The living room has contrasting furniture to its surrounding warm palette of wood and tiles.
The star attraction of this house is the freehand hand painted artwork featuring foliage; it also breaks the barrier for traditional dining areas.
The master bedroom has a chartreuse coloured headboard with the pastel geometric wallpaper and modern hanging lighting on either side of the bed.
The sons bedroom has a dark monochromatic colour with a touch of white.
The guestroom is a cosy space in combination with dark book case and calming pastel fabric couch.
Designed for a nucleated urban family, the 1,000 sq.ft fits in 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, a living, dining and kitchen. How, you wonder? This was possible thank to clever furniture layout and flow of spaces with minimal wastage.
The designer also has made a prudent choice of wall colors and wallpapers. Intelligent delimiters between paint and wallpaper truncates the space instead of running a single medium across the length of any wall. Often, when you wallpaper an entire wall that is limited in square footage, it brings to focus the small space. By just wallpapering sections, like in the bedroom, it makes the eye wander.
The architect says
this home is presents a mix of contemporary and modern design through intelligent use of the local materials. The wood, tiles, wallpaper and glass combine the tints like green, blues and orange bathe the home is extremely clean palette.
A distinguished feature of this project is the dining room that attracts ones attention by its flamboyant freehand artwork breaking the barrier for traditional dining areas.
