A home in Mumbai that reflects the personality of its young owners is all about making a designer home with a personal touch.
The project presented a peculiar opportunity to reflect and reconceive the notion of home as a cradle of belonging, in spite of it not being lived in on the daily. The theme finds it’s grounds in an antithesis of dialogues, minimalistically warm and luxuriously understated.
Brands used include Jaipur Rugs, AKFD (Jaipur), Magnolia, WestElm, Cotton & Satins, White Teak, Hatsu and paintings from Anilla Govindappa and Richa Kashelkar.
“Many argue that a style cannot be defined. It is a component of culture, reflecting economic and social substrates in its design.
