“It’s important to maintain sanity, keep busy and leverage this time of staying indoors to learn new things and explore new interests,” Jacqueline Fernandez says about life during lockdown. The 34-year-old actor, last seen in a titular role in the crime thriller Mrs. Serial Killer alongside Manoj Bajpayee, has been keeping herself busy and productive during the lockdown period, with workouts, reading sessions, and even online courses on Hindi and editing. Not too long ago, the star even shared a video of herself playing the piano in her pristine Mumbai apartment as a thank you to all the essential workers who've been risking their lives on a daily basis.
It would be safe to say that Jacqueline Fernandez’s sea-facing home in Mumbai is a millennial girl’s dream come true. With its all-white base, pretty pastel pieces and occasional pops of colour, the three-BHK space echoes the actor's bubbly personality, and was renovated by interior designer Ashiesh Shah. In an interview with Vogue India, Shah revealed, “She was away for a month, so I decided to give her home a makeover. It was my birthday gift to her.” Fernandez’s sole instruction to her friend was to make the space ‘Parisian shabby chic’. “I love French bohemian; it’s subtle and not OTT,” she explained in the same interview.Step inside Jacqueline Fernandez’s picture-perfect living room
A flamingo-pink L-shaped couch steals the show in Fernandez’s cosy living room. Upholstered by Splendour, this refurbished Good Earth sofa is topped off with green and white cushions from Splendour and Safomasi. The floor-to-ceiling windows enveloped by sheer curtains light up the bright space even more. Blue seasting along with potted plants add more colour variegation to home's palette. A long ledge placed above the main couch holds an array of vibrant trinkets—everything from colourful books to bouquets. A black and white painting of horses by Salman Khan gives a break to the pink-and-white base of the scape.
You’ll find a geometric cluster table in Jacqueline Fernandez's sun-kissed living room, perched on a black and white patterned rug. This space is perfect to hold little trinkets can candles, and to hold drinks when the actor has guests over.Check out Jacqueline Fernandez’s favourite corner at home
Off to one side of Jacqueline Fernandez's living room is a special space where the actor can unwind with a good book, or a quick workout session. While the centre of this room is bare, a white and mint green daybed with floral panelling and matching cushions rests on one side along the star's windows, accompanied by a pouffe from Pepperfry. The aesthetic here mirrors the living room’s, with sunlight streaming in and pristine white interiors making up the rest of the room. One side of this space is more busy, with a futuristic lamp, an oversized potted plant, a Tiffany-blue typewriter on a round table, chairs of different shapes and sizes, and a framed map on the wall. The other side is more minimalist and features a wooden bookcase from Urban Ladder where you'll spot Fernandez's Miss Universe Sri Lanka crown, framed family photographs and another painting by Salman Khan.
Want to know an interesting fact about this corner? This space was renovated by Gauri Khan in 2018. The designer changed up the corner by adding a quirky ladder and a wooden shelf on one wall, along with floral upholstery, and mix-and-match cushions. Another wall here features a large framed photo of a horse, more family photographs, and even newspaper cuttings. “It’s my favourite corner in the house,” Fernandez shared in an interview.Take a look inside Jacqueline Fernandez’s all-white bedroom
A grey Victorian carved bed from Manglam Arts holds the fluffy white bedding on which Fernandez, along with her oldest childhood stuffed toy, Mama Bear, snuggle up after a long day. Did you know that the white dress the actor's toy wears actually belonged to her as a baby? When she’s not with Mama Bear, Fernandez can also be found hanging out in her pristine white room with her four Persian cats—Miu Miu, Loki, Xyza, and Yoda. Wallpaper by Sabyasachi Mukherjee covers the enclosure, while a Peter Pan poster features on one of the walls of this room.You’ve definitely dreamt of a walk-in closet like Jacqueline Fernandez’s
While the rest of her home is all about soothing pastels and ivory, Jacqueline Fernandez's walk-in closet is a colour riot. A blue and white chevron wallpaper (the Qila wallpaper from Asian Paints’ Nilaya collection) is the first thing you'll notice as you step in, and then there's no missing the star's expansive collection of shoes. Rows and rows of bright-coloured footwear—from stilettos and pumps to boots juttis—and bold-hued bags of all shapes and sizes feature alongside her envy-worthy collection of clothes.Check out Jacqueline Fernandez’s pristine piano corner
Though Fernandez’s home is almost entirely ivory, her spotless white piano still manages to stand out and command attention. “I didn’t want a television in the house; it’s so time-consuming. I now want to be more constructive,” Fernandez once shared with Vogue India while talking about the instrument. The white piano comes with a matching tufted chair that sits atop a champagne rug designed by Shah for Cocoon Fine Rugs. A tall potted cactus plant breaks the rhythm of the monochrome palette of this space, along with a panel of teal wall paint in the background. The space above Fernandez's piano also acts as a countertop for various trinkets such as a gold pineapple jar from The Label Life, a bouquet from Velvet Ribbon, and a Lionel Wendt print from Jhaveri Contemporary. A guitar and a telescope stand close by, hinting at the actor’s many interests. A book ledge similar to one we spotted in the living room also features here.
