Aditi Sharma Design Studio draws in boutique hotel vibes for this exquisite South Delhi apartment
JUN 5, 2021 | By Urvika Barua
Located in Vasant Kunj, this 2,000 sq ft abode designed by Aditi Sharma Design Studio embodies the style, distinction and intimacy of a boutique hotel. Not only is this home a labour of love but also partly curated during the lockdown period and mostly managed through technological aids—video calls and photographs!
The rooms were uniquely crafted to ensure that residents witness a novel experience every time they explore this home, as visitors are engulfed in its minimal yet unconventional decor. The ambience is easygoing, energetic, and full of character.
Boasting a multitude of attributes, it is influenced by a boutique hotel’s aesthetic, elegance and privacy. The house has been developed to deliver the warmth and cosiness of a private residence as well as the vacation vibe of a hotel. This apartment humanises the space!
The elements of the ambience are induced in the apartment’s white and wood minimalist form. The home is accentuated with mystery in order to preserve the simplicity and enchanting aesthetic. Innovative aspects such as complementing Italian furniture, artworks, plants, and wall tiles have been used to enhance the subdued colour scheme.
As one enters, the dark grey toned, open garden welcomes within the premises leading into the living and dining area—laid down in grey marble. A stunning centre table adorns the living space, by Decastelli, an Italian metal furniture maker, and the furniture surrounding it is custom made.
Adorning the living space is a gorgeous concrete artwork done by Greytone which draws inspiration from the concrete jewellery they design, followed by a round black-painted rattan bar unit that balances the vibrancy of the living space. The television unit’s concrete finish adds yet another layer of texture to the grey space. An arc concrete table from Molteni & Dada, crafted by Foster and Partners is embellished with terrazzo lights and is placed against the bevelled timber panelling that gives the dining space an organic and lavish aesthetic.
Keeping in mind the ongoing pandemic and the prevalent work from home culture, a quiet workspace with light pine wood tones and contrasting white glass cabinets, has been linked to the living space along with being equipped with a separate entry for staff.
Maneuvering through the living space, the guest bedroom comes in sight, which is decked in muted neutrals and pine. Next in line is the cosy master bedroom with brawny wooden pieces which caves around the bed. Both the bedrooms have distinct characteristics, although they are both serene.
A wooden accent wall is accentuated by a grey fabric bed with a blue television set in the master bedroom. The guest bedroom, on the other hand, is emphasised by a custom-made pinewood bed and minimal white walls.
The wall panels not only liven up the space, but also effectively camouflage the doors, culminating in much less unnecessary clutter and an immaculate appearance.
Pops of vibrant hues and an intriguing material mix have been introduced to the purity of whites, greys, and brown hues. The varied textures, notably wood, have been incorporated to heighten the house’s sense of warmth and liveliness. The textures have been skillfully developed to counterbalance one another.
“We adopt a fundamental norm, we design spaces that elicit the appropriate sentiments and make people feel more at ease. Experimenting with the ideal materials, hues and lighting is our way to boost the space’s living experience,” shares Sharma.
This stunning residence illustrates the influence of natural shapes, art and objects. With fleeting trends, the intention was to develop an upbeat yet relaxing environment for the home away from home with understated decor. The owners are guaranteed a new experience of personal space each time, with minimal effort!
