Art pieces and furniture that could summon gladiators. A ceiling that harkens architecture from ancient Europe. Statement furniture that looks mottled with age…. Medieval castle? Try actor Kushal Tandon’s living room in his modern vintage Mumbai loft.
Envisioned by P S Design of the city, the 3BHK abode radiates a bohemian old-world chateau vibe with a taste of modern appeal. “We got to experiment with the decor in the living room, where the base palette is mostly neutral thanks to the white walls. This is accentuated by deep red and brown shades of fabrics on chairs and cushions,” discloses Priyanka Pradeep, principal architect of the firm.
The client’s primary requirement was to have an open common area that would allow him to entertain his guests. “Light and movable furniture was crafted by the in-house team so that the residents could allot plenty of space for dancing and moving around,” she adds. The bar unit next to the dining area in the same room is the highlight of the space, where the top of the unit houses the mirror finished bar and the bottom has room to stow crockery.
While the living room exudes a classic charm, the interiors of bedrooms and kitchen is treated differently. A variety of colours and styles run throughout the house. For instance, rich copper tones are used in the master bedroom, while a fun play of orange and blue is incorporated in another bedroom. The guest boudoir displays an elegant combination of pastel colours against a white background enhanced with a floral print from Elitis on the wall behind the bed.
