The entrance lobby leading to the living room. A large artwork on the passage wall camouflages what lies ahead.

A huge artwork graces the wall in the long foyer leading up to the living room. When you look closer at the pastel modern artwork, it adds further depth and dimension to the space so much so that my eyes were fixated on the piece and not looking at what lies beyond. Step into this sophisticated 1,775 sq.ft apartment off Mumbai, designed by Gaurav Kharkhar associates for the Nanesha family.

A bold veneer paneling goes behind the bed and runs along the ceiling too which is an accent wall.
Parent’s bedroom is simple in terms of design but stylish so as to serve as a guest room.
Master bedroom: the rest of the room wears a minimalist look in to sober up the bold veneer panelling going behind the bed and coming along the ceiling too which is an accent wall.

This house comprises of 3 bedrooms with attached bathrooms, a kitchen, mandir area, store room , study room, living room and dining room. The style of the home is strong yet classic and inherently sophisticated.

As one enters the house they will pass through passage where the drama is emphasized by a large beveled niche at the end of the passage continuing to the wall paneling which occupies three different areas i.e. mandir room, kid’s study room and store room.

Art in this house is modern and life size.

Living + Dining

The sofa back is kept bare minimal to highlight the artwork.  Dining table is backed by a crockery unit with stone tile cladding giving it an earthy feel to the interiors.

Bedroom:

The dining area paneling accommodates the bedroom door which leads to the master bedroom.  The grain storage and parent’s bedroom door are flushed with the TV wall.  In the kids room, the architect says, ”

We tried to achieve a more spacious look by choosing a step up bed, which paves way for the kids to move freely without any hindrance.

We have played more with concrete texture, veneer, Italian marble, rustic tiles neutral colour hues to make it look more elegant and sophisticated.
