Sneak peak into Kim Sharma’s elegant Bandra pad

Kim profile 2Actor turned grooming expert Kim Sharma likes all things opulent and elegant. And her Bandra pad reflects that. A massive chandelier in the living room adds to the grandeur of her 2500 sq ft home. A charming sit-out, a walk-in closet, eclectically designed den are some other features.

Flights of Fancy – Sapna Bhavnani’s eclectic home

Celebrity hair stylist Sapna Bhavnani’s Bandra apartment is very much like her – quirky and in your face. The bachelor pad juxtaposes rugged industrial elements with lots of greens. I recently got a tour of the eclectic space for my fortnightly feature in Hindustan Times.

The studio style apartment reflects her love for nature and ‘do it yourself,’ concept. Adorned with pieces designed and built by the stylist herself the one bedroom home is a green oasis in a concrete jungle. A mannequin adorned with creepers takes centre stage in the living room, solar lights brighten up the balcony, old shoes hold plants and books act like book shelves in this nature inspired house. A perfect and intimate space for a maverick stylist and her three cats.

Neeta Lulla to design Homes


The First Lady of Indian Fashion, Neeta Lulla, renowned for creating some of the most fashionable trousseaus for the last 28 years, has marked her foray into designing signature homes. The Aliens Group, largest luxury developers in South-India has collaborated with Lulla to design limited edition luxury homes in Hyderabad. Branded Signature Homes, as envisioned by this association, is the first of its kind concept in India by an Indian designer.

The project, Aliens Space Station is a US$ 300 million residential project in Hyderabad with 14 towers comprising premium residences. The triplex penthouses/sky villas in this project boast of a private elevator and a swimming pool inside each apartment.

Neeta Lulla will now translate her stylish vision from the fashion world to the realm of interior design. Her designs will cover four distinct and iconic themes: Vintage, Traditional, Contemporary and that will sold by invitation only.

Elaborating on her association Neeta Lulla said, “Interior spaces are a stimulating area of design and one that I am passionate about. This step feels like a natural evolution in my career. For me, a home however elaborate should be about comfort and ease. I have conveyed that vision spelling the comfort in the grandeur yet tasteful settings. Each of these luxury homes will claim its own unique style and personality

The idea is to allow a discerning buyer to buy a branded luxury home off-the-rack, the way you would buy a haute couture dress.
