Meenu Agarwal of MADS Creations crafts an ornate abode at DLF Capital Greens

October 21, 2020

This luxurious residence, decorated by Meenu Agarwal, Principal Designer, MADS Creations is located at the DLF Capital Greens in Delhi. Featuring the designer's signature unabashedly opulent style, the home is replete with gold accents and intricate detailing. Apart from the interventions to the spatial composition that have resulted in a decidedly open and fluid living experience, the highlight of the residence is the use of exotic stones that interact delightfully with a plethora of other materials and textures on display. Bespoke furnishings, crafted by the Studio itself, sculptural lighting fixtures and an exclusive curation of accessories and artworks complete the lavish ensemble. Scroll down to read the designers' eloquent elucidation of the project. Modern luxury has many shades, but the one preferred by Meenu Agarwal of MADS Creations is steeped in opulence, gold accents and rich details. This sprawling home at DLF Capital Greens, Delhi, is a testimony to that. The owners of this home had found Agarwal’s work via the internet, and after being mesmerised by her repertoire of work, decided that it was best-suited for their dream home. Their plan included combining two apartments of 3500 sq ft area each, facing each other on the same floor, to create a palatial residence. The lift lobby was converted into the connecting foyer between the two apartments. It features a statement console, vibrant artwork and colourful chandelier. Each home had four bed rooms and a servant's room. Agarwal combined and converted a few rooms to create a spacious master bedroom with a lounge, a formal dining room and a larger kitchen for the family of four (a couple with two teenage children). In one of the apartments, a bedroom was converted into a formal dining area on a raised platform with marble inlay flooring. The adjoining bathroom was turned into a gorgeous powder room, and the kitchen was extended to include the servant's room as well. In the other apartment, the bedroom adjacent to the master bedroom was repurposed into a lounge by breaking down the dividing wall, and replacing it with a metal screen coated in gold. These compositional adjustments helped achieve a spatial experience that flows seamlessly. The home now comprises six bedrooms, as well as several connecting living and lounge areas, partially separated by gold polished metal screens. The grand veins of Grigio Orobico smoky grey stone covering the most of the floor interact delightfully with the diverse textures used in the detailing of the interiors, adding an opulent aesthetic to the spaces. An interspersion of playful marble inlays add to this textural play. The use of exotic stones is the mainstay of the home–Flamingo is used in the dining area on the pantry side, while Honey onyx is used in the main dining; Casablanca, NSL, Zebrano, Brescia Crema, Vegas Gold, Golden Sienna are used in the various bathrooms and powder room; and the main kitchen counter is made of Solar white. The predominantly soft pastel palette of the walls diffuses the golden accents to create a luxe environment. Stunning statement furniture, custom designed and manufactured by MADS Creations at their in-house facility complement the lavish spaces they occupy with bold shapes and forms, exquisite materials and finishes, and sophisticated textures. The informal dining and entertaining area features a bar counter in green that has been crafted to appear suspended from the ceiling. The bedrooms are mostly adorned in soothing hues, with intricate detailing on the surfaces, using wallpapers, paneling and engaging artworks. Sculptural lights, specially customised for the space elevate the affluence of the spaces, while an exclusive curation of accessories and art enhance the overall beauty of the interiors.
