Ace the minimalistic yet functional look with some help from the interiors of Alila Fort Bishangarh that reinterpret the meaning of living like royalty
Often, we associate the word luxury with OTT, which may or may not involve some sparkling bling. The interiors of Alila Fort Bishangarh however, are a lesson in refined, understated luxury. The thoughtfully placed furniture is all about making the most from least, which is a great idea for adapting in small spaces.
To mimic this look in your house, make note of the generous use of round pillows and cushions propped against sofas, diwans and even chairs. A clever partition provides extra seating space. For a smaller area, think about folding partitions and jali screens, which while sectioning a place don’t block it entirely.
Optimise your windows as well – plan for a cantilevered seating area in the bedroom which can also double up as a comfortable workstation receiving natural light. Don’t forget to glam it up with embroidered cushions.
