The Big Bang Theory actor Kunal Nayyar and his wife Neha Kapur Nayyar have given fans a peek inside their beautiful Los Angeles home. The actor, who plays Rajesh Koothrappali in the popular sitcom, showcased the property in an interview with Architectural Digest magazine, in which he credited his wife for turning the house into a home they want their family to enjoy for generations to come.
They moved in a month after they were married, in 2011. Architectural Digest took a tour of their home, which appears not to have been too big after all. Nayyar credits his wife, designer and former Miss India Neha Kapur Nayyar, with seeing the possibility the house held.The couple was careful to consider their decor—so careful that for six months, they didn’t have furniture.

The couple revealed that they had been house hunting for almost a year before they discovered their 5,000-square-foot hacienda, which has a muted seashell pink hue and unique triangular layout – something that particularly appealed to former Miss India Neha.

For a city boy leaving his Hollywood bachelor pad to cohabit for the first time with his new bride (Neha, who was relocating from New Delhi), this was new and rather frightening territory. An anxious Kunal wondered, “What will we do with this space?” Fortunately, he says, “Neha being very cultured and having a very good eye, she saw this vision of the place.” The previously long-distance couple had spent nearly a year seeing properties of all styles before being struck by the 1948 Spanish hacienda. Neha—a former Miss India and the designer behind luxury fashion line Hensely, which launched last fall exclusively on Moda Operandi—saw past the home’s Baroque fountains.

The house is “like a little baby,” says Neha. “It’s constantly growing.” Now, after six years and a summer renovation that involved transforming a library into a salon-like closet, taking a powder room from Parisian to jungle-y, and adding a marble wall and fireplace to their bedroom, it finally feels ready, evocative of them. Kunal couldn’t be happier with their home. “If we’re fortunate enough, until the day we die, we’re never going to sell this house,” he says. “It’s going to be in our family for generations.”
