While Monday blues have just started, this grey and blue home designed by Studio GSA Architects Pvt Ltd will make you forget the concept of monday blues altogether.

The curious brief

The homeowners of this ravishing blue and grey house are tile distributors with an impeccable sense of style, they had a clear vision of what they wanted. Wanting something sophisticated, subtle and understated. The studio helped bring their ideas to fruition.

With sophistication at its core, the theme of using mainly blues and greys is evident throughout the space with random pops of colours included in the furnishings and art pieces.

Tour every turn of the home 

Entering the space, you are greeted with the living room and the dining space. In the living room one can find stunning warm wooden accents along with an eye-catching painting. The furniture is upholstered in deep jewel tones and brings the space to life. The living unit acts as a backdrop for the TV, masks the pooja room and conceals some much needed storage.

Ideas to bookmark

Each and every room has its own personality, and even though furniture plays a huge part in achieving that, the different walls and patterns in each room give the rooms their own voice.

When asked what the best part about designing the home was, the designer stated that the toilets were coincidentally the best part. Being given the creative freedom and playing with colours and patterns was extremely rewarding.
