#4. Neha Kapur’s Home Was Featured in Architectural Digest
Kunal Nayyar lives with his wife in Los Angeles, and their beautiful home was featured in the go-to home guide magazine Architectural Digest, in their September 2017 issue. The couple apparently searched far and wide for their perfect home, and finally settled on a 1948 Spanish Hacienda styled home in L.A.
The home is carefully curated with Indian roots and modern home decor, and Neha Kapur being a designer and all, gave their home an ethnic twist, which according to the magazine, gave you a sanctuary-like feeling when you walked in.
@kunalkarmanayyar and @nekapur spent nearly a year seeing properties of all styles across L.A. before being struck by this 1948 Spanish hacienda. Neha—a former Miss India and the designer behind luxury fashion line @Hensely_, which launched last fall exclusively on @modaoperandi—saw past the home's Baroque fountains. The façade's unique shade of pink drew her in, as did the property’s somewhat triangular shape. “In India there’s this thing called gou-mukh. It’s very auspicious if the house opens into the back like a triangle—it’s very good in Indian culture,” Neha explains. “You walked in and just felt you were in this sanctuary.” Get a look inside through the #linkinbio Photo by @monicawangphoto; text by @katromeyn

Neha Kapur took her fashion design background seriously and went on to create a luxury clothing line that reflects her style of thinking. Hensley is promoted with the caption “Embracing femininity and the individual,” and if you head over to the Instagram page, you’ll see why there is an attraction in simplicity. The couple is doing very well for themselves. With Kunal Nayyar’s net worth estimated at a whopping $45.0 million and Kapur’s clothing line doing so well, they shouldn’t have a problem raising kids, when they choose to!
