With two children in the house, Mahesh and Sudha did not want their interior to be too delicate. They needed their home to be kid-friendly, but still look glamorous and presentable to guests. With a growing family, storage has always been an issue in their former home. From the start, they were thus aware of the fact that they did not want storage to be an issue in their new home.
The couple knew that HomeLane was the perfect choice for them at the very first meeting. At the Whitefield Experience showroom, their design expert, Keerti Bhat, took them through the entire process and discussed the many options available to them. At the same meeting, they got to see a mock-up of what their home would look like using the 3D visualization tool Spacecraft. It helped them imagine what their home would look like when they were done.
Keerti has made sure that the design incorporates all the needs of the family on a functional and aesthetic level.
The living room
The living room is comfortable enough for the family to enjoy weekends and chic enough to entertain the guests in. The couple chose recliners in a neutral brown color to adhere to the muted theme of the room (after all, everything is more comfortable than recliners to kick your feet and catch up on your favorite TV shows?). The white entertainment unit has lots of open and closed shelves where the family proudly displays their family photos and curious ones that were collected over the years. The design of the room is kept to a minimum in white tones from floor to ceiling. This is what makes it so bright and even makes the room look bigger than it is.
This family’s love for neutrals is also reflected in the kitchen, where they have chosen a natural wood tone for cabinets. Sudha wanted a classic look for their kitchen, something that would stand the test of time. Paired with an off-white, simple backsplash and gray countertop, this kitchen is an image of sophistication. Pay attention to the nice kitchen-themed stickers that give this kitchen a fun element.
The master bedroom
The master bedroom is a continuation of the neutral palette from the kitchen and living room. The dark wood tones contrast beautifully with the white in the rest of the room. The wall behind the bed has a beautiful brown and white print that elevates the look of the room. Keerti has used smart storage solutions that ensure plenty of storage in all bedrooms. The window space in the bedroom ensures that the couple has a place to sit, read, chat or even enjoy a morning coffee. Who can then ‘no’ to extra storage space, especially when it comes in such a beautiful way as storage above and below the window here.
For the guest room, Mahesh and Sudha wanted to keep it as simple as the rest of their home, but with a little bit of color. They chose shades of lavender for this room. Royalty a lot?
The children’s room
Given the age of the children, homeowners wanted the children’s room to be as vibrant and energetic as the two little ones. They chose an electric blue for wardrobes and study units. Also in this room, Keerthi made full use of the space by designing storage along the walls on one side (right to the top). Parents are certainly happy that they have plenty of space to store their children’s many toys, sports equipment and musical instruments in a safe place so that their floors are not cluttered with everything.
