REVIVAL OF GRACE
The Corner Courtyard, Kolkata
There’s a corner house on Sarat Bose Road that’s literally risen from the ashes to become one of Kolkata’s best loved boutique hotels. Originally built in the late 19th century, The Corner Courtyard was restored and is today a design haven; the colours, textures and fabrics used give it a fitting context. Colour plays a key role in giving the place its identity and is part of the design and story of the property. The restaurant has an entire wall dedicated to antique keys, another room is mirror obsessed and restored period furniture graces the rooms. The seven rooms draw on the city’s colour palette and are theme-based. From paying a trib-
ute to Satyajit Ray to recalling the yellow ambassador cars, each room tells a unique design story.
