Nargis Fakhri: My house reflects my bohemian personality

Nargis Fakhri opens up about how she decorated her house

Nargis Fakhri is a gypsy at heart but that doesn’t mean she is happy to live in a tent or a shack on the beach. She is very clear about how her living space should be. The actress is passionate about interior decoration, loves reading up on it and her home decor reflects her personality. In fact, she did thorough research, before doing up her own house in Mumbai.

Describing her taste in art and decor as bohemian, she says, “I have been all over the world. I have experienced different cultures too. Naturally, my taste in decor reflects a lot of that.” She is particularly drawn towards wood and anything rustic. “I love wooden things. I don’t follow a particular religion. I am a very spiritual person. You will see a lot of Buddha and Ganesha idols in my house, though. I am very attached to anything that represents spirituality or a higher being. I pick up a lot of stuff whenever I am traveling,” she says.

She adds, “I have never had anyone ask me to decorate their house, but I ended up decorating my own. I was living here for a year. I decided to paint the wall and get some furniture. I went online, I looked at magazines, did as much reading as I could and what appealed to me most was the more bohemian, earthy sort of stuff. I guess it’s also because that’s how I am as a person. I also look for an ambience that is peaceful, so I am drawn to whatever can bring that sense of calm. I read up on colours and the effect they can have on your mood and used that in my space.”

Being a social media addict, Nargis is also a frequent tweeter. When asked if she would put out tips and DIY (do-it-yourself) ideas to her followers on the microblogging site she says, “I think that’s a great idea. I would love to do something on those lines!”
