If mix and match makes your heart sing, then the interiors of Candolim Song are just what you need
There isn’t one clear pattern that emerges in the interiors of this restored 100-year-old Portuguese villa and perhaps that’s what gives it the homely feeling. It’s all about going by ear and piling together mix and match furniture – and the best part is that all of it doesn’t have to follow a clear-cut aesthetic or colour scheme.
We love that the stone interiors are softened with the deft use of wood. Comfortable, plush seating options dot passageways like pitstops, the common area and even the bedrooms.
To break the monotony of white, even in your own apartment, you can try pairing it with furniture in bright upholstery, occasionally punctuating the landscape with antique, or even oxidized brass pieces.
Borrow a few ideas for your own bathroom from the one at Candolim Song. Wooden highlights bring in some old-world glamour while the wet and dry spaces are well demarcated. Replace your glass shower cubicle with a jali divider as a stand out feature.
This alfresco seating alcove provides guests a secluded spot to reconnect with nature and their surroundings.
Pendant lamps suspended over the counter act as spotlights to highlight certain pieces. Place your fresh greens here to inject an instant pop of colour.
Take a leaf from the Candolim Song’s outdoor seating arrangement to earn some brownie points on yours. Use a large mesh cloth to create a canopy that diffuses harsh sunlight.
