LuxeBook September -2021

A t a time when homes have assumed new meanings altogether, it only makes sense to look at them anew. In what ways can we embrace them without being bored out of our minds? Are the boundaries between home space and office space now irreversibly blurred? From successful entrepreneurs to fashion designers – all of them help us parse the many layers to these questions in this special Décor issue. We also have an incisive interview with celebrity interior designer and architect Richa Bahl who lets us in her design philosophy, decodes the pandemic consumer’s trends, and breaks down the process of designing homes for celebrities such as Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon. I’ve stepped in the editor’s shoes only for this issue and I had a phenomenal time working with the team – from understanding the beautiful restoration of Odisha’s Belgadia palace to spotlighting the creative process in designing a unique Goan home. Here’s to beautiful homes and beautiful memories in those homes with anyone and anything that means love and hope to us.
