This 2500 Square Foot Colonial Style Thrissur Home Is A Splendid Vision In White
Anu George, who is an expat, is proud to show around his brand new colonial style home which exudes the serene grace of the white hue. The single storey house which stands at 42 cents, in Peechi, Thrissur district has been designed to meet the needs and interests of the family. They wanted a single-storey house because it was easy to maintain. Also, they believe it facilitates communication and bonding between family members.
The pitched roof adds an old world charm to the fabulously designed elevation. The dormer windows which are the highlights of colonial mansions can also be seen here. Meanwhile, the flat roof at the back of the house is covered with a GI truss roof. This area could be used as a utility space, making the home space efficient and smart.
The beautifully done landscaping also plays a vital role in enhancing the overall look of the elevation. The lush green lawns, classic planters and driveway perfectly complement the colonial style. The architects have the merit of having organized all the modern conveniences on a single floor. Designed over 2,500 square feet, this mesmerizing abode features a car porch, formal and family living areas, dining space, two courtyards, kitchen with adjacent work space, and four bedrooms. Besides the main entrance into the living room area, there is another entrance next to the porch which opens into the family living room.
Tile flooring in a matte finish is chic and lends a clean look to interiors. Bespoke furniture, on the other hand, is stylish and blends well with the overall theme of the home. Double courtyards are the highlight of the beautifully furnished interiors. These courtyards provide excellent cross ventilation inside the house and naturally illuminate the areas with golden sunlight.
The courtyard is the focal point of the spacious formal living space. The wall here is decorated with an interesting wallpaper that looks like wooden logs. Indoor plants, on the other hand, also add a nice touch of greenery.
The family living room is compact, with the second courtyard separating it from the dining area. The modern dining table set has a bench on one side. The charming pendant lights add a splendid ambience to the dining room. The indoor palms that grow in the yard here are majestic.
The kitchen is arranged in the perfect place as one can easily look at the doors from here. The modern ‘L’ shaped kitchen has cabinets in MDF finish. The counter was paved with white nano. Instead of a usual breakfast counter, a hob has been fixed in the area that opens to the dining area. It could also be turned into a breakfast place if a few high chairs are placed on the other side.
The rooms have been designed in interesting themes and color combinations. The designs of the main side panels give a unique identity to the beautifully furnished rooms. The bedrooms adjoining the bath also have fitted wardrobes for storage.
The family is happy that their new home is exactly as they had dreamed.
