What do you get when the timeless, regal style of a by-gone era is infused into the modern-day ephemerality of Mumbai? This gorgeous penthouse, apparently.
Designed by Mumbai’s KNS Architects, the interior radiates an eclectic mix of tradition, modernity and exquisite charm.
A monochromatic colour palette follows throughout the house, with an emphasis on darker tones. The occasional accents of gold and brass are contrasted by the eye-catching hues of burgundy, orange and red that adorn all the living spaces. Set against this, the plush velvet furnishings too are a fusion of contemporary and classic.
Even before you enter the front door, this luxurious home gives a peek into the opulence that lies beyond. A stunning chandelier greets you in the lift lobby and the Bronze Armani flooring leads a polished trail throughout the home. Hand-painted canvases, wall murals and statement light fixtures create a bespoke, artistic backdrop inside as tasteful pieces of art, accessories and furnishings lend fresh colour to an otherwise golden-bronze palette.
While the rustic, raw and cool grey interiors of the entertainment area render it as a casual hangout space, veneer panelling, back painted glass, wallpapers and duco/PU paint give a seamless and luxe appeal to the other spaces.
Not only does this rich tone trickle into the family room and the suites on the floor above, the entire 10,000 sq. ft. of this two-storied penthouse is meticulously detailed and accentuated by sophisticated lighting. Minimal chandeliers and upholstery dramatize the height in the living room and the staircase forms another focal piece highlighted by a glass installation. Throughout the expanse of the two floors, the cosiness of a home is not lost to the luxurious scheme.
As such, in this tale, where traditional elegance converges with the current top trends, this penthouse gets it exactly right.
