esidence-at-prateek-edifice-noida-studio-meraki-surfaces-reporteThe client brief for this apartment was not a very complicated or elaborate one as his main concerns were extremely simple and honest. The family looked for a house to be effortless, comforting, tranquil and noncluttered. There was no stress on any kind of over indulgence or opulence in any form and only a cheerful vibe and an up gradation in their overall quality of life was the sole expectation with the minimum amount of intervention in a restricted budget.

Spirited and Emboldening Hues

The design started with the scratch idea of using the PANTONE colour of the year 2019 " Living Coral" as the starting point for the scheme. It is described by Pantone as an "animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge"."Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity," said the company.

In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into our daily life, there is a need to seek authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy.

Soft and Curvy Furniture Brings Balance to the Look

Translating this concept into the interior envelope started with focusing on the first visible wall from the entrance to be immersed in the soothing coral theme and then designing the overall furniture around it in softer & curvaceous forms with tones of beige and red in combination for the Dining and Lounge area.

Light blue undertones would enhance the coral theme and balance the scheme in the form of strokes of water colour depicting the sky and water in the form of a huge artwork on the adjacent complementary wall.

Warmth and Coziness in the Living Area

The Living Room is finished with an amalgamation of furniture in different shades of blue along with yellow hues on walls/paintings to enhance the warmth of the space as well as to create a vibrant atmosphere in the company of orange pendant lights.

Appealing and Relaxing Bedrooms 

All the bedrooms are also in perfect harmony with wooden flooring, paired with colours like golden, blue, beige and white.
