Ac­tor Raima Sen (above) is on cloud nine, as she has just moved into her new house — a seafac­ing apart­ment in Juhu, Mum­bai. More than buy­ing the new pad, she’s happy that she got to live her pas­sion of be­ing an in­te­rior de­signer while do­ing up the en­tire house by her­self with ideas from her sis­ter and mother, ac­tors Riya Sen and Moon Moon Sen, re­spec­tively.

“I al­ways wanted to have my own house, where I would take care of the in­te­ri­ors en­tirely. A house turns into a home only when you have your fam­ily along with you. The home feels pos­i­tive with much warmth and peace,” says Raima, who has bought the flat in the same build­ing, where her mother lives — the per­son she is ex­tremely close to. In­ter­est­ingly, Raima has looked af­ter her new house from scratch and put much ef­fort into mak­ing this her dream abode. Shar­ing her thoughts that went behind de­cid­ing the decor and colour of the house, Raima says, “I’ve kept it sim­ple and el­e­gant. It’s all white. It’s a sea-fac­ing house with huge win­dows that make it ap­pear more spa­cious. Also, the light­ing for each room is dif­fer­ent, which makes it look unique.” The ac­tor has picked up an­tique ob­jects to adorn her house from cities such us Kolkata and Delhi.” We pick up things like paint­ings, fans, sofa, when­ever my par­ents or I travel,” she adds.

Ask her about her favourite cor­ner in the house, and prompt comes her re­ply, “My sea-fac­ing room. I love to sit and re­lax on my favourite arm chair and read. There is also an­other den, where I can spend time watch­ing movies, back to back.”
