The space is a modern affair that combines different functional spaces tastefully
Our homes are the only piece of real estate where we can take charge and personalise the interiors through furniture, wall paint, decor, and art. A young couple in Mumbai, along with their two little girls, did just that when they decided to transform their 3BHK apartment in Mahalaxmi — the one famous for its scenic views and expansive racecourse — into their personal refuge. The first step involved roping in an interior design firm to helm a clutter-free space for their girls to enjoy. The result: A home that combines different functional spaces tastefully and uses patterns, colours and textures in a cohesive fashion. The serpentine passage that leads to the living room provides the perfect vantage point for seeing how bursts of bold colours and textures can transform a space into a modern apartment — even in a chaotic city like Mumbai.

“When we set out to design a home, we ensure the client’s personality shines through. We decided on a neutral shell for this apartment and ensured that colourful art, accessories, and cushions popped out through the palette,” says interior Shivani Ajmera, co-founder of the Mumbai-based design firm, Quirk Studio. Modern art pieces have been cleverly juxtaposed with playful accents and wallpapers to design a space that is eclectic but undeniably urban. The use of simple graphic patterns and vivid colours prevent the space from feeling overly rustic. “We kept the layout of the living and dining areas open to ensure seamless connectivity. We added bench seating between the spaces to make the apartment perfect for hosting parties and get-togethers,” adds Shivani. This apart, the team at Quirk Studio used pristine white marble all along the passage, living area, and master bedroom; they opted for wooden flooring in the kids bedroom and guest room to bring in some warmth.

Quirk Studio has used floral wallpaper to pack a lively visual punch in this 3BHK home. For all the bedrooms, the team selected a delicate floral wallpaper. The master bedroom has a lovely grey cherry blossom which complements the grey-and-white colour scheme of the room. The kids bedroom comes with a watercolour patterned in pink floral wallpaper, while also serving as a reminder for the girls to not scribble on the walls. A fun bunk bed also doubles up as a storage unit. For the guest room, the team opted for a blue floral wallpaper. During the design process, the couple let the team at Quirk Studio in on a secret: that they are a wee bit obsessed with plants. The team brightened up the space with low-maintenance indoor plants, instantly create a lively mood in a refreshing way. The end result is as cozy and inviting as it is unpretentious and functional.
