House No. 12 For a Young Couple in Mumbai | Quirk Studio

House No. 12 | Quirk Studio

Nestled in the suburb of Khar in suburban Mumbai, House no. 12 is an idyllic space amidst the chaos and energy that surrounds Mumbai.

The design brief from the client was to create a home that is suited for a young couple in their early 30’s with a toddler. The aim was to create a space that had a classic, contemporary and modern aesthetic, but at the same time, exude fun, color & eclectic elements through art, accessories, accent furniture and lights.

Neutral and Monochromatic Tones

Quirk Studio-Wooden Paneled Ceiling

Keeping in mind the design brief as well as the personality, the designers decided to keep the shell of the home neutral and monochromatic in terms of floor and wall finishes, to add an element of layering to the space. Grey ceramic tiles have been used through the living, dining and kitchen, while the walls are finished with everest board paneling and in a deeper tone of beige with a metal shadow groove running all across.

A certain warmth has been added to the main living area by doing a wooden finished ceiling.

Strong First Impact with Tinted Glass Pendant Lights

Quirk Studio

A customized marble console and an antique brass pipe screen with a cluster of grey, tinted glass pendant lights, is placed in front to build a strong first impact, while creating an entrance foyer. Further transitioning into the living room, there are three seating areas, which despite being in three different corners, are in perfect harmony with the space.

To differentiate between the seating areas, an elevation has been added to the left side of the home, which boasts of a wall crafted out of 3-dimensional handmade tiles from World of Stones that is highlighted with a special focus light that creates a feature wall, creating shadows and plays with color around it. The main seating is hinged by a customized concrete finished dome coffee table and comfortable armchairs from Phantom Hands.

Modern Chandelier in the Living Area

The living room spills into the dining area, where the space has been kept minimal, giving spotlight to the live edge wood dining table from ‘and so’ and the modern chandelier by Arjun Rathi.

The den is the space which really reflects the personalities of the homeowners, and therefore, the designers have created a neutral shell using a solid grey epoxy flooring and a wooden paneled ceiling. The color and pop to the space is added by means of furniture, books, accessories and an eclectic art wall.

In order to push the envelope in terms of design, the powder room has been accentuated as an element with a dramatic, dimly lit mood that is enhanced by the vintage floral wallpaper by Nilaya and finished in antique mirror with a custom-made brass undercounter table with a wooden top and a circular brass suspended mirror.

The master bedroom is designed to be simple and neutral, with a wallpaper on the wall behind the bed, and a wall dedicated to photographs on one side. The room opens into the walk-in wardrobe, shoe closet and the master bathroom.

River-Washed Kalinga Stone in Bathroom

Quirk Studio

The ‘his and her’ sink is crafted from a river-washed Kalinga stone and the wall behind the mirrors is finished in a nature inspired patterned leaf wallpaper to add a pop of color to the entire space. The master bathroom is fully finished in Sonata Grey Marble with a modern groove detail.

Quirk Studio

The nursery, despite being created for a baby girl, has been done in very neutral colors of greys, yellows and green, through a wallpaper that exudes a gentle warmth and has a very cute aesthetic to it and a custom daybed in white PU.

Quirk Studio

The walk-in wardrobe of the nursery is finished in white back-painted glass shutters and PU shutters with pastel colored wooden knobs. The bathroom for this space is completely finished in Volakas marble with a statement bath vanity counter. The entire space is enhanced with green plants to add warmth and pops of colour throughout the expanse of the residence.
