Workshop Inc. designed this show apartment in Bangalore for Arvind Skylands. It has an unmistakable comfortable, lived-in vibe unlike the ostentatious, over-the-top interiors you see at model apartments. There is often a gaping gap between the sample apartment you see and the house you move in after interiors. The interior designers have bridged this gap by designing it as a space potential residents could visualize as being their home, rather than a glamorous, unattainable display house. About the project: Who lives here: Show apartment at Arvind Skylands Location: Yelahanka, Bangalore Size: 950 sq.ft Type: 3 BHK Apartment Completed in: 2017 Duration: 4…

This is a glimpse into a sample house designed by VPA in Gandhinagar. The design is a beautiful amalgamation of traditional + modern styles. Some corners like the pooja room with the lotus motifs and temple bells feel so personal and welcoming that it is difficult to stamp it as a show house. The sample apartment is an end-to-end marketing tool in itself to lure prospective buyers showcasing the potential of the space beyond the obvious. Do watch out for the lotus theme in the apartment from artwork to artifacts. About the project Who lives here: Sample House Location: Gandhinagar…

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. If you ask any new homeowner, what kind of a design style do you prefer, it’s unrealistic to expect a clear answer like “modern,” rustic”, or “contemporary”. Even when you do get a straight answer, the ideas in one’s head are always a combination of elements we’ve related to or aspired to some…

A traditional cottage in the hills of Ooty gets a space planning and decor refresh. Designed and decorated by its owner, Navaneetha, it is a fine balance of modern architecture and traditional aesthetically appealing decor in its new avatar. When I saw this image of solid wood chairs, the glistening Tanjore painting in the  backdrop on the dark-hued staircase landing, the ornamental staircase balustrade, and a treasure trove of brass finery on a carved wooden chest, I knew that dil would maange more. I was aching to see the rest of the home, and Navaneetha threw open the doors to her…
