Welcome to this statement of sophisticated glamour that breathes with the softness of English charm and the richness of Indian vibrancy within Lutyen’s Delhi.
A different story of class and style has been uniquely exemplified in each corner of this elegant home. Walk into this striking home located in the plush Lutyen’s Delhi location, where the traditional structure is preserved while the insides are glamorously revamped to create a statement by the visionary Shaunali Nanda of Sloane Luxury Interiors. The impeccable vision formulated by her was emblematic of the home’s surroundings, where the theme, she reveals, was to maintain classical and traditional aesthetics, while “upholding harmony and balance of an everlasting design.”
The 1200 yards ancestral home, was kept simplistic on the outside by utilizing French windows, but as one enters the property, the tempered infusion of what is the traditional style of Lutyen’s Delhi with an English home. Classic mouldings line the main foyer, which along with harlequin flooring are setting the stage for the visionary delight that is to follow.
The main living area is a definite highlight, with the celebration of ivory and cream hues, with soft touches of pink and mint green that lift it up. To create a warm and inviting setup, remarkable floral and fringed ivory seating is configured around a marble carved fireplace. And as one moves further ahead this space expertly transitions into a warm study, where navy blue sofas create visual dynamism. Shaunali explains that “practicality and comfort which caters to the family living remain the supreme priority” for her. And boy is that evident in the home’s overall design!
The dining room with its twin mahogany crotch crossbanded dining tables, and classic regency chairs that are embroidered with Victorian floral patterns, create the perfect space for socializing and enjoyment. Tropical, hand-embroidered cushions of this rejuvenating space, along with the rest of the elements, are all geared towards aiding this tropical vision.
The first floor of the home, accessible through a grand staircase, gives way to spaces that are meant specifically for the family’s downtime. Here is located the family breakfast and lounge area which are other notable examples of the customized brilliance of the designer’s creative vision. And much like the white Duco here that is fully panelled and stacked with curios, books and floral art inspired wallpaper, this home too is a warm statement where the comfort of the owner’s and the aesthetic magic of exquisite interiors are balanced by the skilled and gifted design hands of Shaunali.
