Compliance with the ancient Vaastu system was the foremost request for Azure Interiors’ latest project in Choubey Colony, Raipur. Spread across 6,700 sq. ft. the home was designed entirely following the principles of Vaastu while maintaining a contemporary aesthetic that was still functional and clutter-free.
Given the vibrant natural beauty of the exterior, the interiors were designed to follow a mix of minimalist elements with hints of opulence, be it through statement lighting pieces or hints of gold contrasting the most neutral colour palette.
While the house mostly follows a contemporary design, the materials used exude a certain richness and timelessness. Walking through the main door, the first thing one notices is the temple sitting close to the entrance of the formal drawing room. Luxurious and elegant, the drawing room, like most of the home has a neutral colour palette, hints of cream and beige contrasted by vibrant green chairs and raw silk wallpaper. The main attraction of the room has to be the selenite top centre table which sits sharply atop the distressed textured rug.
The living room on the left is one of the most stunning areas. A double-height space, the living room features an elaborate sofa arrangement, accompanied by chic black and gold details. Statuario marble has been used on the double-height TV unit that is strategically placed against the double-height window and hides the curtain when not in use.
The dining area, on the same floor, is another interesting section. Taking the centre stage is an eight-seater marble dining table set with plush nude and gold chairs. A statement lighting piece above the table and a monochrome artwork at the back add character to the space.
There are a total of four bedrooms in the home, one on the ground floor and three on the first. The primary bedroom presents quite the opulent set-up with a scheme of classic beige, white and gold. Plush furnishings in the form of bed back upholsteries and an organic sofa enhances the room further.
The three bedrooms on the top include the daughter’s room, the son’s room and of course the guest room. The son’s bedroom has an attached bathroom and shares a layout similar to the primary suite.
The daughter’s bedroom experiments with colour with a deep red hue coating the bed’s velvet framework. Joining the colour fest, the guest bedroom employs a mellow pastel green palette coating the cane-woven bed and matching side tables.
The third-floor houses some interesting amenities such as a gym, jacuzzi, spa room and home theatre as well as servants’ quarters. Certainly a challenging project, Azure Interiors manages to capture the beauty of contemporary design while fulfilling the requirements of Vaastu beautifully.
