Art Connoisseur Rajshree Pathy's Residence.

When I first saw Rajshree Pathy's home featured in 2004 issue of Design Today, I was completely spellbound. Various art forms coming together to form this great space.

The first & second pics. are Madhubani wall painting by award-winning artist Shivan Paswan. I love the balance provided by the white cushion against the colourful backdrop.

The third pic. is that of dining room with a huge head by Ravinder Reddy, which gives it a dramatic look.

The fourth pic. is the entrance to her house with floating stones and wall painting by artists from Kerala.

The fifth pic. shows her various art collection of 18 years.

Rajshree conceived the design of the house herself and worked with a local engineer. She likes to call her house a museum, a resort & an artist's retreat all in one.

Beautiful. Hope you agree?

it would be called a great space, if it was a hallway of a grand conglomerate.
