Dani and his family, who are settled abroad, are incredibly thrilled to show guests around their brand new house at his home town in Paliyekkara, in Thrissur district, Kerala. They wanted an elegant house that is easy to maintain. The family didn’t want their dream abode to feature any luxurious or over – the – top decor but preferred to have all the modern facilities. The structure is built, on a 15 cents plot, by leaving enough space for the front yard. The stunning exteriors make the house look as elegant and stylish as a mansion.
The elevation of this house features box-style designs that adorn beautiful natural stone claddings. Natural stone and green grass are paved in alternate layers in the front yard.
The splendid mansion, designed in 2900 sq ft area, has a car porch, sit-out, living and dining areas, pantry kitchen, working kitchen and five bedrooms.
The living-cum-dining hall is designed, following the open theme. These spaces are cleverly separated using a compact yet eye-catching curio shelf. From the living area, one could get into the patio, through a sliding glass door, where lush greenery awaits you.
The walls don a serene white hue that makes spaces look vaster. Meanwhile, vitrified tiles in white shade, are paved on the floor. The dominance of the white colour lends a pleasant and tranquil look to the interiors. The false ceiling highlighted using warm toned light settings follow the theme of minimalism and classy elegance. The custom made furniture adds panache to the well arranged interior spaces.
The roof above the stairway is in double height. The skylight here welcomes lots of natural sun shine that illuminates the interiors. The wall beside the stairway is highlighted using texture paint.
The stairway leads to an upper living area that has been turned into a spacious library. The hand railings here are designed as book racks, which saves space and also acts as an interesting design feature.
The pantry kitchen designed in the open style is just beside the dining area. There is an adjacent working kitchen as well. Both the kitchens don the amazing colour combination of white and green which is very soothing to the eyes. The kitchen cabinets are done in plywood – laminate finish. Meanwhile, nano white is paved on the counter top.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and three in the upper storey. All the bedrooms are designed giving prime importance to excellent ventilation. Roller blinds are installed on the windows here to regulate the sun shine that enters through them. The bath attached bedrooms have in – built wardrobes for storage and separate dressing spaces.
Amazing supply of natural light and the perfect cross ventilation play pivotal roles in making the interiors extremely pleasant. There is no need to switch on the lights during the day time as the spaces are always well lit. The hot air would be pushed out of the vents, making the spaces cool and comfortable.
When all the lights are switched on, this house dons a magical look and shines mesmerizingly against the perfect twilight sky. The family feels pride and happiness when their friends and relatives shower them with praises for building such a spectacular house.
