ndian playback singer Tulsi Kumar’s home is as flamboyant as her singing style. Spread across a sprawling 6,000 sq. ft. area in New Delhi, the residence has been designed by architect and interior designer Archana Aggarwal of Architects India. Ask Tulsi about the kind of a home she was looking for and she informs, “My husband Hitesh wanted a cosy home which is centrally located, so he ended up choosing Greater Kailash as it’s close to both our workplaces.” Adding on to how the plans and designs were implemented, she mentions, “I have a great tuning with Archana as she completely understands my taste, my love and passion for music and, ultimately, my religious and spiritual nature. All these aspects are wellreflected in various elements of my home.”
As you step out of the elevator on the first floor, you will see that the entire welcome area is personalised. A marble Lord Ganesha idol is placed on the top of a golden console on the left side, whereas a small waiting area consisting of a high-back, orange chair and side-table with diyas has been created on the right side. “The entry to the home has been designed keeping both our tastes in mind. We have a customised nameplate which has a warm welcome message written over it. The entry also has the concept of budding flower set within a golden frame depicting how a bud matures and blossoms into a flower. This was designed keeping in mind the growth and prosperity, we received as we moved into this place after our wedding,” shares Tulsi.
