Vishram By The Sea - The Key Bunch
October 30, 2008, 6:30:00 PM
This blog, The Key Bunch, has featured a beach house built on the shores of the Bay of Bengal. "The house is designed by award winning designer Benny Kuriakose and Vishalakshi Ramaswamy (also a designer, and the owner of the house). The interiors are a tribute to fusion design – Mediterranean colours, local Athangudi tiles, a Kerala-style bathing pool, Indian artifacts and Vasthusastra, all come together in a beautiful blend. The doors, windows and other fixtures are Vishalakshi’s personal collection, sourced from houses being demolished in her native Chettinad, and accumulated over the years. Everything about this house is special – free flowing open spaces, minimal decor and furniture, the blue and yellow combinations – my kind of holiday home for sure! Sitting here, one can easily forget the bustle and grind of city life and truly unwind, be one with nature and just live."
