• Residence Adorned with Simplicity and Creative Modernism in Bangalore : Brass and Hues | House Of Ruya

    (3 Votes)

    In the fast moving world today, home is the place that keeps us tied to our roots. It is our haven to unwind, to enjoy and to feel like it’s our solace with a hint of modernism.

    Our latest project was in Vaishnavi Terrace, a 2500 square feet apartment, in an up and coming area in Bangalore. Being on the seventh floor, with a breathtaking view, our home owners approached us with a vision of what their home should be. An amalgamation of a modern home and the charms of tradition.

    The entrance to the house is a long passageway, which opens up into the spacious hall and dining hall. We understood that this part of the house sets the mood for the rest of it. It had to be engaging and stimulating, and act as a bridge to the grandeur of the house.

    We incorporated brass in our accent pieces, to remind us of our traditional thread with an element of modernism. Custom made brass lotus motifs, along with the brass strips created a sense of grandeur. This gave the entrance an elegance of its own. The walls were done with grey concrete textured paint which acted as the underscore for the brass elements and was completed by the teak wood fluted paneling on the sides. 

    Living Room

    The living room was designed along the lines of minimalistic interiors. The palette was muted but with small details that stood out. A textural quality was added by creating grooves and adding wooden paneling behind the tv unit. The luxurious living room strikes a balance with the traditional facet with the custom made teak swing and the brass strips on the walls refining modernism.

    With shades of black from the shelving, brown from the wood and the fluted glass mimicking the grooves, the dining room swayed towards the modern side.

    The apartment being surrounded by a concrete jungle, elements of green were introduced in the apartment to simulate the feel of nature.


    The kitchen has a continuation of the green detail on the shutters blended with the soft white patterned over head cabinets. The backsplash was carefully curated in a herringbone tile pattern in different colors, green, cream, blush and white borrowed from the rest of the home, to give a lively and colorful vibe.


    The Pooja space was kept simple and quaint with the brass ‘OM’ adding to the otherwise unpretentious feature wall.

    Guest Bedroom

    The walls were painted with a deep green in the guest bedroom, and this was complemented by birch wood ply wardrobes with a natural finish to it. The day bed by the windows is a place to unwind and rest.

    Master Bedroom

    The master bedroom embodies grandeur and elegance. While the blush toned walls act as a blank canvas, the paneling over it and the Black and Gold bedside lights acted as a statement. The herringbone wooden flooring and wardrobes with brass handles from “studio-made” add warmth and coziness to the space.

    Kids Room

    Our young client wanted to create a space where he would feel a sense of his own and that went along the lines of “bright”, “bold” and “colorful”.  With Orange being his favorite color, we played around it with blue and grey to offset it and made a cozy and fun den for him. A striped daybed in the middle of his cupboard is perfect for an afternoon of reading for him.

    With the use of textures, accents of brass and wood, warm tones dominating with punches of colors, the quintessential home full of modern and traditional juxtapositions was created.
