This narrow passage of  a foyer forms the  perfect and most  welcoming entrance to  the apartment with its  delicate and smart  flooring inlay pattern in  black marble giving the  otherwise beige  flooring an interesting  break. The ceiling and  facing wall have been  paneled with wood for  the warmth needed on  entry. The gorgeous  marble and metal  console is from  Meridiani. The foyer  turns and opens into a  guest room and Pooja  room before opening  into the large living  room.


The living room is a  beautiful  amalgamation of  contemporary  European furniture  and Indian make of  artworks,artefacts and  carpets. The blue color  of the Baxter sideboard  and red color of the  Porada dining table  blending in seamlessly  with the otherwise  neutral palette of the  Bentley sofa and grey  Minotti single seaters  in the living room.

This space is divided  into two seating  corners as it is used to  entertain guests as well  as for the family to  spend time together.

The other corner of the living room is given a more easy, free and glam vibe by  introducing soft curves and circular shapes to the otherwise straight lines. The blue of the  Baxter sideboard, the brass filled inside the hand created cracks of the Boca do lobo coffee  table, the suede and leather upholstered Fendi chair, and the neat pleating and detailed leg  representing a thorny bush of the Koket sofa along with the antiques and artefacts placed  around most definitely make it an interesting and eclectic corner.

The dining room which is an adjacent extension to the living room houses a gorgeous  round Porada red top dining table in the middle of wooden paneled and grey toned  walls. The Moooi chandelier doing some pattern play forming a reflection of concentric  circles on the ceiling and this beautiful hand painted Rugiano sideboard adding texture.  The wall being adorned by bespoke installations of metal and fiber by our fabricators.

The warm and cozy master bedroom has the walls behind this Arkitepo bed panelled with  veneer placed in different directions to add an interesting pattern running across. The wooden  finish adds warmth and coziness to this bedroom which has a full sized window allowing for  the room to be bathed in a good amount of natural light with a modern Fendi chair at a corner  for that early morning newspaper time. The sliding shutters to the walk in area are paneled  with mirror to give the bedroom an illusion of space and expanse.

The guest room has been kept smart and  chic with a wooden frame Shake bed and  leather backing. Wall mounted two armed  light, study table in a corner extension,  mirror finished wardrobe, bedding from  address home and accessories from Souk  complete the look of this room.

A bespoke blue custom made bed placed against an ivory paneled wall marks the beauty of  this room, while the rest of the walls are clad with acrylic panels to give it a seamless,  camouflaged and well finished look. The tropical printed chair from Desiree adds a fresh look,  and along with the printed cushions from Address home gives a break to the otherwise solid  color scheme.

The brief for this room was to have a pink palette. Keeping that in mind we tried to incorporate  that in different ways from a color blocked Fendi bed to an ombré finish wallpaper starting from  a darker pink to a lighter pink gradient. Finished the dressing corner of this room with a pink  base printed wallpaper from Cole & Son. Adorning the room and breaking the monotony of the  pink are the gorgeous book shelf from De castelli and the the corner butterfly chandelier from  Ingo Maurer.

The dining opens into a modern and well  finished kitchen from Poggenpohl. The door  connecting the two has a round glass cut out to  allow light to come in and to add some  character to the otherwise solid door.
