Setting out the steppingstones to attain an exclusive aura the lustrous metallic and clear glass entrance door welcomes the guests into this flawless sphere. A transition space has been assimilated between the entrance door and the main door in which on one side lies a fascinating wall treatment and complete mirror cladding is done on the opposite wall in order to create an illusion of volume. One enters the artsy living cum dining room through the main door where keeping the forms to be minimal, the confluence of distinctive colours serves as the focal facet of the expanse. The grape high-gloss wall with gold metal inlay on one side complements a darker hue of grape colour with black matte metal inlay adorning the TV wall. The rest of the walls are covered in a beige wallpaper including a matte sheen while balancing out the colour scheme; granting the living room a chic sense of sophistication.
The furniture pieces inculcated form to be art in themselves- the bespoke console finished in wood and Mimosa hued PU finish. Accents of the mimosa tone have also been displayed in the showstopper custom art in the dining area. The dining table acquires a base finished in veneer with intersecting metal bars in gold; the tabletop is in clear glass with a complimentary gold back-painted border. The dining chairs’ fabric in stripped pattern adds a tint of pattern amongst the solid colours used overall.
Combining a gleaming colour scheme and resonant material palette, the master bedroom is a perfect fusion of style, elegance and opulence. The material palette constitutes marble tech tiles, wooden side tables, a rich burgundy headboard that wraps around the bed and a grey wallpaper with filigree work that adds texture in the room. A prepossessing wallpaper is glued onto the ceiling from the approach door to the mirror that forms an interesting demarcation of the passage. Lighting became a critical aspect in this room as it comprised an enormous window granting natural light and the schema was kept more towards the darker side. Hence, pendants and ceiling lights were inculcated in the room in order to achieve a perception of lights washing the walls.
