A lavishness that matches the larger-than-life vibe of Mumbai City is exactly what Walls and Things’ latest home project is all about. Located in the busy streets of Andheri, the home oozes extravagance but only in the most elegant sense with sculptural pieces, statement artworks and elegant accessories scattered throughout. The project was a work of art created by Interior Stylist & Founder Janavi Javeri and architect Akbar Maredia.
The highlight of this massive 6,000 sq. ft. home has to be the wrap-around balcony; a rare sight in a city like Mumbai, offering a 180-degree view of the city. Going for a fun outdoor vibe, the balcony showcases fun, contemporary pieces such as planters, lanterns, cosy furniture and a bold sculpture complemented by an impressive vertical garden by the bar.
Moving inside, the formal living area is as elegant and grand as it gets. A deep neutral palette sets the tone for the space with statement accessories like crystal decor, vibrant glass vases and candle stands, and a stone finish green glass chandelier amplifying the ambience. The stylists describe the wall on the left as a quirky corner adorned with decorative pieces and a hidden bar unit that lends an artistic appeal to the room. The artistry continues into the passage where bold paintings, quirky wall art,
and coloured mirrors add character and depth movement to the space.
The kitchen is connected to the living room, separated by a sliding door. The designers have used plenty of collapsible elements which enable the clients to use the space as per their requirements. Two examples of this are the collapsible breakfast table in the kitchen and the convertible dining area which can be opened up to enjoy a view of the skyline. The collapsible bar unit on the deck is another fun example.
The bedrooms each have a distinct personality that harmonises with the entire home. Classic, elegant and contemporary is the best way to describe the styles incorporated. Each bedroom has a similar colour palette of neutral white and greys with an additional pop of colour in each. The master bedroom takes on shades of green in the form of a jewelled green ottoman, light green lanterns and orange lighting lamps.
The second takes on deeper hues of blue, which were chosen to match the tones of the sky and clouds. The blue mirror on the wall and statement lighting add a fun dynamic to the room.
The third bedroom takes on a warmer aesthetic with more cream and brown tones to match the wooden walls. Quirky carpets, subtle artwork, and chic decor are the common factor that tie up each of the rooms beautifully. All the bedrooms open up to the beautiful skyline and is connected to washrooms with private deck and the outdoor deck is running all through.
