This Vaastu-Compliant Home in Rajkot is Defined By Minimal Design, Local Art and Sustainability | AUURA Interior Design Studio

Showcasing exemplary design grammar, the team at AUURA Interior Design Studio has come forth with a G+2 residence- 'The Vintage Chambre'. As the design brief demanded a minimal design style with a contrasting colour scheme, the firm designed opened up floor spaces and incorporated furniture and decor elements that created less clutter. The inclusion of Vaastu was the main design aspect to be considered keeping in mind the Indian traditional systems of architecture with a religious outlook toward life. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) has received detailed design info about the project from Shaily Ganatra, the founder and principal designer of AUURA Interior Design Studio.

Capacious Living and Dining Area                                                            

The house opens up to a spacious living and dining room that is segregated with an interesting wooden partition. The double-height ceiling further makes the room look spacious. The living room is adorned in tones of blue that are well complemented with pristine white walls and ceilings. 


The dining and the kitchen are attached with soft furnishings in shades of blue along with a dominating colour of white used throughout. The contrasting colours used against white makes the entire room pop with bright hues. 


There is an organised set up of furniture along with a swing that makes the room come together. The furniture was customised keeping in mind the user's personality and was curated on-site. 


A Hint of Striking Bold Colours in Guest Bedroom

As one goes further from the living room, one steps into the guest bedroom on the ground floor that is adorned in dark shades highlighting all the in-built elements against the white background. 


Oversized Mirror in Master Bedroom

There are two bedrooms on the upper floor, the master bedroom and the children’s bedroom which are designed to be extremely spacious. The master bedroom has a unique tv unit designed as well as the bed headboard with a distinct patterned approach.


The grey and white theme is subtle and the huge mirror is the focal point of the bedroom. 

Textural Interplay in Children's Bedroom

The children’s bedroom has a teal colour scheme with an interesting design given to the study table. There’s a theatre room on the top floor that lets the family come together and have a well-rested time together.


Marble is used for flooring and coloured tiles are used on the wall to give it a bright tinge. Other than that, the wooden touch is given through veneers and there is a textural interplay offered through the use of chips and boards.
