The city which has always been known for its coal mines and reserves, now has got a touch of royalty with this palatial bungalow. Designed with a theme of Indian traditional crafts and arts, this place has the perfect amount of luxury and modernity along with a simplistic sense of values.
Don’t all of us dream of living in a palace? But in today’s time it’s hard to find one except the resorts and hotels in Jaipur and Udaipur. But what if your own bungalow is given a palatial feel with a touch of luxury and exuberance ? this is what Shilpi Sonar, founder and creative director, Creations did with her project in Raigarh, Chhattisgarh. Taking cues from the rich cultural history of our country and tying it up perfectly with the interiors of this house which is spread over 10,000 square feet, Shilpi has done a fabulous job.
Sonar tried to polish the idea of her client who wanted the interiors of their house to be Indian and traditional. The entrance of the living room with gold pillars and the marble flooring along wit the intricately carved fireplace looks like a scene right out of a maharaja’s palace. The gold patterned wallpaper and the majestic chandelier add a touch of glamour to the whole place. The royal blue coloured furniture, made using rich velvet fabric along with the high-back teal coloured chairs, add to the aesthetic value of the whole living room.
Right opposite the living room one can not miss out the huge mural of Radha and Krishna in bright hues of red, greens and blues. Along with this is an open seating area with a coffee table, patterned blue chairs and sofas for one to sit and have a peaceful time. Leading on further to the dining area, one is welcomed by the wonderful views of the garden greens. To block out the light when required, the opulent red coloured drapes are made out of a heavy material, maintaining the theme and the visual appeal of the place.
From the rooms to the restrooms, every single corner of the house has its own charm of royalty and luxury. Talking about her vision while doing the interiors of this place, Shilpi says, “Raigarh has forever been known for its coal mine and reserves. Through my designs, I want to create an impeccable niche in the glamorous field of interior design. This bungalow serves that purpose, as the vintage interiors tie it to the deep-rooted and all-encompassing culture of our great country.”
