Melissa Bradford

Quaint curios, rustic finishes, and surprises about just about every corner remodel a Gurugram condominium into a vision of beachside living in breezy Goa, the faraway Indian point out that stretches together the Arabian sea. Architects Navya Aggarwal and Simran Gawri built the residing room, dining nook, and principal bed room of this two-bed room apartment on a tight 60-day deadline by reducing structural interventions. They instead paid out focus to the smallest of details: curtain ties and cushion addresses have been given as substantially fat as the tough furnishings, and the end result is a household that is sprinkled with surprises at each convert.

“The shoppers ended up in Goa for really some time all through the lockdown,” explains Navya. “They stated it was often quite breezy and their lodging ended up laid out in open up floor program. They needed that mirrored in their long term dwelling as well—something everyday and welcoming.” Since the apartment would also be house to the clients’ young daughter and their tiny dog, they required the style to be mess-friendly and disaster-evidence.

All the household furniture is tailor made-developed and created of ashwood, a content whose yellow tones blend effectively into the bright, beachy palette of sea greens and minty blues. “You will also see a large amount of whites, and a great deal of sandy shades,” says Navya. “There’s a ton of textures at play, but not a ton of contrast within any solitary piece.”

The centerpiece of the dwelling area is an oversized coffee desk that anchors the seating arrangement. A sofa sits across from the Television set, adjacent to a customized-built bench with an open up-fluted doweled back again. “None of the home furniture items have been designed to match specifically,” the architect suggests, adding that “it’s about finding up elements that operate effectively collectively and complement every single other.” On the wall, a series of clay faces from Clayzz add a contact of whimsy to the space. A area of interest in the corner was carved out to accommodate a smaller bar, completed in distressed white with a cornice accent. “All the smooth furnishings, specially all the curtains, ended up saved as light and breezy as doable,” she provides. A macrame set up by O’strings Hooked up was customized-created to mirror the colours that element by means of the place.

To enhance the tones of ashwood and cane, the condominium is decorated with tufted toss pillows and hand-crafted ceramics that bring a contact of playful softness to the earth-toned palette.
