The Mysa Home: An expression of Hygge and Elegance


A Scandinavian-inspired apartment by Quirk Studio strung together by a neat interplay of minimalism, functionality, and a sense of well-being to create an oasis.

Burrowed in the upscale coastal suburb of Bandra, Mumbai, The Mysa Home is a young family’s haven in the heart of the beaming cosmopolitan city. Mysa (MEEsah) in the Swedish language
hints at comfort and the enveloping feeling of cosiness. This home’s design ethos focus on creating an environment that emphasizes on the enjoyment of space with the entirety of one’s senses, consciously immersing them in the indulgence of fleeting moments.

The quaint, sea-facing apartment echoes the tranquillity of its surroundings and almost seems to beckon the quiet vastness and serenity through the thresholds of the abode. Large floorto-ceiling fenestrations are reminiscent of the yesteryear bombay apartments; they awash the interior spaces in natural light that transforms through the length of the day. The play of daylight in this home figuratively hints at the vision of pervasive warmth that embraces the residence.

As a young couple who have embarked on the journey of owning and inhabiting their first home, the brief from the client places crucial importance upon creating a dwelling which exudes familial warmth, wrapping them in a series of spaces to rest, convene and contemplate. In devotion to the maxim of ‘less is more’, the home’s DNA is intended to be an ensemble of bright, capacious, and timeless spaces that are interwoven with minimalism.

The coherence of the brief and a shared tethered vision chisel to life the design identity adopted in this home. Nordic and Scandinavian influences in which the residence is immersed result from the clear manifestation of the client’s brief, which in turn moulds the apartment’s aura. At the Mysa Home, simplicity is the chosen medium of expression of Hygge (to be laced with a feeling of contentment and well-being), which frontlines the focal design resolution. The intended curation of the design elements, a soothing colour palette, and tactile textures coupled with sleek furniture, luminaires, and pieces of art brings the conceptual impetus of the home to the forefront. Every object in the residence introduces a nuanced character to the space, inducing conversations around the level of detail-orientation. The home’s persona pays homage to the inhabitant family’s aspiration to live surrounded by what essentially matters the most to them. Warm tones of wood, neutral hues that bathe upholstered surfaces, monochromes, metallic touches, and hints of natural greenery converge to create the presiding elements of the material palette at The Mysa Home.

The apartment unfurls into an open-plan living cum dining area that occupies the heart of the layout. Laden in neutral hues, the living and dining areas have been earmarked by a two-tone, colour-blocked half wall that interjects the space with visual warmth. Remindful of a snug cottage in the Swedish landscape, the space has been dotted with pattern-play via art, muted upholstery, and a dash of powder blue in the console that is bookended by minimalist prints. The restrained yet impactful choice of furniture assists in the tactful demarcation of fluid zones, steering clear of the need for physical barriers.

Melding seamlessly with the living section, the dining area is anchored by a solid wood dining table and spindled bench that is coupled with modern upholstered chairs; the grains of the wood further exaggerate the brilliant craftsmanship of the pieces and emanate a welcoming sentiment for the family to dine and converse. This nook is accented by an amber and grey cluster globe pendant light and a warm blue credenza, which boasts geometricity with its fluted shutters: the rustic art prints and an assortment of bric-a-brac pepper the space to create a greeting vignette.

Stitched into the layout using a partition system composed of clear glass and black metal, the kitchen becomes a homogenous part of the spatial layout. Daylight streams across glazed surfaces and
illuminates the galley kitchen, further elevating the all-white pristine interior. The hardware-less cabinetry amplifies the expanse, allowing it to retain its clutter-free visual palette. Vertically-stacked, white subway backsplash tiles accentuate the volume of the compact yet pragmatic kitchen.

A connective passage flanked towards the private zone of the home prologues the ensuite bedrooms. Keeping in line with the overruling identity of the abode, the passageway is punctuated with Ash woodhued doors and a collage of water colour pastel geometric art. The bedroom suites in The Mysa Home are natural extensions of the communal spaces and nod to the overarching pared-down aesthetic.

The Mysa Home is a robust family home that is helmed by a quiet resonance for the simple elementality. As an embodiment of Nordic elegance, this home has been designed with gusto while ensuring that it harnesses the ability to evolve with the needs of its end-users. It brings to light a meticulous exercise in place-making, where the ideal home harmonizes with the godly contentment of the family that has made it their own.
