11. Call of natureA heavenly rippled effect draws all the attention to this abundant water feature, hosted by a Bahrain villa designed by Hyderabad-based Moriq. Overarched by whisper-thin wire chandeliers and pinnacled by a lush spotlit tree, the waterbody dominates as the hero piece.
This space, designed by Moriq Interiors & Design Consultants exudes drama with the atrium recreating an oasis, complete with a skylight that floods the space with natural light. The pool of water and the plants give a sense of being outdoors.
