Treasure Trove

Festive times are the most joyous expression of how we live and celebrate tradition. They allow us to let go of the everyday and escape into the richness of past rituals and environments we create.

About The Project

We want to create a bar with a mix of two cultures—Italian chic meets the dream palace of a Maharaja—as a view of how we dream about India and to bring alive the beauty of the past. I made mood boards to tell this story and from there we came up with the colour scheme for the bar, the design of its furniture and fabrics, right down to the design of the crockery. 

I think by creating a story and using elements from the past mixed with different cultures you create a treasure—something special and unique. We did this by using traditional artisans from Jaipur and their techniques mixed with a very European vision. Vikas Soni and his team were the artists I worked with for all the paintings and art on the walls. His work can be seen at many other heritage and restoration projects in Rajasthan. 

I love colour, it is of utmost importance and creates the mood and feeling of my work.

About The Project

When I first designed the store, the first few things that came to my mind was to make it connect with the senses—a space that smells good, feels good, and creates a visual feast. 

East meets west with interesting feature walls, high ceilings, iron Corinthian pillars and industrial chandeliers, lights, and accessories. A quick glance and you will notice numerous feature walls—each done with distinctive elements that create a statement in itself. One of the walls — almost 12 feet high, adorns old drawers as shelves with varied decor products on display. The main chandelier at the entrance is made of mesh and 300 bulbs, and not only is it striking, it emulates what Room Therapy is all about. We documented the entire construction and the interiors as a time lapse, and more from the store can be seen online at www.roomtherapyhome.com

Material and Colour 

The colour palette was carefully chosen. The interiors had to be impressive but not be more overwhelming than the products. The idea was to still keep the products in focus. Hence the floor and ceilings and walls were mostly muted and made a statement with colours at the entrance. So we followed a distinct pattern:

  1. To make a grand first impression. 
  2. Then relax the colours to stop overwhelming the senses. 
  3. Lastly, to make you comfortable within the space.

“We use colour extensively. It defines the mood, ambiance, and the energy of a space. Once the functions are in place, we try to play around with colours depending on the requirement.”
