Jaipur’s newest boutique destination has a number of décor elements that we would like to borrow for our home

 

The interiors of 28 Kothi make for some serious décor note-taking. Jaali windows, tropical-themed wall size murals, comfortable day beds, tea light holders extending out of the tail of painted parrots, old school cane furniture- our list of favourite things runs over.  

 

Set up by Siddharth Kasliwal, son of late jeweller Munnu Kasliwal, in collaboration with restaurateur Abhishek Honawar, 28 Kothi is Jaipur’s newest boutique hotel destination.   The hotel has been designed by French architect Georges Floret, while Nur Kaoukji, creative director of lifestyle brand Ecru has styled the interiors. The five suites in the hotel have each been named after a precious stone. These are Spinel, Moonstone, Peridot, Sapphire and Topaz. The colour palette has been kept to sparse whites with the occasional burst of colour and texture.

 

Kaoukji says the abundance of colour in Jaipur made them want to keep the interiors as meditative as possible. Vibrant cushions, handcrafted light chandeliers, colourful dhurries and dull brass pieces add visual drama.

 

Large silver baubles, originally used in havelis to ward off witches, have been used as props in the passage. The hand-painted tropical mural is a good reference for recreating a statement wall in your own home, as is the jaali work done in the windows of the bathroom. To recreate 28 Kothi’s neutral colour palette in your home, you can accessorise with soft furnishings in bright pops of colour.

The reception serves as a lounge area for guests.
