Dinesh Karthik and Dipika Pallikal Karthik’s home

Dinesh Karthik is an Indian wicket-keeper-batsman who made his debut for the Indian cricket team in 2004. He has also been the captain of the Indian Premier League team, Kolkata Knight Riders. Dipika Pallikal Karthik is an Indian professional squash player. She is the first Indian to break into the top 10 in the PSA Women’s rankings.

In August 2015, Dinesh Karthik married Indian squash player Dipika Pallikal. The India squash player herself hails from Tamil Nadu and is the daughter of former Indian women’s cricketer Susan Itticheria.

House is the coziest place ever & nothing can beat it. It is rightly said, “Home is where the heart is.” Even the couple’s house is so & you will feel like going and staying there right away. Their home in Chennai is their first-ever built piece-by-piece together as a couple. They were highly unsure if they could afford such a house, but in the end, they worked hard towards achieving it.

The couple describes this as the home that welcomed them to the heart of the city of Chennai. “After living in a couple of other places, this house is a dream home for both of us,” Dipika says. They share the roof with their year-old pooch – “our first born” – who happens to be just as much a sport as her parents.

Their large living room welcomes you with a vivid yellow painting that rests just above the main seating area. It gives you an idea of their eclectic tastes and a very personal approach to designing the home. “The one thing I really wanted to stand out in my living room was a painting,” explains Dipika.

“We didn’t buy things after planning. We just picked whatever we liked and put it together in the home,” she adds.

The couple’s dynamism in the way they’ve furnished their home is akin to their versatility in their respective arenas. Dipika tells us about how she remodeled her dining table to salvage it from the damage it suffered in transit. The result? A striking table with a granite top that reflects the specially-fitted lights above.

Spacious Living RoomThe yellow painting anchors the spacious living room.

Dinesh Karthik’s favourite space in the home is the lounge area that has a flat-screen TV and the most comfortable couch. “If I am too tired I can just sleep here while watching TV,” he says. The well-lit area offers ample natural light in the day and is illuminated at night with the combination of table lamps and embedded ceiling lamps.
As for Dipika, the snug bedroom is her spot to cut loose, where she spends her free time on her gaming console. Overall, the house is a beautiful paradise, with a lavish and spacious living room, expensive furniture, bedrooms, terrace, playing space and also has an exclusive space filled with their proud sporting achievements and playing equipment.
Watch the duo take you on a tour down their beautiful abode which they call home, where the heart is:

The most fascinating corner of their home is the cabinet where the couple stores their kits. This is where Dinesh Karthik stashes away his collection of bats and cricketing gear, and Dipika Pallikal stores her squash kit and elaborate collection of shoes.
