Parneeti’s terrace is for laid back lounging and cheery conversations. Colourful, quirky cushions and interesting centre tables make for a unique setting. Simple home with bursts of colour is what Parineeti wished for, her interior designer Shabnam Gupta, from The Orange Lane gave her just that.
Shabnam’s Tip, “The table can be lit with kerosene lanterns. Decorate with fairy lights, you can use them on the trees, pergola, etc. Rustic decors usually suit outdoor events really well and they can turn out really great if you pay attention to details. A simple wooden table, some miss-matched chairs and a table runner are enough to create a casual yet chic space.”
Parineeti’s den is the area she spends most of her time. This area of her home is a mirage of colors. Shabnam took it a notch up with bright cushions in contrasting colors with fun paintings on the wall and made it the most eye-catching, fun room in the house. Shabnam says, “I am a big fan of making full use of the corner space. This could be a little corner in the living room or in the kitchen. It is a great space to unwind after a rough day.”
Shabnam used royal blue on Parineeti’s balcony to make it enigmatic, added lots of greenery and carefully placed a swing seat to make it a cozy corner. According to Shabnam, ‘The key to create an amazing outdoor space is to have vertical garden & plants. They bring a sense of colour and depth to the space. Decorate the balcony edge with colourful potted plants to give out an air of coziness. You need some seating in order to truly sit back and relax! Place a bench on the side so you can enjoy the view from a stylish resting spot. The simpler they look the cleaner vibe they give.”
