Vinu Thomas’ grand abode at Koratti in Thrissur, Kerala has become the talk of the town for its splendid designs and modern amenities. Besides granting a chic look to the elevation, the sloped roof in layers perfectly suits the tropical climate of Kerala. Moreover, the grey roofing tiles add classy elegance too. The iconic color combination of grey and white on the exteriors make this house look fabulous against the lush greenery around.
The aesthetically designed landscape enhances the overall look of the house. Refreshing lawns that are paved with Mexican grass, small trees that require minimal care and beautiful flowering plants are the main attractions of the charming garden. Instead of a concrete compound wall, GI grilles have been used as fencing. Besides granting an open and spacious look, this doesn’t block the amazing view of the house.
The gazebo over the car porch is an interesting feature which is decorated with beautiful plants and classy furniture. The glass roofing on the GI pillars and the wooden deck exude a decadent elegance. This is the family’s favorite spot where they love to spend the evenings.
Designed in 4250 sqft, this splendid mansion has a car porch, sit out, formal and family living areas, dining area, kitchen with a work area and four bedrooms.
The sit out has been specially designed to enjoy the amazing views of the landscape. The interiors, meanwhile, are designed in the semi open style. This makes the areas look spacious without losing privacy.
The entrance door opens to the formal living area that has a double height ceiling. Huge sliding glass windows on both sides let in lots of natural sun light. The elegant curtain fitting instantly draws attention. However, this space looks incredibly vaster if the windows are opened.
Glossy vitrified tiles have been paved on the floor in the common areas. Meanwhile, the wooden flooring adds the perfect contrast here. Except the few pieces that adorn the formal living area and the dining space, the rest of the furniture are custom made to match the theme of the interiors. The prayer area is a quaint space that exudes positive vibes. A small wall has been highlighted with eye catching upholstery to separate the prayer space.
The dining area designed in double height is chic and boasts of all the modern amenities. Meanwhile, the double height glass wall here brings in golden sunshine and fabulous views of the garden too. Moreover, cool breeze from the garden enters the house if these windows are opened. The wooden ceiling gives this area the unique ambience of a European chateau. The open dining space is what connects both the floors. A quaint family living area too has been arranged as part of the dining hall. An elaborate and modern TV unit is set up here. Interestingly, a small book shelf is what separates the dining and the family living areas.
From the dining area, one could enter the kitchen through a sliding glass door. The kitchen has been furnished in the classic combination of white and wooden theme. The cupboards, meanwhile, are done in plywood with laminate finish. The counter top has been paved with nano white.
The bedrooms are spacious and luxurious. Furnishings in teak finish grant an enchanting elegance to the bedrooms. One of the bedrooms opens to the balcony that faces the garden. The bath attached bedrooms have separate sitting spaces and wardrobes for storage too.
The family says that they are inspired by the positive vibes and the mesmerizing ambience of the house. Their friends and relatives too are in awe of their brand new mansion where aesthetics meet luxury.
