Silence, whether experienced with people or places, bears the inherent quality of intimacy. It offers one the space to create and communicate effectively without pretension. In a colonial bungalow we decorated in Southern India, we attempt to let it speak through the mellow tones of greens and yellow used, borrowed from an experience in a mist drenched valley. Its presence, we hope, is also felt through the restraint in the use of gilt, inspired by the elegance of the structure of the bungalow.
In an era dominated by constant and loud communication, silence seemed like a worthy pursuit for the design language of this old bungalow and we hope to have created a quietly elegant space that is comforting and in turn, asks quiet from the persons that interact with it.
