About the project
This Ahmedabad apartment in cool shades of grey is a modern-contemporary sanctuary. Opting for a muted, pale palette where timeless materials take center stage and finishes played a critical role in crafting this artful abode that is full of style.
“The client approached us, inspired by our past projects and a modern contemporary style of living”, remembers principal designer, Rajesh Sheth. “They relinquished almost all creative control to us.”
First impressions last forever which is why the private foyer to this apartment was designed to leave people stunned as they enter. Quirky, contemporary style furniture, with the rug and abstract painting makes for a picture perfect entrance.
Since the palette of the home is mostly limited to tones of grey, it was imperative to play with a variety of textures and materials and introduce color in a restrained manner. Italian marble with a matte leather finish is used throughout the flooring of the home. A patterned limestone cladding runs along the length of the passage with a bronze inlay for a luxe effect and the console which is in perfect harmony with the panel. The minimal ceiling with the addition of wood plays its role very well in this space.
The drawing room breaks the monotony as the stunning red leather sofa takes center stage with an organic marble and bronze coffee table and other accents bringing it all together. The open plan gives a visual illusion of a larger space and an unobstructed view of the entire space with the living room on the other end. Most of the time at home is spent in these spaces where there is a easy connection of varied functions.
There is never a dull moment at the dining table for this family with unconventional dining chairs and funky art on the wall being a great conversation starter. The kitchen boasts a clean sophisticated look with clean lines and a wooden slat ceiling.
The master bedroom is a neutral, cool paradise letting the curved form in the backdrop shine in all its gorgeousness. “The whole idea is to provide a sense of comfort, both to the eye and the physical touch.”
Elegance, style and comfort are three elements that were blended to create a careful balance for this uber luxe yet fresh home.
