Without spending too much moolah at that?

All you need is a little bit of imagination and a dollop of creativity. And you could have the home you always dreamed of!

Enter Namrata Barua.

Known for her oomph and chutzpah as a model, Namrata was a veejay for B4U TV and featured in the film Rules: Pyar Ka Superhit Formula.

She is also a trained interior architect.

Her home store, The Couch Potato, in Mumbai's northwestern suburb of Bandra, stocks artifacts and accessories in cane, bamboo and wood among others.

Namrata offers some easy, quick-fix ideas that can transform your living room completely.
