This living room was an irregular shaped room with a stunning skylight, herringbone bordered parquet flooring and opened onto a small outdoor patio. The room needed to house a variety of large wooden furniture pieces and a handful of large paintings collected over time by the owners and still look open and welcoming. A fusion decor style reigns supreme in this room, seamlessly blending an 'East meets West' look throughout the space as desired by the owners. The large hand-carved teak yellow mirror sourced from Mumbai defines the long wall along with an antique Balinese wedding rice chest on the other end.

An L-shaped grey Ligne Roset Opium sofa takes pride of place on the other side of the room. A large Berber rug purchased in Marrakesh was placed diagonally across the floor to maximize space given the shape of the room. Above the sofa, is a piece of cartographic art in the form of the world map. This is a mixed media silkscreen print depicting countries by their respective passports. Given the family's love for travel and having lived in various countries around the world, this spoke to the entire family’s love of travel. On the side of the sofa is a glass console table purchased on eBay. The top of this console is home to another iconic piece of art – the Indian ‘Hundred Rupee Note’. It was painted by a Czech artist who spends 6 months a year in India and is a firm family favourite. Our homes should remind us of happy times and happy travels and this living room does just that with aplomb.
