Designed by the visionary team at Depanche Interior Architects, this home uses life sizes scales to lay its elements and material to make a full scale impression from the word go. Long corridors with a single colour scheme and walls of textured goodness make the space seem expansive and render a classically luxurious feel. So join us on a walkabout to know more!
Wood is a major design element in this home. Various polishes, finishes and textures mark the various areas and design schemes that run through them. This entryway area is an interesting one thanks to the play of wood. A soft walnut finish can be found on the bureau as well as the sleek staircase that is basically a line up of solid wood planks. The best part about the staircase is the way it turns and starts as a set of steps, rendering a warm log cabin like vibe. A tall vase adds much needed glamour as the tiles below add a chic look!
The home oozes lots of understated glamour thanks to a play of elements. There are a variety of nooks and corners that have been done up with lamps, textured walls as well as exotic vases, flowers and candles. This particular corner is out favourite. The heavy silken drapes in their silvery hue add a regal touch to the delicate crystal chandelier that comes halfway down the wall. Sleek tiles below add to the whole vibe and recessed niches make for an interesting designer take.
The kitchen is a luxurious area that can invite and soothe the most reluctant and under confident cooks! Give your life a gourmet spin with this wooden and glass kitchen. A set of drapes spells elegance and overhead lighting gives it all a warm glow. Black granite adds a sophisticated touch and glass cabinets make for easy access. The large kitchen houses a convenient kitchen island that stands in between both the walls.
The home is filled with corners and touches that break the monotony of modernity and add a hint of prettiness. The classic Indian take in this corner is especially heart warming as a brass pot with water and lamps sits on one side of the staircase. The balancing act on the part of the designers is so steady that the glass railing and the brass put sit comfortably with each, without clashing, to render an eye catching look.
The bedrooms are most definitely the highlights of this home. They have each been done with up with a perfect play of chic elements that match step with modern comfort and style. This bedroom has a solid looking bed with luxurious floor cushions strewn casually on a contrast colour rug. The glass alcove sits on a side as simple lighting casts a glow. Indoor plants and lamps complete the look

The chic quotient goes up several notches!
