As we were reworking the entire structure from technical to
personal interests. We also wanted it to look bright and airy.
Vaastu compliance was also a challenge but we managed to
create a space that the owners were happy with.” Moving
on to the master bedroom, the design story here is one that
captures the design philosophy of designer herself. She
likes working with modern materials to create a warm
space. “The master bedroom has a contemporary feel, a
raw-wood ledge that acts as a shelf, the concrete-finish tiles
used for cladding the walls of the bathroom and the oak
veneer on the wardrobes all enhance the space,” she says.
The spatial reconfiguration of the entire apartment was
done to suit the needs of the owners. Also, it was crucial to
let a lot of light in, which is visible in the living room area.
“The living room has long wooden rafters which acts as a
backdrop to the sofa, providing privacy to the master
bedroom,” she adds. The entrance is decorated with a large
mirror against a tile wall in an earthy shade which creates
a stunning visual. The home also has a guest bedroom,
which has been designed with neutral tones. “This room
has a herringbone pattern wallpaper in a neutral colour,
which is used as a bed backdrop along with accents of
turquoise for the headboard and walnut veneer for the
wardrobes,” emphasises Mansi.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
A look into the space-wise kitchen and one sees a cleverly
designed kitchen to stow away things and keep it clutterfree.
“The generously proportioned kitchen is equipped
with enough storage and utility rooms to ensure that the
day-to-day functions run smoothly. Functionality was the
key while planning the kitchen to accommodate all the
gadgets and storage requirements of the homeowner,” she
says. A white quartz top was used in the kitchen, which was
paired with black and white tiles for the walls, giving it a
sleek and modern look.
LED lights were used throughout the house to keep the
energy costs low. For flooring, vitrified tile that resembles
marble was used to create a luxurious feel. “We used
vitrified tiles as it requires very little maintenance and sets
the perfect palate for the house” says Mansi. For the kids
room, a wooden tile was used keeping in mind the wearand-tear
the space was likely to see. The tiles were sourced
from different vendors to create a curated mix rather than
expecting the owners to select everything from one place.
Mansi managed to incorporate the needs of the family
while sticking to the original plan of creating a modern
space. “I think overall the home has a contemporary
approach. The design story we managed to create is one
that is with the times as well as cosy for a family to live in.
The master bedroom is my favourite part of the house as it
looks warm and rich with undertones of taupe, grey and
brown,” she signed off
