Her amiable demeanor, graciousness and humility belie her numerous achievements. However it is undeniable that the force behind ‘Tapur Chatterji- Design & Decor’… is a name that speaks for itself in more ways than one.
Tapur Chatterji’s illustrious career as one of the super-models of India, wherein she was lauded for her grace and work ethics is an important part of her being… But an innate sense of aesthetics coupled with a degree in Commercial art & love for decorating living spaces, eventually made Interior designing her true calling. It seemed almost prophetic that very early on in her life she was bestowed with nothing less than a National Award.
Whether it is a Wallpaper that is framed as a wall-hanging or custom made beauteous wall art, the Tapur touch is visible all the way…Her mantra is unflinching: “When I design something I am creating a part of me”. This by itself is a pledge that indeed speaks of ‘Tapur Chatterji – Design & Decor’ to the ‘T’.
The opportunity to create a unique space and harness my creativity is the biggest lure where I am concerned. The size of the project is only incidental.
My mind starts ticking when I see a space I have to work on. Existing references seldom influence me. Because I feel real Creativity comes with a flow. Not when you are led or guided by the vision of others. In any creation, it is the thought process, which is valuable and is what distinguishes the Good from the Mediocre…On the other hand, Interior Designing is also about Intuition. It’s about understanding and creating what the clients needs as well as wants. And it is the synergy of the two that makes the project one with a happy ending.
While designing I gravitate towards a clean and clear palette. Ideas can easily be incorporated on a clear palette. Mix and match can then happen harmoniously in a fluid fashion. And I totally believe in the beauty of simplicity. Simplicity makes it big each time and embodies class and unpretentiousness.
Designing on the laptop is still not my first option. I take my pen and paper and let my mind speak its story. So one can say my approach is not too structured – but paradoxically I love structured patterns that evolve in a fluid and innovative way. It is for that reason that I gravitate towards Moorish Architecture and that has always reflected in my work in one way or the other.
There are days when I wake up with visions of a space I want to create. I can see it in front of me and cant wait to make it a tangible reality … Those kind of days bring with them an unparalleled high. This highlights the fact that the biggest driving force in life is passion.
