Heralding the era where maharajas and sultans ruled all over the subcontinent, designer Shilpi Sonar, Founder and Creative Director of Creations, has beautifully crafted the interiors of this residential bungalow. Spread over a sprawling 10000 square feet, this bungalow is located in the city of Raigarh.

A direct distinction is made between the foyer and living area when one enters the house. Regal and imposing gold pillars make up the entrance of the living room, subtly demarcating the public and private areas. The entrance leads directly to the living room, which has gorgeous marble flooring, an intricately carved fireplace, gold patterned wallpaper, and a stunning chandelier that illuminates the room. Staying true to the traditional elements of Indian palaces, the furniture used is enveloped in rich royal blue colors, and comprises the use of velvet fabric. Magnificent chairs flank the fireplace with a high back and are in trending teal color, tying the room together.

On the other side of the living room, a mural of Radha and Krishna, in bright hues of reds, blues, and greens can be seen. Adjacent to the mural is another sitting area, which is more widespread & open. Coffee tables made of onyx, patterned blue chairs and sofas in neutral colors amplify the overall look and feel of the room. Warm white cove lighting makes the living room feel more welcoming. The living room leads to the dining area, which has a large dining table and has a beautiful view of the garden greens. The drapes are in opulent red, made of a heavy material that does a fabulous job of blocking the light out. 

The project mixes the elements of luxury and accomplishing a simplistic yet intricate design. A thought-provoking color scheme of gold, royal red, blue, and green have been used to highlight the elegance and charm of the house. Every room has a distinct theme and motif, just like palaces, that fits the nature of the rooms. Even the restrooms have not been overlooked – staying true to the theme of royalty, marble is used on the walls and the vanity is made up of an awe-inspiring carved gold detailing

Each bedroom has its own unique identity. While one of the rooms has hints of mauve and beige with a lit headboard, the other room has vintage pastel blue armchairs, patterned gold wallpaper, and a hand-carved ceiling. Mixing royal elements with that of the needs of the 21st century, all the rooms have a TV mounted on the wall. 

All the elements are hand-woven and handpicked starting from the floor to the walls, and even the linens. The design team immaculate designs the bungalow and design it as a palace, giving a personal statement to the owner’s with luxurious interiors.
