Citadel - - CONTENTS - ELHAM MIRZA’s stun­ning project.

Some homes seem too pic­ture per­fect to be true. They just make you want to stop every­thing you do and look at it with ad­mi­ra­tion. In­te­rior de­signer Nare Berkus has rightly said, ‘Your home should tell the story of who are, and be a col­lec­tion of what you love.’ ‘Liv­ing in Na­ture’ falls into this cat­e­gory. De­signed by in­te­rior de­signer Elham Mirza, this 1500 sq ft 2 BHK home in the heart of Kothrud has your at­ten­tion the mo­ment you step past its thresh­old. What de­signer Elham

had in mind was of cre­at­ing a con­tem­po­rary In­dian home for a fam­ily that con­sisted of a cou­ple and their two beau­ti­ful dogs. The in­spi­ra­tion comes from that thin bal­ance that needs to be main­tained be­tween In­dian liv­ing and that touch of na­ture’s warmth.

EN­TRY POINT

The mo­ment you step into the res­i­dence from the large old sag­wan door and walk on the grey Sha­habad stone floor­ing, the place ra­di­ates pos­i­tiv­ity. Along with the Man­ga­lore tiles roof­ing and keep­ing the thought of na­ture in mind, Elham says, “We tried to cre­ate a grand en­trance area to wel­come peace and pos­i­tive vibes into the home.”

EN­TER­ING THE LIV­ING ROOM

Any­one can fig­ure out that the liv­ing room is the most im­por­tant room for the fam­ily to con­verge on any oc­ca­sion. Same is the case in ‘Liv­ing in Na­ture’. The fam­ily en­joys spend­ing their time sit­ting here with the back­drop of the gor­geous land­scape view that is pro­vided by the fully opened bal­cony doors. Elham re­veals, “We cre­ated the liv­ing room in such a way that one can open the doors in be­tween and join the bal­cony and liv­ing to­gether to cre­ate a one big liv­ing space. The colour pal­ette for this place is a sim­ple, nat­u­ral com­bi­na­tion of wood and a stone fea­ture wall, warm white walls, teamed up with soft and clear sofa and cur­tain fab­rics with the ad­di­tion of nat­u­ral, blue and green coloured textured cush­ions.”

SPACE SO­LU­TIONS

The bed­room is quite the per­sonal par­adise for the owner cou­ple. There is the large wooden win­dow that just con­nects them to the gar­den. The com­bi­na­tion of a large square pat­tern bed back head­board al­lows the mas­ter bed­room look big­ger and taller. The kitchen and din­ing is Elham’s favourite part in the en­tire house. She adds, “The wal­nut wooden kitchen cab­i­nets, beige stone counter top and wooden rafter ceil­ing to­gether make this place beau­ti­fully larger in ap­pear­ance.” The de­signer has made things eas­ier for the cou­ple with a di­rect con­nec­tion be­tween the din­ing area and kitchen. “The din­ing area is a wooden gazebo with Man­ga­lore style roof­ing, which con­nects you to the kitchen and gar­den both.” The home is where the heart is... at least here one can state that with much pride.
