Supreme Luxury Embracing Natural Textures


The clients wanted a quiet retreat, and the designers, Azure Interiors’, rooted the aesthetics in nature while maintaining a sophisticated edge to create a relaxing atmosphere.

Farmhouse interiors dotted with showstopper features, yet conceived to fade into the surroundings, Azure Interiors’ latest project demonstrates how a holiday home can be both a luxurious getaway and a natural retreat. Unique design features, like an over-the-top quirky wallpaper, waterfall surface dining table, and specially designed accessories and artefacts, grab attention, even as muted organic elements gently direct your eyes to the natural setting.

Located in Nakati village in Chhattisgarh’s hinterland, the home stays true to its native habitat by using subdued palettes, exotic natural stones, wood and natural shapes. Organic forms, shapes and earthy tones further add a delightful naturalness. The home presents a picturesque view amid a 30,000 sqft lush, carefully manicured and landscaped lawn. The approach is focused on keeping the common areas connected to offer flexible spatial configurations so that the rooms can operate independently or together to suit the occasion.

An exotic, colourful floral wallpaper featuring a quirky, suited monkey by Raseel Gujral is the eye-catching element of the living room done up in duck egg blue walls. Victorianstyle mouldings adds elegant details. The furniture is mainly leather, exuding a relaxed and sophisticated vibe. The centre table is made of a wooden log, and the ceiling has been kept a little muted, but with a highlight of black with surface lights, to give the space a party vibe. The living room is connected to the lawn and is designed to host bigger gatherings.

The family wanted to use the room as a home theatre as well. So the flooring is covered in acoustic wood, and the walls also have wooden panelling. The den or the informal living room is steeped in shades of grey, exhibiting a chic neutral vibe. A towering shadowbox shelving unit forms a gorgeous background. An array of terracotta artefacts in many shapes, specially designed and made by a local artisan, add a charming look.

The rough brown Kota stone flooring accented with a highlighter in a patina finish and interlaid with wooden tiles further sets a muted backdrop. The sloped ceiling has been done up by using two materials – wood as a highlighter element and the rest rendered as a textured surface— the neutral atmosphere bristles with a raw edge. As a result, the eye is guided towards the verdant views out of the large windows. They beautifully frame the vibrant outdoors.

Mounted above the ground level, the swimming pool is framed by river-washed black granite. The dining room makes a dramatic statement with a table that features a sculptural waterfall countertop. The stone top cascades toward the floor at thirty degrees, looking like a riverbed. On the walls, the same texture and finish continues. The green Indian stone in the bar brings a charming jade hue. All the shelves are made out of this marble, and so is the counter.

Moreover distressed mirrors and clear mirrors act as bling elements. The grey theme continues in the kitchen, though the black Nolte kitchen with silver edging offering an elegant contrast with its
modern look. The master bedroom is done up in muted shades of grey and black with a hint of gold. The gabled ceiling imparts depth to the interiors. The bed and the side table are made of leather. A beautiful locally handcrafted macramé hangs on the bed’s back wall.

The flooring is wooden, and a charming wooden plank with raw edges has been placed as a sliding door between the bedroom and the dressing area. The bathroom is entirely clad in handmade black tiles evoking a clean and elegant look. The highlight of the guest bedroom is the visual contrast between finished and unfinished walls by juxtaposing wooden panelling painted in bottle green and exposed bricks. The herringbone flooring beautifully complements the setting.

The bed is clad in light beige leather, and the metal side tables are procured from the local market. The powder room is designed to exude a serene and refreshing vibe with a green palette since it’s
the only space in the home from where a view of the greenery is unavailable. A tropical motif wallpaper from the Nilaya collection of Good Earth and a glossy green herringbone dado inspire a rainforest setting. The washbasin and the counter/ vanity are in natural wood keeping with the overall materiality of the farmhouse.

Supreme luxury embraces natural textures and materials to touch the senses gently in this modern farmhouse enabling complete relaxation and rejuvenation of the body and the mind.
