Saldhana Vilas | Temple town

Biltrax Media Jun 10, 2024 0

Showcasing a beautiful amalgamation of Indian aesthetics with a modern touch, Saldhana Vilas in Bengaluru is a haven for a family where three generations seamlessly co-exist. Spread across 2000 SqFt, the house encapsulates the essence of Indian arts and crafts in a contemporary setting. The client wanted to create a home that could accommodate all the family heirlooms they had inherited and yet create a space that was well-suited for their family of four. Seamlessly blending traditionalism, modernity, and sophistication, the house reflects Temple Town’s philosophy of sustainability.

An old Kerala door repurposed as the main door welcomes you into the house with a typically Goan blue and white nameplate specially customized for the family. The entry foyer exudes colonial charm with a teak wood console mirror and a stone lamp. The foyer leads to the living room which is a mix of furniture that was custom made at Temple Town to go with the inherited pieces. A jewel-toned palette adds brightness to the room which is a fascinating blend of the old and new. The wooden wicker chairs are an interesting contrast to the green contemporary sofa.

The heirloom pieces strewn around the space make it an inviting living area that leads to the dining space. A classic six-seater dining table with a collection of old urns on one side and a custom-made chandelier make this room an interesting visual cocktail. The wall is adorned with old and new plates sourced from Good Earth’s Thierry journo collection. What steals the spotlight in the dining and drawing area are the two old pillars reminiscent of vintage Kerala homes. 

The dining room has an adjoining balcony that doubles up as a cozy yet classic bar. The Athangudi tiles from Bharat tiles showcase the artisanal integrity of the house. To the left is the mother’s room which has a beautiful colonial bed with antique tiles, a muted palette of browns and greens, and stunning watercolor paintings of Kochi reminiscent of her hometown.

To the right is the master bedroom with a cane bed and the wall above is dotted with soothing artwork. The arched white wardrobe provides plenty of storage and yet keeps the space light and spacious. A collection of custom-made cushions dresses up the bed. 

If there was ever an ultimate summer comfort station in the house, it would be a lacquered classic green kitchen, replete with all modern amenities and fittings discreetly hiding all the appliances needed for Indian cooking.

The youngest members of the family, the two boys are given one of the most fascinating spaces. The bunk bed with plenty of storage on the sides is a lesson in smart living even as the beautiful wallpaper from Kalkaari Haath and an all-white color scheme is the perfect infused cheer into the space.

This residence resonated with our design philosophy which revolves around creating timeless spaces that have a soul beyond fashionable seasons. The family wanted the best of both worlds and that gave us the liberty to infuse every room with a distinct touch. Embracing the art of experimentation, we incorporated European furniture styles with an indigenous touch. What helped was the client’s great eye for design and full faith in us.
