The 4BHK home in Mumbai designed by Neha Kachhara features an earthy palette that serves to unify the family’s different tastes


Any interior designer will tell you this – your home must reflect your personality, essentially a mix of the things you like. But what do you do when every family member's taste differs drastically? For interior designer Neha Kachhara, the answer lay in unifying the 2,500 sq ft space with an earthy palette and layering it with wooden elements that could be easily switched around for a fresh look. Her first move was to convert the six bedroom apartment into a four bedroom one to allow each member adequate space of their own.


A walk through the house reveals a whole gamut of neutral shades such as browns, beiges and tans. This isn’t just limited to the walls but extends to the furniture as well. Playing around with neutrals is easy. To add colour, you can upholster your furniture a bright shade, introduce a colourful console or even hang up some artwork. You can control how colourful you would like it to be with a simple addition or removal of accessories.


As far as personalising the space goes, Neha has thoughtfully accommodated everyone’s needs – a reading corner for the elderly couple; a walk-in wardrobe combined with a vanity and pastel hued bedroom for the daughter and a grey and black den, complete with projector and recliners for the movie aficionado son.


While we have no issues following rules, sometimes breaking them leads to better results. So, don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles in your house when decorating, the results might just surprise you.

The neutral shades are offset by a bright orange console and striking artworks in the dining room. We love the smoked glass effect on the chandelier suspended above the dining table.

A vintage like vanity area was specially created for the daughter who visits often. Wallpaper covers the entire ceiling of this space while blinds allow control over the amount of sunlight streaming in. Notice how the ornate mirror and faucet match each other in terms of design and colour.

Instead of a single, continuous sitting area, Neha has broken down the hall into two distinct spaces, separated by a bright blue bench and whimsical artefact. To counter the effect of low ceilings, the curtain rods are placed higher up on the wall.

Don’t let corners get in the way of your decorations. To spruce up a corner, you can place an eccentric console and top it with a vase of fresh flowers and travel finds. You could also place a large framed mirror and make it double up as a dressing area.
The colours in the master bathroom match those used in the bathroom. The shower cubicle also serves as a division of the wet and dry areas in this space.
The original six bedroom apartment was converted to a four bedroom apartment, which provided Neha enough space to accommodate individual needs, for instance, this walk in vanity cum wardrobe for the daughter. We’re loving the whimsical touch brought in by the Louis XV-like commode.
As the couple preferred marble flooring, Neha did away with the panelled wood floors seen throughout the house. A carved-out column serves as a bookshelf while a small reading corner has been carved out by placing a warm rug and chair. Remember, statement pieces can help elevate the look of any room in an instant.

The den and combined son’s bedroom are done in more sombre shades of grey and white. The shuttered wardrobe door stands out against the relatively simple décor of the space. A potted plant and artwork on the study desk add a pop of colour in this space.
