"Modern yet little traditional. That’s how we had to design this space to get two different country residents’ and generations' choices into the same house," tells Dhaara Vora, Principal Designer of Scribble Studio to SURFACES REPORTER (SR). Located in the plush area of Rajkot, this 'Neoplush' home is crafted using a classic black and white colour scheme. This abode is in complete contrast to the context and one might figure that by entrance itself. The designer has combined black and white wonderfully to make the home look stylish and spectacular. We talked with the designer to get more information about the project. Scroll down to read:

"Mostly, we have noticed a certain resistance towards use of Black in residences unlike here. We have some amazing and gradual transition of monochrome to colour in the whole space," quotes Vora.
Starting from the eldest son’s bedroom which is black to the younger son’s bedroom which is black & white to Kitchen which is completely white and to the parents room with living/ dining, which has some subtle colours which are used in a way that the space looks more grandeur.
It is nice to see how monochromatically balanced the place looks even with the use of such colours.
The Traditional Touch
To give out some traditional feel to parents who mainly reside here, the designer made the temple out of veneer which is right in front of the main door and would never fail to grab your attention.
And to match up the wooden tone, she added a wooden dining table on one side while a wooden table lamp on the other.
An equilibrium among all different decor elements in a room is must for getting a beautiful and well-balanced home. "It's very easy to relate that everything in the place holds a connection to something, may it be the pattern, color, finishes, upholstery, etc. And that’s what we love since it never fails to make us feel a connection throughout space as a whole. If we are to define the areas, they are different from one another yet they are synced, they are bold yet subtle, they are raw yet polished, they are pastel with the use of black & white yet they balanced," explains Vora

Innovative Play of Textures and Finishes
The designer attempted to play with some good textures and finishes. Living catches your attention with very raw and patched concrete texture on the entire dining wall as soon as you enter the space. Further by the informal living, one can see a very polished with a matte texture of PU coating on MDF contradicting the raw and rough concrete texture within the built TV wall.
The veneer used for the Temple doors is surely distinct to the whole residence. This natural polished veneer highlights, even more, the absolute white kitchen and the glossy feel it imparts due to the back-painted glass used pretty much all over the units.
"We tried to keep the gloss levels very down using solid laminates to impart colour and blend it with the area. The huge black MDF wall in one of the bedrooms does take our breath away but without compromising on making the room look smaller," says Vora. And the other room has wallpaper on the bed wall, which is matte, subtle, and does stand out since the rest of the elements are majorly white.
