This is a project where for the first time I dealt with very classy & respectable clients who are based out of Mumbai.
So all communication was done online, with 2-3 visits totally.
The Kannan’s were exceptionally clear with what they wanted- A contemporary look, however towards 70% of the project completion, they wanted to incorporate antique wooden Pillars from Tamilnadu as a Statement feature for their Living room. So we had to start tweeking the entrance of the living to support the pillars. All finishes were done in Veneer with Matt polish, Italian marble, Laminated glass amd wall paper accents.
Their Master suites on the 1st Floor, boasted of an unusually large space, therefore giving Rema full creative advantage! Apart from the panelled back for their king size bed, she designed a eloborate entertainment unit which adorns the opposite wall & not only holds the TV + AV equipment but also sufficient shelf space for their personal book collection. Also, a very sleek & functional study welcomes them at the entrance to their room. The walk-in wardrobe was carefully & meticulously executed incorporating all of The Kannan’s personal & security needs.
The guest rooms were practically yet aesthetically designed, but what is most special is their daughter’s room also on the 1st Floor. She specifically wanted a 4-Poster bed against a English Summer floral wallpaper. Even thought we were apprehensive about it, she insisted. This actually created a cozy elegant & very feminine feel to her room!
Their Family room is designed to package entertainment & a Beautiful Library. So we used the entire left wall for this unit & a Custom designed Collapsible veneered door to divide this Private space with the common area.
All in all the project took us 4 months to complete & hand over.
The Kannan’s Villa is a sprawling 5000sft of Ground + First Floor with surrounding landscaped gardens in a posh Gated community in Bangalore.
