Earthy Tones, Monochrome Palette, Sober Colour Theme and Subtle Textures Define This Budgeted Family Home in Noida | J+AM Storey

A family of four commissioned Amit Bhatia and Jaanshi Bhatia of J+AM Storey to remodel their Noida home on a limited budget. To design this compact home covering a carpet area of 1200 sq ft, the firm employs a minimalist style with simple and uncluttered interiors. And that is from where it gets its apt name- “Saral”- which means easy & effortless in Hindi. This abode boasts a perfect blend of earthy tones, a monochrome palette, subtle textures & sober colour theme, which adds to its cosy interiors. The designers shared more details about the project with SURFACES REPORTER (SR). Read on:

The planning includes a living room, dining, kitchen, puja, 2 small bedrooms with a common toilet and a master bedroom with an attached toilet. The firm focussed more on simple forms, details and calm colours to add to the functionality of the house. Minimal mood board and pastel upholstery balance with the overall muted shades of grey.


Wonderful Additions in Limited Space 

As the client is an avid reader, he wanted a library right at the entrance of the house. So, this was achieved by creating a nice bookshelf against the wall where the client can keep all his books in a well-organized and beautiful manner.


The balcony is Converted into Pooja Area

Since there was no possible space to define the Pooja area in the limited space constraints, the firm incorporated the balcony space inside the living room and converted it into a puja area. To segregate the privacy of the two zones, they added a fluted glass partition.

This not only allowed required privacy but also floods abundant natural light inside the living area.

Proper Daylighting and Connection With Nature

The living room welcomes abundant natural light and creates a soothing environment by adding greens indoors, thereby setting an experience wherein one feels connected to nature.

The rays sweep at every corner, inflowing the light & freshness in the entire house.

Touch of Indian Traditional Arts

Since the client originally belonged to Bihar and had an Inclination towards Indian tradition, they favoured Madhubani artworks in the house, to stay connected with their roots.

Patterned tiles in the corridor break the continuity of the overall grey flooring and also add aesthetics to that area.

Vibrant Wallpapers in Kids’ Bedroom

The interior concept of their kids’ bedroom was typically blue & pink for their son & daughter respectively.

Simple and Minimalist Master Bedroom

While the master bedroom conveys self-expression of simplicity and minimalism. The washroom is designed in sync with the overall theme using self-textured white and grey tiles. The furniture is customized in teak & cane which adds warmth to the house.


Minimalism is binding the space while making it breathable.


The overall intent of Saral is to add serenity and soul to the spaces at every corner of this tiny house.
