“The Meraki Home”

 Finalized during the pandemic, The Meraki Home is an 1800 square feet apartment in Gurugram, Haryana,designed by  Priyanka Singh and Jhanak Jain. The home projects a warm and inviting image with optimal space and functionality. Its design reflects the personality and lifestyle of the owner and revolves around the philosophy of creating a unique, innovative and clutter free space.

Ingenious design solutions maximise space while neutral tones, wood tones and accent colours combine together to create a warm and soothing decor

A warm, inviting and homely décor was achieved by introducing natural materials, textured fabrics, wooden elements and hints of metal. Wall-mounted light fixtures avoided cluttering of table tops and the bed heights were ergonomically designed according to the comfort of the end user. While planning the home, Priyanka ensured that all the four bedrooms of the home have an ensuite bathroom. The size of the kitchen was reduced to scoop out a dedicated space for ironing clothes and storage. 

The living room comprises a feature wall with an array of square shaped mirrors which reflects a lot of light and creates the feeling of spaciousness while the carpets and cushions stand out in shades of blue. The dining room is multifunctional and includes a circular dining table with an Italian marble top, a built-in crockery unit, a bar and a modern puja space. The bespoke furniture is customised by Chalk Studio and executed with a lot of detail.

Each bedroom is skilfully crafted so that it includes a bed, side tables, a study table and an accent element which can transform the overall look of the bedroom. A floating study and TV unit in the master bedroom brings in the feeling of openness, sky blue colour is used in the daughter’s bedroom to accentuate the bed and pin up board while tones of grey and black fabric heighten the ambience of the son’s bedroom. 

The carpet is sourced from Jaipur rugs while the collection of cushions is from Sarita Handa and Rajee Sood. The artefacts are specially handpicked from Oma, Bo Concept, Gigi, Chakra and the chandelier is custom-made by The Lighting Studio. Custom touches and clever planning come together to create a highly luxurious and comfortable multifunctional space.

A brainchild of Priyanka Singh, Gurgaon based Chalk Studio Design Pvt. Ltd.  is an interior design firm established two years back. Priyanka Singh has a passion for interior design and is an alumni of Parsons, The New School of Design with an added experience of working with renowned firms like Tihany Design and Rockwell Group in New York. After returning to India, Priyanka set up her own firm Chalk Studio which has a global design vision and has innovatively designed more than 40 prestigious projects within a short span of time.

Quote“We decided to call this project ‘The Meraki Home’ because it was designed with a lot of dedication and passion during unprecedented times. Since the entire project was conceptualised and executed during the pandemic, we were working remotely on the design and taking approvals from the client who was in Singapore. It was a challenging experience because the civil work was going on at site when we were simultaneously finalising the design and the client moved in  two days before Diwali when the project was in the finishing stage, ” says Priyanka Singh, Founder and Principal Designer of Chalk Studio.
