Interior designer: Tanuja Yogesh Rane

Construction Company: Tanuja and Associates

The residential 2000 sqft project in Mumbai, India aimed to create a fluid space, designed in a modern style with maximum usability of space.

The design brief given to Tanuja & Associates for master suite was to exceed luxury. The original space of two bedrooms and two bathrooms was smartly transformed into one lavish master suite and walk-in-wardrobe with an exquisite Master Bathroom. The conceptual combination of modern design with traditional furnishings.

Artwork played a key role in designing this master suite. The material palette was white, cream and gold and exclusive White Statuario Marble was used to enhance beauty. The concept of using luxurious finishes and fabrics amalgamated with custom made corian jali work and brass grill on the wardrobe shutters adds luxury detail. Though the palette is monochrome, red fabric for the headboard is added as a highlighting backdrop for backlit corian jali work, the hint of gold is reflected in golden wallpaper, handles, sheer curtain, throw cushions and in the fabric of sofa. Printed fabric and corian jali has a traditional touch balanced by modern linear profile lights in the ceiling continuing to the opposite veneer panelling of TV unit. The small entrance passage seems larger by artistically designed brown tinted mirrors and linear profile lights matching to TV veneer panel.

The exquisite master Bathroom forms part of a walk-in-wardrobe area, which also has laser cut traditional jali design made out of brass plate shutters. The same design continues on the mirror. The master bathroom seamlessly blends the finest materials like travertine marble creating a bathroom of the utmost grandeur. Echoing the drama of the Master Bedroom. The intricate traditional pattern design is laser cut in the tiles and filled with golden grouting this has created a contrasting backdrop for the unique feature of travertine marble. Refined Kohler golden taps and accessories add a strong finishing touch, complimenting and harmonizing all elements besides the functionality.
