A monochrome home décor

 

Architect Jason Wadhwani's home eschews colour for a monochrome, understated feel

Architect Jason Wadhwani’s 850 sq ft 2 BHK apartment in Mumbai  presented him with a dilemma not unlike that faced by most designers when doing up their own homes, namely – how do I make my home stand out?

“We see so much in the market, and there’s this feeling of wanting to incorporate everything in our personal space. This is where the need for balance becomes key,” he says.

Strikingly simple yet functional – this was the look Jason was looking to bring into his own home. He had been living in the apartment for six years before he decided it needed a change. “My father had originally designed the house and the style was true to that time, with lots of marble and carved furniture that was just not my style. I decided I needed the apartment to reflect “me” after having lived with this look for so many years,” he smiles.

Jason retained the marble flooring from the original design. In the living room, he covered the flooring with engineered wood. Straight lines dominate, with an emphasis on a monochrome theme in this Mumbai apartment. Since the colour palette throughout is predominantly black, white and grey, Jason added a graphic element in the form of a chevron rug from Jaipur Rugs to make the décor pop. In the dining space adjoining the couch in the living room, the deep orange chairs offset the monochrome upholstery.

Most of the furniture in the apartment was customised, including the couch, the mirrored side tables and the clear glass centre table. The pouffes in the living room were brought in from China. One corner in the living room displays a wall panel with a Japanese themed wallpaper, which opens out to reveal a cleverly planned bar. There are several of such expertly planned niches throughout the apartment. In the bathroom, Jason has concealed the unsightly looking geyser behind a panel on the ceiling. In the master bedroom, a customised tufted headboard makes space for a switch panel on the wall.

Jason describes his own style as contemporary and eclectic. “I don’t like to limit myself to just one design style. That feels too restrictive,” he signs off.
