The charming abode (Celebrity home tour of Irrfan Khan & Sutapa)

In our celebrity home tour segment, get whisked away as we step in to a home with oodles of character and expertly balanced interiors.  The impressive look has been achieved in Actor Irrfan Khan's new home, by infusing and pairing the charming elements of unique and timeless accessories. The actor, who has already created his mark in Bollywood & Hollywood, is now all set to woo away his fans as a passionate and classic home owner to this beautiful apartment which is a brief respite from the busy “Mumbai” life.
 
The brightly hued entrance is a jumping off point in the apartment where color plays the key role and juxtaposition of new and old makes you thoroughly smitten. Frames and carved panels are sourced from a craft heavy region of Rajasthan, whereas the artefacts on the wall are from the private collection of the Khan couple.

Shabnam Gupta, the head honcho at Peacock Life Design, who designed the interiors, has taken deliberate care for each and every nook. The spacious living room is suffused in natural light. And the pond & swing in the middle of the living room are not easy to miss as they both were ticked off as ‘MUST’ in the home. Cute and quaint use of ‘charpoys’ are brought back to life here with a modern avatar. Strategically placed frames, plates and urns are the couple’s private collection.


The Khan’s private chamber is kept minimal choosing the right accessories to make the maximum impact. The floral motif and Gond art on the wall is done by the in-house artists of Peacock Life Design. Khan had developed an ‘eye’ for old things since long and these rare and vintage finds of chair, rug and stand in the room are  from Irrfan and his wife Sutapa’s personal collection.
I, unflinchingly, fell in love with the indispensable look in Khan's home, which describes how brilliantly they have bring together old and new. Head straight to the link here to read and view more. Until we meet again, stay connected, toodles!

  3. These wide open spaces must have been so great to work with, they really let the light in and emphasise the beauty of the interior! I love the injections of turquoise and blue throughout.
