No colour or pattern is too bold for this Pune home

The houndstooth flooring in the lift lobby, the blue tie and dye sofa in the foyer, the green and grapefruit walls pretty much set the tone for the rest of this MuseLAB designed home in Pune. “Since this is a 7,000 square foot space, it’s sort of treated like a villa in the sky,” Huzefa Rangwala tells us about the stunning 12th floor apartment in a new highrise in the city. He is one half of Mumbai-based design firm MuseLAB and dressed in a polka-dotted shirt and striped pants are very much the mastermind of the brand aesthetic that he has created and refined along with co-founder Jasem Pirani. Known for their expert layering with colour, texture, print, and pattern, such is the way of their reputation preceding them, even I picked my stripiest dress to wear to the interview. And it all feels apt when Jasem and Namrata Tidke (associate architect at the firm) walk in wearing stripes too!A foyer with access to four rooms with black and white patterned tiles, a bench and a golden framed mirror

The home, which belongs to a Muscat-based entrepreneur and his wife and three kids, works as a base for their visits to India. The houndstooth flooring in the lift lobby, the blue tie and dye sofa in the foyer, the green and grapefruit walls pretty much set the tone for the rest of this MuseLAB designed home in Pune. “Since this is a 7,000 square foot space, it’s sort of treated like a villa in the sky,”. The house isn’t driven by any architectural ‘ism’s’ such as maximalism or minimalism. Every piece in the house, including the curtains and upholstery, has been customised to created something that the family can call their own. Take a tour with us as we visit this Pune home filled with an exciting play of prints and colours!

The three of them hit a kind of a jackpot with this home project – a blank slate and an NRI client who gave them complete free reign in designing the space. Jasem tells me that the five-bedroom apartment, with two kitchens and a pool is the biggest home they have worked on so far. “This single five bedroom is as big as four three-bedroom apartments in Mumbai,” he laughs. “We had to open up our minds because we were used to smaller Mumbai apartments and always working to create more space. Here it was about what do we do with all the space?”A foyer with a large sofa with blue fabric, patterned tiles on the wall behind it, a side table and a standing lamp next to it
