Bring the grandiose of tinsel town home

The glamour and glitz of the world of cinema has dazzled and influenced Indians since time immemorial.

In fact, we have temples dedicated to some of these celluloid stars too. “The allure of cinema is enduring in this country. So, this bar set-up is dedicated to all movie buffs,” offers the stylist.

Pulsating in pillar-red, the show-stopper, here, is the star-studded acrylic wall — featuring icons such as Rajnikanth, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson — that looks just as impactful as a 70-mm screen. It's a perfect way to get your favourite celebrities home. “The wall becomes a huge canvas that you can play with. You can add a frame to highlight your favourite star, such as the matte-gold ornate one that outlines Jackson's poster; subtle yet effective,” adds the stylist.

The sea-green, recycled-wood furniture offers a nice rustic counterpoint to this otherwise high-spirited decor. In this setting for four (two would work just as well), the furniture arrangement has been kept tight.

The accessories have been kept to a minimum, to let the backdrop to the talking. An oversized, fibreglass bulb lends soft lighting, while a transparent glass vase, made hip with balloons and tiny fairy lights squeezed between them, adds more glamour.
