The Cor­ner Court­yard, Kolkata

India Today - - COVER STORY - by Prachi Bhuchar Visit: www.thecorner­court­yard.com

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.
