In­te­rior de­signer Manoj Sing­hal has opted for re­fined ma­te­rial palette to de­sign a plush con­tem­po­rary apart­ment in Kolkata; In­te­rior de­signer Aditi Vora Nair has de­signed a con­tem­po­rary-sleek apart­ment with a min­i­mal and clean look; Ar. Vaib­hav and Gauri Shah has metic­u­lously de­signed an apart­ment for Manoj Gala in Mum­bai that has vivid colours and el­e­gant ap­peal.

Kolkata-based In­te­rior de­signer Manoj Sing­hal has de­signed this apart­ment spread over an area of 4,000 sq. ft., on Minto Park in Kolkata, which is a state­ment in lav­ish com­fort. the client wanted a lav­ish home cou­pled with mod­ern ameni­ties.

the res­i­dence in­cludes four bed­rooms, a liv­ing cum din­ing area, home OF­fiCE AND MuL­tI­PLE bath­rooms. the home ex­udes op­u­lence right from the en­trance. Your vis­ual treat starts right from the en­try foyer, where the main door is treated with high-gloss lac­quer and gold LEA­fiNG IN­LAy wOrKs.

Fur­ther ac­cen­tu­at­ing the space is the mother-of-pearl-in­lay work on Stat­u­ario mar­ble floor­ing mak­ing the foyer a wel­com­ing space.

the wave form art­work with back light­ing adds a feel of magic. the high-back chairs with mauve colour fab­ric and the Swarovski crys­tal chan­de­lier adds glam­our.

the mas­ter bed­room has an at­tached closet and wash room. an ad­mirable fea­ture in this area is the stitched leather clad slid­ing pan­els of wardrobe shut­ters that not only break the monotony of the ven­ner but adds an el­e­ment in­ter­est. the tele­vi­sion panel has been placed on the slid­ing shut­ter, so that wardrobe space is not wasted. the bed­room has a seat­ing area with two sofa chairs and a chaise longue. the bed­side ta­ble is clad in stat­u­ario mar­ble with bronze mir­ror fin­ished draw­ers. Mu­rano glass chan­de­lier di­vides the bed­room area from the seat­ing area.

the mother-of-pearl-in­lay work has been used ex­ten­sively on all doors to add glam­our and rich­ness. For­mal seat­ing cum din­ing area is the most spa­cious area with an el­e­gant decor. the stat­u­ario mar­ble floor­ing com­ple­ments the semi-pre­cious stone din­ing ta­ble-top. The rose gold-plated din­ing chairs adds to the lux­u­ri­ous grandeur. In the liv­ing area, the sofa set with com­bi­na­tion of leather and fab­ric with sil­ver lea­fing work com­ple­ments the white floor­ing.

LED pro­file light fix­ture in ge­o­met­ri­cal in­stal­la­tion gives an in­ter­est­ing fea­ture to the ceil­ing. Crys­tal stone art­work adorns one of the walls. Wooden ceil­ing with mother-of-pearl-in­lay work cam­ou­flages a huge pro­ject­ing beam mak­ing it com­pletely in­vis­i­ble. an onyx mar­ble chan­de­lier is the fo­cal point of the din­ning space. a light in­stal­la­tion on a pro­ject­ing beam again cam­ou­flages a pro­ject­ing beam mak­ing it to­tally in­vis­i­ble.

the wash­rooms are de­signed us­ing Mar­ble and Onyx along with var­ied hues of pink onyx, ice onyx, honey onyx. the de­signer has opted for stat­u­ario mar­ble for the en­tire home ex­cept a few ar­eas, which has wooden floor­ing used to add a touch of warmth. Ve­neer with poly­coat­ing is used in abun­dance.

Spe­cial at­ten­tion has been paid to the light­ing, where lin­ear pro­file light fix­ture and COB lights have been used in all ar­eas with dim­ming facility and au­to­ma­tion to set mood light­ing.

Mag­i­cal and mag­nif­i­cent are apt words to de­scribe this home!

the spa­cious­ness and op­u­lence of the liv­ing cum din­ing area is the high­light of the res­i­dence. 1
