Project Living

Royal Reservation is back with a trunkful of royal inspiration to transform the way you live. Inspired by royalty, and created by our design partner Architectural Digest, we create contemporary spaces inspired by the kings and queens of style.

Trade your queen sized bed for a custom made boudoir that will bring out the princess in you, order yards of ‘ikkat’ that you splash all over your walls, turn around a dusty flea market find into a showcase fit for vintage bone china, learn to cook a mock meat dish that will impress the Nawabs and assume just the right body language as you sit for a portrait taken in your own home. All that and more on the new season of Royal Reservation – Project Living.
