A Eclectic Contemporary Designed Home With Indian Touch | Local Dots | Gujarat

"In the course of our conversations with the homeowners, we observed that the family spends the majority of their time at home. Hence the intention of the design pivoted on making it functional and purpose-driven. In a way, we wanted the layout to be handy and fuss-free," she says

Wood tones add warmth to the space

As one enters the premises, the foyer gives a tone of warmth as well as a touch of chic.

The cluster of brass accents on the vertically aligned wooden slices helps in creating an eclectic look.

Lights and shadows create drama

The TV partition has all the attention of the living room space and is designed so that the small pooja room accommodated behind it gets a play of light from the screen.

The hollow cuts in the panel cast a beautiful design in the Pooja room when the sunlight infiltrates it. It is designed to create some drama through light and shadow play.

The mindfully curated colour palette

The Bedrooms were kept in line with the individual users’ requirements and wishes. Fresh colours were paired with delicate fabric where the user wished for a pleasant atmosphere while wooden tones were used where the user wanted an unvarying character to their space.

The Bathrooms were kept sassy in line with the tone of the individual rooms they were in. Trendy shapes and patterns were brought into play to give each one a scintilla of modish design.

Careful selection of furniture

Here at “ Aavas”, Surfaces became canvases to explore vibrant colours, bold motifs and patterns, and pieces of furniture became essentials to pulling together a look that was classy, charming yet modern in its trimmings and form. All in all, the home celebrates a confluence of colours and lends a timeless and traditional quality to the space.

“It becomes extremely challenging to design a home where every member desires something which is quite in contrast with the other family members. We had to design each portion with utmost care to ensure the conglomerate of all was in perfect sync,” said Sushma Vanjani, founder of Local Dots, when asked about the challenges faced.
