Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan's luxurious new house: From Taimur's living space to nursery
With the beginning of the new year, and Saif and Kareena's new parenthood, they are shifting to their new home after staying in Fortune Heights for 11 years.
Before mom-to-be, Kareena Kapoor delivers her second child, Saif and Kareena, finishing up their leftover work in their new house. It is at Satguru Sharan, a building next door in Bandra, Mumbai. Though we don't know how it looks, here's what the interior designer Drashini Shah told to ET times.
"Saif and Kareena's new house is an extension of sorts of the old one. They had become extremely comfortable with their house in Fortune Heights; they just didn't want to move out. So, the new house, which they should be moving into shortly, has a feel of the old pad but it also meets their new set of requirements with their second baby on the way. It has a beautiful new nursery for the baby, and Taimur's own space as he's growing up. It's a lot larger than their old house; it's more spacious with beautiful terraces, a swimming pool, outdoor areas, and open spaces that have been landscaped. It has room for everyone," Drashini said.
She also said, "They like their spaces to feel like their travel diaries. Everything that they have at home is something they have collected over time, and it has a memory or a story attached to it. Like, they love England, they like the colonial-classic style of decor. They also don't like anything that's loud. Like their Fortune Heights' home, even their new house has a library, artworks, antiques, candles, a certain kind of furniture."
Bebo and Saif are more in luxury and comfort. Drashini had designed their Fortune Heights before they moved in back at 2008-09. And by now they have grown comfortable with their old house. She said, "We go back a long time. They moved in after I completed the work on the house in Fortune Heights. It was great for the two of them. After Taimur was born, we made sure he has a nursery at home and his own little space. With their second baby on the way, we just pulled all stops and ensured that we wrap up everything in time for them to move into their new house."
She says that Bebo has been equally invested in retouching the Pataudi Palace. With that Dashini added, "Kareena has been hugely involved with the new house's decor. Even with the progressing pregnancy, she continues to step out, check out the stuff, pick up things that she likes for the place. The house is almost ready to welcome the family in."
And we cannot wait to have a glimpse of the new house.
