Project Reveal – Modern Colorful Apartment – Part I

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on July 7, 2019

A home that’s not afraid of color! Let me rewind back to September of 2018 which is when I first met the clients for this home….It was a long detailed meeting and I knew I was with people who had a keen sense of aesthetic and were invested in their home and the design process. Weeks went by and almost a couple months later we signed up to get started. We had our first design chat and when my client said ‘I want a pink kitchen’…..I part laughed and part squirmed! And then I thought to myself….how often do you... Read more

The coming together of a global eclectic living space!

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on May 3, 2019

I love it when people who move half way around the world for a relatively short time still want to work towards creating a home that’s reflective of them and one that feels welcoming. When I met our clients, a young family from Minneapolis on an assignment to Bangalore, their ask was simple....we want it to feel like home! And thats just what we did! We used the already lovely pieces they had and their clear sense of style that was about an eclectic collected look, bold color and clean lines to put together a space that was now elevated...

From boring basement to a Mancave!

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on April 24, 2019

Cocktails, a game on the television and the company of friends and family. Doesn’t this make for a great mental visual at the end of a long day? With this space, the family wanted to create an entertainment den which could also flexibly double up as a guest room if need be. The tight area of less than 500 sqft posed as a challenge, but also was a great impetus towards conjuring to life a dark, moody but definitely not dingy space! This room was conceptualized as the laid-back section of the home where the clients could lounge, entertain and... Read more

Project Reveal – Casa Bonita – A Spanish inspired apartment in Bangalore!

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on March 8, 2019

Imagine walking in to a first time site and being struck by the golden yellows of the walls, the white arches and the azul of the pool tiles…a sliver of Spain and Portugal and Goa all blended together and tucked away in Bangalore! And add to that my clients a young couple with a Mangalorean heritage and love for all things colonial, rich and character led. We knew this home had to speak to old world charm and still bring in the new! I love staying true to the architectural details of a home and that’s exactly what we did... Read more

Project Reveal – Modern Boho Loft Part II – Upper Level

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on January 23, 2019

If you’ll saw the first part of this home that we revealed before (click here to see), and thought it to be a black and white or neutral home all through, the upper level will surprise you with its bursts of color in the family room, the richly layered master bedroom and the subtle yet beautiful guest room! Each of these spaces has their own character and packs in so much detail but fits right in as part of the same home! Guest Bedroom As you enter the apartment in the lower level right after the entryway is the guest... Read more

Project Reveal – Modern Boho Loft – Living Area

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on January 9, 2019

A little modern, a little boho, a little organic and very chic ☺ After a bunch of remodels in the past two years, I was ready for a blank slate to work on and this modern boho loft was just the perfect project! It was bright, with ample natural light, a great open floor plan and a modern clean structure to work with! Add to that a very discerning client who was willing to take design risks! Ok I got lucky ☺…but it was a lot of hard work, I kid you not! But so so worth it! I am... Read more

I don't know about you, but I love this time of the year and all the holiday and christmas feels :) And I'm sure we all love to bring in hints of the holidays with our decor!

The making of a home out west – My first full scale outstation project!

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on October 25, 2018

We started somewhere in April with a very aggressive move in date of May 27th! I shuddered, then took a leap of faith….and jumped right in! Did we make it on May 27th? No. Of course not! Did we build a beautiful home? Yes, of course ☺ I wondered if I should take the usual route of blogging in detail about my projects like I have in the past or take a simpler crisper route of sharing new pictures to the portfolio! But hell…what about the stories! And the details and the people and the fun of the process! So... Read more
