“For this Ahmedabad-based villa project, the Client wanted a minimal style in Neutral Shades of greys, brown and whites. They had just moved back to India after living abroad for 7 years. Early on in the discussions, our Principal Architect realized that they needed something special, a design that would intrigue them even after a few years of living there. This meant creating something rich in details, patterns and fabrics. Given all this and the size of the villa we decide to choose a Victorian theme for this dream home of a dream client.

To create this look, we stuck to dark, rich, contrasting colours and bold intricate prints inspired from the historic colonies of the Victorian era. Another element that set the tone for The Victorian Influence, was heavy, plump and overstuffed furniture in deep colours and deeper fabrics like velvet and leather. Ornamentally detailed furniture, rich tapestry and paneled walls covered in Victorian wallpaper or hand-painted art ensured every inch of the villa, right from he master bedrooms to the living rooms felt like pure luxury for the client.” shares Ahmedabad based Design Firm, Space Karma Designs, with the #Housethome Team.
