If you want to know the kind of interior designer Sanjyt Syngh is, stroll through this apartment. His 2,400 sq. ft. Delhi home is suffused with his signature design sensibilities. Named the ‘Eclectic Apartment’, it is equal parts fun and unexpected.
Colourful artwork dots every wall. Right at the entrance you come face to face with a knots and crosses installation. A #WTFish mirror installation hangs on the wall of the living room. A shiny pink rabbit sculpture makes an innocuous corner more interesting. One could spend hours examining each work of art that Syngh has collected from his travels. He believes that art is a form of story-telling; some of the art is quirky, some of it rebellious, some inspired from memories of childhood. The artwork is even based on what we as a society have become.
“It’s a story expressed through different mediums. I started to build layers and would describe the result as Eclectic-Luxe,” says Syngh.
Located in one of the quieter lanes of South Delhi, this house comprises of a living room, dining room, family room, two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a powder room. The planning was done in a way that the spaces are well connected, but don’t interfere with each other.
The idea was to create an edgy space focusing on the furniture, art and sculptures, while everything else becomes incidental.The designer even places a calling card like artwork in one of the bedrooms. An American Express credit card, with the beginning of his name.
Syngh believes in the volume of depth dark colours can lend to a room, hence the home has a slightly darker colour palette; something that is rare in the decoration of Indian spaces. Syngh describes the apartment in one simple word, “curated”.
