My obsession with home decor has been well documented on the blog. So when I was given a chance to tour the uber luxurious show house at the Prestige Edwardian, I of course jumped at it and brought my camera along.
The thing I love most about decor is that it needs to be livable in. By definition your home decor should allow you to live comfortably (and in style) in your home without you being constantly fearful of breaking something or messing something up. For instance I can get all the pretty decorative glass baubles I want, but I need to be prepared that my cats (I have 2 – Dobby & Sylvester ) are probably going to knock them off the shelves within 2 minutes of me putting them there. So I’ve adapted and stared decorating with other things like books and candles, which thankfully they haven’t figured out how to destroy yet. Though I have a feeling its only a matter of time.
The show house was the exact right combination of luxury and convenience. Located in the central business district of Bangalore, it also boasts of a spa, gym, squash court and a swimming pool within the apartment building. It was beautifully decorated, but not so crammed with excessive decorative knick knacks that I could walk around without being scared of knocking something over.
Using the actual architectural elements of a house to decorate, like door frames, entryways and ceilings is usually a great way to jazz up a space without adding more to it. I absolutely fell in love with all the muted gold accents in the house, brilliant how they used the door frames and frames of all the mirrors in the same muted gold to tie in the whole thing without making it too over the top.
One of the first things I noticed when I walked in was how high the ceiling was. It instantly opens up the space and is a very difficult thing to find in apartments especially. Its a sprawling space of over 5000 square feet with four bedrooms and two living rooms. All the bathrooms have this sensor that switches the lights on and off as you enter and leave, which I thought was a very cool feature, doesn’t hurt that its going to save you tons on the electricity bill too. The place screams luxury and is the perfect blend of the space that you get from a house with the convenience of the amenities that come with living in an apartment. For now I leave you with some of the pictures of the place that I’m still drooling over! The next post will have all the details of the four bedrooms!
