Rang Decor Readers Creative Spaces: IX

Mishta & Anirudh
Today under Rang Decor Reader's Creative Spaces, I take you to a colourful Goa-inspired home in Bangalore.

Mishta and Anirudh are a 30-something couple, both designers, one a product designer and the other a graphic designer, decided to build over Anirudh’s family home’s existing ground floor bungalow on a 60 x 40 plot in Sadashivnagar, Bangalore.

The design of the house revolves around three courtyards and two trees.

Mishta explains,"A courtyard on the second floor at the back of the house is carved out to let a mango tree spread it’s limbs...

...and a main courtyard, also on the second floor, at the front of the house, is designed to pay homage to Geoffrey Bawa’s tropical style with a pond and landscaping."

The over-arching theme of the house has been heavily influenced by the couple’s love for Goa, a destination they run off to, to recharge, every two and half months.

Mishta adds, "The idea was not to recreate a Goan house, but to pick Portuguese influences, through colour and form and combine that with the sense of an open Asian tropical house."

Mishta adds, "The main colour scheme for the house is yellow ochre and dark green. The flooring is cool green kota stone with small floral tiles inlayed at intervals.

Common passageways are in black and white checks. Rustic tiles in terracotta and green have been used in the flooring of the courtyards. Ceramic floral tiles were sourced from Spain and fitted into niches in all the courtyards."

The furniture was designed and made in collaboration with a company in Jodhpur. Look up 'Kraft n Decor Overseas' on the web and speak with Nimesh Surana,the owner.You can even send him pics of stuff you like and he'll reproduce it for you and truck it to where-ever you are.It's great!:)

Utterly gorgeous and unique. Love the way the colours have been used. It has such a south indian flavour to it. Beautiful!

Sunita said...

What a colour-soaked home! It has tropical-ness literally stamped on every square inch.
I looked at that water-body in the courtyard and kept thinking how much plants would love it. In my mind, I can see a forest of heliconias and orchids blooming their heads off there!

Gorgeous home - so warm and vibrant, yet with a sense of serenity about it. I actually visited Geoffrey Bawas's country home, Lunu Ganga,in Sri Lanka - it is such an amazing place, simle, elegant, in touch with nature...
