The Plum House: A modern house maintaining functionality and luxury

Mar 30, 2019

The Plum House, a-1,050 sq ft three-BHK apartment, is a contemporary modern house. Located in Vile Parle, Mumbai, it is the brainchild of interior designer Bhumika Patel and architect Chintan Patel, Principal and Creative Director, Limited Edition Design Studio. Rohit Doshi, the client, wanted a modern contemporary house with warm ambience. Even though the material and colour palette is quite different in every room, the overall vibe of the house is one. Doshi had a clear requirement of enough storage space with easy maintenance and a tab bit of glam. Limited Edition Design Studio had a free hand to design, and keeping the requirements in mind, the firm chose material and colours for each room, representing their client’s taste. An uncluttered space with clean lines and balanced warmth was created, thus maintaining functionality and luxury. The project was completed in the span of six months.


Taking advantage of the length of the room, the firm created a linear ceiling, that acts as a visual passageway. The living room is designed using beige and grey undertones with subtle use of teakwood on the swing and a custom-made TV unit. Hints of plum colour on the swing and sofa gives the interiors an earthy yet dynamic look. The mirror and console unit adds depth to the room, while the white and black polka dot rug ties the whole seating area together.


The idea of the dining table with sofa seating on one side and chairs on the other has been created to save space. In order to add depth, a painted glass has been used on the wall with dainty fabric pendant lights hanging from the ceiling. The large semi-open and closed unit at the entrance provides ample storage and has been made on site, using armani veneer and marble with small curios that dot the shelves.


Vertical slim metal rods have been added to create a delicate partition between the living room and kitchen. Three huge floating marble cuboids have been created for the bookshelf. A small mandir rests on the slim metal rods, thus creating the right juxtaposition. A teakwood pattern has been added on the TV unit. The TV panelling was finished in armani veneer and piatra grey marble. A clutter-free kitchen has been created by using statuario tile for the kitchen dado, while quartz has been used for its platform.


The firm has designed a mix of 3D-panelling on the entire wall of the bedroom and flat paneling for the headboard wall in order to add a touch of drama to the room. Headboard has been finished in veneer. Corian bed and side table has been made on site with custom stone handles. Soft light from glass pendant lamp creates a glow on the multifaceted backdrop.


Cocoa grey back painted glass has been used on the wardrobe, which compliments the veneer undertones. Custom matte brass handle has been made in order to add a bit of zing to the monotone look of the room. A nook for dark vertical niches have been created in junction with the white corian TV unit. In order to utilise every inch of space in every room, the firm chose to create full height wardrobes, beds with storage, TV units and dressing storage.


The peacock blue wardrobe and muted elegant brown back wall has been finished in veneer. Double brown and tan headboard in suede adds luxe to the room. Custom agate handles have been used on the side table with pendant lights.


The scallop-patterned peacock blue wardrobe dominates the entire room but the floral cushions add a soft feminine touch to it. Custom brass handle has been made to complement the pattern. The door near the wardrobe leads to the bathroom, and has been completed by using off-white and gold motif tiles on the walls.


In order to give the room a young energetic vibe, the firm created a dark sleek room using black croc leather and olive green. The croc leather adds a luxurious element to the room, while olive green creates a youthful atmosphere. Low height cushy bed with grey side tables have been made on site and the bed is finished in suede.
