Mithila inspiration for New Delhi home
New Delhi-based Amaze Spaces has designed The Mithilanchal Quest, which is a functional, comfortable and aesthetic home based on the Mithila art of Bihar. Raw textures and contemporary elements come together to create the space, which is a modern and youthful design to the inhabitants. Two entrances mark the apartment; while one is from the living room, the other is from an exclusive private passage that takes one into the 3BHK home overlooking the Ashoka trees. It is conceptualized for a nuclear family, with separate areas for each purpose.
Apart from the beige-coloured walls, the living room features Italian marble flooring, brown and grey-grained ceiling and wood and white being the primary shades. Matte-polished wooden battens in the ceilings lend a traditional yet contemporary ambience, while the beige accent wall with a natural stone art piece represents the stone-cut architecture of Bihar while retaining the decluttered look. The TV unit has powder-pink French panelling and a dark oakwood console, and the living and dining spaces are divided by a geometrical partition for storage.
Coming to the dining room, the dining table features pure sheesham wood and an onyx Makrana marble tabletop with Persian blue and faded teal chairs. The arch divides the dining and mandir areas, combining Indian and Morrocan architecture, along with a false ceiling and wooden fan. On the opposite wall, one would see a lime-coloured floral wallpaper and Mithila paintings done on silk, bringing together a tropical colour palette and greenery in the backdrop.
The master bedroom has a stone-clad wall with wooden panelling against the bed, with champagne glass side and a chamfered false ceiling. A deep-green velvet bed adds texture and colour to the room, which denotes royalty. The daughter’s bedroom features a contemporary French design with blush salmon pink and castor blue accents, along with terventino and Italian marble classing, a neoclassical a framed fresco from Michelangelo’s collection. A relatable bedroom is design for the younger son, with a quirky wall art. Olive-green walls, a dark oakwood console and a white study table.
