Actor Adhyayan Suman, singer Aditya Narayan and Maqbool actress Masumeh Makhija take us around their dream home, each confessing that their bathroom is their favourite hangout place in the house.
This is my dream house. I don’t think I can dream bigger than this — it’s a three-story house and I live on the 20th floor which is also the top floor of the building. I have the sea on one side and mountains on the other. It’s a 360 degree view. My favourite place in my house is my bedroom. It’s a huge room with a beautiful balcony. My bathroom is bigger than my room in the earlier house. I am a cleanliness freak. I have got a phone in my bathtub. So I can call all my girlfriends from there (laughs). I have put life-size portraits of myself in my room and my bathroom. Both are my favourite pictures and were shot on my terrace at night.
There is a mirrored wall opposite the jacuzzi on which is reflected the waterfall just outside the bathroom. Every section of my family bungalow in Pune, is complete in itself. My bedroom and bathroom are surrounded by trees, have transparent glass windows and no curtains. My house is surrounded by trees all over. My room opens into the garden but nobody can enter the garden behind my bedroom unless he passes through my room. My bathroom is my next favourite area in the house. My dad had fixed the jacuzzi as he is an engineer himself and my mother wanted an open bathroom where you feel you are in the lap of nature. Here again, you will find trees all over with a great view, courtesy the transparent glasses. But, of course, care has been taken to ensure privacy.
My bathroom has two sofa-cum-beds, a plasma TV, a fridge, a mini bar, a Play Station 3 and is air-conditioned. We shifted to this house in 2000 and I designed the room with help from my friends. We started with the bathroom and it turned out to be so cool that for sometime, we actually started eating meals in the bathroom! My bathroom is like the eighth wonder of the world. People have stayed over in my bathroom. Trust me! Friends who’ve been kicked out of their respective by their parents, have stayed in my bathroom for days on end! It’s the best part of my house. I love my parents for letting me design it the way
