It has been designed by Mitali Aharam and Supriya Lolayekar of Crafted Spaces, a design studio which undertakes architectural and interior design projects around the country.
The clients loved colour and weren’t afraid of letting the designers experiment with bold combinations, textures and new materials. They wanted a house that reflected Indian elements and beliefs but with a play of the modern and contemporary. They wanted a space that was bright and in tune with all ages of the family members.
They have named this residence “The Colour Abode”, as the name suggests, this home is a bold display and use of colour and colour sets the tone in every space. Each space has been given one bright colour either on the wall or the floor or the furniture. The whole house follows a modern rustic theme.
The design reflects the essence of modern rustic design, giving the private spaces a connection to the tranquility of nature. This home displays a bold display and use of colour and modern furniture is juxtaposed with traditional oxide floors, doors and carved elements creating the perfect mix of old and new. The ceilings are adorned with beautifully carved wooden pieces from Rajasthan and rustic chandeliers that take you back in time.
The ground floor has a lot of modern furniture which is juxtaposed with traditional oxide floors, doors and carved elements creating the perfect mix of old and new. Coloured oxide floors with brass and mother of pearl inlays, set the tone and modern furniture was added to compliment the floors with contrasting colours. The clients wanted some element to remind them of their ancestral village homes. For the flooring, cement oxide flooring was done by skilled labour from Pondicherry in beautiful colours.
The first floor spread over 3600 sq.ft. is the main highlight. The floor is done in a teal oxide colour and the walls are kept in a neutral tone with a concrete finish, to allow the kids to add on artefacts to the wall as they travel and grow older. The rustic brick wall acts as the perfect backdrop to the colourful chairs and teal oxide floor.
The second floor spread over 3300 sq.ft. has the master suite level, the design reflects the essence of modern rustic design, giving the private spaces a connection to the tranquility of nature.
As you walk in you will notice an open to sky courtyard wrapped around in an intricate wooden Jaali sourced from Rajasthan. This courtyard creates a visual divider between the seating area and the walk in wardrobe and bathroom. The four poster intricate bed was refurbished with different pieces of wood sourced from Rajasthan and the bed has a gorgeous view of the terrace it looks onto.
The flooring is a printed Indian print tile in earthy tones in the bedroom and sitting area that continues into the walk in wardrobe area. Pops of colour have been added in the jaali.
The flooring of the Bathroom is a rust coloured cement oxide floor with mother of pearl inlays matching the tones of the Tuscan wallpaper that acts as the perfect backdrop for the bathtub. The vanity is an old wooden log that has been refurbished and reused and the frame is set by two chandeliers to add some drama.
This beautiful colour abode gives a sense of peace because of its breathtaking lush green views and surroundings and at the same time make you feel energetic with its splash and pop of colours in every corner.
It is a true combination of vintage, modern and classic house!
