Step inside 6 celeb homes we can't stop swooning over
Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and more stars show off their lavish homes on Instagram. See all the photos.
Some of the biggest celebrities have given fans an intimate glimpse into their lives via social media. Thanks to Instagram, with a click of a button, we know now what the stars eat, what they drink, and — most important — how they decorate their homes. From Jalsa, the envy-inducing Mumbai bungalow of the Bachchan family to actor Sidharth Malhotra's newly-renovated bachelor pad in Mumbai to actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan's artsy Mumbai apartment, here are a few instances when famous Bollywood folks inadvertently gave a peek into the privacy of their not-so-humble homes via social media.
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor
Since their wedding in 2015, actor Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput Kapoor have easily become one of the country's most-loved Bollywood couples. The couple finds bliss in a family-friendly sea-facing home in Mumbai with modern-meets-traditional interiors. The Kabir Singh actor and his wife share the home with their two children, 10-month-old son Zain and daughter Misha, who turns 3 in August. Most of Shahid and Mira's living room is decked out in the classic black and white hues and accented with large mirrors and plush sofas. The couple's preference for dark tones is quite obvious from their home decor. We spotted a whole wall of polaroids from the couple's get-togethers with friends and family — they seem to like pinning the candid moments on their bedroom wall. Shahid and Mira's verandah is a serene mix of modern and natural elements. The family loves celebrating special occasions or enjoying sunsets together on their lawn that overlooks the sea.

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan
When we say actor Saif Ali Khan’s home in Mumbai might be even more glamorous than wife Kareena Kapoor Khan’s style, we're hardly exaggerating. Although their house is the epitome of pristine, honestly, we can’t get enough of Saif and Kareena’s fondness for bright, airy colours and eclectic prints and art pieces. Featuring plenty of house plants, glass windows, a warm narrow corridor filled with photos and artworks, Saif and Kareena’s Instagram-worthy abode is seriously worth lusting over. A few things are clear from the pictures of their home: The couple loves their books and art. A stylish outfit calls for a stylish place to pose, and Kareena often uses the simple artwork and floor-to-ceiling bookshelf that is crammed full of reading material and more art as the perfect backdrop to show off her designer looks. Scroll through for a closer look at Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s vibrant, warm and relaxed home, where they live with their two-and-a-half-year-old son Taimur Ali Khan:
Actor Sidharth Malhotra's home redefines traditions. Celebrity interior designer Gauri Khan carefully designed Sidharth's Mumbai apartment with traces of a lavish aesthetic all around. The bachelor pad is a careful curation of minimalism with an accent of majesty: From a dining area with ceiling-to-floor windows that afford stunning views of Mumbai to a wall with iconic film posters to a tall mirror with a dramatic wooden framing to glamorous lamps to walnut chest table and intricately-carved chairs. Here are some inside photos of Sidharth Malhotra’s impressive bachelor pad designed by Gauri Khan:
Amitabh Bachchan's sprawling bungalow, Jalsa, in Mumbai is layered with personal touches — stacks of books, chandeliers and lots of paintings. The veteran actor resides there with wife Jaya, son Abhishek, daughter-in-law Aishwarya and granddaughter Aaradhya. Complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, mirrored shelves, fresh flowers, a good helping of warm, earthy stone and wood to balance out the otherwise clean, modern living space, the property in Juhu, Mumbai is as glamorous as you’d expect. Throughout the light-filled space, robust design elements, like brawny tables and dark colour palettes keep company with graceful, softer gestures, whether it be the jewellery-like lights or vintage brass sculptures. Vivid paintings and stacked books are two intriguing and eccentric focal points of the house. Scroll down for a look inside the Bachchan family's inviting Mumbai home:
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli
After their dreamy Tuscan wedding, actor Anushka Sharma and cricketer Virat Kohli moved into a sea-facing apartment in one of Mumbai's prime residential locations, Worli. The couple, popularly known as Virushka, are one of the country's favourite celebrity couples. On Diwali last year, the It-couple shared an elegant portrait in their traditional garb against the backdrop of their brightly-lit home in Mumbai. A look at their Instagram accounts makes clear that throughout their minimal yet cosy abode, robust design elements are balanced with graceful, softer gestures, from the jewellery-like lights suspended above a balcony with rustic wooden flooring or massive mirrors whimsically offsetting a lush dark green velvet sofa in airy, sunlit rooms. Printed cushions and matching throws add a cute, personal touch. Step inside Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's urban living space with wooden floors, beamed ceilings, and expansive windows:
What makes Katrina Kaif's apartment in Mumbai so unique is its boho, 'anything goes' aesthetic. Think mixed prints and busy paintings in earthy hues paired with white-washed wooden walls. Situated in Andheri West, Katrina's home follows a carefree aesthetic with fun decor pieces thrown together. This isn't a fussy apartment with cold colours and sleek, modern pieces; it's a comforting sanctuary where the star can let her hair down. One of the most interesting corners of Kaif's living room features stacks of books sitting alongside carved wooden candle stands and colourful cabinets, all with a distressed finish that gives them the appearance of antiques picked up during her travels. An equally weathered-looking set of shelves display the many awards Katrina Kaif has earned during her career. Light wooden flooring and mini mirrors make the area look larger. From colourful prints on a multi-coloured couch with embellished cushions, wooden furniture with geometric print upholstery, exotic animal figurines and a spiralling staircase, all kissed with warm yellow lighting, Katrina's apartment is a bohemian haven with hard-to-recreate details.
