Bestowed with an interesting layout and proportions, Pooja Shah, Birju Shah and Dhara Shah, founding partners of Ahmedabad-based STUDIO-IN-DTALE were entrusted with designing the interiors of this 3,800 sq ft home with abundant natural light, stunning volumes and expansive spaces. Located on the 14th floor in upscale Ahmedabad, the apartment showcases a balance of textures and neutral colours at its soul with the rawness of lime plaster, the brilliance of brass and handwoven fabrics coming together to create a plush and congenial haven for the homeowners. The home accommodates three generations—a grandmother who is 90 years old, a couple who are 60, the husband being a cyber security consultant, and the wife is a travel blogger who arranges customised trips and a young daughter.
