Stay Grounded: For a bedroom in stone and wood
NOV 24, 2015 | By Tasneem Merchant
Escape from the urban jungle and hole up in your natural cave. An all wood and stone Konkan style boudoir, just like this one in a spacious Alibaug bungalow designed by Mumbai based firm Malik Architecture, is the perfect excuse to become a recluse.
High vaulted slatted ceiling covered with Mangalore tiles, timber bed and stone floors are all that it takes to create a simple, clean and comfortable bedroom. The flowing indoors and outdoors add another dimension to the bedroom. A single glass wall serves the same purpose.
Populate the room with neutral accessories for a muted look. Aim for shades of white or wood accents only. Use the vast floor space to experiment – pick nude coloured natural stone, black kadappa or kota. Natural lighting eliminates the need for excessive fixtures. Choose a statement lighting fixture enough to bathe the room in soft light at night.
Antique wooden trunks, used as side tables, would add class to the overall simplified look.Also read: 5 tables for breakfast in bed
