A young couple with their children live in this expansive 4-BHK apartment in Mumbai that offers sweeping views of greenery from the balcony. Designed by Amritha Karnakar, the home celebrates the innate quirkiness of its occupants where each room conforms to a theme.
The living spaces bathe in sunlight pouring through the floor to ceiling windows. Something young, fun and casual was what the client wanted, and Amritha may have given them just that. Step in and explore.

Living + Dining
There are many standout pieces in the living + dining area. Take, for instance, the mustard yellow leather sofa or the natural wooden partition between the foyer and the living. In the dining room, the designer opted for driftwood chandeliers to give the open space a dramatic effect. This iconic pair of lights is what first drew me to this home. On the other side of the dining is the weathered red console adding a bright touch.
Amritha tempered the wall treatment with a dull gray texture to tie all these signature furniture + lighting elements together.
There are four bedrooms in the house each designed based on a particular theme. But, the design is modern with enough quirky elements of their own. So when you navigate through the house, it does not feel drastically different from one another. The colour schemes may vary but the simple + fun + quirky approach unites them all.
The son’s room is based on Batman theme with black and yellow being the predominant colours. The main wall has a concrete like texture, while the furniture is all black. Isn’t that plane-shaped shelf over the study table unconventional and fun ?
The master bedroom has a charming English feel to it, thanks to the pleasant vintage floral blue wallpaper.
The daughter’s room is modeled on the theme — “up in the air”. Onion pink walls serve as the backdrop for a white house shaped bed with an upper play area. The cupboards are in shapes of houses as well. The walls have white cloud shaped storage boxes with stars all over to give it the dreamy floating feel. The central light is in the shape of a balloon. This is the kind of fairy-tale bedroom a girl would wish for.
