The Mittal’s abode evolves from the fun­da­men­tal char­ac­ter of the spa­ces and re­fines the most con­cise essence of a home

A con­tem­po­rary home from Delhi with a clas­si­cal ap­peal

The Mittal’s beau­ti­ful home ra­di­ates a fu­sion of con­tem­po­rary and clas­sic ap­peal. A home, where liv­ing as­pi­ra­tions are pur­sued by ur­ban­i­ties, which craftily com­bine nat­u­ral and so­phis­ti­cated el­e­ments, and de­liv­ers an ap­pro­pri­ate treat­ment to both. It is the en­trance of the house that mys­ti­fies the mind - pat­terns, tex­tures and ma­te­ri­als at the en­trance foyer are bal­anced very care­fully to achieve the per­fect co­or­di­na­tion be­tween the light, the art and the ar­chi­tec­ture. An avant-garde prayer niche in the hall­way breaks the tra­di­tional idea of an en­closed puja room. The spa­cious liv­ing room demon­strates an ex­tra­or­di­nary taste in integrating clas­sic fur­ni­ture with muted shades, re­sult­ing in a serene and min­i­mal, yet full of per­sonal mean­ing. There is a recre­ational space at the cen­ter of the liv­ing room, fully decked with fam­ily mem­o­ra­bilia on the wall; also in at­ten­dance is an ex­quis­ite bar to host guests and ex­tended fam­ily. A unique high­light - the liv­ing spa­ces along the length and breadth of the en­tire house are kept in­ter­con­nected and flow­ing with­out any ob­struct­ing boundaries. The mod­ish din­ing flows ef­fort­lessly into the for­mal liv­ing, which ush­ers an har­mo­nious sense of a com­plete space. The large bal­cony em­braces na­ture with earthy fur­ni­ture and lush green­ery, and acts as a green lung for the fam­ily in a city starved for green zones. Tran­quil­ity of the

fam­ily lounge is re­tained de­spite of am­ple stor­age space on the walls. Rich colours grace the master be­d­room, cou­pled with wooden tex­tures and flo­ral fur­nish­ings, which were per­son­ally se­lected by the Mit­tals and are dis­played in the room as part of the over­all com­po­si­tion. Grey and black mar­ble cladding in the master bath­room adds to the lux­u­ri­ous flavour of the space. The play­ful and vi­brant tone of pinks in the daugh­ter’s be­d­room and bath­room in­fuse en­er­getic vibes. The monochro­matic and dy­namic pow­der room is ex­pres­sively charm­ing as well as im­plies an aura of mys­tery. Over­all the de­sign of the house is done as per the taste and per­son­al­ity of the fam­ily. A space that not only emits pos­i­tive en­ergy, but also com­pas­sion­ately talks about the essence of life.
