See Inside This Pattern & Texture Saturated ApartmentIf you are used to the minimalist vibe of most homes featured here,  then this one is going to make your head dizzy.  But, be forewarned, that if you are a true maximalist, you are going to love it for its vibrant colors, saturated patterns, look-at-me tiles, textured walls, floral prints, and make-you-blush bathroom.

It’s a busy home designed for a dynamic couple in Mumbai with an enviable social life. The apartment has been designed by Vista Architects.

A square living room with a decadent wallpaper and sparkling stone on one wall. The full height paneling on the opposite wall reflects a lot of effect into the space.
The dining area comprises of a 6-seater dining table with a storage unit in the backdrop and a bar adjacent to the dining area.
Pattern veneer has been used for the ceiling with a good contrast of white statuario on the floor.
A parallel kitchen with grey and yellow cabinets provides the perfect balance between sophistication and eye-catching elegance. Customized hexagon tiles with shades of grey and yellow were used for the dado area.
The master bedroom is contemporary in design. A feature wall not a mainstay of most of our projects, was instead used here to bring in some texture and avoid the room from looking too flat.  The feature wall is made of MDF depicting an origami  pyramid pattern.

This is the kids room with a textured wall behind the bed. The color scheme is primarily neutral. The only decorative element here is a rustic cycle lamp on the wall.
There is so much going on this guest bedroom that any of these styles will be apt to describe it – bohemian, maximal, rustic, maximal.
Exposed brick cladding is used to create an inter-linked pattern. The room opens up to the green balcony.

This is the couple’s first apartment in the city. They live here with their 16-year-old son and two dogs: a golden retriever “Bolt” and a cute little pug “ Buzzo”. The couple’s parents visit them once a year.

Ashish says,

The apartment has a great view. Since the couple entertain a lot, they wanted space for socializing & a home that was pet friendly. They gave us detailed requirements for each room and we designed each space meticulously. The client wanted each room to have its own story and a theme that would go with the whole apartment.

In terms of layout, the main door opens to a foyer with the kitchen to the left. Beyond the foyer lies the living room, the dining and a bar.  Along the passage lie the three bedrooms: guest, kids and the master bedroom.

The designers exercised their creative freedom to the fullest. The result is an apartment that makes the most of the space and is not your typical cookie-cutter sophisticated space. Theme wise, each room is an independent entity by itself. For instance, while the living and dining are bursting at the seams with wallpaper, the kid’s room goes absolutely minimal. In contrast, the guest bedroom sports a dated look while the master bedroom is modern.

The bathrooms are different, thanks to the naughty element.  And, the balcony makes the most of that view of the city’s skyline stretching far and beyond.
