The 2000 sq. ft. Jardin Home is designed by Quirk Studio in the lush Juhu suburb of Mumbai. Disha Bhavsar and Shivani Ajmera, the co-founders of Quirk Studio, have designed this minimalistic, calm, and modern abode as per the client’s brief and requirements. Jardin Home is built for the client’s son, a bachelor, reflecting his personality and turning into a warm retreat as and when the family visits.
The notion behind The Jardin Home was to create a contemporary house that reflects the thinking of a young working professional. Adopting a nature-inspired design approach, shades of blue and green have been incorporated into the spaces. The interiors are a blend of neutral and monochromatic palettes responsible for yielding a sense of serenity. A series of large casement windows have been installed throughout the house allowing ample natural light inside.
The house opens into a spacious living room with an adjoining dining area. An abstract rug is paired with a grey sofa that radiates a soft luxe feel. The teal blue upholstered armchair brings a sense of serenity while creating an exciting visual contrast in sync with the muted interiors. Accent elements like a coffee table from Gulmohar lane and opulent furniture pieces made out of metal, marble, and wood create an interesting interplay of textures, adding to the overall drama and vibe of the space. The big ornate chandelier in aqua and gold color palette is the highlight of the dining area. The floral wall-art comprising botanical prints and customized sideboard adds to the liveliness of the area.
The Jardin Home (French for Garden), imparts an experience of cohesive, dynamic, and regal spaces that deepen a connection with nature.
Vaastu Compliance in planning is one of the important principles integrated into the design. In compliance with this, one of the facades is paneled with mirrors with the addition of plants to endow calmness. Casual and comfortable sections manifest a contemporary lifestyle to make the place more like a bachelor’s pad. The kitchen is seamlessly connected with the dining and living area by a sliding door maintaining continuity in the design. Its simplistic design features a back-painted glass with rose gold cabinet handles. The modular design maximizes the storage space and increases the functionality inside the kitchen.
The merge of two rooms has formed an expansive master suite to create a modern and cozy space with its plush grey interiors. With an intention to create a clutter-free design, the walk-in wardrobe is kept hidden within a lime plaster finish wall paneling. The diagonal oak flooring amplifies the casual environment and exudes warmth to the space. The parent’s bedroom, in contrast to the master suite, is more gracious and charming, as driven by the brief. The bright interiors match the choice of furniture and décor inside the room. The paneling behind the bed offsets the white rattan furniture. Topped off with oak flooring, the room is made comfortable and restful for the parents who visit occasionally. The guest room with its subtle interiors houses repurposed interiors paired with neutral tones. Cherry blossom wallpaper in hues of grey and white adds to the nature-based theme.
The house resonates with the young professional and through its aesthetic value, authenticity, and functionality of the design. The house resonates with the young professional and through its aesthetic value, authenticity, and functionality of the design.
