Though the rest of Ranaut's home is full of vibrant colours, painted plates and quirky accessories, her closet champions shades of white. However, the glossy marble floors, which create a geometric pattern in ivory and shocking yellow, tie this space in with the aesthetic of the rest of her home. In the middle of walk-in closet sits is a small island table, again in white, with a contrasting, dark brown top surface, which holds some of her most prized accessories, including the reflector sunglasses she wore as Tanuja Trivedi in Tanu Weds Manu (2011).
On one side of the walk-in closet sits a series of ivory cupboards with sleek black handles, as well as those with translucent glass doors. If you take a closer look, you'll spot that the insides of these closets feature dark wooden racks on top, with space for Ranaut to hang her essentials.

While giving Vogue India a peek inside her walk-in closet in 2015, Kangana Ranaut picked out some of her favourites from her wardrobe. First up was a grey Burberry overcoat that she bought in London, which she loves wearing with skinny jeans, big sunnies, and a low messy bun. Next, the actor plucked out her shimmering orange Tom Ford dress which topped trending charts when she wore it for a success party for her film. Fun fact: the dress also earned a nod of approval from Beyoncé, and Ranaut shared her dismay at not being able to repeat the look, because it became so popular.
