Brief: The simple furniture amalgamated with exquisite wooden panelling & lavish marble units complete the otherwise muted space to create a sense of understated luxury.
Entrance: The vintage door overlooks the attractive marble console which is complimented by the religious script frame that enhances the entrance.

Living room: The larger than life feels sinks while you enter the relatively large living room. The Sheers and silk curtains give a glimpse of the partially covered balcony.
The significantly large marble TV unit grabs your attention while you are seated on the 14feet long L shaped sofa which was designed to cater a large but informal gathering.
The Wooden panelling on the dining wall is the highlight of the room which forms the perfect backdrop to the 6 armed light sitting proud above the table.
The much muted colours in the room allow the veneer panels & marble units to stand out.

Guest Room: The bright yellow sofa cum bed draws attention amidst the grey textured wallpaper and drapes. The wooden wardrobe was introduced to create a balance between the colours.

The son’s room: breaking the understated look of the house , the room reflects the playful personality of the kid . Blue & red being the liltle one’s favourite colour, form the major part of the palette. The wallpapers were customized in order to bring in the lively feel to the room. The blue and white wallpaper on the bed wall are complimented by red superhero frames whereas the cityscape wallpaper fits in well in the study area. The veneer acts a canvas holding the bright colour palette.

Master bedroom: Inspired by the Living room’s understated look, the master bedroom’s bed panel- veneer & marble design is a delight to the eye. Some more niches were introduced in the veneer wardrobe shutter to compliment the TV unit niche. The rich customized furnishing in the bedroom helps enhance the look further.

Kitchen: The back painted glass & wooden cabinets in the kitchen give a luxurious look that extends from the living room.

The balcony: The very attractive yet calming balcony design was achieved by Introducing some artificial bamboo shoots teamed with assorted green plants, with soft ambient lighting & by adding comfortable chair with a small table. The sleeper wood ceiling, wooden floor tiles & floor lights enhance the look further.
