Talking about the material palette, Mansi says, ”We brought in neutral earthy tones in, to make the space look bright, giving it a coastal vibe. Raw finishes  on the furniture such as tables, shelves, decor objects give it a hand-carved aesthetic. A special focus has been laid on sustainability with natural materials such as textiles, rattan, etc.”
