Linking Road in Khar, Mumbai, is your usual potpourri of disorderly traffic and past-their-prime buildings. Housed in one of the latter is an empty four-bedroom flat, and in this, is a small office for O’ Yeah Klass Entertainment, an event management company, owned by Roshan Mansukhani. The office had earlier been decorated in a mix of fluorescent shades that gave the space a bohemian air (photographs below). With a budget “not worth mentioning” and feng-shui principles to be adhered to that necessitated removing all traces of bright colours, designer Rachna Kapoor of Thinking Elements Design Studio resorted to a single dominant colour scheme. She also rummaged among piles of material lying around in the office, some of which had been relegated to oblivion, and came up with some unusual solutions. “Roshan’s office is easily my most favourite project, I loved doing up this space,” she says, and Mansukhani claims that “it’s a whole lot more fun coming to work these days”.
