India Today - - COVER STORY -

A trained in­te­rior de­signer, Anushree Jhun­jhun­wala, 33, has re­frained from a ca­reer in her field. How­ever, when she moved into her new home with her hus­band Anudeep Jhun­jhun­wala, 34, and two kids, she put her heart and soul in fash­ion­ing a beau­ti­ful space for her fam­ily.

How­ever, the Jhun­jhun­walas' six-year-old daugh­ter Div­ina, and three-year-old son Shivang, clearly have the best rooms in the house. The ca­sual play­room packs in a play-in unit, mod­elled on a beach house, com­plete with a bunk bed and stor­age units on the side, a fun cab­i­net stud­ded with carved let­ters of the al­pha­bet and day-bed strewn with sailor-themed cush­ions. The bed­room, livened up with colour­ful pen­nants, dream catch­ers, porce­lain dolls from Aus­tria, a princess crown wall dé­cor, fairy­tale chan­de­lier and fan­tasy photo frames lend a dis­tinctly dreamy air. “We have tried to move away from stereo­types by keep­ing it un­der­stated and stick­ing to pas­tels, in­stead of bright colours usu­ally as­so­ci­ated with kids’ rooms,” says Anushree. Spe­cial Sou­venirs A lim­ited edi­tion se­ries of bronze fig­urines from Italy that de­pict the four el­e­ments of na­ture sit on the con­sole in the ca­sual din­ing area, while a pure sil­ver vin­tage car with a shiny leather hood that Anushree in­her­ited from her father en­joys a glory spot in the liv­ing.
