A lot of contemplation and planning must go into designing the interiors of a home to make it look unique. This home, which has been created by the interior architects of Shuffle Desizn in New Delhi is quirky with unconventional elements, and yet it is attractive. What makes it unusual is the unique ideas that are a part of the interiors. The architects have used simple ideas to create a home that looks trendy and distinctive. One way to ensure that atypical designs do not overwhelm a space is to make sure that it also has a neutral background to tone down the quirkiness, and that is precisely what the architects have done here.
Here, we see an excellent design for a living room. What is most attractive is the use of wood floors, which have been complemented by the addition of a wood panel that gives consistency to the look. The white laminate around the panel contrasts the wood very well. Using white furniture also helps in keeping the design modern and contemporary. The smart design must be appreciated, as when working with small spaces, it is best to create features according to the needs of the room. Here, a simple cubby shelf combined with drawers works perfectly well to provide storage and style in the space.
This space has been divided well to separate areas within the home, without losing the open feel. While one section features a seating area in the living room, the dining room can be seen at the far end. A wood panel along the wall and ceiling serves as a beautiful partition. To further emphasise the distinction, a simple separator in the form of cubby shelves sits against one corner, serving multiple purposes that makes the design both functional and stylish.
These shelves are an example of how the architects have chosen to think out-of-the-box. Open or floating shelves are hugely popular for displaying accessories or collectables, but when the design is unusual, like this one, the shelves often become conversation points. The white ledge creates contrast and looks great against the wood. These shelves feature in several places in and around the house, keeping the look consistent with the overall theme and design.
As we can see here, the ledges have been used to hold unusual and attractive planters to add greenery that brings vibrancy to the space. Similarly, the ledge can also be used as a bookshelf that displays one’s favourite titles.
The simple partition with a ledge, which is set against the refrigerator, is a perfect example of how unusual shapes have been used to make the home functional. The shelf can serve multiple purposes, whether it’s to place dishes taken out of the refrigerator or to display accessories.
