A Teacher’s Philosophy & Dancers’ Delight

Maithily Bhupatkar

If you are looking to combine aesthetics with everyday functionality, then Sonia is the best consultant to seek. I’ve always yearned for a space that is colourful, cultural and representative of the person I am. Now that is easy. What is challenging is keeping it minimal and utilitarian within this aesthetic structure. I’ve received the best ideas from her – whether it was the use of ghungroos for drawer handles or the use of double switches by the bedside, her candid guidance was refreshing. Her process reflects her various travels and experience of other cultures and spaces. Her individual interest in fine art also adds to her involvement in the project. She doesn’t shy away from sharing her opinion nor is she overbearing with her choices. She truly loves her work, therefore the spaces she creates, in most certainty, will always be loved.

GEOMETRY OF A CONTEMPORARY HOME

Every color has a certain impact on a décor. It’s simply a matter of style and looks. A color such as the best of  yellow, for example, is bright and eye-catching and it would be a cheerful addition to a space such as the living room. In this home, a  yellow couch is the centerpiece of the room. The question that remains in a contemporary interior design is “how will you decorate the space around it?” Simple with Greys & Whites!

 

Well, the options aren’t numerous. One idea we used were prints and patterns on the wall to integrate the yellow sofa into the living room without making it seem out of place. The accent pillows are quirky and fun and they combine well with the yellow on the sofa.

We’ve said this numerous times: yellow and gray are two colors that work beautifully together. They compliment each other nicely. One is fun and vibrant and the other one is dark and neutral. Together they create the perfect balance.

What we enjoy most about this seating area is the way the colors on the abstract wall frames reiterate throughout the space in various forms and blends in nicely.

If you prefer a décor that’s warm, welcoming and elegant without standing out in a bright or opulent way, this tone of yellow seems like a perfect choice, especially in combination with the golden wood finish and the surrounding neutrals. After all that’s a key to contemporary interior design!

But not all yellows have to be that bright and flashy. Mellow tones like greys can be very beautiful as well and they combine well with light wooden surfaces and with other soft colors. A sofa such as this one can be the unexpected touch of color in a neutral décor.yello
