It all began with a vision of a beautiful home, which I wanted to bring to life… They say that ”Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of what you love, brought together under one roof”. My family and friends who know me, understand that this passion stems from my love for designing and aesthetics… But to achieve this , was no easy task, as my ideas had to be materialized. Thanks to our interior designer Mr. Baboy, who helped us to execute our ideas to our expectations and beyond.
Our concept was to have various ethnic features of India in our home, as we Indians are a mix of so many cultures…
So, a stone mural made by Jodhpur craftsmen adorns the dining room wall. An old carved wooden door which we foraged from Fort Kochi was made into a dining table and the dining chairs to go with it were designed with Nakshi work from Jaisalmer. The living room centre tables feature the Pachikari marble inlay work which is seen on the walls of the famous Taj Mahal. The Persian chandelier is reminiscent of the Indian Mughal history. The Camellia flowers of north east India is a motif of the living room furniture.
The cane inlay work in the master bedroom comes straight from the Kettuvallams of our backwaters. The children’s room was made to be fun and perky with a purple and white theme. The guest bedroom has been designed with a teal backdrop with a pop of colour coming from the Moroccan tile work inlay detail given on the headboard and the wardrobe doors. Our home also reflects our love for travelling and hence, features curios that we have collected from our trips to Bali, Cambodia, Mysore, Coorg, Assam, Calcutta, etc.
