There is something supremely attractive about an earthy and rustic home. This wonderful home in Chennai that has been completely executed by the architects of SYNERGY ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIORS. Every small aspect has been keenly looked into to create a space that belongs to one and another. There is a wonderful fluidity in the design which seems to be visible in the entire home. The soft earthy shades for the floor is where it all begins as everything else builds on it.
One of the most charming elements in this room has to be the floor tiles. The deep earthy and burning orange that has been used seems to bring it alive. The green rug is in perfect contrast yet uses a traditional print. Clean lines for the TV unit and the brown sofa cap off what is a wonderfully well put together space here.
This is a simple and a modest part of the house where a lovely seating area has been created against a window. A soft light curtain hangs to shield from mosquitoes but the aesthetics of this space remain undisturbed. The wood frame that encompasses this area adds a wonderful traditional look to this space. Soft cushions and a mattress make this space comfortable and cosy.
Adding a bench to the dining table design is a perfect way to add seating without disturbing the space. Here, the light colour wood looks magical and the ornate swing does contribute to making this space look rustic and charming.
A look from the other side provides a perfect view of the console that has been customised for this space. A combination of closed shelves along with a few open ones creates balance and interest. Here, by using metal accents in the form of an ‘x’ the cabinet is prevented from looking heavy and overwhelming in this space. A wonderful aspect of this design is the use of wood and lighting in the ceiling.
This is a very simplistic approach to design here. Including the pooja room here may have cramped up space yet by using a wonderful design that includes etched glass and tiny brass bells, the architects have created distinctive spaces within a room.
Again, by laying the emphasis on a deeper tone of wood and working the design around it, the architects have created a beautiful décor. The soft pattern on the wall and a small shelf within the walls and sheer drapes have helped to retain the rustic look that is prevalent in the house.
The only thing modern in this house are the choice of light fixtures and the wardrobes and yet they work very well in the scheme of things.
