Modern homes are quite unusual in terms of design because they showcase simplicity and functionality, rather than opulence and luxury. However, modern design can be luxurious and elegant. The homeowners of this two-bedroom home in Colaba preferred a minimalist and simple design. They wanted style and utility to go hand in hand. Rebel Designs, interior designers and decorators from Mumbai, have created the perfect combination of both those aspects in the home.
We begin the tour with a view of the spectacular bedroom. Minimal clutter, maximum aesthetics is the theme here. We see the use of polished wood to create the bedhead. The entire bed frame is made of the same wood. Nowadays, most beds are bought ready-made, but here, the homeowners opted to get custom made wooden furniture.
Another home décor trend that has been gaining popularity in recent times is the use of indoor plants in the design of any room. Indoor plants have become as significant as furniture in a room. Here, we see another display of minimalist design. The exposed brick wall is a mark of the industrial design style. The olive green couch blends in well with the wall and creates a contrast of colour. We can also see that the plants are a welcome addition to the room. The rug ties the whole room together into a cohesive space.
While we looked at a minimalist bedroom, we now get a glimpse of an elegant one. While it is not opulent by any means, the bedroom is just as stylish as the first one. The bedhead has a wooden frame along with suede upholstering. The bedside table is made of glass and wood, which reflects space and creates an illusion of a bigger room.
The minimalist theme continues in the modern kitchen. The white and brown tones used throughout the house are carried through here. The stunning kitchen set up uses wooden flooring quite well. The kitchen island offers a space to dine and work. We love the metal chairs that work perfectly against the kitchen island. The wall-mounted cabinets have a marble finish, giving them an extraordinary look. The combination of covered and open shelves in the kitchen makes it easy to store extra utensils while keeping the necessities within reach.
Another unique aspect of today’s modern homes is the need to add a pop of colour somewhere in the house. However, it needs to be done in such a way that it blends well with the overall décor of the home. Here, the designers have chosen to use teal to create a feature wall filled with frames. To continue the minimalist look, the frames selected for the pictures are antique and made of wood or iron. The haphazard arrangement comes together well to make the wall stand out. A similar pop of colour is an excellent idea for any home, no matter what design theme is followed.
