“Whenever I design a space, I always look into the smallest detail, from the beginning till it’s fully furnished. The accessories that you put must complement the design.”– Rajesh Sheth
With a notion to introduce exceptional and fresh design to the residential and commercial sectors, Mr. Rajesh Sheth laid the foundation for Designer’s Circle in the year 1987.
Designer’s Circle believes in adding a distinctive charm to the space along with a sense of comfort which well defines contemporary living. Well-equipped with a team of qualified individuals, the design firm concentrates on providing the client with a space that is flexible, practical and best fits his budget. The company has put together an incredible portfolio of completed projects ranging from corporate offices to restaurants, retail interiors, hospitals to showrooms, banks to building refurbishments and corporate residential interiors.
Designer’s circle brings to you one such residential space that exemplifies flawless, contemporary design and takes one through the realms of supreme elegance.
The brief specified by the client was to develop the space provided, into a 3900 square feet contemporary abode that would embrace the family’s lifestyle. The owners being cultured in their progressive tastes sought a space that would be flexible yet aesthetically appealing without compromising on the level of comfort. The strong trust worthy bond which was moulded between the client and the designer gave great impetus to the design flow.
The house radiates with luxury and comfort. The interior palette adopted is monochromatic with an occasional splash of colours.
The front wooden door opens into a charming lobby space crowned with a bright red ceiling. This bright red colour scheme adopted limits the grey hues of the lobby so as to balance out its spatial character. The lobby further leads to the drawing room that focuses more on texture than colour. The signature palette of neutrals has been defined in shades of grey, black and silver along with a tint of bright. The grey granite floor finished with a dramatic floor rug stands out as the focal point of the drawing room. In addition to this, the grey leather couch complements the colour palette used for the space.
The custom designed kitchen space is highly functional with a dash of sophistication. The combination of wood, steel and granite gives the space a modern edge. Facing the wooden island is a row of steel shutters which adds a subtle elegance to the kitchen.
The kitchen further opens out into an informal family lounge and dining area. The dining space forms an integral part of any home where friends and family gather together on special occasions to enjoy a collective meal. The body responds to the most subtle way of surroundings and hence it’s important to have a dining space with simple décor, and a warm setting that gives the feel of freshness and cleanliness. Reciprocating to this view, the green dining chairs flanked on all four sides of the dining table, help bring in the outdoor ambience owing to its crisp, refined colour and style. The lighting used above the table adds brightness to the dining area.
Adjoining the dining space is the informal family lounge. The peaceful corner designed with a soft hue lounge sofa nails down as the perfect tête-à-tête spot. The wooden flooring captures the rustic feel of nature, thereby infusing an authentic charm to the space. The siporex floral wall cladding set against the sofa as a backdrop fills the space with a sense of affection and grace.
The creatively designed staircase literally gives one the feel of strolling in the skies. The wooden stairs wrapped around the concrete wall features a hanging metal bird art, the red metal handrail and the artificial yet overwhelming lawn. A blend of these elements creates the perfect vertical link between the two floors.
Internal corridors could be rather dull and seem long if not designed well. In order to make the internal passage interesting, it ought to have a pleasing element of surprise to it. The internal corridor creates a beautiful link between the personal spaces of the house which includes the family room, the kitchen, the dining as well as the bedrooms on the ground floor. The design for the internal corridor on the first floor takes the client through a series of monochromatic sketches set against the wall. In this way the client is given a small art tour as he walks from one room to another.
The walls of the master suite have been beautifully adorned with hand painted antiques. The full height printed pastel leather wardrobe not only serves the purpose of storage but deems fit as the best backdrop for the centrally positioned bed. In this way the wardrobe has been designed in a way to aid the dual purpose of storage as well as that of aesthetic appearance. The dummy fireplace generates a sense of warmth in the room.
The spacious outdoor courtyard with its lush green lawn, flowering plants and screening trees create the perfect mood for soaking up in the summer sun or enjoying the blissful rains. However it doesn’t stop here. Various eye-catching elements such as a bird bath, outdoor sculptures and beautifully designed pergolas summarize the client’s perspective of a soothing outdoor space.
“The best thing about this project is that the design is the reflection of what excites us and allow us to express our individuality. The clean lines of the furniture, minimalist accessories, casually placed art all speak the same language of design. Everything is completely customized and put together with ultimate precision to achieve such mesmerizing Interiors.”
