Décor ideas from Alia Bhatt’s home that are totally steal-worthy
She sashayed into our hearts as the sassy and stylish Shanaya from Student of The Year, and further made a space with her nuanced performances in movies such as Highway and Raazi. Alia Bhatt has come a long way and it reflects in her choice; not just in terms of scripts, but also in her aesthetic sense. One of the most successful actresses of her age, Alia has achieved a lot too soon, and is still a level-headed person who puts her moolah to good use.
One look at her sweet home and the interiors therein, and you would agree. Even though when she purchased it for its old-world charm, hoping to turn it around, it seems unbelievable the place was home to termites and rotting pipes. But she saw a cosy home in it, and together with her interior designer Richa Bahl, transformed it exactly the way she wanted.
Here are some of the delicious décor ideas that you can pick from Alia’s home and bring into your abode.
The pastel theme
The best way to create an illusion of bigger space is to use pastel shades and going minimalistic, while drenching your home in the colour of your choice. Alia’s home is painted in various shades of white, with colours popping out from wooden shelves and pastel curtains and furniture. It brings a cosy vibe to the home. You can definitely try the same.
The vintage touch
Alia had chosen and old house which needed a lot of renovation. She wanted a New York loft and Swiss chalet type interior, which would be comfortable and containing an old-world charm. You too can implement the same by going for old buildings which are more spacious than newer constructions.
The seating at the entrance
As soon as one enters Alia’s home, through the gorgeous ornated teal door, one is greeted with a pastel palette and a custom-made bench from the Raj Company. Ditching the brand, we can surely lift the idea of placing a bench with cushions at the entrance space of our house, instead of the usual shoe racks. It does create a soothing first impression and even calms you when you are back home after a chaotic day.
The modular kitchen
If you look at Alia’s kitchen, it is not a big one. You too can ape the same in your own manner, by having a clutter-free and minimalistic approach towards a modular kitchen with loads of shelves so that everything is inside and there is no unnecessary disorganization messing with your routine and mind.
Customised sofa-set and auxiliaries
Big cities usually have space constraints with respect to houses. Nevertheless, you can always experiment with spaces. A small drawing room is an example of the same, where, like Alia you can customize a small sofa set, with a wooden box-like table in the middle. You can even invest into a small chandelier lamp which will add an extra aura to the space.
The wooden ceiling
There is a charm to wooden ceilings, an old-world aura about those. Coupled with the pastel theme of Alia’s house, these do seem magical. You too can try the same with your home.
The Pendant lights
Instead of the usual bulbs and tubelights, you can even invest in pendant lights like Alia did. These are hanging lights with light diffusing out like a lamp, creating a magical effect in the process.
This one is for those who are totally obsessed with the beverage. Alia and her sister Shaheen are too fond of tea and hence have a corner dedicated for the same. You too can incorporate it in your house, depending on the beverage of your choice. Just a few shelves to hold the same, a bar counter-style table, and perched up bar stools.
This is one of the most beautiful corners that you can recreate for your home. Choose the corner with a window and get a wall-size shelf in-built there. Add a low sofa, throw in a few cushions, and add a lamp to the equation. You can even add two bean bags for that extra comfortable vibe. You will have a cosy book corner ready, where you can even fall asleep dreaming of the alternate universe you read about.
Unlike many film stars, Alia’s home is the one which truly exudes a simplicity and old-world vibe, in complete contrast to the glamour world she belongs to. You can totally pull off and recreate the décor from this beautiful and cosy star abode.
However, fret not for Mansionly, with all its expert interior professionals can transform your home and give you the star-vibe you crave, in your own custom-style.
