Design Language Around Conspicuous Simplicity These Apartment Interiors Encompasses Kempt Spaces and Snug Beauty | U and I Designs

Marked by the beauty of soft, mellow tones, this home personifies pleasant. Designed for a family of 3 that includes a young teenage daughter, we riveted the design language around conspicuous simplicity. The clients briefed us spatially and one grounding rule we stuck to was – kempt spaces and snug beauty.

The home opens into the foyer that is predominantly functional and aesthetically subtle. A considerably large, tone-on-tone storage cabinet was custom made with the most gorgeous soft brown tone, juxtaposed with rattan. The rattan feature made for the perfect material to allow for ventilation through the cabinet, which would largely accommodate footwear. Unmissable are the ultra- gorgeous and sleek knobs which punctuate the whole unit perfectly. A voluminous, brass lined mirror was customised too, which served as an accent while also masking an unsightly junction box. This large mirror was balanced out with bonny botanicals on the other side, prettying up the space splendidly. A delicate addition to the space was the fluted panel that bordered the wall ever so modestly.

As one passes the foyer, the kitchen and dining spaces come to fore. A dual tone kitchen was designed for the client where we continued the pastel hued theme. Amazingly accentuating this space were the monochromatic, geometric patterned tiles. So beautifully lending a contrast without steering away from the subtlety of the home.
What also has our heart are the knobs used. Splendid black ‘chocolate bar -like’ knobs adding to the space perfectly.

This open format kitchen also had a large entryway where we conceptualised a breakfast bar with metal fabricated details at one end. Interwoven in this structure were niches where we placed customised cane trays. What better than having an additional space where you could have lovely plants, books/magazines and other accessories.
Completing this whole space were the gorgeous smoke tinted pendant lights, lighting the bar to perfection and wire-framed bar stools syncing in with the aesthetic.

The dining set is a cute combination of Windsor chairs and bench made in wood. Illuminating this whole set up is the branched out chandelier with ends having smoke tinted bulb blobs. Now this sits in front of a petite sideboard which is highlighted in the most gorgeous blue duco. We further glammed it using ribbed glass on the shutters. And it sure looks prettier than just plain glass.

You must have caught our fetish for having handles that make subtle statements too. Contrasting the beautiful blue, we gave this unit vintage brass knobs that play its part – like a cherry on the cake. This entire dreamy arrangement gets a picture perfect backdrop of a tropical wallpaper, the colours of which are yet again inspired by the theme of the home – subtle and high on elegance.

Bathed in light streaming in from the adjoining balcony, the living is a pretty sight. Giving new lease of life to their existing sofa, we reupholstered it in a pleasant green. Adding some quirk, is the reupholstered arm chair. We went the print route and it looks nothing but plush. Anchoring the space is a large nested table, perfect for those board game nights. Adding to the snug quotient is the stunning rug that brings it all together. It is beautifully patterned and compliments the whole set up flawlessly.

Behind the sofa, the wall detail delicately turns the space around. A floating shelf running across this wall is a great addition to hold decor accents and memorabilia. On the other side of the living stands a media unit simplistic in design, integrated with a taller member – an open shelved unit, detailed again with metal accents.
This arrangement was specifically requested to hold small planters and books and it amazingly beautifies the rather large TV wall.

The master is a delicate concoction of the modern farmhouse aesthetic. A simple variant of the camel back headboard takes the centre stage on the front wall. Sitting atop the custom made bed, the green upholstery of this headboard was a whimsical choice. It renders a striking personality to the otherwise neutral toned room. Large nightstands were skilfully detailed to perfection and designed to be super high on functionality. Pretty additions were the knocker inspired handles in black. Lighting up the room in all its ambient glory are the gorgeously dramatic drop lights above each nightstand. Mirror finish tint adorns the dome, beneath which a classic candle style light assumes full responsibility. The play of light and shadow is unbelievably brilliant and illuminates the layered wall panel flawlessly.

Positioned in front of the bed is a console with top notch detailing. Delicate flutes, remarkably hand carved legs and subtle curves are its striking features. Towards the closet, a life size mirror with wood carved crown adorns the wall. On the other side of this wall are built-in shelves doubling up as a bookcase. Some more green shows up in the closet area on the chest of drawers. Adding a beautiful backdrop is the stunning vaya fabric blind in contrasting maroon.

The daughter’s room is an enchanting mix of pinks and whites and grays. Every so pretty and every so tender.
Custom furniture spans out through the room in the softest wooden textures and whites. The headboard is gorgeously designed in a triad of fabrics so plush, that it easily is one of our best.

A custom polka dot wallpaper wraps the reading nook in a whim. Lacing the other walls in scallop edged paint beautifies it to another level. Gray textured paint adorns the wall opposite the bed, creating a contrast with the neighbouring white. A floor to ceiling mirror accentuated in black metal frame is another arresting feature of this room. Standing equally tall is the fabulous two-toned closet which was designed cleverly and serving utmost functionally. External drawers and open shelves are interwoven in this structure for ease of usage. Dainty black handles and knobs complete this look to perfection.

The guest room is a dreamy classic. Trimmed walls with a grandiose floral wallpaper within, dresses up the main wall. Delicate light from the exquisite brass wall lamp brightens the space ever so tenderly. Petite nightstands were designed featuring rattan.

The blush toned closet stands tall and elegant with the most gorgeous hand painted handles. A wooden moulding makes for the perfect crown to this closet. On the other side is a compact customised console with sightly metal leg details. Beside this is an unconventionally designed pooja cabinet. Sleek in demeanour yet exuding it’s own charm, this unit is at its delightful best.

Watching light streaming through its jaali shutters, casting a patterned shadow on the floor is nothing short of a supernal experience.
