A defined entrance foyer is created by the bar unit cabinet so that there’s a clear delineation between the entry and rest of the home. The entrance lays out the overall palette of the residence with wall accents, decorative lighting and Georgian molding of the ceiling.

The living and dining area is designed with a modern feel through patterns and shades. The living room is furnished with a gorgeous blue sofa and a striped pattern carpet which helps to break the monotony of the area. Mid-century style armchair in a light beige shade fits perfectly with the space. Touches of neutrality are provided to the living room by the sheer curtains screened along the windows. The TV unit is finished with a backdrop of grooved charcoal panel. The gallery wall stands against the beautiful dark color highlighting the photos.

Decorative mirror paneling against the dining table opens up the space, while also offering a moment of visual interest as it reflects the sculptural pendant light, the marble dining table and the beige upholstered chairs.

The Mom’s bedroom is defined by soft colors and subtle textures. The pastel blue foliated motifs wallpaper behind the bed lends a subtle sheen to the aesthetics. The pale blues and golds on the wall bring forth a sense of calm and regality to the room. Cane knobs over the soft pink-colored cabinets created a sublime yet quirky statement in the bedroom. A chandelier crowned side table adds to the elegance of the room.

For the Son’s bedroom, the white walls in combination with the cream and caffe latte tones of the furniture and flooring transpires a chicness and sleekness. The headboard almost blends into the wall giving a discreet look without being too noisy or overpowering. On the other hand, the wall lamp above the side table is a beacon of light that breaks through the walls, made of gold-plated metal and crystal glass, brightening the light white walls and cream furniture. To add some drama, a custom designed frameless Victorian style mirror has been placed on the wall.

The guest bedroom and study room was designed for the client’s grandkids who occasionally visit them. The powerful mustard yellow ceiling in the room is both cheery and unexpected, a perfect design combination. There’s something about opening your eyes to a yellow bedroom that delivers a jolt of optimistic energy. This bedroom uses multiple patterns, colors, prints and textures to contrast the vibrant ceiling. While a neutral backdrop of white walls and curtains keeps the space looking cohesive. Patterned pillows covers and deep yellow throw across the bed brings a deep contrast to the plain blue bed sheet. Colorful pops of photographs hanging above the bed transforms the space. Textured metal lamp on the side table adds to the collected vibe.

One of the most pervasive yet subtle decor details remain the lightning which was the crucial part of the design. During the day, the home is blessed with plenty of natural light. After hours, accent lightning sets the mood layered with many table lamps, wall sconces, pendant lights and chandeliers.

Overall, the apartment is designed keeping in mind its owners and their needs, with focus on decor that is minimal yet impactful, contemporary yet classic.
