In this article, we are featuring another three homes from the south Indian region. With rich decor and simple materials, these Chennai homes carry immense inspiration for modern design and architecture professionals.
South Indian interior design carries a hint of natural materials and elegant spiritual decor. Regardless of the region you visit, this inherent connection with nature and spirituality is intrinsic to the Indian community. The Chennai homes we feature are some of the most popular and acclaimed designs from the region.
The creative use of materials with a strictly limited colour palette, a cosy, luxurious ambience that stays with you or a perfect spot for contemplation; these Chennai home designs are straight out of a millennial fantasy!
1. The epitome of creativity: Luxurious interiors from Design Inc
This elegant Chennai home from Khushboo and Kunal Khandelwal of Design Inc is filled with immense creative inspiration. The design brief demanded a convenient, luxurious home with enough privacy for a four-generation family to live.
Like other joint family homes, this presents a personalised and customised approach with different spaces planned according to the lifestyle of the occupant. Still, the overall design scheme has to blend elegantly without creating odd nooks and spaces in the scheme.
The residence is a magnificent and strategically customised abode for the family without compromising on the artistic taste.
The home is on the 14th floor and therefore presents a beautiful view. The large windows accentuate the appeal of the design with a lush view of the ocean and the city. The indoor green elements offer a warm and inviting aura that never goes out of style!
2. YellowSub Studio’s elegant celebration of black and white
This 2500 sq feet apartment is one of the most elegant Chennai home designs. The innovative idea of using contrasting monochrome interiors was one of the key demands from the client. Naturally, this was easier said than done.
Working with a limited colour palette, the designers at YellowSub Studio put their creativity to the test. This was one of the few experiences where they could experiment with textures and materials, which are generally overshadowed by colours. The greyscale interiors present subtle complimentary use of wooden tones to bring in warmth and luxury.
The art decor in the house is carefully picked to introduce a hint of intrigue and personality.
3. Relaxed interiors from Souk & Kharche and Associates
This is one of the most popular Chennai homes and carries the relaxing energy of seashore. With a sweet conglomeration of rustic and minimalist interior design styles, this 4000 sq feet home presents local and international styles.
The home is 300 metres from the ocean and conveniently located 20kms from the city centre.
The design draft from the family of four (a couple and their two dogs) demanded a simple, basic and beachy home. The two-bedroom house, in the end, turned out to be an elegant place for introspection and a chic ambience for social get-togethers!
The outdoor landscape blends in beautifully with the interiors with convenient use of green elements. The eclectic mood in the interiors with strategically chosen furniture and art bring in a vibrant and playful appeal that is hard to miss!
