Here is a brief account of what I could fetch from the conversation that took place at her studio apartment.   

As one enters your house, what’s the best thing one can notice according to you?
Me, myself...lol. Well, you should tell me what did you notice. (laughs)

Who all stay in your house? How do you maintain it?
I live alone but , yes, my family keeps visiting me often. I am fond of home maintenance and besides, I am a cleanliness freak who believes that cleanliness adds a lot of positivity in life.

Why did you chose to stay here?
I own a studio apartment in Goregaon East, Mumbai. I have shifted here two months ago. I had chosen this place as its affordable, peaceful and has a beautiful neighborhood.

Any particular theme in your house, which you have followed while decorating it?
I love simplicity. That's why i have got earthy wooden furniture. Bright colors make these furniture pieces vibrant.There are chairs, bed-sheets, pillow covers, cushions,  curtains, night lamp, floor matt and plants which add reds, blues, yellows and greens to my simple white washed walls and white tiled home. Also I have mirrors on almost every wall which not only reflect light but also reflect  few perfect images of mine from every angle....(laughs)

What are the colors you have played with on the walls?

I haven't got enough time for coloring and renovation before shifting...so i kept the white washed walls as it is...My balcony and kitchen will be renovated after rains...i would have more green plants but will keep the wall  white as i already have a lot of colors added.

Can you describe the other rooms or decor in your house?

Other rooms are  yet to be renovated.

Can you describe your washrooms, might be personal but if you can elaborate?

I have an ample big washroom with a shower area and a changing room.

What's the most cherished piece of painting or home decor item? Where did you pick it up from and why is it so special?
A hand made jhoomar made of sea shells that I had purchased during a work trip to Vizag. I had bought it quite a long time ago but haven't putting it to use any sooner. It is now hanging outside my window.

The best thing about it was that didn't get collapsed all this time while I have been shifting frequently from one rental to another, waiting for so long to finally put it to use. Eventually, this jhumar found it's place when I shifted to my own studio apartment.
