Designing A Modern Home With An Indian Touch | LOCAL DOTS

The client approached us with the desire of designing a modern home with an Indian touch. When it comes to decor, a traditional style is comfortable and often predictable. Some may say conventional is outdated, but there’s a reason the style is still popular—for its warmth, comfort and familiarity. It is challenging to accommodate the shades of wood, necessary to give an Indian touch while designing a contemporary household.

In the course of our conversations with the homeowners, we observed that the family spends the majority of their time at home. Hence the intention of the design pivoted on making it functional and purpose driven. In a way, we wanted the layout to be handy and fuss free.

Designing A Modern Home With An Indian Touch | Local Dots

The home started its journey from a bare shell structure and hence we had the liberty of carving out interesting and flowing spaces to achieve the desired fluidity in design. As we enter the premises, the foyer gives a tone of warmth as well as a touch of chic. The cluster of brass accents on the vertically aligned wooden slices helps in creating an eclectic look.

The TV partition has all the attention of the living room space and it is designed in such a way that the small pooja room accommodated behind it gets play of light from the screen. The hollow cuts in the panel cast a beautiful design inside the pooja room when the sunlight infiltrates through it. It is designed to create some drama through light and shadow play.

The Bedrooms were kept in line with the individual users requirements and wishes. Fresh colours were paired with delicate fabric where the user wished a jovial atmosphere while wooden tones were used where the user wanted an unvarying character to their space.

The Bathrooms were kept sassy in line with the tone of the individual rooms they were in. Trendy shapes and patterns were brought into play to give each one a scintilla of modish design.

The clients were fond of ceramic ware a lot so we decided to put that somewhere around in the form of art. Firstly, discussions were happening to bring that up in the dining area but we didn’t have any wall of display which could highlight the artwork.

Thus, the final decision was to arrange some blue-ochre uneven shaped plates on the bed back wall in their bedroom itself which we got them made from an artist in Goa, adding glamour and aesthetics to the space.

On the second floor, the suite room was designed in such a way that the room could be altered to an entertainment room anytime whenever they had guests visiting

Here at “Aavas”, Surfaces became canvases to explore vibrant colours, bold motifs and patterns, pieces of furniture became essentials to pulling together a look that was classy, charming yet modern in its trimmings and form. All in all, the home celebrates a confluence of colours and lends a timeless and traditional quality to the space.

“It becomes extremely challenging to design a home where every member desires something which is quite in contrast with the other members of the family. We had to design each portion with utmost care to make sure the conglomerate of all was in perfect sync. But I really like just how easy and malleable my thoughts were with the clients” said Sushma Vanjani, founder of Local Dots, when asked about the challenges faced.
