Holding on to its old-world charm, 47 Jobner Bagh shows us how to marry vintage elements with elegant and simple design
It’s the charming interiors of 47 Jobner Bagh that really caught our attention. The predominantly white colour palette is brought to life with traditional furniture, dark wood and carved detailing that is softened with curved elements, warm lighting and flowy window furnishings.
The key to this look is to bring in only a few visually heavy, antique and vintage pieces and pair them with minimal furnishings in soft, muted colours. The bedrooms feature antique desks and chairs, traditional bedside tables and Colonial-style dressers set against creamy white walls. Take a cue and mix these bulky pieces with streamlined ones like the simple, low bed.
Add some vintage appeal to your home with a gallery wall of framed old photographs in black and white and sepia tones. You can also use distressed furniture in warm or muted colours like the olive-green cupboard and repurposed pieces like old doors fashioned as a tall headboard. Polished concrete flooring and white walls form the perfect canvas for this look.
You don’t always need to have matching sets. Here, minimal wrought iron chairs have been paired with a small, ornate table with carved detailing and turned legs. A Colonial-inspired writing desk and traditional chair work well against sleek French doors.
Built-in units can be made to stand out with little tweaks and tricks – like giving the doors an unusual shape that catches the eye. As for recessed alcoves, convert them into gallery walls and highlight the space with mood lighting.
Get creative with your headboards – this room features old doors that have been repurposed as one. It adds drama to the simple bed frame and draws the eye upward. The arched, stained glass window above the French doors infuses the space with splashes of colour
A tall, mirrored headboard adds a luxurious touch to the predominantly white bedroom. The dark wood bedside tables display traditional styles but are completely different, creating a visually interesting effect.
The simple concrete flooring, bare walls and white canvas provide a perfect backdrop for details like the antique-style, double curtain rods for layered window drapes. The Colonial dressing table adds a romantic touch to the room.
The tadelakt walls and counter lend a rustic vibe to the bathroom while the wood frame adds warmth to the grey palette. A wonderful addition are the drop lights above the mirror – they have chosen shapes that are similar but not identical.
Create a rustic reading corner in your bedroom with a chair and traditional armoire with elegant white walls. Add a throw pillow with subtle floral prints or bird motifs to enhance the décor.
