If the chirping of birds, lush verdant views and plenty of rest are all you crave for throughout this summer, take cues from this woody bedroom in Goa, designed by Anjali Mangalgiri of Grounded.
Create a seamless blend of the indoors and outdoors with large “open-able” teak doors and louvred windows. These facades not only integrate surrounding verandahs into your bedroom plan, but these also give you the option of privacy while making for a lovely play of light and shade.
For those looking to unwind and bask in untouched natural environments, do away with all that’s artificial. In this case, pick wooden furniture and break the monotony with a basalt stone wall. Pining for a laid-back chalet type feel? A rustic wooden four poster bed with matching table lamps will make for an ideal slumberland. You might also consider a handy workstation in complementing shades of wood, just in case work beckons.
