Design Crush: The Lakshman Sagar Resort in Rajasthan, India

I’m beyond excited to share this week’s Design Crush! The Lakshman Sagar Resort in Rajasthan, just a half hour drive from Jodhpur, was designed by Sahil & Sarthak. The resort was created with local and sustainable materials, utilizing artisan skills from the traditional ‘jajmani’ system. The resort’s stunning exterior and interior are filled with several traditional elements and contain a few modern surprises as well.

The resort is comprised of 12 private cottages surrounded by 32 acres of hills as well as a lake. Two 19th-century hunting lodges have been converted into dining and lounging spaces with light fixtures made from milk cans and cooking pots. On the grounds you’ll also find a garden, indoor pool and outdoor pool.

The cottages are designed without doors between the living room, bedroom and bathroom. While I’m not an “open-door” person but the rooms do look interesting!

Interior elements are made by crafting everyday objects, farming tools and household utensils from around the Raipur region. The furniture was hand-crafted specifically for the resort, and all materials were locally sourced. All upholstery was based off of patterns and colors of traditional women’s clothing.

I love the bright colors on the furniture and furnishings but I especially love the neon pinks and blues used as accents on the architectural details.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Design Crush, and it kicks your week off with a colorful start!
