Location: Villa in Jumeirah, Palm Jumeirah
Project Type: Palm Jumeirah Landscape Design, Garden Landscaping, Pergola Upgrade
I had the pleasure of meeting Kalpana Danthi back in 2010, when she was referred to Milestone through a dear friend.
During that time we transformed their backyard landscape and it turned out to be a lovely garden space.
Kalpana’s garden villa in Palm Jumeirah contains a small outdoor landscape area.
She wanted to create a backyard retreat where she could entertain her family and friends with ease.
She desired a beautiful entrance with sounds of relaxing water and the sights of lush greenery.
To make the most of her space, she envisioned a covered pergola to create a comfortable outdoor living space where she could relax and entertain guests with easy access to a nearby outdoor bar.
A fashionista, socialite, and influencer, Kalpana Danthi had a distinct vision for her home. She actively participated throughout the entire design process, providing a complete design brief articulating all of her requirements.
Together we infused her personal tastes and passion for design into a detail oriented space that exceeded all of her expectations.
Most recently in 2018 , Kalpana enlisted my Palm Jumeirah landscaping services to enhance her garden villa.
This pergola was built in 2011, and she was very eager to upgrade her pergola and seating and upgrade the outdoor bar area for entertaining.
This is the villas refurb we did many years ago, so it shows a before and after.
The pergola measures approximately 7 meters by 5 meters, and provides a spacious 35m2 area for seating and visiting with friends.
During this recent landscape project, we upgraded her bar area just off of the pergola, so it would match with the new look of the pergola.
As her guests enter and walk down the pathway to the pergola, they are greeted by a relaxing water feature surrounded by lush green plants.
The design theme is quite modern and neutral, with soft hues coming out through the colors of the cushions.
We selected a wine color theme to pop against the greenery and outdoor landscape.
Additionally we upgraded all of the outdoor furniture, painted the pergola, added new cushions, and created a stunning backdrop wall to bring the space together.
To make the most of her space, we also added a bit of sitting and dining on the left side of her villa.
Between the spacious living area under the pergola, the convenient outdoor bar, and the additional seating to the side of the villa, Kaplana is able to easily entertain parties of 100 people in her backyard.
Best of all, the design layout of the backyard is ideal for both large parties and smaller, intimate gatherings.
Stunning and elegant by day, the entertaining can continue long after dusk. Custom lighting features create an elegant space to entertain long after the sun sets.
Kalpana is very pleased with her new backyard entertaining area and looks forward to hosting many event in the near future.
I thoroughly enjoyed working on this unique Palm Jumeirah landscaping renovation project.
