BRIEF FROM CLIENT : To create easy to clean functional design with elegant and soothing interiors
STORY BOARD : The apartment belongs to Mr & Mrs Arnab Chakroborty. They are now settled in Dubai, this is their home in Bengaluru. CEE BEE Design Studio recently finished complete interior works for this project. This is a 3 bedrooms, hall, kitchen apartment and covers approx 1300 sq.ft. The main brief from the Chakraborty's was, that they wanted classic design which is very easy to maintain and doesn't involve a huge budget. As this would be just their home for may be a month or less during their yearly Bengaluru visit. Let's take a quick tour. As you will see the living room furniture has been made with teak wood they have nice curved detailing but are comparatively lightweight. The styling is not old Indian but more classic with a modern edge. The TV unit is a very modern unit with lots of room for showcasing collectibles. The wall behind the TV unit has a customized textured finish. The shoe rack/cum sitting unit and jaali divider creates a divide between the entrance and the dining area. The dining table is same teak with curve design but too keep it light glass top has been used. The spacious buffet unit is positioned opposite to the dining table. Immediately behind the dining table we have created a statement wall with a graphic tree in cherry red and brown. The adjacent wall features family photos and assorted framed art. The kitchen is one of the highlights of the project it is completely modular in a dark brown complete modern fittings. Since they don't have any real need of a guest room we converted it into a puja room it has been kept simple with mainly use of ply and duco. The bedrooms have been kept very simple as they are small in size, so the Chakraborty's did not want a busy or crowded bedroom, so you will see know major woodwork. Though we have experimented with the ceilings in both the rooms and the outcome as you see is interesting ceiling with minimal use of wood. Both the bathrooms have been completely redone with all new fittings, tile work.
