Samantha Akkineni made her debut in the Telugu film industry back in 2010 with Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Ye Maaya Chesave. Ten years later, Akkineni's name isn't just well known in the industry she first started in, but also in the world of Tamil cinema. The actor has been part of several noteworthy movies including Neethaane En Ponvasantham (2012), U Turn (2018) and Super Deluxe (2019), among others. But it was on the sets of her first project that Akkineni met Naga Chaitanya, and the duo soon began dating. After being together for eight years, the stars tied the knot in Goa as per both, Hindu and Christian customs in October 2017. Akkineni now lives with her husband and their two pet dogs, Hash Akkineni and Drogo Akkineni, in Hyderabad. Today, we're taking you through a virtual tour of the couple's gorgeous home.Samantha Akkineni's backyard doubles up as her yoga studio
Samantha Akkineni's backyard is the perfect blend of modern and classic aesthetics, with the colour white taking control of the space. You'll spot a patch of grass with comfortable lounge chairs in one corner, and a large collection of potted white plants spread all over this outdoor area. During this period of lockdown, the sprawling backyard has also become Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya's favourite place to practice yoga together. The all-white space also features a slightly enclosed area that provides shade with high ceilings, criss-crossing metal walls, white pillars, and grey tiled flooring.
Akkineni has also recently taken up gardening at home, and is the proud owner of a quickly growing white vertical garden lush with butterhead lettuce, which one can most likely spot in her backyardDon't miss Samantha Akkineni's in-house swimming pool
The most exciting feature of Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya's backyard is, of course, the duo's swimming pool. Not only is this area one of Akkineni's favourites for capturing all her at-home OOTD pictures, it also makes a great spot for her to soak in some Vitamin D with her pup.
Adding to the tranquil vibe of this serene space is the textured taupe wall in the background, on which the couple have had a pristine white Buddha statue mounted. A glass door not too far away leads inside the mansion.Have you seen Samantha Akkineni's dining area?
Designed in a completely different colour palette from her poolside area, Samantha Akkineni's dining room features warm, earthy colours and statement-making interiors. The star's dining area features grey textured walls, and a large, glossy brown marble dining table contrasted with red suede chairs. Lighting up this corner of the home is a series of low-hanging pendant lights. Look closely behind Akkineni in this post from her quarantine birthday, and you'll also spot thick floor-to-ceiling curtains, side tables decorated with vases, and a series of paintings light with spotlights in the background.
Though Samantha Akkineni's dining area seems to share the same space as her living room, the star also seems to have added a dark wood-panelled divider between the two that helps break the space up. A large flat screen TV behind the dining table further creates this distinction.Step inside Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya's serene bedroom
Her entertaining area may celebrate dark hues, but Samantha Akkineni's contemporary, all-white bedroom looks like something straight out of a millennial's Pinterest board. The hero of the star's room has got to be her large white four poster bed, which features a grey velvet headboard. Simple side tables in light wood hold minimal metal lamps with glass shades, and a quilted bench in white sits in front of ivory and grey curtains.
The minimal room is as cosy as it is pristine, and it looks like Akkineni's dogs love this spot in the house as much as she does. One of the most interesting elements of this bedroom is the flooring—while one would expect an all-white space like this one to have matching ivory floors, Samantha Akkineni and Naga Chaitanya have experimented with charcoal grey flooring instead. Matching with this palette perfectly is the edgy closet that sits in one corner of the bedroom.
