An oasis for a mother-daughter in Gurgaon
Noida-based interior designer Sakshi Sharma designed this home for a mother-daughter in an apartment at Emaar Palm Terrace Select, Gurgaon. The duo wanted an abode that is serene, calm and tranquil. Their love for open spaces and request for maximum storage was another quintessential element focused on. The living and dining areas are highlighted by a stone texture wall. An experiment, the designer tried to replicate rubble masonry. This involved huge sampling with respect to color and creating an ombré effect. This texture creates an aura of raw positivity, making us feel closer to nature.
A space for reverie was important to the owner as she loves to sit and watch the greenery outside with a cup of coffee in hand. Thus, the lounge/ study area is cosy and yet makes a statement with a bookcase that houses her collection of memorabilia from across the globe. A striped chair compliments a chequered rug adding warmth and style.
An artist, the owner wanted her master bedroom to be simple, with lots of space to move around. She loves to paint sitting on the floor so design was kept minimal. An industrial looking study table served the function of storing essential stuff and still not over-loading the corner. The American walnut laminate, with grey, add charm to the bare wall behind.
The wardrobe space in the guest room was subsumed into a master dresser for the owner’s clothing, accessories and bags. Hence, the wardrobe in the master was converted into a closet leading to the washroom. The mother’s room has a wardrobe with a two-panel slider with high gloss laminate (hazel cambric) and ivory lacquered glass in the middle. A small nook has been created to house the God’s idols. A set of three drawers with a PU painted jail with a lotus pattern was decided upon. A backlit effect keeps the religious nook lit up post twilight as well.
