    The Kitchen

    The kitchen is a burst of colour, a reflection of the couple’s affinity towards cool blues and greens. The design team took a different approach and used the colour-blocking technique, incorporating a beautiful blue hue with a black table top, transforming this functional space into a visual delight. Every piece chosen for the kitchen is not just functional but also serves as a bold statement, connecting deeply with the couple’s personality.

    The charm of this house extends to a Mumbai apartment-sized deck, which features a statement bar with a convenient pull-out table and an acrylic installation. This setup creates levels for green planters, adding a sense of interest. The table, designed for conversation, invites friends to gather, converse, and enjoy the Mumbai breeze. The deck encapsulates the essence of the entire house—an organic yet fun environment.

    The Master Bedroom

    Venturing into the master bedroom, this space unveils a private sanctuary exuding elegance. With an elaborate wallpaper on the ceiling creating a visually arresting atmosphere, the space feels zen-like in its simplicity as well as it perfectly complementing the couple’s taste.

    This abode is more than a residence; it’s a living canvas that reflects the essence of the couple’s journey together.
