Location- KANDIVALI WEST,
MUMBAI- Area covered-650 SQ.FT
This apartment catering a family of four, happens to be 2BHK where the architect managed to create a space that looks large and spacious, giving it a feeling of being free spirit. Conceptually, the house has a play of lines which is why it is called “Language of lines”. Material palette is kept really neutral by adding Wood, Veneers, Italian Marble, Cane and warmth is added by colors like Shades of Browns, Mustard, Blues, Greys and keeping White as the Base color.
Entering through the main door which has an angle with vertical grooves, you are welcomed by greens which soothes your eyes. The entry console that happens to be a multi-functional unit which forms a shoe rack at the bottom, a Planter bed on the top and a dining bench on the back. This Planter becomes a cushioned backrest for Dining bench with a stone topdining table having Upholstery with Ikkat prints that adds coziness to the space. Similar Flutes will be seen in the living room in forms of P.O.P groves on walls behind the huge L-shaped grey Sofa and a metal art piece, with an Italian marble, glass and veneer T.V. unit followed by wooden stripes at the end.
Turning these straight lines into different angles it forms a beautiful pattern for the kitchen sliding door which then turns into the kid’s room forming an interesting pattern as wall paneling.
Aqua Blue and peach color add some trend and Vibrance to the room. keeping the room trendy yet simple. The wardrobes are kept plain having veneer finish with a cane backrest and side table that even forms a dresser which hides itself behind the mirror in the paneling with a supercool hanging light made from bulbs. The Peach Curtains and a little book reading corner forms a perfect intimate Space.
Keeping the geometry same and minimalist, wooden vertical and horizontal stripe on the master wardrobe forms inbuilt handles not making them prominent. With sufficient amount of storage, Master bedroom has a high veneer backrest with two brass stripes on either side with inbuilt side tables and wall lights. Trying to keep the feel sophisticated yet homely the colors used are grey on the walls and mustard into Upholstery in form of cushions, bedding and Curtains.
The space has been characterized by creating a layered environment with textures, prints, patterns and colors. A happy mishmash of opposite: ethnic and modern; neutrals and punchy vibrant colors; textured and smooth, and that is what makes it plush and playful.
