Brimming with light and life, Sneha Singhi Upadhaya’s home in Kolkata is an extension of her family’s warm and affable personalities. The renowned chef reached out to Essajees Atelier to conceptualise the interiors of her new apartment, a 6200 sq ft home in the Ballygunge area of Kolkata. “We received a message on our Instagram account from someone in Kolkata to do the interiors for their new home. A few days later the client, Sneha, came to Bombay and we got along like a house on fire. She was getting married and was going to move into this apartment after their wedding.
