SSA Design Studio carves out an all-white interior shell with predominantly neutral tones that exudes visual interest through subtle detailing and choice of materials…

Australian white marble flooring with white polycoated furniture, white layered walls and white ceilings are the unifying threads running throughout the 1,800 sq ft single-family residence located in suburban Mumbai.

An open-plan living-cum-dining depicts identical panels designed in leather and creative MDF, where one doubles up as dining bench backrest, whilst the other as TV wall. A hint of sheen in the beige curtains; carefully curated artifacts; mother-of-pearl inlayed into the dining table and doors manage to pique a visitor’s curiosity.

A grayish-blue agate breakfast counter-top becomes the cynosure of all eyes, further highlighted by spot lighting, whilst a strip of blue lighting under the kitchen platform adds a sparkle. 

Being in the hospitality business, the client loves to entertain at home, so spaciousness is augmented viz. mirrors, clean and straight lines, a neutral colour palette, and floor-to-ceiling windows etc. – ably carving out areas for functional and socializing requirements.

Small details make a huge difference to this project. Fluid wall contours anoint the children’s bedroom, where free-flowing curvilinear forms wrap the furniture, twist around the walls and go right up to the ceiling; resonating with varying moods, when lit up with colour-changing LEDs. The TV room doubles up as a guest bedroom, furnished with an over-scaled built-in bed and a non-standard wardrobe of varying depths. The bathrooms spell luxury in dark Italian marbles – a direct contrast to the muted shades of the home…

‘Non-standard’ is the underlying mantra here; the clean-lined no-fuss d├ęcor and non-cluttered spaces are eclectically evocative with subtle touches of luxury and aesthetically designed lighting that completes the apartment with understated flourish.
