This is the sixth post in the series – Celebrity Home Tours Week on Urban Company Homes! See the other five about Alia Bhatt, John Abraham, Kangana Ranaut, Parineeti Chopra and Hrithik Roshan’s homes here, here, here, here and here.
What would you call a house that overlooks the Arabian Sea and has a cosy pond in the middle of the living room? A house that has beautiful motifs and whose paintings scream feminism? A house where the sunlight peeps into the room through a beautiful orchard?
This might be the description of your dream house, but a reality for Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna who live here with their lovely children and their pet dog.
We give you a sneak peak into the Khiladi Kumar’s gorgeous home with budget friendly #DecorTricks from us. Excited much?
1. The 13-Part Pendant Light Installation In The Living Room
The 13 pendant light installation in the living room right above an in-built pond is the center piece of the space. Designed by Abu and Sandeep Khosla, it ornaments the room like diamond droplets and brightly lits up the room. What adds more beauty to it is the larger than life art frame in the backdrop.
#DecorTrick: The 13 pendant light installation is to die for. Looks super expensive for you? How about creating a bouquet of filament lights in the center of your living room?
2. The Luxurious Dine-In Affair
The dining area overlooking the greenery from outside is the ultimate example of a modern dining space. The dining table set with the beautiful candle centerpiece standing tall in the center has been sourced from Good Earth and complements the rustic-meets-modern tone of the dining table too. We love the embellishment of flowers in between!

#DecorTrick: The neutral tone of the dining table with the lush greenery outside the window is a match made in heaven. Don’t have big windows by your dining area? Create a shelf of houseplants in one corner of your dining space to give a pleasant feel.
3. The Larger Than Life Seating Area
Akshay Kumar & Twinkle Khanna have aced it with the use of muted tones for their seating area. The metallic coffee table is a fantastic choice for the neutral toned sofa. Notice the decor accessories in the center table which are decorated with sculpture piece, some candles of varying heights and some books — all of it in a fashion that it does not look cluttered. But guess what outshines them all? The series of art frame above the sofa, you can help but look away from the colour popping refinement. And must say, what an eye for art!
#DecorTrick: Wall paintings in your living room never fail to impress. You need not have a Haider Raza or an MF Hussain masterpiece in your living room to create the perfect impression – a locale’s artistry could also do wonders.
4. The Greenery
Akshay and Twinkle’s Juhu house opens up in a beautiful lawn that overlooks the Arabian sea. You can witness the grandeur of their abode right from its entrance that has a lush green orchard. From the drafting to the architecture, everything has been done by Twinkle, who believes in decorating her home with things that have beautiful stories.
Curiously loaded with motifs and sculpture work, a Ganesha sculpture can also be seen in the backyard welcoming a lush sanctuary amidst the urban chaos.
#DecorTrick: If your home has space for private garden, create your own kitchen garden that could not just make you feel closer to nature but also help you in your cooking.

5. The Sculpture Work
Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s home is a duplex home whose ground floor is oriented with artifacts like a baby Jesus sculpture, a Hanuman sculpture, and a Chinese digital frame.
#DecorTrick: Sculptures are a common sight to admire in Akshay Kumar’s home. 2-3 sculptures of varying heights can add the perfect vignette to your shelf or coffee table without making it look cluttered.
