A Home Away from Home for Designer Tejal Mathur

A Home Away from Home for Tejal Mathur

Since Designer Tejal Mathur almost lives in her studio, her home is designed to give a feeling of detaching herself in an oasis of green to feel she is in her own secret garden in an otherwise concrete surrounding.

Her own home cannot be fuelled with too much information - rather it is a casual lived in cocoon with things and 'what-nots' collected over years of travel.

Whimsy pieces find a spot with not too much rigidity (they move around) and allow the comfort of barefoot living in my lounge ambiently lit by a Pottery barn pulley lamp and a Flos table light.

As she shares, her favourite spot is her dense foliaged outdoor area – an outdoor living room appointed with a vintage good Earth couch, a dining table and cushions from Paradise Road and Vietnam, let her friends sink in and put their feet up.

Stripping the ceiling to a bare faced concrete and shuttered windows add sharpness and softness to an otherwise ‘urban’ apartment.

‘A breakdown of formal structure’ her own walk in wardrobe is simply shielded with curtain drapes and her cast-iron drafting table has over time become her son’s study.

Designer Mathur's home transports her from her rather busy studio to an inner sanctum where conversations with her family around the breakfast table take precedence over everything.

The Home is a welcome place most people come unannounced.

About Designer Tejal Mathur 

Tejal Mathur's repertoire of work can be seen as an amalgamation of handcrafted finishes and the efficiency of contemporary forms. As a design squad, her team prefers to brainstorm the ‘personality’ of the space that best suits the DNA of the user. Hence their work spectrum can range from having a traditional bent to a sharper lined décor with the common thread of handmade details. They also believe in creating the variation by using a minimum palette of finishes and having a different point of view while planning rather than several superficial applications. Restraint and layering need to come through invisible details that are meant to be more felt than seen. An unselfconscious space is what they strive for.
