-Residential-project-azure-interiorsLocated in Nakati village in Chhattisgarh’s hinterland, the home stays true to its native habitat with the use of subdued palettes, exotic natural stones and wood, and natural shapes. Organic forms and shapes, and earthy tones further add a delightful naturalness.

Serene and Green Setting

Set amid a 30,000 sqft lush, carefully manicured and landscaped lawn, the home presents a picturesque view. 

Astonishing design features, like an over-the-top quirky wallpaper, waterfall surface dining table, and specially designed accessories and artifacts grab attention, even as muted organic elements gently direct your eyes to the natural setting. 

-Residential-project-azure-interiors“The clients wanted a quiet retreat, and the designers rooted the aesthetics in nature while maintaining a sophisticated edge to create a relaxing atmosphere,” shares Ruchi.

Vibrant and Elegant Interiors

The interior approach is focused on keeping the common areas connected to offer flexible spatial configurations so that the rooms can operate independently or together to suit the occasion.

-Residential-project-azure-interiorsAn exotic, colourful floral wallpaper featuring a quirky, suited monkey by Raseel Gujral is the eye-catching element of the living room done up in duck egg blue walls. Victorian-style moldings add elegant details. The furniture is mostly made of leather exuding a cool and sophisticated vibe.

-Residential-project-azure-interiorsThe centre table is made of a wooden log, and the ceiling has been kept a little muted, but with a highlight of black with surface lights, to give the space a party vibe. The living room is connected to the lawn, so it is designed to host bigger gatherings.

Stunning Living Area With Wooden Floors

The family wanted to use the room as a home theatre as well. So the flooring is covered in acoustic wood, and the walls also have wooden paneling.

-Residential-project-azure-interiorsThe den or the informal living room is steeped in shades of grey exhibiting a chic neutral vibe. A towering shadow box shelving unit forms a gorgeous background. An array of terracotta artifacts in a multitude of shapes, specially designed and made by a local artisan, add a charming look. The flooring in rough brown Kota stone accented with a highlighter with a patina finish, and interlaid with wooden tiles further sets a muted backdrop. The sloped ceiling has been done up using two materials – wood as a highlighter element, and the rest rendered as a textured surface. The neutral atmosphere bristles with a raw edge. As a result, the eye is guided towards the verdant views out of the large windows. They beautifully frame the vibrant outdoors.

Black Granite For Swimming Pool

Mounted above the ground level, the swimming pool is framed by river-washed black granite. The dining room makes a dramatic statement with a table that features a sculptural waterfall countertop.

-Residential-project-azure-interiorsThe stone top cascades toward the floor at thirty degrees looking like a riverbed. On the walls, the same texture and finish continue.

Green Indian Stone in the Bar

The green Indian stone in the bar brings a charming jade hue. All the shelves are made out of this marble and so is the counter. And distressed mirrors and clear mirrors act as bling elements. 

-Residential-project-azure-interiorsThe grey theme continues in the kitchen, though the black Nolte kitchen with silver edging offers an elegant contrast with its sophisticated modern look.

Neutral Shades Accentuate The Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is done up in muted shades of grey and black with a hint of gold. The gabled ceiling imparts depth to the interiors. The bed and the side table are made of leather. A beautiful locally handcrafted macramé hangs on the bed back wall.

The flooring is wooden, and a charming wooden plank with raw edges has been placed as a sliding door between the bedroom and the dressing area. The bathroom is completely clad in handmade black tiles evoking a clean and elegant look.


A visual contrast between finished and unfinished walls by juxtaposing wooden panelling painted in bottle green and exposed bricks is the highlight of the guest bedroom. The herringbone flooring beautifully complements the setting. The bed is clad in light beige leather and the metal side tables were procured from the local market.

Refreshing Green in the Powder Room

The powder room is designed to exude a serene and refreshing vibe with a green palette, since it’s the only space in the home from where a view of the greenery outside is not available. A tropical motif wallpaper from the Nilaya collection of Good Earth and a glossy green herringbone dado inspire a rainforest setting.

-Residential-project-azure-interiorsThe washbasin and the counter/ vanity are in natural wood in keeping with the overall materiality of the farmhouse.

-Residential-project-azure-interiorsSupreme luxury embraces natural textures and materials to touch the senses gently in this modern farmhouse enabling complete relaxation and rejuvenation of the body and the mind.
