accents. The focal wall is painted in citron shade with diagonal bands painted in a lighter tone. The master bedroom has a rich South American inspiration owing to which ‘black marquina’ marble flooring has been used to make a stark impact. The son’s bedroom was hugely inspired by science fiction and technologies. ‘Steampunk’, a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs. For the daughter’s room, a relatively unique concept was implemented in the designs. ‘French Riviera’- a Mediterranean coastline in the southeast corner of France is where all the inspiration was derived from. The Pinnacle House stays true to its name as it unfolds a breathtaking experience that is experienced only at the top, thus portraying an architectural marvel.

Articulated to illustrate a breathtaking view, the entrance lobby has been rendered a posh outlook by using Michelangelo marble. The same marble has been innovatively implied on different surfaces such as the door and all vertical surfaces. Leaving no stone unturned to penetrate custom made mosaic in the same marble, metal inlay and use of wooden rafters are some of the elements that have been heavily used. In the master bedroom, Rich South American inspiration owing to the ‘black marquina’ marble flooring has been used to make a stark impact. A remarkable feature of the dining area is the vault ceiling. In the son’s bedroom the Hexagonal suspended sheets on the ceiling aided to be a prominent feature of this spectacular house. 


One of the biggest challenges was the delivery of certain materials in terms of logistics to bring it up over doorstep. It was a daunting task to install windows of the size we decided on. We installed 24 feet in three parts, which was 8 feet of each window which was a tough task in terms of transport. The second challenge was redesigning the house which was designed by us 6 years ago.  To redesign the whole space again from our own design earlier with the new concept was a big challenge.  Highlighting an incident, the architect shares, “The door was the biggest challenge, because the total weight of the door itself came up to 750kgs.  So it was challenging to get the hardware fittings & taking care of the wind pressure also in an open apartment. “


This penthouse has a chic factor at every nook & corner. For instance, the guest bedroom has a large balcony which gives a marvellous view outside. This is an added bonus for the patrons as the stupendous view adds an element of thrill in the house. The living room is divided into an informal lobby space and dense tropical foliage has been set up along the wall of the staircase on the right. A diagonal pattern has been fabricated on the floor to dissociate this area visually. At the periphery, four fluted glass panels framed in MS frame have been placed exuding a glamorous touch to the whole set up. The son’s bedroom was hugely inspired by science fiction and technologies. ‘Steampunk’, a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery was kept in hindsight. Also for the daughter’s room, a relatively unique concept was implemented. ‘French Riviera’- a Mediterranean coastline in the southeast corner of France is where all the inspiration was derived from. Elements of brick painted walls with rustic veneer used gave a happening & fresh vibe, perfectly reflecting the theme.

A room should feel collected not decorated marks correctly through the set-up of wall frame. It states the modern day contemporary and a glance of vintage look amidst the frames settled in this space. Artwork is always a part of any space including this one. The client really appreciated and understood art, so we used different forms of artwork in different areas of the house, depending on the theme and  concept of that particular space.

Splendid with Grace

Having an experience of almost two decades today, Sumit experiments and innovates his projects with numerous design styles fusing one into another and delivers impeccable intricate spectacles. Ar. Sumit Dhawan started a solitary practice directly after completing B.Arch in the year 2005 and founded Cityspace’82 Architects. He firmly believing a perfect balance between functionality and form adopting a too and fro methodology for the same, ensures to rationalise both, the aesthetics and functional regime of every endeavour he outlines. He also believes that a building must speak for itself with its concept, rather than having theoretical philosophy to it. His niche clientele includes DLF, Ansal, Orchid, MGF and many more.
With this empirical & multifaceted design philosophy, the architect starts every project with a comprehensive understanding of client’s requirements, kinaesthetic and research. His idea is to subsume the lifestyle and necessities of a client, getting into his shoes and designing the space like it’s his own, invoking the client’s identity through the space. The goal is to continue designing veritable projects and be known for the quality of work in the fraternity and outside. The same goes for The Centaurus, his latest project.

Located in a dense area of New Delhi, Ar. Sumit Dhawan creates this out of the ordinary coalesce of luxe and minimalism called “The Centaurus”. This residence with 520 sq. yds footprint has been very intelligently arranged in the blocked territory of Rajouri Garden, New Delhi. This resplendent home manifests a rich yet contemporary theme, exhilarating surprise elements.
The exterior facet was defined to be intricate with an international regal charm, also exhibiting an intriguing vibe. Although the interior grammar briefed by the client required it to be judiciously designed and low maintenance with a moderate yet calming spirit.

Moving towards the ground floor, on the left of the staircase lies a prepossessing lobby with a tantalizing openable timber ceiling fabricated with a seamless series of ribbed battens concealing all the services of the floor. The notion behind having all the services at a common area is to avoid jeopardizing the privacy of the bedrooms. The lobby stands sandwiched between the dining area and the study. The dining area consists of a feature wall with vertical wooden panels on different levels and a vibrant lighting element with an array of globe pendants dangling over the centre of the dining table. The central strip courtyard is planned in order to allow an adequate amount of light and ventilation inside the house throughout the day. The family lounge follows a similar design scheme as the rest of the floor with another lighting element which seems like an art piece itself. The living room on the right of the staircase is an astronomical corollary of grace. The central floating fireplace hanging from the ceiling is the prime intercept of this room. its tube-like structure manifests an illusion where it seems to be perennial from the upper floors. A semi-circular arrangement of globe lights is another eye-catching element in this room. The grey feature wall boasts off back-lit stellar like profiles creating an illusion where stones seem to be bent.
Moving onto the first floor, the lobby here serves as a showstopper with a low profile yet classy furniture setup and the same openable timber ceiling as outlined on the ground floor. The turquoise blue décor piece on the wall creates an alluring juxtaposition with the rest of the subtle primary colour-scheme. This metal art piece is made of copper with oxidizing properties due to which the piece continues to change its colour over a period of time, giving it a vital characteristic while granting a unique identity to the space for years to come. The focus lights directed on the piece accentuate its beauty enormously. Moving forward, the guest bedroom serves to be an epitome of class. This gleaming expanse acquires a neutral colour scheme with gold accents and an exclusive geometrical lighting installation dangling from the ceiling which forms to be the focal facet. The entire room is done with porcelain, which is a scratch-resistant and waterproof material, turning the room into a zero-maintenance space. The painstakingly designed kids room is another space to vouch for. The room consists of a recessed area that acts as a study for the kids. The headwall is done in fabric padding which also serves for the acoustical regime of the space. The art installation on the headwall accentuates the aesthetics of the room and at the same time works as a source of dimmable light at the night time for the kids.  An interesting artwork done by the architect himself is displayed in the room in order to add a hint of colour, highlighting the age of the users. Meandering ahead towards the immense master here which is designed for the old age parents of the client. With a white colour scheme throughout, from the lacquered panels of the TV unit to the leather headrest, the room makes for a snug habitat. Pop of colour has been added in the room through furniture and the grey veneer in the ceiling. The bedroom in the front acquires a floating bed with an interesting arrangement of track and pendant lights.

The lobby on the second floor possesses a connotation of a pellucid view of the terrace garden on both sides through the glass façade. The clients master bedroom constitutes a suspended panel from the ceiling which acts as the TV unit while partially dividing the room into the bed area and the seating area. The overall design theme is kept subtle and white with clean lines in order to fascinate the client and his wife, invoking their simplicity through the schema of the space. The idiosyncratic lighting element with an undulating array of globe lights kindles the seating area with international style seating configurations.

The basement while acquiring an entirely different look from the rest of the house demonstrates an industrial aura, forming a perfect air for partying where the young generation can rejuvenate. A prop installed here with numerous signboards with different city names inscribed bestows a sense of paragon to the seating area.  Two sunken gardens incorporated here ensure ample ventilation and natural light for the smartly engineered gymnasium and the spa.

Passive strategies were introduced through the use of cavity walls with insulation material like vermiculite, thermal break fenestrations with high-performance dgu glass, monolithic spray puff on the terrace for insulation purposes, horizontal and vertical shading devices and on-grid solar panels at terrace level. Also, the materials used in the façade were zero maintenance. Punched and perforated corten looking aluminium was incorporated to create a mess along with leather finish stone, bringing a clean contrast to the composition. Every toilet had private greens which gave a wider appearance to the toilets while allowing abundant natural light and ventilation.

This house has been built as a benchmark conducive to the experience and aesthetics of Luxury Residences. It’s a physical and an ideological retreat, an inter generational home for gathering family and friends, celebrating and creating lasting memories.

Luxury and the Hues

Every home tells a story but some homes define their persona, The Veer Cottage by Ar. Kapil Mehta is one such exception with a culmination of luxury and the hues.

With an extensive experience of more than two decades, Ar. Kapil Mehta has managed to reach the zenith in the design fraternity. Born and brought up in a household pertaining to Business of Publications that also included Architecture and Civil Publications, his house was frequently visited by authors from the industry. Having consistently been under the
influence of learned men it inspired him to pursue the profession of designing spaces. In the hindsight of travelling the world, he also kept an open mind to study the nuances and Nitty-gritties of architecture.

Architect Kapil Mehta

Adding another feather into the cap Ar. Kapil Mehta brings out an exquisite delineation in the form of a resplendent residential design – The Veer Cottage. Rolling over a span of 6800sq.ft, this five-bedroom duplex is a true amalgamation of class and ornamentation. With the notion of outlining an ethereal space, the overall schema was kept subtle while incorporating outlandish design elements to grant the space a distinctive sense of style.
Speaking on the same, Ar. Kapil Mehta mentions, “The client desired to amplify the sumptuousness of this house that rendered a boundless appeal through constructing a duplex. The client insisted on curating a space that included the wholesome of floor area while conferring onto a barrier-free domain. Since the longer side of the plot was north-facing, maximum of glass was used in the façade to assure a glare-free natural light inside the house.”

The painstakingly done façade with Brazilian and Indian stones in tints of grey, glass and stainless steel jaali work manifests as a masterful spectacle. The main gate envisaged in teak wood finished in HPL on the boundary wall encompasses very interesting details where CNC router cut steel member highlights a silhouette of a tree. A separate entry door provided for an obstruction-free access also incorporates a similar silhouette forged in CNC router cut wood complementing the facade. A homogeneous leaf-like pattern is etched on the lighting elements provided on the sides of this door. These small engaging details subsumed in the design untangle the saying, “luxury is in each detail”.

The notion was to design this place to its true potential, conceptualising every aspect keeping in mind the client’s brief. This meticulously designed abode was split into one master bedroom, two standard bedrooms and two bedrooms meant for the kids. Entering into this sumptuous expanse through the stilt level where on the right sprawls the parking, one reaches the lift and staircase area in the front to access the diligently outlined residential dwellings. A momentous entrance foyer is created adjacent to the lift in order to entertain the business guests.

Moving upstairs, one enters the dining cum lobby area encompassing an eloquent yet extraordinary spirit. The chic furniture configurations including Italian pure leather sofa from TURI and wooden dining table made of teak wood and brass elements here grant the expanse a contemporary sophistication. A fascinating feature wall replicating a TV unit has been bestowed with lit shelves that kindle the unique décor elements kept in there. A twin ceiling concept culminating an elegantly outlined hash sign boast off an eclectic design arrangement in the dining and the formal living area behind, respectively. The ceiling provides a rational segregation to both the areas. The tranquil yet glistening scheme incorporated in the living area paints a picture of order and uniformity. The seating in the living room is more on the minimal lines with an influx of subtle modernity. An urbane wall curated with soft panels serves as a focal facet of this sphere while highlighting the finesse of Mahatma Buddha. The wainscoting done here accentuates the tellurian interiors. The kitchen is pragmatically designed in the south-east direction next to the main entry in order to avoid pests and enjoy the morning sun. Articulated to illustrate a masterful spectacle, the staircase fabricated in stainless steel with stone treads was planned for better communication and ease of kids.

Meandering with the flow of the layout, one reaches the first floor to step onto this mesmerising digital flooring conferring onto an epitome of “cybertecture, the hints of which are also visible from the ground floor which serves as a showstopper. The massive full-height window with digitally printed glass is assembled in such a way that one can see a play of shadow dancing on the purple flooring imparting great impressions for the kids to savour the uniqueness of the space. The blue chesterfield armchairs laid out perfectly complements the purple flooring.

The master bedroom constitutes straight lines and glistening gold accents highlighted through the cupboard and chic ceiling design. The headrest and side table designed as one, marks for an exclusive look. Captivating the attention of the inhabitants, the overall bedroom style grants a serene spirit. The initiative to comply with the client’s needs was taken a notch further while designing the other bedrooms. Kids rooms were kept on northeast side encompassing a corner window allowing in natural light and morning sun inviting a rejuvenating vibe.

This house while staying true to its nature unfolds an experiential design for a mango man with a plush taste while adding in numerous opulent details and elements, thus portraying an architectural marvel.

Beauty is in the knot

Inspired by a jewel-like resin, the Amberlynn collection by Hands Carpet presents an amalgamation of the old familiar with the contemporary, making an unambiguous statement in design emotion. Beautifully hand knotted in fine bamboo silk, each carpet invites a distinct duality in tones as light falls upon the woven surface. A classic border defines the carpet, confining motifs that bridge the old and the new. Intricate lines take shape, removing colour in some spaces, while
adding them in layers in others.

“To be familiar and unusual – this is the Hands Amberlynn carpet collection, says Mr Ravi Patodia, Managing Director. “The design of the collection is directed by an intense amount of detail, a close gamut of pastel tones, especially the natural honey tone of amber, and the dual-tone quality of hand knotted bamboo silk. Patterns bring together contrasts, a structure that’s organised and yet organic, individual elements unified by overall form – a creative expression that is contemporary and timeless.”

Mr Ravi Patodia, Managing Director, further adds, “Most evident though, is the design symmetry that is obfuscated by the worn-out look of time. An intent to bring to the room a warmth that parses time, with a structure that is neoclassical.”
Beauty is in the knot: the hand knotted carpet
The hand knotted carpet has existed for centuries. It is woven by hand – knot by knot, millimetre by millimetre. Artisans weave with their hands, as they slip a thread, the weft, into a loop around the vertical warp. A colour change in the pattern means a new thread, a new starting point. There
is an almost artistic harmony to this skill, that seems to bind the soul of the weaver to the rug. It takes months, and in some cases years, to finish a fine hand knotted carpet.


Matisse Collection by Nya Nordiska

Luxury home furnishings brand, Maishaa, known for
producing superior quality fabrics for home décor, and also for introducing international textiles brands in India, has launched a new collection of textiles by the internationally renowned Nya Nordiska.

Crafting spaces with sophistication

When it comes to workspace, one looks for comfort, sophistication and subtleness. This extraordinary space created by Urban Zen marks its uniqueness in creating one such space from an old house to an office that could accommodate approximately four dozens of workaholics.

Urban Zen was formed in January 2011, out of a passion for design and a quest for perfection. Instilling fascination, elevating the human spirit and initiating conversation are the cornerstones of Urban Zen’s design story. A passionate proponent of independent thinking and creative change, Rohit Suraj, Urban Zen’s Founder and CEO, has, designed and executed a vast spectrum of projects of varying scales and profiles from multi-million-dollar international mega ports to masterplan developments, mid-rise buildings, niche villas and boutiques.

A boutique firm specialized in the design, construction, and finishing of residences, establishments and other niche commercial spaces, it is a one- stop turnkey solution for clients looking for structured, time-bound and high quality living environments. We understand that building an ideal home, office or hospitality establishment can be a tedious and demanding experience. At Urban Zen, we look forward to making this landmark journey an enjoyable experience for the client while bringing his/her vision to life.

Located at Film Nagar, Hyderabad, The Numi Office, designed by Urban Zen, is an efficient & proactive workspace designed with a raw, contemporary and minimalistic approach. The idea was to fabricate a hospitable working environment with varied work settings. On speaking about converting the space, the designer mentioned, “A new space is easier to design but recreating an old space and giving it a new lease on life is a challenge we relished. It meant we had to apply our minds and our creative instincts to not just redesigning but bringing to life the client’s vision despite existing constraints.”

The layout of a workspace can change the way it is perceived by the employees and by having a defined workplace, it is much easier to focus and get down to the task at hand. Rohit Suraj carefully crafted this space with several civil changes made to incorporate the open space and office like vibe that was critical to the design brief.

“The client’s brief was to refurbish an old house to create an office. Several civil changes were made to incorporate the open space and office like vibe that was critical to the design brief.” – Rohit Suraj

With the agenda of maintaining an industrial look, the designer picked grey tiles in a tumbled finish. The mesh and furniture legs were all painted in gunmetal grey. Inspired by Edoardo Tresoldi’s work, the mesh and the tiles were installed at a 45 degree angle, adding a little drama to the space and diverting the attention away from the massive workstation. Task lights were suspended from the slab and through the mesh above workstations intensifying the design scheme. Renovating a home into an office space requires a lot to innovate on several fronts. From fewer available restrooms to more people needing to be accommodated, the design was conceptualized to tackle these challenges. Due to the limited space available, the colour scheme in shades and textures of grey, enhanced with pops of colour – yellow formed the backdrop to showcase both the minimalist design and its chic undertones. The studio inside consists of the main workstation, manager cabins, a photography room, a meeting room and a designer’s room. Another important aspect that demands attention is the furniture used. All the workstations were fabricated and customised to desired sizes. The base was constructed in metal and the surfaces were made with plywood, laminate and edge-binding material.

A charming, contemporary and chic exterior ensures a positive and enduring first impression that is only cemented as one enters the vibrant space. The reception area on the ground floor is outlined with full-height glasses in the form of large openings on all available sides. This area is kept aesthetically simple with a gorgeously designed custom made reception table and a few couches for the visitors. The terrace was partially covered by a roof where a civil platform is raised and a rafter detail has been created at the end of the platform.  This helped in outlining another distinctive space which while being outdoors, felt like an addition to the indoors. A small coffee table and a few chairs at one end create an identifiable workspace. Tall plants, rafters finished in distressed bronze and a grey limestone floor paints the perfect picture of calm professionalism and effortless style. 

The main highlight of the workspace is the lighting. The use of linear lights above workstations made sure each desk was well lit. The workstation surroundings were lit using deep-recessed downlights which helped create pools of light on the floor and made the space visually appealing. From collaborative spaces to individual work zones, this office is a wholesome space which inculcates ingenuity, fun and learning. The space was kept as simple as possible while still highlighting its distinctive character. An innovative yet creative design, the Numi office achieves a hospitable and distinctive working environment for its employees.

A breif note by the Architect:-

Organizations around the world are requesting individuals to work from home with an end goal to diminish the effects of COVID-19 spread. As the infection spreads over the globe, a few nations are in lockdown and numerous others are empowering social distancing where conceivable. However, while ‘Work From Home’ sounds extraordinary in principle, with the entirety of the private sector rehearsing it, there is no space for an alternative. Nonetheless, that doesn’t mean the whole procedure must be dull and tedious.

Sitting at one place in one position can hamper productivity and hence it is recommended to find apt corners in the periphery of one’s home. This will not only relax the mind but also play as a catalyst to come up with new ideas. Tempt your brain with their scope of spaces that are stylishly satisfying for ‘wfh’ to be done.

Working from home can induce unforeseen stresses—but it also has its own pros. One can listen to music, cuddle their pet to relieve stress, and get additional sleep. And if necessary, a second monitor for one’s computer, it might be the perfect excuse to upgrade the living room.

Technically the best alternative, Working at the table could bring about maximum efficiency support. Ergonomically sound, it is the best way to get daily tasks done and meet deadlines. The space is fully equipped with a requirement for laptop or tablet, even a headset with microphone for making calls or remote presentations. This by itself makes it a perfect space for delivering efficient, focussed and centred work.

In small properties or homes where everybody is self-isolated, the bedroom may appear to be a shrewd area for some work. Simply get the laptop and grab a place to sit at this bed. The bed ought to be sufficiently large enough to provide you all the required working space. Times are hard for everyone and one might feel stiff and sour while working, switching to bedroom might give some quick and much needed relief.

Cherishing the Old-World Charm

‘Home is where your heart is’ well defines the explicitly designed Rohit and Saba Kapoor’s The Magnolia House amidst the overwhelming view of the Aravali Hills. Rohit Kapoor started his journey in the year 1993 with Nivasa, while Saba Kapoor joined the beautiful path in 2017.

An innate love for design and a vision for beautiful spaces is the corner stone for Nivasa. Set up by Rohit Kapoor, an accountant by profession, Nivasa is the epitome of the philosophy – follow your heart and the rest will fall into place. Beginning from a small studio in the by-lanes of Khirki extension in 1993, Nivasa continues to be relevant and revolutionary in their approach to design and innovation. NIVASA‘s success is a vindication of its design philosophy, corporate strategy, product quality and experience. The brand’s philosophy is to focus on the core competency of furniture design.

The Magnolia House:

 The design intent of this project by Saba & Rohit Kapoor was to keep sustainability at the center of the design. Located in the Aravali range, the two-storey home spreads over an area of 10,000 sq. ft. It is segregated into areas like a double-height foyer, a double-height terrace, living room, bar and six bedrooms. A refined material and colour palette are used throughout. The designers took full advantage of the home’s location and added huge French bay windows to bring in natural light all year round. Natural wood and earthy materials have been used for the flooring, the furniture and also for intricate detailing. All elements were hand-cut or hand-sawn and meticulously put together.  

They have tactfully used sliding doors to demarcate spaces, which could be opened up whenever required. A variation in tiling and placement of furniture pieces defines the space when partitioned, but on being opened up the spaces seamlessly flow into each other to form a harmonious unit. The double-height lobby features a fireplace and birdcage mirrors. An intricate cast-iron railing enhances the staircase that connects to the other areas of the home — a captivating reflection of this is captured in a magnificent 20-foot mirror. The living area makes a statement with a wooden bay window, a double door with brass accents and larger-than-life vignettes. Wood and brass accents create a contemporary yet earthy vibe in this area that can be transformed into a bar by night and a family lounge for the family to unwind. Providing sweeping views of the scenery below is the terrace that features a vertical volume with wooden panelling running all the way to the top.

The designers followed a contemporary theme for this project that finds the right balance between minimalism and maximalism. A minimal neutral palette is juxtaposed with dramatic accents like oversized mirrors, theatric light fixtures, sculptures and art. Muted, antique brass finishes were used on the doors, sculptures, furniture and chandeliers. Vintage switches were brought in for old-world charm. Antiques, art and artefacts sourced from travels around the worlds are seen across the house. Custom touches and artisanal craftsmanship add to the overall aesthetic of the space.
