Interior Design Project For A Client: What A Woman Wants, What A Woman Needs!

A bedroom is a private abode where one unwinds, sleeps, studies, reads; almost half our lives are spent here and therefore needs special attention while designing its interiors.

The brief was to update a very outdated bedroom and totally reflect the personality of the client – glamorous and chic, through the renovated interior design and decoration of the bedroom.

collagea15bfdc8362e7b37The original size of the room was 204 sq ft. A wall behind the bedroom housed a metal staircase which was pulled down. The staircase was relocated allowing  for an extra 131sq ft which would make way for a reading nook, a study table and wardrobes.

As for the en-suite, a wall between the original bathroom and dressing room was removed, increasing the area by a third. The interior design of bathroom was totally remodeled with the WC and washbasin switching sides and the bathing area extended. A two tone black 1″ mosaic was used in the shower area, a textured charcoal tile lined one wall, a highlighter in a two tone green and purple mosaic was strategically placed and the balance of the walls was rendered a finish of silver on grey textured paint. A bespoke mirror hangs above the counter reflecting brilliance from the crystal wall sconces.

With emerald being named Pantone Colour of 2013, I was inspired to add jewel tones to the foundation colour scheme of muted greys, anthracite and white. These shades are deep and rich and have added drama to this boudoir, creating a sense of luxury, sophistication and comfort.

The overall change and bedroom renovation left the client totally surprised, and more than satisfied.

Interior Designing Client Project: Mellow-Yellow

The client’s brief was to renovate the first floor lobby “without doing too much” – a private chill out area for a young family sharing a home with elders. Home renovation services in Chandigarh were required by them and so they were delivered, with yellow playing a crucial role.

BEFOREDSC03196DSC03191The original lobby was dull and lifeless, lacking total character. Two-thirds of the space is still dedicated to table tennis. I opted for a soft warm yellow for the walls – a colour that is known to create happiness, optimism and confidence. A toughened glass wall complete with a door was installed at the top of the stairs providing the much needed privacy. This in turn would improve cooling and heating (HVAC) efficiency of the lobby.

In order to enhance this further, the bamboo chiks, grilles and glass were removed and replaced with toughened glass and then delicately layered with linen sheers interwoven with silver thread.
