Home tour from Penang, Malaysia

As the geographical boundaries cease to cause any limitation and there is a global approach to designing one's home it becomes thrilling for me as a decor blogger to feature a home that's a true blend of traditional and the modern!
 Today sajavat takes you across to Malaysia where our very sweet Geetha resides with her hubby in the island of Penang. They are ethnic Tamils, but draw their home-deco influences, from a mix of cultures within Malaysia.
She is attached to the Inland Revenue Department, while her husband works as an Engineer in the private sector. A young married couple for 3 years are our inspiration today, for a home built with love, warmth and care!

Let's straight way get inside their spacious abode...

Now, that's an impressive structure! isn't it? The above image shows the front main gate entrance, with 2 medium-height Bucida trees planted on the right side.

As we make our entry inside...

There is a modern air inside Geetha's home but the artifacts are traditionally inclined. Some of the decor elements that have marked their presence and taken the decor a notch above are the kathakali mask,the thorans and the big urn planter! The horses and candles placed in the entry way creates another focal point.Simple lines, highlighted wall and ample lighting fixtures are other take away inspirations from this space.

The living area:

There is another living area on the first floor which we can say would be one for the very close family.This area is starkly different from the one you see at the ground floor.

 Orange and green colours are predominant in this space. The elephant cushion covers, Buddha frames, the brass bells suspended from corbels and the prabhavali act as the cynosures in these well captured images.


The other end...
Lets have a peek at her dining and kitchen space...

Am loving the burst of colours in her bedroom and dining room.What about you folks?

 Prayer room...

I can sense the peace and calmness one can achieve in a well designed space like this.

Certain other thoughtfully captured  and striking vignettes...

In Geetha's words...

Inspirations for our Home:
"Our house is a triple-storey terrace, with a tinge of neo-colonial touch to it.
We draw influences from a myriad of ethnic and modern contemporary ideas.
The premise of the exterior and interior " grooming" lies on the concept of
simplicity and a clutter-free environment. Nevertheless, there's still room for splashes
of chic modern touches, neatly tucked within essential corners/areas of the house. Both me and my husband have contrasting hobbies; I like to travel and collect decorative items, while my husband simply likes to collect star war TOYS!!!
While the synergy might be slightly an oddball one, yet we do still share similar passion when adorning our humble abode."

Thanks so much Geetha for letting me and the readers of sajavat in for such a visual delight!
