"It was one of life's most wonderful coincidences when I heard about Pavitra through a relative of mine. I thought furnishing an entire new house would be chaotic and a headache to execute, but working with Pavitra made it not only easy as a breeze but exciting as well. Not many designers would take a client's personal taste into consideration when planning a space, luckily I ended up with someone who does. I've met many interior designers but Pavitra's name always comes first to mind when friends or family ask me for a recommendation."

It's Smokin' Hot .....It's Smokin' Grey!!!

Hotter than the Dubai weather, is my current favorite color SMOKE GREY!

Grey is an achromatic or neutral color, which has a silent and receptive quality to it. There is an industrial aspect to this color and was often associated only with commercial spaces, but because of its inherent neutrality it forms the perfect canvas to showcase vibrant colors. So next time your choosing a color don’t snub the grey! I recommend using it for walls and backdrops!

Here is my color palette, alongside SMOKE GREY I have chosen mandarin orange, neon yellow, fuchsia pink and blue-violet.



Perfect for a children’s bedroom!

Great for grown up’s. Take a look at this structure in concrete grey and the deep blue sky…. Isn’t it perfect!

Grey is available in several tones, in a recent project I used a bluish grey, 2 tones of the same color was used. The darker color went on smaller areas like the passageways and the lighter color was used on bigger walls which laid alongside this beautiful wallpaper with a similar background but is brought to life by the silver leaf design.

Here is the code for the colors in the project above.

I hope you enjoyed "Funk's Colors" as much as i enjoyed creating this palette. What color do you feel like today? Painting is the cheapest decorating tool to bring any room to life..... Take a chance .... till then STAY FUNKY!
