Anusree Nair, My Home.
That name board says everything about Malayalam actor Anusree. It proclaims her space, her overwhelming affection for her home, sweet home.
But could there be more to this tale of a sweet home than we would infer?

Anusree first bought a flat in Kochi. It was after six or seven years that Anusree made this priceless abode her new home, sweet home.
But finding a name for such a prized possession wasn’t an easy task for the versatile Malayalam actor. While Anusree was moving heaven and earth to furnish the new love of her life, it occurred to her that “ente veedu,” or my home, was the most used words during her conversations, perhaps hinting at the affection the actor has for her home. Like, the tiling of 'my home' is over, the kitchen of 'my home' has been set and so on.

It was a friend of Anusree's friend who came up with this unique suggestion: As you always refer to it as 'ente veedu', why not name it so? So that is how Anusree Nair, Ente Veedu happened.

This is a villa project, and hence Anusree decided to focus on making the interiors awesome. A blend of Western and traditional features was the apt consideration. Ceekay interiors, Kottayam, chipped in with inputs.

The main door of Ente veedu takes you to the drawing room, shaped in a semi-open style. That ensures privacy as well as adequate space. Customised furniture decked in floral design enlivens the living room, which also carves a space for poojas-her prayer room. That is where the ‘Ganapati fan’ in Anusree comes to the fore, she admits. A slew of small Ganapati idols adorn her house.

There is a separate dining area and dining table, but Anusree relishes the breakfast counter for her early delicacies. When friends drop in, they savour food watching TV on the upper floor. This means the dining area does not get the due for not even 10 days a month.

But that doesn’t mean she cares less about the dining space. Highlighter paint was deployed to make the area 'colourful'. The dining table can also be moved so that in case of a photo shoot, it become a nice backdrop, a good frame.

“What my Insta followers demanded the most were photos in the sitting space below the stairs,” she confessed. Bedecked there, are idols collected over 4-5 years, including an elephant horn. “Please note that is made of fibre,” she says cautiously.

Anusree can’t satisfy herself without trumpeting the glory of her kitchen, which, she says, is the most beautiful space in her home.

The kitchen cabinet is themed on mint green, reflecting her classy choices. The designer wall tiles add more pomp to the mint green hue. The wash area is brightened up by designer tiles and warm-tone lights.

Glass and wood handrails uplift the sprawling beauty of the stairs adorning Anusree’s marvellous home, with elegant walls getting a texture paint coating to rev it up.

And all this is an apt setting to guide you to Anusree’s wall of fame–which she calls photo wall–where photographs of her dear and near are neatly arranged.

Friends and my family occupy all the slots here, says she. These are people who have known her for eons. These are people who would spot even a miss of her heartbeat without asking anything. Such is the affection that Anusree says she ceases to exist without the people on the photo wall.

These images bring a treasure trove of positive energy to the home, she says. No wonder, an entire wall is dedicated to her loved ones. The living room upstairs is her favourite hangout with friends, and hence there you may spot some stains in furniture et al.

She has three bedrooms, including one downstairs. Anusree’s bedroom upstairs has been given an Ash white aura. Dressingroom is an accompaniment. Decors and dream catchers are the USPs of the bedroom.
A guest room also finds its way in the upstairs.
