This Ahmedabad bungalow is a great example of a minimal yet warm abode

  • July 28, 2022

When Dhara Naik Pandya, founder of Ahmedabad-based interior design and architecture firm DNP Design Studio, wanted to renovate her two storied bungalow, she knew there was only one person who could do it justice to it — she, herself. 

Dhara and her husband desired a modern and minimal home, which felt open and uncluttered. The 2,000-square-feet bungalow is for three generations—Dhara Naik Pandya and her husband, their two young daughters and Dhara’s father-in-law. The bungalow comprises three bedrooms and a study, besides living and dining areas, a kitchen, and a balcony. Each piece of furniture in the home has been customised with materials and finishes that create a harmonious look in each room. Pandya kept the furnishings and accessories minimal to make the space feel quiet and serene. Clean lines and a muted colour scheme define this home that’s tastefully elegant, welcoming and practical.

The bungalow’s interiors are evocative of Scandinavian design. The home showcases a subdued colour palette, playing primarily with shades of grey. “We call our home the grey house because of its colour palette. My husband and I always wanted a very modern yet minimal home. We were very sure on using just three materials in the entire house—ash wood, concrete and metal. We didn’t want our house’s design aesthetic to be too loud in terms of colour and material palette. The only space I have used colour was in our daughters’ bedroom. They are very young and they wanted their room to be colourful and fun. Even in their bedroom, I did manage to use a shade of grey in combination with the vibrant pink,” mentions Dhara Naik Pandya, principal architect, DNP Design Studio.

9 designer-approved outdoor furniture finds

  • July 20, 2022

In BOH’s new series On Trend, we’re asking designers to share their favorite of-the-moment finds.

’Tis the season for alfresco living, and lounging on a sophisticated piece of performance furniture is the best way to soak up the sun. “We find our clients desire outdoor-friendly pieces that don’t read or feel blatantly outdoorsy,” says designer Natasha Baradaran. “As trends have been steadily moving toward indoor-outdoor living over the last decade, [which was only] accelerated by the pandemic, it makes sense that modern outdoor designs would start changing, too.”

Inspired, we asked Baradaran and designers Mary Maydan and Sergio Mercado to share their favorite all-weather finds and the best ways to style them.

Baradaran isn’t afraid to mix aesthetics in a project. Drawing inspiration from her multicultural background, the Los Angeles designer effortlessly employs bold patterns and contemporary furnishings alongside soothing earth tones and touchable textiles to foster warm and welcoming interiors that exude elegance.

“This boucle fabric is from my own textile line. The inspiration for this fabric was a cashmere boucle from Italy that I have always loved. More and more, we have clients who are interested in fabrics that are super soft and durable at the same time. It was my intention to create something that our clients could not tell was an outdoor fabric.”

“I love how outdoor furniture, especially from Italy, is becoming more creative in their materiality. While there are those who still love their clean-looking teak, I love how manufacturers like Vetro Giardini are transforming outdoor pieces to look more like a sculpture.”

At Milan Design Week, post-pandemic home design trends reflect a need for more fluidity and nature

  • June 26, 2022

Written by Marianna Cerini, CNN

After a year off due to the pandemic and a scaled-down iteration in September 2021, Milan’s Salone del Mobile — the international design fair that’s been held annually since 1961 — was back in full force last week. Beyond the trade show itself, which was packed with household names in the world of interiors, the Fuorisalone saw young creatives and smaller brands take over galleries, abandoned spaces and art hubs across the city with shows and installations, proposing new ideas for what our homes of tomorrow might look like.

From sustainability to boundary-pushing designs and an emphasis on craft, here are some of the highlights and takeaways from the event.

Bringing the outdoors indoors

Perhaps in response to the time spent indoors over the past two years, nature and organic materials underpinned many of Milan Design Week’s most interesting works. In the Brera district, Brooklyn-based Calico Wallpaper collaborated with international interior design studio AB Concept to showcase a Japanese Alps-inspired wallpaper in collaboration with interior design studio AB Concept that aimed to recreate an immersive forest experience, while in the 5 Vie area Berlin-based all-female collective Matter of Course debuted a series of home furnishings in wood, clay, and water.

At Alcova, an itinerant exhibition that took over the derelict Centro Ospedaliero Militare di Baggio, natural stone brand SolidNature collaborated with Dutch designer Sabine Marcelis and architectural studio OMA to rethink home furniture as monolithic slabs of onyx and marble, creating a monumental bathroom, a multi-functional rotating cabinet, and an imposing (though possibly not very comfortable) bed.
