  • Victorian Home Interior In The Country’s Diamond Capital | Aparna Kaushik

    Conceptualising and bringing to life the Victorian home interior of this abode in the country’s diamond capital was an exciting prospect. Spread across approximately 6000 sq. feet, this penthouse is nestled within a posh colony in Surat, Gujarat. The client envisioned a sumptuous home that seamlessly blends English classic architecture with a steady tempering of traditional Indian elements in a practical and modern setting. The result was a home like a series of large canvasses exuding Victorian charm and Indian warmth. It also has a confluence of eras and cultures.
