The designers started with a clean slate, a builder-grade two-bedroom apartment. No major structural changes were made, but they transformed the space with the interior elements, like furniture made on site by the U and I Designs team, and pops of color that are a signature of the studio. Sonal says, “The couple entertain a lot and wanted their home to reflect their personality. They weren’t looking for a sterile, muted, all-white space, they wanted a warm, fun, vibrant, and comfortable space.
The house opens onto the dining room, a white and brown haven of peace, designed around the table that the couple brought back from their old home. To the right of the dining room is the open kitchen. The idea was to create an immersive and upbeat space that was functional and fun. A curved entry welcomes you, followed by a kitchen island that doubles as a convenient food prep counter and breakfast table. Gold accents provide glimmers of luxury. Sonal explains that the kitchen was perhaps the easiest to design as husband and wife agreed they wanted an abundance of blue here and an emphasis on fun and functionality.
The dreamy living room shines in soft shades of gray, illuminated by abundant natural light. It is also the best example of the collision of two worlds. Sleek contemporary furniture with metal legs meets a classic teak wood swing, wall moldings complement minimalist lighting, and pops of color enter blue armchairs.
