Embroidered Living

Kunal Barve


This 3BHK apartment in Mumbai exudes an aura of glamour with several of its features hinting at the owner’s deep-rooted connection with the fashion industry. The fashion-related clues are aplenty at this glamourous apartment designed by Interface, starting with the living room area that woos visitors with its sophisticated European accents. The elegantly carved chairs, modern centre and side tables, wall-mounted lamps and an abstract carpet design all convey an enchanted relationship with contemporary Western trends. The main balcony is enclosed with ceiling-to-floor clear glass that permits the family to utilise this area even in the monsoons. The pull of intricate pattern is visible again in the powder room with ogee-patterned flooring. Principal Architect Kunal Barve uses the opportunity to create more drama here with an unusual washbasin where water spouts out from the top of a tilted mirror. The master bedroom with its luxuriant white leather headboard, parquet flooring, chic ceiling lights and floor-to-ceiling wardrobe is also decidedly plush and comfortable.
