Mumbai-based luxury interior design firm Martini Design Studio has launched its New Show Home in Juhu, Mumbai earlier this month. Exuding a series of carefully selected thumbnails with high-end finishes and great attention to detail, the new space was designed by founder and interior designer Manasvi Pillai. The apartment was said to be an amalgamation of international elegance and contemporary sophistication, giving it a unique and individual flavor.
The apartment spans 4,000 square feet spread over two floors. The first floor includes the lounge areas including a formal living room, recreation room, dining room, powder room, fitness room and bar area, while the upper floor includes the master bedroom, child’s bedroom and office space.
Upon entering through the main gate, the first thing one notices is the breathtaking view – a rarity in a city like Mumbai – from the floor-to-ceiling windows. That, and the impressive use of maximalist elements like the elegant champagne-colored sofa, the jewel-colored plush seat, silk carpet and suspensions. Considering the challenges that come with creating a maximalist space, Martini Design Studio does a wonderful job of including elements that complement rather than clash and create an overdone abode.
Art was used as a prop to elevate the creativity of the space. From paintings to 3D artworks, these include innovative pieces that literally stand out. Like this gorgeous piece of art that looks completely normal at first glance, a vibrant pink piece made up of rice paper flowers. However, the artwork displays a gradient effect as you move from right to left, changing from pink to purple to vibrant blue.
The light fixtures are another striking aspect of this apartment. Following the all or nothing mantra, Martini Design Studio has curated a collection of pieces that are truly hard to miss. Like the pendant lights in the living room, the crystal chandelier in the kitchen, the sparkling pendant light in the bathroom or the extremely artistic lamp in the master bedroom. While each one blends seamlessly into the room they’re in, they stand out enough to strike up a conversation.
Statement and finesse become synonymous when it comes to apartment furniture. The striking coffee table paired with the curved sofa and zebra-patterned chair in the living room creates a flow of textures and colors while staying true to the neutral palate of the space. In addition to the heavy apartment aesthetic, velvet is a material that helps glamorize the space. It can be seen that it has been widely used in furniture such as sofas, chairs, sofas, bedding, carpets, etc. These in royal tones contribute to the luxury of the space.
The recreation room is one of the most interesting spaces in the apartment, matching the urban glamorous charm of the house. Another room with a perfectly candid view, the recreation room features a huge, one-of-a-kind Filotto Wood Edition pool table right in the center of the room. The round physique armchair bucks the trend by reassuring the natural appeal of standing above a colorful tufted bird’s eye rug.
Between the recreation room and the living room sits a charming wood-paneled bar with Manhattan bar cabinets and gun table lamps on both sides of the gold counter. The bar’s black and gold theme has an elevated sense of grandeur that’s perfect for a refreshing drink.
Floor-to-ceiling windows are a hit with the apartment, given the view outside. These breathtaking views provide a picturesque backdrop, especially when dining in the dining room.
Keeping up with the changing interior design trends post covid, adding a home gym makes sense in the apartment. The fitness room, as it’s called, is stocked with everything functional, from dumbbells and kettlebells to gym balls and a punching bag. The cohesive color story makes everything seem elevated and polished, while the ceiling-mounted track-mounted black spotlights add to the industrial flair. An elaborate gold mirror running the length of the floor, paired with quirky artwork, helps maintain the energy when using the room. Interestingly, the apartment also has a climbing wall for the more adventurous.
Style and comfort
The bedrooms on the upper floor are very carefully organized. Both bedrooms stick to the neutral theme, where the master bedroom sticks to a mix of deeper hues, and the kid’s bedroom has a warmer neural tone with brown, cream and beige . Considering how fast they grow, keeping a simpler aesthetic for the kids room makes it easy to switch between themes without making major design changes.
The master bedroom has an aesthetically pleasing space with walls clad in metallic cladding behind a velvet headrest that wraps around the queen bed and bedside tables to accent the lamps in pure raw silk and brass accents, defining a nuanced look that incorporates the painted and textured stucco ceiling.
The two floors are connected by an elevator, with a fun addition of a slide. While this element has been designed for children, we see adults enjoying the slide just as much!
Founder and interior designer Manasvi Pillai’s enchanting design sense infuses freshness and functionality into the space. Built to high-end standards, the show house offers precision, excellence, comfort and aesthetics in every configuration.
