Breathe life into your minimal, pared back interiors with accessories in bright colours, just like The Waterfront Granary in Kochi


Who said minimal interiors must be vanilla? The rooms of Waterfront Granary, Kochi will make you rethink your perception of minimal. Located in an old 1877 granary, the retreat has a distinct laid-back feel to it. The furniture in dark wood is beautifully complemented by bright accessories and fresh flowers.

In fact, colour is used unabashedly throughout – from the bright summery yellow on the façade to the pretty Athankudi handmade tiles used as flooring. The flooring plays a key role in dividing areas and demarcating spaces within rooms and public spaces of the hotel. This is something we can adopt in our homes as well. If you have a vast living room, use dual flooring options to break the space down for various uses. The same can be applied in the bedroom too – where the area with the bed has a stone floor while the study has a wood floor.


We love how corners are brought to life with glimpses into the hotel’s history, through black and white photo frames hanging from bare walls for maximum visual effect. To make art the hero of your interiors, keep the furniture to a minimum so that the artwork can shine through.

Use different kinds of floorings to demarcate spaces. Here, the tiles form the corridor while the wooden flooring encompasses the reception desk.
Another way to inject colour in the bedroom is by using colourful flooring. Bring some cohesion by using a single material palette. Image courtesy,
Keep the bedroom as clear as possible – a bed, side tables and simple lounge will do the trick. This imparts a spacious feeling to the room. Prop some bright, embroidered cushions on the bed for a dash of colour.
The best way to keep everything handy right next to your bed is by investing in a small chest of drawers that also doubles up as a side table.
Use framed photographs or even artworks to breathe life into blank walls. Also, you can experiment with stained glass windows to diffuse light streaming in from the windows.
