This colorful home in Beaumonde, India was designed by ZZ Architects at the 31st floor of a building in a hi-end luxury premises and comes with a 360 degree view of the city below. The owner’s only request was a home that defines their lifestyle, love for entertaining and a casual yet sophisticated look. The architects had already designed their earlier villa and it was necessary to develop this apartment based in Beaumonde, a luxury home in South Mumbai differently.
The design concept for the Gupta Apartment revolved along the idea of reflecting the sky-blue color within the home with a base touch of solid grey as a background. It had to be very subtle and was very challenging to balance the same in complete absence of a natural wood tone on the inside of the living and dining space. A base of white along the floors in the passage transverse the users from one space to another. Accents of linen, suede and other fabric tones add a harmony within the home. The sensibilities of selection of the pieces of furniture and art, play along the central theme. In exchange to the calm indoors the continuous deck that connects the rooms on the periphery has been finished in natural wood standing out well against the deep blue sky tones in the evenings.

There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite bedroom.
Green in the girls’ bedroom coupled with pink works surprisingly well and it elegantly complements other colors such as brown and orange as well. Working with more than 3 or 4 bright colors in a room requires great care, perfect planning and a hint of ingenuity that lets each hue standout even while blending with the overall look. While it does sound like a risky proposition, get it right and you will have a playful kids’ room that is a visual treat.
