7 home decor ideas to steal from Katrina, Alia and other stars

Turn your balcony into a garden like Anushka and Katrina

By ELLE team  November 17th, 2017

Other than having the budget-proof wardrobes and the frequent flier miles of your dreams, there’s another aspirational asset these A-list stars can claim as their own. Tastefully done-up homes — crafted by the country’s top interior designers — that reflect their individual identities. While Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma’s mini-gardens in their city apartments will make you want to grow your own vegetables, Priyanka Chopra’s NYC penthouse is the perfect example of modern luxury décor. Some of these homes boast  of neat and minimal aesthetics, with a restricted colour palette, while others like to bring in their off-beat taste with a kaleidoscope of colours, art and other vintage elements.

If you’re about to redo your apartment or are planning to move into a new one, here are some important décor tips you can take from your favourite celebrities. 

Katrina Kaif’s balcony garden

Katrina Kaif endorses all things healthy and it begins from the vicinity of her home. The Bollywood beauty has managed to create her own balcony garden in her house, where she grows organic vegetables. Now that’s a smart distribution of space. Waking up to your own mini-farm a few floors above the hustle and bustle of the city ? Yes please!

Alia Bhatt recently moved out of her parents’ home, along with older sister Shaheen, into a home that resonated with her personality. The young star has incorporated a lot of fun elements in her sunlit home, like this wall of mirrors that’s a fun reinterpretation of your traditional photo wall. While the mirrors give the illusion of a larger living space, the white frames add an elegant touch.       

Jacqueline Fernandez’s cosy alcove

If you’ve had a chance to see Jacqueline’s house through her Instagram handle, you know it speaks of serenity. With an all-white theme and plenty of bright sunlight, the ambience is quaint and peaceful. The actress has turned one corner of her home into a cosy alcove, completed with indoor plants, cushioned seating and tonnes of throw pillows, where she’s often seen having breakfast on her tray table. It’s the perfect space to read a book, scroll through your Instagram or curl up with your cat, just like Jacqueline does.

Rhea Kapoor does not limit her creative expertise to fashion; you can see traces of her personal style even in her luxurious house. The superstylist switches out the traditional gargantuan flower vases for delicate test tubes that each contain a single stem, making for the perfect dinner setting. You’ll also notice the light installation in the photo above, which makes for the perfect party ice-breaker.

Priyanka Chopra’s personalised linen

Priyanka Chopra has New York’s spectacular skyline as a view from her window, if that’s not #homegoals what is? Priyanka’s posh New York apartment will get you envious and how. The Quantico actress also has her name embroidered on her personalised linen, including on sequinned cushions that a fan apparently gifted her. Now isn’t that a great idea to steal for your bedroom?

Dia Mirza’s upcycled furniture

Dia has often spoken about the importance of a maintaining a healthy environment while living in an urban jungle. She does her bit by making her home sustainable in every way she can. Her balcony is a mini garden with water and food holders for birds; it’s her idea of co-existing with the innocent flying creatures. All her furniture is upcycled from old wood, and her kitchen has ceramic jars instead of plastic. The actress has created her own piece of heaven in this metropolitan city. 

Anushka Sharma’s balcony garden

Anushka Sharma is another celebrity who believes in living clean and green. The actress spends her down time nurturing her home garden with her father. Creating a space dedicated to growing organic produce in your city apartment is a smart move everyone should learn from these celebrities. Also, the luscious green view will help you stay calm and reduce day-to-day stress.
