This residential project in Kharghar, Maharashtra, is a curated symphony of earth tones, all coming together to form a warm, contemporary-Indian abode for a young couple. The entire house is set in warm earth tones combined with neutrals from floor to ceiling that sets the perfect stage to incorporate pops of colour in art, styling, soft-furnishings and curios. The couple wanted a versatile home that could be dressed up or down at ease. The living room flooring was finished in Kota stone with brass inlays, and the walls are finished in soft beige lime plaster. The built-in as well as the loose furniture is another addition to the warm-earth colour palette - in natural teakwood. The project has traditional Indian elements peaking through in details - consolidating the entire design language. Set in the hills of Kharghar, the space was blessed with abundant natural light, which we tried to invite into the space as much as possible. The fabrics from Kalakaari Haath add another layer of detail and art in the soft furnishings, with its botanical and floral prints in the same tonality. The prints are offsetted by the geometric patterns in the flooring and the rugs. The whole space comes together with the art and curios - ranging from terracotta earthen ports to quirky, colourful artwork and accessories. Art has played a major role in unifying the entire space as well as providing endless possibilities for discovering details as one journeys through the house - from the hand painted wash basin to wall hangings to the patterns in the dado tiles in the bathrooms.
