d1 (1)Founders of Cottons & Satins Mala Sapra and businessman Vinay Sapra’s home defines meticulously a unique collaboration of refined use of traditional art with measured contemporary elements. A home built in 3,600 square feet area boasts of four plush bedrooms, a spacious living room, a luxuriating boy’s lounge and a magnanimous foyer. “The idea behind designing the house in the manner was to have two areas bifurcated in a way that they define the space we are into, so we have a formal area and a family area”,
states Mala Sapra.
For her, an unclouded naturally lit house holds a lot of importance as it mirrors the healthy lifestyle of the home owner. A breath of freshness fills the house every now and then through huge open windows. The living room is a graceful celebration of culture, conventional influences, modern art and exquisite finishes. The subtle use of grey, blue and pink on the walls lends the area a spacious and soothing appeal. Whereas the ornamentation of the room is done in rich patterns, metallic decor and baroque Persian carpets on Italian marble flooring. Also Mala’s years spent in the culturally rich state of Rajasthan can be seen through the traditional Rajasthani jharoka pattern spread across the living area walls. An eclectic mouth blown glass chandelier right above the dining table brightens the area even more. Vintage yet modern the setting portrays a creative sense of style and an elite aura.
A comfortable sofa, wooden flooring, table lamps, leather wallpapers with rot iron grid on the wall collectively give a rustic feel to the savouring boy’s Lounge. “Since it has been made to suit the needs and preferences of my son and his friends, we have preferred to give it a very indolent ambiance”, says Mala Sapra. The comfort as well as the masculine feel of the room has been showcased in a very balanced manner. The sublime feel is complimented with the use of colours ranging from dull gold to rust black. The decor of the room is similar to that of the living room.
The common lounge is a treat to the eyes of indigo lovers. Chinoiserie style wall cladded in ginger jar pattern looks even more unique with a similar pattern printed Chester feel sofa, teamed with rot iron and marble side tables, reflecting Mughal decor influences. Since it is a common lounge one wall of the room is dedicated to family portraits adding an aesthetic appeal to the place. Accessorising the lounge with indigo and off-white décor items elevates the idiosyncratic charm while continuing to keep it subtle.
A modern European look inspired guest room is infused with a very subtle colour scheme instead of loud. The use of colours like, brown, beige, tan with a hint of yellow makes the room look sophisticated and refined. The use of yellow has been done purposely to give a strikingly attractive feel to the comforting appeal of the room. Muted tones with a burst of pops, lamps, vases and frames complete the entire look.
