Interior Design - Simplistic & Stunning

Vistaar Associates are an architecture & interior design firm, with a vision of improving the quality of life through influencing our everyday surroundings.

Shewta is an architect based in Hyderabad, with an eye for uniqueness. Her designs strive to achieve balance, functionality, simplicity and yet are visually stimulating.

The home featured here is redesigned by Vistaar Associates for a young, fun loving, outgoing couple and their 2 kids. Keeping this in mind, the design included separate formal spaces for entertaining that were minimal yet functional enough to be kept clean at all times.

The bar & dining area. Check out the ceiling... The home also has a cozy living area where the whole family could just lounge around. You’ve got to have a look at the partitions in the living room. Here the idea was to ensure that the glass is not totally see through. Hence textured glass was used with fabric !! What a great idea??!! The living room continues the same sea blue dreamy feel…. The dark wood is the unifying theme here… Oh.. Dont miss the blinds!

For this project they reused and recycled and made best use of everything they could.

The old cabinets, old doors got a change of skin. Old furniture got a facelift and infact most of the furniture like centre tables, side tables etc in the formal drawing room were made from ply from old cabinet shutters, etc. Now isn’t that functionality!! Here is a picture of the renovated main door.

In some cases, the central portion was cut open and glass or fabric added. Check out the wardrobe in the master bedroom, a deep red woven bannana fibre is used here. Look at the before and after pictures… they are absolutely stunning. As for me… the functionality & colours truly inspired me… what about you??

  5. The living room area is lovely - the use of the colored cushions and the light sofas play so well with the apparent light in the room - such a nice, airy, bright and cheerful feeling! And the bar! I love the woodwork, what a fabulous idea. Vistaar's done a great job, I especially like that there's nothing too fancy or breakable - that's always a bit of a tension in a house with kids. Really smart and well thought out.
