Sonakshi Sinha’s new artistic abode is a dreamy space. Clean lines, rich textures and geometric shapes filled with restful spaces thanks to interior designer Rupin Suchak. Sonakshi Sinha, who resides with her parents and brothers in their bungalow Ramayan in Juhu, has got the top floor redesigned for herself. Art Director and Interior Designer Rupin Suchak, who has earlier done up Alia Bhatt’s office space worked on Sonakshi’s new pad which is an ultra-minimalistic and functional space.
Talking about the theme and design of the house, Rupin said, “The foundation of the space is minimalistic and clean. Airy palettes through rich textures and geometric shapes, where every piece of furniture is a statement piece. Sonakshi’s artistic instincts have been carefully extended as an element of design in the entire space. It’s a beautiful, super cozy space with an accommodating vibe. The entire space has turned out very close to my heart. The space stands out in its entirety. Nonetheless, there is an art deco clubbed with a modern vibrant pop art entrance that leads to the living room. It’s my favourite piece and the artistic splash of colours used here offer that extra bold zing and pop that relates to Sonakshi’s Dabangg personality.”
Speaking about the overhaul, Sonakshi said, “I’m sure everyone who lives with family would understand this, I was craving for my own space. Of course I have always had a room to myself and all the privacy in the world but really setting up a full floor just for myself is a first and has been an indulgence. I had a very clear imagery of my apartment and Rupin brought it to reality in a heartbeat. In fact all through the lockdown I have been going through websites and checking out pictures, referencing and researching. When I walked into the apartment after it was done, it felt as if I have been living in it for ages now, it has shaped up on-point.”
Explaining the brief that was given by Sonakshi to develop the place, Rupin adds, “There’s no better place to begin your quest for decor ideas than scrolling through the feeds of inspiring interior designers. We did that and locked a few super light and feel good vibe references. I am always on for clean lines and rich textures, interiors that are swathed in milky palettes, intricate patterns, and geometric shapes. She wanted more earthy tones abound in soft linens and
wood with a hint of pastels. We followed it to the T. Her brief was simple- anything that’s strikingly artistic and had a feel good vibe to it.”
Interestingly, Sonakshi was pretty hands on when it came to designing, “It’s her space. She has been involved from the very first call she made to me. We had several rendezvous. Every piece of furniture and corner has been personally approved by her and then incorporated. It’s always a dream to have an artistic client like her,” adds Rupin.
But what is a house without something that has a special memory attached? Detailing whether Sonakshi’s newly designed pad features anything like this Rupin continued, “A couple of them- the main entrance door, the lift door, the bar. That extra bit of neon that highlights the bar space… And the wash treatment art on the spot wall of the bedroom. All have some craziness and fun happening all around.”
Rupin also shared a video of Sonakshi on his Instagram talking about her new place:
