Heritage Textile Display

This long corridor runs the course of the entire floor leading to various rooms. It is a constant thoroughfare and the brief was to make a visually appealing place that displayed some of the owner's valued possessions and also served as a useful storage area for many household items.

Home styling decisions become so much easier when you have a pre-set focal point in terms of a piece that has to be placed in a particular position and then you are forced to design the remaining space around that item. This is exactly what happened in this hallway; a large wall hanging, an antique Punjabi Phulkari Bagh (big shawl) belonging to the owner's grandmother had to be hung on this continuous long wall. The owners are fans of fusion decor, where ethnic and modern elements are juxtapositioned for a unique look that represents our lives and travels and contains elements from a variety of interior styles. While the wall piece is ethnic in nature, they wanted to incorporate a modern and timeless feel to the landing and adjoining corridor. Two matching rugs in broad black and white stripes were chosen for the long corridor floor that ends in into a landing area. Stripes rugs are ideal for adding boldness without drama and the stripes are stylish and a great contrast to the wall hanging. In the landing area, storage was built-in on the top and bottom with a wooden countertop atop the bottom storage cupboards. The black and white terracotta vases are great for flowers in this area and the filigree bowl from Gangtok is ideal for cards and passes used on a daily basis by the family. Together, they work well with the black and white box alongside the countertop. The top also holds a low lamp for a wonderful glow in the evening and the all-important internet booster. In the long part of the corridor, a low-level black metal shelving unit has been placed to hold books that always seem to overflow from the children’s rooms. It has been positioned right under the wall hanging for symmetrical effect; it also proved to be a great base for the long wooden boat purchased in Kochi. Last but not least, old Bollywood posters adorn the walls of the corridor and are a nod to the owners love for Bollywood.
