Chaitali Parikh graduated from Parsons School of Design, NYC in 2007 with a BFA degree in Interior Design. Her deep passion for travelling eventually led her to living in New York and Florence and travel over 25 countries. After having gained experience from prestigious firms such as ICRAVE (Manhattan), Urban Studio and ZZ architects she now runs her own design practice; Inscape Designers, along with her mom Sejal Parikh who studied from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad.

One of the key challenges to pulling off a successful design is; understanding the brief that has been drawn out by the client and thus fulfilling the essentials of that brief with a functional yet aesthetically pleasing proposal.

Traditionally penthouses have always been distinguished by their magnificent view and luxury amenities that it offers. This 1500 square feet penthouse at Colaba, Mumbai has been designed for a young couple who couldn’t get enough of colour and print!

The living room exhibits an identity that alternates between stylish and artsy. It portrays a riot of colour with a patchwork modular sofa and a customized striped chaise lounge that rests on a layered carpet from Cocoon.

The existing columns in the balcony are painted with graphic black and white patterns that not only add a sense of drama to the entrance view but also complement the rich myriad of colours used for the interior spaces.

The French windows in the living room further open out into the 50 feet long balcony hence initiating a visual interaction between the two spaces.

The balcony covered with a glass and sleeper wood awning leads to the outdoor hookah area.

A fixed wooden corner seating enhanced with a low mosaic tiled table in the corner of the balcony forms the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the sea view over a few drinks.

The dining area encompasses a square dining table, a bench style seating along with three dining chairs and a customised wooden bar area.

The metallic tiles below the bar cabinets compliment the floating circular dish styled basin thus providing some sobriety from the vivid colours that have been used around this space.

The design palette adopted for the kitchen space comprises of a mix of colourful hand printed ceramic tiles balanced with two solid warm coloured back painted glass shutters and a charcoal grey laminate and granite.

The opening created in the wall standing between the dining area and the kitchen allows natural light to drip in while at the same time keeps the room well ventilated.

The Gustav Klimt style master bedroom is an ode to their honeymoon with the hand painted 9’ x 11’ backlit mural of ‘The Tree of Life’.

The bed headboard painted with a Klimt pattern compliments the mural without distracting from the focal point in the room.

Wall cover clad wardrobe shutters and glossy paint finish on the furniture eliminates the use of veneer or laminate in this area.

The corner bed with the diagonal bookshelf and oblique painted lines in the guest bedroom makes the room look very spacious.

The bar coded grooves of the wardrobe shutters with personalised photos as handles create an illusion of a family photo montage. Hence the actual utility behind the design stays well concealed.

This gorgeous residence is a wonderful example of how spectacular design can be fashionable and family friendly. The clean lines and upscale details peacefully coexist with vivid colours and dynamic furniture that infuse a sense of joie de vivre throughout the house.

“This eclectic design reflects the couple’s vibrant personality which personalizes the residence.”
