Interior designer, Sumessh Menon’s signature flair for intricate detailing anoints a three-member family home in Mumbai’s posh Pali Hill with an oomph factor that is as subtle as it is singular…

The 2,400 sq. ft. expanse that is home to a banker, his educationist wife, their teenaged son and two dogs is an eclectic mix of modern style, quirk and ethnic flourishes. For the client, who wanted the home to abound with a range of materials, the interior designer customizes it with aplomb!

A dash of chutzpah is evoked through mildly hypnotic elements that spark quirk and lighten the mood viz., wordy wardrobe shutters; newsprint soft furnishings; cushioned tile dado; giant-sized porcelain cupcake as a kitchen accessory and the like, highlighting a visual and tactile play of elements dramatizing the chic interiors. Diligence in details is seen in softly rounded contours, ensuring a pet-friendly space.
