I Redecorated My House To Give It A Full-On Desi Feel & The Result Was ‘Chak De Phatte’


My room for me has always been my safe place and comfort zone. Ever since I was in school I used to love the feeling of coming back home, snuggling in bed and reading a book or watching a cheesy Bollywood romantic movie. Secluded from everyone else, my room has always been a haven for me. And being the quintessential quirky, desi girl that I am, I wanted to redecorate my room to give it a more personal vibe so the whole desi look really went together. 

Now from Bollywood references to an ode to my first love chai, I’ve completely revamped the room to give it a desi edge.

Tu aur teri high heels ki galti, I tell you! This clock is adding that extra fun element to the room and the orange, white and pink is also bringing in a splash of colour to the place. Whoever comes to my room always sniggers when they see this wall clock.

I’m the kind of person who decorates her room with cute and quirky mugs. I’m totally a cat person and this ‘Mein-aaon’ with a kitty cat is just perfect. It looks so great on my mantlepiece and I always pick it up whenever I want to drink a hot cup of tea in bed.

Gone are the days when rugs and mats say ‘welcome’. Call your friends over and bring them in by saying, “Ghar pe koi nahi hai!” The bright red and yellow colours will add some vibrancy to your place. How cute, right!?

Nothing says Bollywood better than this iconic dialogue. I love the movie Karan Arjun and having a poster dedicated to it just takes me back to my childhood when I watched it every time it came on television. Isn’t this the most mother type of thing to say ever?!

My friends keep leaving their glasses and bottles around my room and so that my wood doesn’t get stained, coasters are essential. Yup, I’m obsessive like that. These ‘haww ji’ coasters with genda flowers just reminds me of quintessential Punjabi festivities so I had to get these, didn’t I?!

Pyaar Dosti Hai Pillow Cover

When Rahul said, “Pyaar dosti hai” and Ms. Briganza said “love is friendship” I completely melted. For me it’s absolutely true and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is my fave movie of all time, something in my room had to scream “tum nahi samjhoge Rahul, kuch kuch hota hai!” And this pillow cover is perfect for it.
