Delhi home interior design: Rajee Sood

Rajee’s fabulous home reveals why she has become one of India’s most popular bloggers and secured her credentials as a stylist. Check out her blog.

You may have had a sneak preview when we ran our stylish home contest, but here she takes you inside her world of design and decor and delights you with her passion for life, reflected in every corner of her home.

I am an interior designer by profession. After following my husband around for a few years, and then being a stay-at-home mom, I am now quite ready to get back to work.

Delhi home interior design

We bought our apartment about a year and a half ago, and honestly speaking, because we moved in the very second day of possession, and having moved to a new city, it has taken us time to settle in. We also did not get the opportunity to do much, in terms of major changes in design.

Nevertheless, it is a home filled with things we have acquired over the last eleven years and many which have been passed down to us from both sides of the family.

The one thing that never changes in any of our homes is that I don’t believe in tucking things away in the cupboard.

So if we have a hobby, a passion, or if we collect something – it is displayed in the house. It makes the home about us and very comfortable too.

The armless chairs are family pieces, my husband’s paternal grandparents wanted us to have them as a keepsake.

The art on the wall is an assorted collection. There is a little frame with an orange spot like art work. That is a piece called Melting Point by Sheila Makhijani. The big red painting on the wall, behind the chairs, is the work of a self-taught artist called Rajee Sood.

The lady in a blue saree is a lithograph of Thakur Singh’s works.

The other pieces in gold frames are museum prints of the Grand Master, Chugtai M.A.R. Next to them is another abstract piece in vivid colours. That is the work of my daughter when she was a year and a half, dabbling around with all the colours of the rainbow.

The leather saddle stools were bought by my husband from a leather store in Delhi. These days, they give company to my coffee table and make the size of pieces in the center of the room look more proportionate.

The main sofa was designed by Vaderas in Defence Colony. The oriental side-tables and coffee table are pieces designed by me and made by my carpenters in Mehrauli.

The green armchairs were picked up at a store called Uberois . It used to be in the Ghitorni market ,but they shut shop and I lost a great store which had furniture of remarkable craftsmanship.

The lamp bases were a find at an export shop in one of Delhi’s quaint little markets. I loved the architectural feel of the bases. They were rewired for me and the shades were designed by Kapoor Lamps in Gurgaon.

I definitely enjoy mix and match, co-ordinating pieces, and layering with textures. Another favourite design feature I love to use is to bring in the architectural elements.

It is interesting because of the unpredictability of what you assume should be there and the surprise of what you see. it keeps the intrigue alive in the design.
