Luxury Homes- Nothing is more...

—By Ankush Aggarwal, Ansa Interiors
Tired of maddening city traffic and extremely busy schedule…Think of owning a weekend holiday home. Nothing is more seductive than entering a luxurious home where fine furnishings and lavish backgrounds set the tone and reflections of luxury home interiors. First thing most important is choosing a location. If you like golf, check for golf link properties on the outskirts of Delhi. And if you like natural beauty, check properties on sohna road where you can get a vision of Aravalies. Depending on your taste, make this home your fantasy world. A place to rejuvenate and relax.

Adding features that call on you to indulge, is a reasonable reason to go to your holiday home week after week. Be open to the concept of “nothing is more”, and just unleash your imagination. Beautiful landscape gardens with cabana furniture, on open air grill and bar. A touch of wrought iron machans and some stone sculptures with a water body will make it a place to spend a perfect evening or and early morning breakfast with family and friends. You can think of adding a hookah corner or a canopy with hammock for reading a book.

Large floor to ceiling windows overlooking your garden or exterior views from your bedroom is so cooling. Spend luxuriously on bathrooms .Bathrooms with radiant heated floors for winters and air conditioned for winters. Bathrooms are ideal for chromo therapy, installing bathtubs with chromo therapy options are an ultimate relaxation. The new bath range Chromo therapy allows an individual to be immersed in a warm, ultra-deep bath and, with the touch of a button, enhance the bathing environment to include a full spectrum of dramatic color - from soothing to stimulating. Add a steam shower and experience the indulgent warmth of steam. Let your body relax and purify itself in the rich moisture. Relieve muscle tension and joint fatigue. Reduce stress and cleanse skin impurities.

Saunas have long been seen as luxury items that can only be found in expensive fitness and health clubs but in recent years there has been a growing trend that has seen the numbers of such products increase in bathrooms all across the world. How about swimming into a bar in your private swimming pool ?

Billiard or pool table room, with a serving counter for snacks is ideal for a small friendly game with your loved ones. But while designing take care of sufficient lighting, specially centralized of the table.

If you are fond on movies and music, a “media room” or “home theatre” filled with top-of-the-line equipment-a large flat screen 3-D TV or a projector, stereophonic speakers, easy chairs galore-should be included in your plans. Ah! A great place to watch cricket matches. Think of private library, one lined with books and speakers for playing soft music to aid concentration, and one with plenty of light.

Whatever you do, keep it simple. This is your holiday home. You don’t want to spend time giving instructions on cleaning this and that. At Ansa we prefer the more contemporary version of luxurious interior designs that opts for quiet warm neutral color themes, less pompous and more elegant. Luxury that provides style with comfort and calm to your mind and body.
