The look and feel is classic contemporary. The pieces of art have been collected over a period of time, during the designer's travel across the globe. So the venetian mirrors, art by masters like Raza, MF Hussain, Satish Gujral or Ramachandran or KIRAN Mohindra - all are collections over the years.
Payal Kapoor says, "Sometimes the opulence is a bit overwhelming for me, but these have sentimental value too."
The mood palette of drapes and upholstery is simple cream tones and has no 'bling.' It’s only the object d art, paintings and accessories which make a statement. Since we believe a house becomes a home, and reflects the warmth with all the things collected overtime, which have certain memories starched to them, best is to display them and enjoy the same."
Fresh flowers have always been a weakness and during winter and spring, Ms Kapoor likes to have them around. The opulent mirrors again are made to order as the residents like the shape and colours. Since the association with palaces and colonial places has been obvious, the look and feel is of luxury rather than minimalistic.
Large windows overlooking the garden full of flowers is also a luxury in Delhi homes, which the designer is lucky to have.
Payal Kapoor shares, "I like Chandliers, lamps, mellow lighting, stained glass and created cushions."
