Having a home office or studio is significantly convenient. However, when the need to brainstorm design ideas for a project or collection arises, there’s nothing more comfortable than a studio situated in peaceful environs. Mother daughter duo Iqrup and Ritika Dhamijas’ studio combines both these ideals. Situated in their farmhouse in Delhi, it is the perfect spot for contemplating and ideating.
Quiet study Surrounded by trees, dense shrubbery and flowers, the home studio is a cosy and classically English space that complements the rest of the abode. Its elegant interiors create a calm and productive environment to induce creative exploration.
“Sitting in different areas of the room changes your perspective. For example, moving to a sofa rather than always sitting on a desk can put one in a different frame of mind,” says Ritika.
Keeping that in mind, their workplace is artfully interspersed with comfortable seating areas. “We love to mix and match and, in true Iqrup + Ritz style, the furniture is an eclectic mix of antique English and colonial Indian furniture,” adds Iqrup.
European elegance French windows allow natural light in, providing a view of lush gardens and peacocks strutting their magnificent plumage. Stained glass in the internal wall gives a faceted, mystical view, and forms mesmeric shadows on surfaces.
