Welcome to the home that is inspired by the dreams of many, but coalesced in charming fashion to create a home that leaves the soul refreshed and amazed.
Inspired by a little bit of everything, this incredibly picturesque 2,300 sqft property is the perfect abode for the joint family that is was intended for. In beautiful adherence with the client’s brief, the house was treated as three mini-homes within the expanse of a larger home. And it was left to the expertise of the incredible Sarah Sham of Essajees Atelier to seamlessly blend together these visions together in order to create a home that speaks to all its occupants equally.
The home is designed as a visual treat right from its entry foyer. With the addition of a stunning glass door, the space was meant to deliver an incredibly inviting space while simultaneously guaranteeing privacy for the homeowners. Moving into the living space, where the whole family would come together, one is welcomed by an exquisitely curated and placed collection of interior elements. Much like the home itself, the inspiration drawn from the family’s travels and colour choices is evident here, but the view of the cityscape visible on both sides is what has been kept as the main focus so as to preserve its intrinsic spirit.
Apart from the living room, it is the kitchen and the dining room where the family spends considerable time together. Therefore the wall near the kitchen was opened up to accommodate a glass door that allows in natural light to illuminate this important common space. And for the dining room, a custom table and a Chinese cabinet from Essajees adorns the space. And to finish off the look a refreshing vibe is incorporated with the addition of some plants.
For the master bedroom, meant for the elderly parents, the wainscoting from the living room is brought in as a continuation. As a calming and elegant pop of colour, mint green upholstery is chosen. Similarly, the elder son’s bedroom was given a mirror panelling on the back wall to make the space appear larger. While the younger son’s bedroom was infused with a distinct charm, where the grand headboard in grey suede and gold leaf finish acts as an alluring accent piece.
The house successfully brings together the varied opinions of the owners into an amalgamated whole where the beauty and sanctity of the individual tastes, as well as that of the collective, is respectfully maintained. Despite having to redo much of the contracted work, which complicated the job at hand, the house has a sheen of elegance and beauty that is wrapped up stunningly to serve as the loving abode of the family.
