Studio Saransh strikes a balance of contemporary and traditional design elements in this Ahmedabad home, making it timelessly relatable and relevant to its occupants. 

Materials applied with integrated synergy, a touch of lightness in the choice of furniture and lighting that augments space, and a penchant for simplicity that is the lifeline of timeless appeal are factors that carve this home into a cocoon of unpretentious warmth.

Designed to house a family comprising three generations, the public and private spaces are eloquent with bespoke design elements that soothe and satisfy. A neutral palette with trimmings in brass placates varied tastes in the public spaces, nurturing understated elegance and communicating the largely without-frills lifestyle of the occupants.

The open plan of the living dining is demarcated using a traditional ornate jhoola that differentiates formal from informal living. Taking its cue, a contemporary screen of fluted wood and minimalist brass forms defines the dining area, anchoring the directionality of spaces as well as governing the visual language of the common areas. A variety of textures enliven the living and dining spaces, adding depth and shadows to the elements. With walls finished with a combination of textured and smooth paint separating at the lintel level, fluted glass doors to the private areas, pendent lights, paintings, and indoor plants complete the ambience striking a balance between casual and intimate on one hand, and formal on the other.

Interesting elements personalise the private spaces – the bedrooms – as each is customised to one’s comfort zone. Wainscotting panels constitute a formidable backdrop in the parents’ room, hinting more at the warmth of old-world charm with pastel walls, rather than being intimidating.  The master suite is kept neutral and quaint with fluted wood finding its complement in the panelling here, and a beige and brown palette feeding nonchalant friendliness, whilst the daughters’ room is theme-designed in keeping with the children’s interests. 

Juxtaposing solid and reflective surfaces amid a largely neutral interior envelope and playing with soft and hard lines in equal measure, this interior stands out for its candid design vocabulary.
