 It is a 4-bedroom bungalow, a 15 years old design and construction which needed renovation. A house for a family of 5,  where all wanted a  space that they could call their dear home as they have many emotions attached to it. The real challenge was to define the already existing spaces to feel homely and the designer managed to do it easily.

The house renovation turned out to be minimalistic and having cozy corners of its own. Starting with the outdoor garden. The house was designed considering the family’s habits,  outdoor tea in the morning, cozy family time in the nights, the designed landscape added a natural touch to the house making it more homely. The living room had its furniture reused and made from the existing framework. The house is designed to match the lifestyle of the owners. The color pallet has been toned down to neutral colors which go with the interiors as well as exteriors. Hues and tones of grey are used for the house giving the house a toned-down look.
