A home is a form of self-expression for its inhabitants. Located in Surat, this quirky pad reflects the client’s personality and profession as a fashion stylist. The fashion industry is all about textures and colours, so is this apartment. The designer manages to manifest a space using a broad material palette of stone, metal, velvet and wood to shape this vibrant space.
The living space is a blend of eye-catching canary yellow and forest green used in different elements. The space has an open plan, with the living and dining space amalgamating as one. The velvet upholstered sofa is adorned with cushions in different textures and prints to contrast with the green. On the other side is a pair of puffy couches and the beautiful swing upholstered in yellow velvet. A monochromatic grey binds the yellow and green together, adding hints of subtlety and elegance. The wall in grey behind the sofa hosts a beautiful clock that becomes a design element on a plain wall.

The opposite of this is a long wall that is cleverly broken down by using different colours, textures, and wall décor. By the sofa, the wall is deep green with beautiful yellow abstract art hand-painted on it. Towards the kitchen, this wall has the stunning yellow washbasin by the grey vanity. This part of the wall has a triangular mirror installation that adds dynamism to the coloured wall. After that, the wall has a grey panelling with vertical grooves.
A classy breakfast table envelopes the column to divide the living and the kitchen visually. A fabricated cuboidal frame is suspended from the top of this column to house green plants, adding life to the space. The kitchen is a breath-taking space with yellow mosaic dado tiles and yellow cabinets. The space adheres to the overall theme with the green granite, although the proportions of the colours are reversed here.
The bedroom is a piece of art. The colour palette here is a blue used in combinations with a leopard print and hints of red. The bed, along with the bed-back, is upholstered in red. Black and white are used as neutralising tones to set off the pop colours. The main highlight of the room is the wall painting of an abstract face and leopard patterns that starts from behind the bed and continues to the opposite wall with a television.
Attached to the room is a walk-in wardrobe, right out of one’s dream. Both sides of the wall are lined with shelves to store clothes and accessories, while the other end is a vanity for make-up and skincare opposite to a floor-length mirror.
This young, vibrant, colourful and bold bachelorette pad is the client’s dream and personality, manifested to reality by materials, textures, colours, and design.
