Mumbai: Kriti Sanon wants to decorate her Lokhandwala home and there are reports that she has signed interior decorator Priyanka Mehra for the same. Interestingly, Priyanka had done the interior for Sushant Singh Rajput’s house, a sprawling Malad apartment, in 2013. And, apparently, Sushant has recommended her name to Kriti.
Kriti had purchased her apartment in 2014 and wanted the renovation to be a start-to-finish job. Priyanka says to Mumbai Mirror that, “We consciously stayed away from feminine stereotypes like pink and similar colour palettes. It is a fun space with bright colours, chic and cool, aligning with Kriti’s brief.” Priyanka adds that the bedroom was given a rustic look with antique-style wallpaper; the bathroom got a face-lift with sea-green patterned flooring.
“To make room for Kriti’s knick knacks from her travels, we added a partition in her living room with shelves. She loves picking up souvenirs from shooting locations and we made sure she has ample space to showcase them. In fact, she had kept sharing pictures of newer memorabilia while we were doing up the place. We added a classic touch to her living room with a bright blue door against a brown wall as an element of surprise,” Priyanka further told Mumbai Mirror.
Kriti’s favourite space is her floor to ceiling sofa wall-lined with photographs, reminiscent of Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s Bandra residence, where rare pictures adorn the walls of the living room and the adjoining passage. “Kriti has a close-knit family. I also interacted with her mother for the photographs. Kriti was clear that Nupur’s opinions held equal importance in the designing,” Priyanka added to Mumbai Mirror.
Priyanka has also designed the homes of actors Kushal Tandon, Monica Bedi and singer Abhijeet Sawant.
