When Tradition Meets Design – Marathi Puneri Wada

The first time I saw my 3-BHK flat, I knew that I want to utilize its spacious appeal to the maximum. My husband and in-laws hail from a small town Satara and owned a conventional “Waadaa” there. I wanted to recreate the charm of traditional waadaa for my family. I was looking out for a passionate, creative and easy on my pocket kind of a decorator. Sonia was an obvious choice, considering her “out of the box” designs and unending craving for natural colors and natural finish to anything she creates. We worked a lot together as most of our choices matched – may it be the idea of using “Khann” for curtains or decorating the place with natural rosewood furniture! My idea of getting a photo shoot done with my family in one of the real wadaas in Pune in traditional Maharashtrian attire was further enhanced through beautiful wooden frames with intricate carvings for the photos. She believes in balancing aesthetics with functionality, I can surely say that after staying there for 6 months. I think that makes her stand out from the typical commercial interior designers. She truly transformed my lifeless flat into a beautiful, lively HOME!
