Seldom in your career you come across a client who has immense faith in you and your work. And when that happens, the result is as uncompromising as possible. This is exactly what happened in this interior project. It is a sample house of one of the architectural projects I am working on. Thus I was very clear about the language to follow; modern with a little ethnic touch. However, I have my inclination towards straighline work, thus the ethnic influence only came in while designing a few light fixtures (the hanging above dining) and the fabric palette.
A clear aim was to create such a sample house that makes the visitors want to invest in the project the moment they step in. This has been achieved by using bright colours to creat a welcoming aura. The colours play a very important role in interiors. Each room has its own story that is depicted through the colour and fabric selection. For example, the artefacts and colours in the small yellow room, instantly gives it avery children room feel, yet not being too direct about it. Such subtle elements are carefully worked out for each of the four bedrooms. While the rooms are vibrant, the living area lounge and library corner are kept subtle with vibrant cushions and paintings adding to the play. Moreover the drawing room is a mix of subtle and vibrant with the balanced use of red and grey with solid wood furniture.
I am a deisgner that has always been partial to the natural materials. This is evident from the material palette in this project. All the furniture has been made using solid wood with metal coming in play where required. This is one of those projects where I got into designing the furniture and the lights too. Every piece of furniture seen, has been designed and made particularly to fit this space and project.
Product designing is a big part of an interior designer’s life. You cant and shouldnt separate one from the other. Light designing being essential too. The red pedestal lamps in the drawing room, the modest hanging cluster in the same room, the central hanging on the dining table, are all signatures of this project. The “array house” holds true to its name; all the various elements are diligently displayed in order, such that you cannot imagine them anywhere else.
