All project descriptions are provided by SBID Awards entrants.
Shalini Misra designed this family home celebrating craftsmanship, culture and traditional and artistic techniques with hints of the family’s Indian heritage. It had previously been stripped of all period features, making it very contemporary, therefore the client wanted to reinstate historical elements to bring back a sense of British heritage and craftsmanship.
A large part of the project was sourcing great British craftmanship. A range of techniques from guilding to cabinet making was employed for various furniture and surfaces. The variety of textures, materials and colours creates an overall palette of tactile quality with interest on every surface, whilst bringing in period elements through cornicing and ceiling moulding. There is a play between old and new through existing pieces, vintage and contemporary lighting and furniture. The interiors were a means to tell a story through global pieces to vintage finds combined with elements from India representing the client’s heritage.
