Chai @ LaxmiNiwas, the Rathod residence
Samira Rathod’s home is tucked away from the road, in Breach Candy. Trees and birds and silence fills the pathway to her ground floor residence. The long narrow corridor that the front door opens to splits the home halfway. The Living, Dining and Master Bedroom on the left and the children’s room and kitchen on the right. Giant ceilings, large windows, it seems more like a lazy Goan Villa. A balcony runs from the Living to the Dining, ensuring her labrador has many exits and entries to rush in through.
Lots of corners to sit and read in, the absence of walls in one of the rooms, graffiti walls where her children go crazy, very home like feel even with her quirky furniture lying around, the window seat in her bedroom where I sat and had chai and watched birds, the loungable sitting in the living room. The home is designed with care and attention to detail, but it doesn’t overwhelm you – it is a living, working home, and very welcoming.
