Project Description

This mid-century bungalow was transcended to modern design combined with cool Scandinavian flair. At the core of its design is a neutral color palette, crisp design, warm décor additions and plenty of natural light – features that make it so very distinctly Scandinavian. The living space pictures a white backdrop, with bluish-gray sectional that can be easily moved around depending on the space requirements. Pristine white laminated shutters against the smoky grey Pergo wood composite floors, edged with graphite coated aluminum sliding doors that bring in sensational light into the once dreary dull setting. This modern minimalism embraces urban classiness underlining an immaculate standalone bar/pantry. The bar designed to integrate modern amenities such as the fridge, microwave that are bedecked in alpine mist ceasarstone worktop; combined with translucent shelving & ample storage space to create a captivating and relaxing family room. The opaque living walls were replaced with retractable sliding glass doors gives he effect of ‘breaking fourth’ into a petite semi enclosed oasis designed for simple outdoor pleasures. Shaded to perfection with a modern sleek double laminated skylight, this retreat induces a breezy yet private trendy appeal owing to the intricate slat-work operable trellis modules. Hints of local eccentricities such as clay fired wire-cut brick walls were originated to add a rustic charm to this unexpected cozy sit-out.

The Nordic bedrooms were born out of demand for simplicity, efficiency and a sense of cheerful elegance, it showcases a clean-lined, minimalist setting that also embraces a hint of color, geometric wallpaper and textural beauty. The use of limited, curated decor with sleek chaise lounge in ivory leather, straight vertical lines of the aluminium profile facilitates in creating a tidy walk in wardrobe that seems both inviting and cordial. An ironing board discreetly hidden in a wall mount that you can pull and touch up a few wrinkles will help in completing all the essentials to a live-in luxury closet. Quality precedes quantity here, and frugality is interlaced with sophistication and minimalism!
