Turn your home into a tropical oasis with cues from the interiors of Jalakara, Havelock Island
Located on Andaman and Nicobar’s most popular island, Jalakara is situated on a lush hillside and offers an ideal getaway spot for R&R.
Choose a natural material palette – wood or wooden tiles for flooring, wood and wicker for the doors and, as seen in the Sky Room, a rocking chair. Floor to ceiling windows lend a sense of spaciousness, while blue and green curtains make an ideal choice.
If you like bolder colours, opt for indigos, pinks and tropical patterns to enliven spaces. Carve out mini-windows high above the bed for natural light to filter in, brightening the room. Plan a wall with frames of floral or avian imagery to complete the look.
Raw concrete, favoured in the Sunset Suites, bounces off light and lends a tranquil ambience. Achieve a good contrast by adding copious amounts of striking and colourful fabrics.
A deep blue palette, white accessories, wood-panelled ceilings and flooring are a sight for sore eyes. Canvas or paper lights, like the ones used in the Jalakara Suite, make ideal pendant lamps. If you want to recreate the idyllic vacation vibe, a hammock will be good investment.
