Showcasing an Elham Mirza designed home in Mundhwa
Some houses actively reflect the personalities of those residing in it. Citadel showcases one such home in Mundhwa that speak volumes about its residents.
Ahouse is just made out of bricks and cement, but it is l ove t hat transforms it into a home. Elham Mirza, Principal Designer, The Wall Interiors, helps clients decorate and design their living space with love, so as to create a positive space that will make them smile every time they even think of the word ‘home’. In their task to create a home, take a look around at the 1,200 sq ft apartment in Mundhwa to get an idea about how they lit the magic of love and affection through comfortable interiors. “We carefully add flavours to their empty house, which would complement their lifestyle and deliver not only beautiful interiors but a bunch of happiness,” says Elham.
THE FIRST IMPRESSION
The living room is the first place to create an impression. Elham reveals, “Light up your living style with
uniformity of design and material and patterns that would give a neat look, rather than messing up the entire room with multi-colours.” And that is why, instead of going for multiple colours, they have used natural colours and materials to give the living room a classy finish. Go into nearly any home and you know the TV always takes the centre stage in the living room. The TV unit is the focal point of attraction of the living room here too. A combination of white and teak wood veneer with semi gloss polish creates a beautiful feature wall in living room. A simple but well-crafted false ceiling stares from above the spacious seating area.
The dining area is a space where one serves with love. To make it look more serene and lovely and Vastu
friendly, the team has come up with a big mirror with a silver frame. A solid wood six-seater table, with a combination of soft and comfortable classy grey fabric chairs, is a perfect place for a family to sit together and enjoy the everyday meal. The ceiling here has a similar design pattern as that of the living room, and has LED lights that glow, to make the space to look good and warm and complement perfectly with the warm and positive colour of the Kathakali painting on the wall, which unfailingly draws all eyes towards its vibrancy.
INSIDE THE MASTER BEDROOM
You need not travel or book a room in hotels to find a relaxing and comfortable bedroom. Just take a few steps to the master bedroom that is enriched with their interiors. Not just a place to rest but truly multi-purpose, it features a huge wardrobe attached to the TV unit and also a study table. “We have also come up with a window ledge, which you can use as perfect reading area with natural lighting,” Elham adds.
THE KIDS’ SANCTUARY
Innocent, smart, intelligent, cute are the words dedicated to today’s kids. This kids’ bedroom makes all these words come live through the interiors. Do you want to keep the books and toys of your kids safe? Do away with your worries; the room has units to store the things to cherish sweet memories of your kids, attached to a long and useful study table for both kids and parents. A comfortable window ledge is the place where your child can lay down and read books or play with toys.
“My lady client is a very good cook and loves cooking and spending time in the kitchen, and as a designer, I believe a kitchen is a heart of the every home. So I needed to change so many things to make this kitchen a dream kitchen for my client,” Elham explains. The first change that carried out in the existing kitchen was demolishing the existing windows attached to the balcony and convert that into a big French window. That helped them to make a bigger and brighter kitchen with easy access to the balcony for evening parties. The second important thing they did was place the kitchen in such a way that you are still connect with the dining area without having direct vision from the living room. And last but not the least, storage
units in kitchen, tall overheads stretching till ceiling height but with the right colour lamination selection made this kitchen useful and big.
At the end, Elham adds, “Finally, we are so happy that the client totally loved the concept and the mood boards we designed in each and every room. We took five months to revamp the décor of this 2BHK apartment completely. Our main concern while doing the house was to create interiors with a perfect balance of modernity and liveliness. The finest thing about this project was that our clients fell in love with it!” Home is where the heart now truly is.
