Modern minimal apartment interior design by Design Consortium
Traditional south Indian touches are quite evident in this modern Mumbai apartment by Design Consortium

Harshit & Mansi of Design Consortium designed this residential luxury apartment in Lodha Fiorenza, Mumbai for a corporate honcho and his family. All it takes to connect the dots to the family’s southern roots are the towering brass annapakshi vilakkus (lamps) on either side of the sofa in the living room. And it’s hard not to notice the signature vermilion and mustard cushions with traditional motifs in an otherwise modern design setting.

Also peppered on the walls are large artworks `~ primarily Tanjore, Worli and Madhubani paintings. The decor is a balance of beautiful pieces of art the family has collected over the years blending into modern interiors.

Harshit says,

The clients, a south Indian family, approached us to design their 4 BHK apartment; their only brief was to display their collection of ethnic Indian art within a modern setting.

The family comprises the husband, MD of a corporate, wife a homemaker, son who works in the banking sector, and his mother.

We had a free rein in design, material selection, and colour combination. Our mood board was well received by the family.

Apartment’s Layout

Interior design of the foyer in an apartment
The entrance opens up into this lobby / foyer off the apartment.

The apartment opens into a with an artwork on a veneered wall panel. The passage leads to a multipurpose room in the left and kitchen / pooja room in the right.

At the end of the passage lies the big living and dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows on east and west direction opening onto the deck overlooking the garden. Access to the three bedrooms (master, son and mother’s) are from the living room.

Living Room With a Traditional South Indian Touch

A neutral palette was chosen for the apartment in order to accentuate the various décor elements. The family also has a vast collection of Ganesha idols that are displayed on either side of the TV unit in the living room. Artworks illuminated by focus lights form the center of attraction in every room. The design aesthetic is otherwise minimalist.

A neutral sofa and center table matching the flooring occupy the living room. This neutral color palette lets the artwork shine through.

The puja area (created by shifting the kitchen entry) was made in compliance with the principles of vastu such that it doesn’t share any common walls with a toilet.

Kitchen was fully fitted by Poggenpohl with Corian Top
