Sonam Kapoor took fans on a tour of her London home, where she lives with her husband, businessman Anand Ahuja. I took to Instagram to share photos from a new shoot.
The images were taken as part of a feature in the September issue of Architectural Digest. In one photo, she’s lounging on a red velvet sofa next to Knoll, in a room filled with jewel-toned decor. There are dark blue panels spanning the lower half of the room, and a gold coffee table with a pair of silver elephants resting on top. The doors are deep green and the living area is grouped by a blue-purple rug. A flower-shaped light hangs over the area, which also includes a pair of teal benches and graphic tropical forest wallpaper.
A black main door surrounded by a black fence and a black railing on the balcony above. However, the most interesting part of the entire photoshoot is the powder room. It is covered with light pink and white wallpaper. There is a gold sink beneath five matching mirrors with crystal and gold detailing. The Venetian mirror attracts all the attention.
The bedroom is identical with a large black four-poster metal bed. It also has blue wallpaper, blue ceiling, and white lamps with painted lamp shades.
Speaking of her home, Sonam said, “The first time anandahuja and I walked into our apartment, it immediately felt like home! It’s a two-and-a-half bedroom space located in Notting Hill, perfect for where we are in our lives nowadays. Seeing The space, we knew right away that rooshadshroff would bring to life a certain vision I had for the space. As usual, Rashad and I had a lot of fun collaborating together. He is extremely adept at curating the space tailored to one’s needs and individual design taste.”

“Color has been a huge requirement for me and on top of that it helped realize my vision of making a more outdoor feel indoors, rich in greens, blues, jewel tones, etc. for years, with the need to combine warm textures, fabrics and wallpaper with antique rugs and chandeliers I really wanted to strike a delicate balance between Art Nouveau and furniture that strongly reflects my Indian heritage. Being away from home can be difficult at times, and so Roshad has done an amazing job of reconciling British architecture with an Indian aesthetic and richness.While India is my soul, London is her My heart.
Sonam recently returned to India to attend her sister Rhea Kapoor’s wedding. She will then appear in the movie Blind.
