Project Reveal Part II – The Modern Plantation Home – Private Spaces

Created by Vinithra Amarnathan on October 11, 2020

We hope you enjoyed first part of the modern plantation home reveal and we’re bringing to you today the private bedroom spaces in the home.
Before you walk you up the beautiful glass and wood stairway, lets look at the guest bedroom in the ground level.

Guest Bedroom
Located on the ground level of the home, this bedroom anchors a traditional yet contemporary look and feel. The hero of the space has got to be the wallpapered wall. The floral-motif wallpaper introduces tones of maroons, deep green and beige into the space and that was a jump-off point for the design trajectory too!

The custom cane-mesh & wood bed contributes to that vintage timelessness of the room and is paired with complementary sleek nightstands in a similar demeanor. Accents of brass find their way into the space in the form of the bedside lamps, hardware and curios.

The room has a connected walk-in wardrobe section that has shutters painted in a warm grey-beige & brass antique hardware with a vanity section that stay true to the aura of the room.

First Floor
The first floor of the home anchors the private bedrooms, a family lounge and a compact home office. The original staircase railings were replaced in the home with dark stained wood handrails and clear glass panels for a clean modern vibe. We also incorporated additional storage under the staircase on the ground level to amp up on function. The landing level hosts a composition of 4 oversized organic prints carrying through the hints of soft terra cotta that lend the transition space character.

Home Office
The home office space was created out of a tight nook at the first-floor landing level that didn’t offer any function in the layout initially. We reconceptualized the space as an L-configuration workspace perfect for the couple – what a relief during these work from home times huh!
We furnished this nook with plenty storage in the form of drawers at the bottom, ceiling-height cabinetry and open shelving for bric-a-brac! The bright white cabinets and warm wood shelves make for a neutral palette and have been interspersed with a a grasscloth wallpaper for some texture! A graphic typewriter print, a suspended black metal pendant light and a rich patterned rug the client pre-owned create an impactful vignette of the space as you walk up the stairs! Truly a cozy spot to hunker down and work from home as it becomes the new normal. 😊

Family Lounge

Inviting, comfortable and snug – this family lounge looks into the double-height volume of the home. Positioned between the private bedroom sections, this zone is the family’s sanctuary to unwind!
A compact custom made L-sofa, jute poufs and a contemporary round coffee table make the space high on function and comfort in equal strengths. The large geometric art print in a way inspires the color story of the space in the form of the soft furnishings and the family’s collection of masks and art is collaged together in a gallery wall.

The bold striped custom made square rug fits the space beautifully. The built-in storage on the TV wall was a great way to pack in storage and display books and knick-knacks. One of our favorite elements here is the sharp black lighting and how it brings just the right amount of contrast and modern to the space.

Kid’s Bedroom
‘Pastel Paradise’ – Two words that encapsulate the spirit of the young daughter’s bedroom! We ensured that the design approach dabbled in colour, pattern and texture while also harnessing the capacity to grow with the little one. 😉
We opted for a vibrant sunshine yellow half wall across the room, that instantaneously made the space uber fun! A soft pink colour was used in the wardrobe section of the room and we paired the same with custom oval wooden handles!

Hues like yellow, teal and pink compose the pastel inspired palette and all elements like furniture, soft furnishings and accessories followed suit. The Jenny Lind bed in a dusty rose hue with a vintage world map art print makes for a dainty vignette. We created a compact study niche with a sleek white desk with quirky teal knobs and a dreamy blush chair in the brightly lit nook by the window. Floral grey and white drapes bring in softness and pattern.

Another favorite corner of ours has the custom mint armoire created for all miscellaneous storage needs and this has been tastefully positioned adjacent to the colorful gallery wall of prints that are unique to the child’s interests and hobbies!

Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is a simplistic and modern space in which monochromes with highlights of ochre take the visual lead. We’ve worked towards creating diverse functional zones within the room’s blueprint.
The reading nook at the entrance of the room is complete with a plush neutral wingback chair & a leaning oversized mirror, which amplifies the visual volume of the room.

The 4-poster bed is the pièce de résistance in the space & makes an iconic statement with its black-stained wood and brass inlay detailing. Complementary nightstands create the quintessential composition when paired with the bed. Large fluted wood base table lamps, minimal botanical art prints and a jute rug add the finishing touches to this zone. 😉 The mustard velvet curtains sure contribute to the lavish character to this master suite.

A deep midcentury style desk opposite the bed adds function. The walk-in closet here is an L shaped wardrobe clad in a smoked oak veneer and brass hardware.

Designing the Modern Plantation Home has been such a wholesome experience and we hope you resonate with us through this detailed walkthrough! We were blessed with stellar clients who believed in the vision from the get-go! In times like these, we’ve come to realise that homes are truly our sanctuaries and this home has been a delight to conjure to life!

See you here soon for yet another project reveal! 😊
