Lighting tips to elevate your home & mood
A perfect amalgamation of traditional and modern aesthetics.
In the pink city of India, one can witness globe-trotting creatives meeting the old Rajasthani traditions. While there are so many artisanal reserves to explore, Jaipur has always seen a marriage of new and old ideas. From narrow lanes to majestic palaces to beautiful houses, the essence of culture can be felt everywhere. In Jaipur, everything is fascinating and has a pinch of art in it. Where the rickshaws are painted in beautiful designs, one can explore the beautiful embroidery and prints on fabrics. In between all, you cannot miss out on the beautiful bungalows of the mesmerising pink city. Built on 700 square yard land, one such bungalow belongs to a family of four, who love their space as much as the city. Located at a prime location in the city, the interiors are conceptualised and designed by Shantanu Garg, who has converted the bungalow into something which is modern yet connected to its root. Let us peep inside and muse it over for inspiration.
At the entrance, one of the most striking aspects is no wallpaper has been used for the walls rather artists from Jaipur were hired to paint the wall in ethnic motifs. The walls are painted in dark navy-blue colour which gives a sense of royalty. The motifs on the wall are painted taking cues from the Rajasthani Meenakari jewellery. The shiny golden coloured jewellery motif gives a perfect contrast to the navy-blue background. Right opposite to the entrance door is a grand puja room. Taking inspiration from the step wells of Rajasthan, the door of the puja room is made of brass. The foyer area has been kept simple which sets the tone for the grand interiors. You can see a wooden chair and an opulent chandelier to complete the whole look.
Walking towards the living area, you get to experience a pop of colour which is subtle and soothing to the eyes. Tones of grey and gold have been used throughout while the wine-coloured armchair and a sari rug adds a perfect contrast to the whole minimalist living room. On the accent wall, instead of going for a fancy wallpaper, the designer chose to give a luxurious look by using a suede wall boiserie with hand-painted octagons on it. The beauty is in every little detail where modern art is blended with Indian aesthetics. The living room has a large window on one side with curtains of the same colour as the wall. Throughout the design, you get to experience the zen vibe which will further be carried to the rest of the house.
The outrageously beautiful dining area is nothing less than royal, no wonder it reflects the Rajasthani royal beauty in its true essence. With a classical dining table that has an amazonite stone and high gloss lacquer grey legs, the dining hall boasts a ceiling of double-height. Decorating the table with tall glass candle holders adds to the luxury of the ambiance. Thanks to the huge glass windows on the side which lets enough sunlight on the dining table making it shine like silver. Not to miss the elevator in the dining area which stands as a piece of art. With the use of grey panels and metallic border, the elevator area is also turned into a divider between living and dining space.
The bungalow houses three huge bedrooms on a single floor. The master bedroom is inspired by the local rickshaw of the pink city. Use of red with rich pink tones adds to the style statement with a red vanity area that resonates the queen’s era. The centre of attraction is a ‘hooded’ bed where the headboard curves up to shelter similar to an autorickshaw. The headboard is beautifully painted throwing a hint of Jaipur street art. No doubt the bedroom is so instagramable and chic that each corner is capable of making a different background for a picture-perfect feed.
Inspired from the traditional Indian way of living, jewellery and textiles, this home is nothing but a beautiful display of culture and an orchestrated pageant of art.
