The Hush Post: In a recent episode of Asian paints ‘ Where the heart is’ one of the recent homes featured was that of Bollywood actor Radhika Apte and her husband Benedict Taylor. It is like a ordinary home with lots of ideation, borrowed concepts though with an indigenous feel, and inordinary elements in it like, vintage furniture which reminds her of people like her grandma, her mother. There is a lot of greenery inside her home, lots of light and different shades of different colours like blue, yellow, white. The doors are painted with different colours to make up for her idea of painting fan wings, an idea which she borrowed from her teacher.
Each corner of her house has a story. “Benedict’ s better at imagining what the house could be turned into. I’m better at turning it into that thing,” she said , with both of them creating their own little ecosystem.
In addition to all the customary rooms, she has a tiny little ‘ make-up’ room. “This is where I get my hair and make-up done for some events or look tests or auditions and what not.
