A serene redesigned home in Delhi where light takes centre stage

Furniture comprises the second important layer of texture and form in the home, owing to which most of what you see is clad in different shades of taupe, grey and wood. It’s a tapestry of colours mimicking the natural world outside, allowing the sun to illuminate every corner, and leave behind its traces when it’s gone. “Lighting was carefully planned to enhance and create the same mood once the sun went down. The dining area is enhanced by a suspended light. We chose Aim from Flos because of its playful form and its variable cord lengths that can be used in multiple ways,” Iram says, reemphasizing the fact that light lies at the very centre of this space’s design. 

When you enter the bedrooms, you realize that at no point does the home behave out of character. These chambers, in reality, heighten the feeling of calm. Beds heavily cushioned, floors dotted with old carpets, and windows wrapped in natural linen curtains cozy them up.

The main bedroom is bathed in ample light like every other space in this home.

This bedroom also has an easy chair with a foot stool that is designed to encourage you to linger. A beautiful desk, lit by a paper lamp is part of the bedroom so that if needed the client can easily work from home.

The main bathroom, in fact—with its dark grey stone floors laid in a pattern; glazed soft grey brick tiles on its walls, and two other walls in a “patthar putty” hand-finished paint, along side a gleaming black marquina marble counter and blacksplash—makes a strong design statement.

But what truly seals the deal are the artworks in this home—a whole range of them that only add to the myriad moods of this freshly minted space. “The living room has a sensational work by Julien Segard from Gallery Experimenter, a beautiful Jitish Kallat Rain Study from Nature Morte, along with a photograph by Hashim Badani that “blows” you away, all puns intended,” laughs Sultan. In the main bedroom hangs a meditative Kaimurai work from Blueprint Gallery, while the guest bedroom boasts a Ravi Mistry photograph.
