The Mittal home located in a built-up neighborhood, is stacked on three levels and set in a corner abutting a forest of old trees. The Mittal family traces its roots back to Rajasthan. This heritage posed a unique challenge to us. Bringing innovation to heritage yet being in step with the needs of a modern family really got the creative juices flowing for Fulcrum Studio. Shimmering rooms in royal palaces of Rajasthan inspired the dramatic mirror murals around the dining space.

The formal living and dining spaces are tied together with the customized furniture. The beaten silver coffee tables carry the connection right through the common spaces. The concave mirror art from Rajasthan, known as ‘Thikri’ glistens in the daylight and reflected lights from the chandelier at nights. The window dressing has accents of canvas art which were removable panels. The upholstery for the living area pickes its pattern from the ‘Thikri’ art work. Beams in the ceiling are finished glossy and reflective finish letting the light and view reflect off it.

The master bedroom and children’s bedrooms are located on the lower floor with a double height foyer opening to a spectacular family room on one side. The walls of the foyer cascading down in double layers stop at different heights, floating over the floor. The colorful line art on these make an aesthetic statement.

The son being a huge Chelsea Football Club fan, has a feature wall celebrating the Club Logo in his bedroom. The room is very raw with the use of black and white flooring and metal grid to frame the bed and washbasin, yet is very rich in the overall treatment of colours and upholstery.

Bedrooms are mostly open plans. Master bedroom have the floor lines travel on the wall comprising wardrobes. Spherical glow lights above the onyx basin give a subtle glow to the entire space, creating a warm ambience. The organic element is added to the headboard and window dressing to break the monotony of vertical lines in the room.

The terrace is treated to serve as a party area with the pebble granite flooring on the terrace reflecting the sky above. The indoor and outdoor party area is visually connected by a continuous bar counter and the use of glass partitions. The sculptural element of linear stone boxes with landscape and light ties the different ends of the terrace together. The entire space is treated in muted shades of blacks and greys with an ochre feature wall which brightens up the place at night.
