The designer enlivens the interiors of this flat- “Summer Home” in Ambernath, Thane using a combination of veneers.

When Vishakha Kulkarni of VASTU AARAMBH met the family- a doctor couple and their two young daughters- of this 3BHK spacious flat, they desired that the space of this abode remains as spacious as it appeared. Keeping the clients' directive in mind, the designer enlivens the interiors of this flat- “Summer Home” in Ambernath, Thane using a combination of veneers. Take a dose of interior inspiration through this modern, spacious home at SURFACES REPORTER (SR). The designer shares more details with us. Read on:

Designed within a time frame of 6 months, the interiors of this 3-bhk apartment measuring 1250 Sq.ft, follow a contemporary theme.

Striking Veneers in the Entrance and Living Area

In this project, the firm used combinations of veneers for only the entrance and living area. “For the safety door, we used brown glass instead of a grill to give it an elegant look and to maintain privacy,” shares Vishakha.

The foyer contains a bronze mirror and wooden pattern that gives a spacious look to this compact area.The client wanted a huge TV unit and space to accommodate the Ganesha idol during the festival, so the firm designed the whole space with veneer, and to create a divider they added a charcoal sheet. The whole unit looks united with a physical divide. 

To complement the living room, they designed the ceiling with a moulding design and added a blackish-golden chandelier to give it a classy look.

Kitchen and Dining Space

For convenience, the crockery unit is designed on the common wall of the dining space and kitchen area with an easy access opening connected to the crockery unit, this makes it very convenient to serve from the kitchen without needing to walk from the kitchen to the dining space.

Stylish Bedrooms

The passage, between the living room and bedrooms, is designed with a unique illuminated floating ceiling which makes the space lighten up which usually doesn't have access to natural light.

The Master bedroom has a mustard-grey theme with a golden touch, the headboard is designed with stone-finished material with golden strips in between.

On the opposite, the whole wall is designed with a single panel that hides the door of the attached bathroom and the groove design on the panel makes it look seamless and helps to merge the bathroom door with the tv unit.

The girls’ bedroom is designed keeping in mind the young age of the occupant, the curved design with dessert glow and the colonial blue colour theme used for the room adds a playfulness to the space.
