Meet Jyotika and Rohan, dear friends of mine who recently moved apartments within San Francisco and have been busy setting up their new home over the last few months.
I have always adored Jyotika's sense of personal style and have been pestering her to let me blog about her place. Her fun, eclectic style combined with Rohan's clean minimalism has resulted into a perfect modern glam home for the lovely couple and I couldn't wait to share it with all of you.
When I asked Jyotika about her design inspiration, she said," We love natural light and colors and wanted to create a beautiful place without it being too crowded"
The first thing you notice in the home is the amazing amount of natural light which opens into the room and how it creates more visual space. Every piece in the room looks hand picked, and the space feels warm and welcoming.
The CB2 orange sleeper sofa livens up the room instantly and doubles up as a bed when they're hosting guests. The chevron sofa table from One Kings Lane is a perfect divider between the living and the kitchen area.
The tall bookshelf and the two oversized mirrors, on the opposite sides of the room, create a visual illusion of space in the area.
The transparent chairs add to the funk in the room, and provide extra seating without impacting the visual space.
And I just love the happy yellow trunk next to the TV cabinet below. Great use of the space, while adding some smart storage.
There are so many little knick knacks that add to the character of the room...
How do you display something you love? Simple - you get it framed!!.
The paintings below are from Sanjay Patel's work- Jyotika's favorite artist. I love the depiction of Goddess Saraswati, Gautam Budda and Sita. The white frames match the wall and keep the focus on the paintings. These beautiful pieces on a white background provide a relaxed look to the room. Aren't they cute??
Here's the walkway to the bedroom...
The bedroom feels calm and soothing with the warm earthy palette. A fun red trunk placed next to the bed is perfect for storing the bedside essentials and the trunk also doubles up as a storage spot that helps tuck away all the extra stuff that tends to accumulates in the room (don't we all heart clever storage options!!).
Keeping everything else in the room simple is a great way of enhancing art. The huge canvas print above the bed surely makes a grand statement. The couple loves nature and decided to get some greenery in the room through the art. It adds the right amount of softness to make it truly comfortable. And besides, isn't it nice to wake up in a peaceful room :).
