The beautiful and elegant Tina ‘Twinkle’ Khanna, a former lead actress herself with super hits like Baadshah with Shahrukh Khan, Mela with Aamir Khan and many other Bollywood blockbusters, is the wife of Bollywood action hunk, ‘Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar, and daughter of the great Rajesh Khanna and the ultra glamorous Dimple Kapadia.

One of the most high-end Interior Designers in India.
A knack for the right colors, textures and sketches got her going when she interned at the age of 16 with a Mumbai based architect.

She first designed a Breach Candy house in 2000, independently. There was no looking back since then. She has made news with every Bollywood home she designed.

Her sense of style and design: She was once charged with the task of refurbishing a dark foyer in a bungalow. With an inexistent structural plan, Twinkle actually risked drilling into the foyer ceiling to discover 15 feet of height. She designed the ceiling then, with a rock and metal Spanish style.

Putting it together: To cater to her style, ‘The White Window’ stocks up on artistic, creative and Twinkle’s personal preferences of lighting, décor, art, crockery, glassware, silverware, gifts etc.

Accolades: The White Window has won the prestigious Elle Décor International Design award, by the world’s leading home decor magazine Elle Décor for the best wall finishes and coverings, and the Society Interiors Award.
