For the Malayalam film producer Shebin Backer, he always likes to pack exclusivity and minimalism, something that would endure over time and be a trend. Shebin has worked in popular Malayalam movies like Thanneer Mathan Dinangal, Charlie, and Pullipulikalum Aattinkuttiyum. His choice of getting a home in Kochi was really quite appealing. Shebin Backer’s apartment is strategically located at MG Road, Marine drive Kochi, Kerala and that offers a breathtaking view of the backwaters.
As someone who is very particular about all the details, our client, Mr. Shebin Backer wanted this 3bhk property in Kochi to be “open, contemporary yet warm with some punches of colors”. He wanted his precious abode to be a timeless space featuring spacious layouts and thoughtfully harmonized decor. Having consulted with us early on, we had the flexibility to guide through the layouts and create a space that evolved organically.
The moment you enter the apartment, what you see is an inviting space that adorns interesting decor finishes and pure ravishing glamour. The breathtaking view to the marine drive and backwaters of Kochi from the large balcony makes up the entire view of the living area. The highlight of the living room is the television unit. The black themed unit spans the entire wall. Fringing the unit is a tripod floor lamp, which blends into the home’s design in a seamless manner.
The dining area abuts the living space. With a window that is expansive like the length of the wall, the space gains plenty of natural light. The idea behind is to create a transition to tie in the colors and patterns of the living space. All furniture in this apartment at the heart of Kochi is custom made as per the requirements. The chairs upholstered in pale teal go well to even the far end of the dining room. Next to the dining room is a mirrored wall with a moody yet artistic design scheme. The reflective surface lets in an expansive-atmosphere and a sense of luxe.
The bedrooms of this marvelous home in Kochi lie at the end of the passage. Our client wanted a spacious and uncluttered look on the bedrooms. Thus, we have achieved it with a mix of pastel tones and some interesting color palette. As for Mr. Shebin, “the interior is a pure collaboration of contemporary décor and trendy finish”. The wardrobe gives an expansive feel, visually and doubles the size of the room along with functionality. The trademark sheer style, tall headboards … all make for an expansive-atmosphere yet cozy space. The blue Color introduced through cushions and accessories can be seen to perk up the overall palate. The luxurious master bedroom also consists of a blue armchair to provide a perch for reading and repose and has direct access to the balcony offering a view of the lakes beyond.
The homeowner wanted to give the same contemporary update to all the bedrooms. Therefore, the second bedroom keeps up the similar richly layered and textured ethos, which runs through the living dining with custom furniture and details. Grey walls and splashes of monochrome distinguish it. The bed also features a custom-made floor lamp and a wardrobe
This beautiful home in Kochi also features an office inside. Here, we wanted to create a professional space for the filmmaker . And for that we went with grey tones with a feature wall and film posters to set the right mood for the space.
The kitchen of Mr. Shebin Backer’s home in Kochi is a place that brings a fresh vibe. The backsplash and the ceiling in white break the monotony and give the area a larger look. We converted the kitchen into a semi-open space to improve the natural light flow. He wanted the kitchen to be unique and interesting, so the kitchen interiors features dual shades of grey and wooden. It is beyond doubt, perfect enough to match their own unique personality.
