The Society Interior Magazine covers the Tharavadu house, a residence situated on the outskirts of Chennai. Roping traditional Kerala elements into the interiors of their seaside home, Arun and Vijay Kumar have built their nest away from the frenetic city of Chennai. Designed by Dr Benny Kuriakose, the Kerala style house is within close proximity to the beach. Benny Kuriakose translated the family’s vision of a modern home with traditional elements into reality. The residence has a distinct balance of comfort as well as elegance.

“I find it quieter here, and it is just half an hour's drive from the city,” says Vijay. “I have collected decor pieces for this house for years; some are 20 years old and the designing and styling have been a very conscious effort,” add Aruna. The residence also features the conveniences of modern living- like a well-equipped and airy kitchen and modern bathrooms attached to the three bedrooms. The interiors of the traditional beach house display a variety of textured finishes that vary from traditional to modern.
