THE MUTICULTURAL SILK ROUTE PROJECT BY AIDEN T STUDIO

THE MUTICULTURAL SILK ROUTE PROJECT BY AIDEN T STUDIO

November 18, 2021

 

Luxury design projects come in various ways and styles. It could be contemporary, classic, mid-century, Scandinavian, Haussmannian, among many other options. Fortunately, we live in a global era with multiple references and we are able to mix two or more styles: and it has the power to create a beautiful, rich and multicultural environment. That is what happened in this project by Arjan Nijen Twilhaar, Principal designer from Aiden T Studio, and we want to show you all the details. Come with us!

 

 

The inspiration was drawn from the Silk Road, the journey to bring valuable silk from China to the West. At the foundation of the design are the Lanna Colonial homes found in Northern Thailand – with its mix of dark woods and white plastered walls. The design was further infused with Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern and Western influences – creating a unifying style that sparks personality, vibrancy and design layering.

The dining area is the statement room of the house. The mural features a scene from the Chao Phraya River. The colour tones are in dialogue with the kitchen and a strong green hue is added to the overall colour palette. A quiet star of the room is the coiffed ceiling with its fretwork design. This adds another layer of design and texture to the space. A large round bone inlay table centres the space and the shape reflects a Thai food bowl design. The green silk velvet chairs add more colour and create a vibrant vignette.

 

 

 

 

Leaving the dining room, you can find the veranda, with a mix of natural materials and nature. To create the illusion of space, the back wall was mirrored and a wood trellis was added on top. The ultimate goal is for the trellis to be covered with plants to add a green wall. The flooring was laid in a striped chevron pattern and comfortable outdoor furniture make this space an outdoor living room.

Upstairs, the second level houses the private family space. A large master suite features a walk in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. In the master bedroom, the headboard wall is laid with a paisley wallpaper. The window treatments divide the windows for a more Western aesthetic of smaller windows. Custom bone inlay side tables are a nod to the British Raj part of the design story. In the wardrobe, laminate shaker doors are combined with rattan detail for a colonial vibe. The rose garden wallpaper is a nod to the Western influence of this overall theme. In the master bathroom, Taj Mahal marble inspired tiles line the wall, while these are combined with batik print decorative tiles, contemporary mirror and louvred door carpentry. Porcelain handles complete the overall look.
