Antiquities in Modern Spaces by Raji Radhakrishnan

FullSizeRender.jpg

I often get asked how to mix traditional antiquities in Modern interiors. It’s very simple. Treat them as what they are - priceless art - but make them connect and relevant for today. In this case that meant an elevated poise in conversation with another old word soul - the Mural. An apartment I designed for a traveling woman who had collected art and antiquities from around the world yet wanted a very modern space that was relaxing and connected with the Kalorama neighborhood (DC). This project has been published a few times including in @homeanddesigndc and @luxemagazine and is on our website’s press section 🥀 #photography by @rikkisnyder

When the clients say, we love color! Do you pull all the stops or do you release strong doses strategically?? Guess what we chose to do - here, some details of their family room with our bespoke rug. #rajirmrugs

When the clients have a world class collection of art including a whole set of Henry Moores, do you play with it? Or do you play with it? Photography by @rikkisnyder Design by #rajirmdesign .

Happy days by Raji Radhakrishnan

FullSizeRender.jpg

When you have a daughter who starts counting the number of days for her next birthday the very next day after her birthday was celebrated, you know you have to begin the celebration about a month ahead! Well, we also had my husband’s brother and family visiting us so we had good reason to. I personally was so thankful and had to celebrate that my ear infection spared me for the day and allowed me an almost pain free day to enjoy with family and of course I took up the chance to wear this #nozari Kanjeevaram for all the above reasons. A blue shot with black and a black temple border lined with red and orange peacock motifs was perfect for the occasion. A memorable evening with family and the children especially with my niece who I adore! How brilliant children are these days?!! Swipe to see photos 💙🧡 #dilvilpyarvyar2019 .

Arts & Crafts by Raji Radhakrishnan

At our client installation this week, a DC rowhouse filled with the most beautiful and thoughtful things for a husband and wife history buffs... details of a bespoke rug for their family room. Inspired by the Arts and Crafts period and particularly the Wiener Werkstatte movement, this project was a labor of love and it shows when the client says how much they LOVE everything! .

Traditional and Modern by Raji Radhakrishnan

The project that was shot by @elledecor last spring and still hasn’t been published. Editors have come and gone and with these things you never know. But, this was one fun project! Space was the star and plying it to become an art centered home perfect for clients to entertain was the name of the game. #RajiRMmurals Leopold’s #16 Mural and #RajiRMrugs Whitney rug is featured here underpinning the continuous play of traditional and modern throughout this home. #photography by @rikkisnyder
