The clever usage of parallel lines in this 2 BHK apartment designed by Komal Sachdev took me back to those self-indulgent afternoons 30 years ago. Grey, black, and oak as dark & moody colors rule the palette of this home. It’s not a overly minimalist, contemporary home. It makes brilliant use of a modest square footage to accommodate and make room for storage in two bedrooms. About the project: Location: Navi Mumbai Size: 1350…

We have another Mumbai apartment today designed by Studio Node that is traditional in design but modern in outlook and comfort. Remember the hugely popular 800 sq.ft vibrant blue apartment designed by them? The style of this apartment is something all of us will instantly relate to.

We had someone over for breakfast yesterday morning. We got talking about homes, the challenges of finding a new apartment within a modest budget in a great location, and the lack of availability. After exchanging notes about the travails of living in a home with mosaic flooring and underneath of sink home to generations of roaches, we wondered what takes precedence: location or floor plan? It is a well-known fact across the world that homes are often decades old in the heart of any city or well-developed neighborhoods. In this case, the home had both the factors, location and floor…
