A colorful Mumbai home that’s a clever manifestation of varied personalities


For Mumbai-based architecture and interior firm PS Design, versatility is a valuable asset. So when lead architects Priyanka and Piyush Mehra were asked to redesign a 2,200-square-foot, four-bedroom Mumbai home at Lodha One World Towers in Lower Parel, they looked to their client’s multi-faceted personality. to get inspired. The result is an apartment awash in color with surprises at every turn. Sprawling bookshelves and quiet reading nooks indulge the customer’s literary passions; an extensive art collection is showcased through a carefully curated interior palette; and finally, a careful selection of moveable furniture and variable lighting allows the place to completely transform from a cozy family home to a weekend party venue.

In the lobby, a series of modern art prints from India depicting mythological deities are underpinned by blue-toned silk wallpaper and highlighted by a blue resin inlay console table and bright ikat-print ottomans.

The aesthetic of this Mumbai home blends traditional motifs with contemporary details, allowing for a curious confluence of cultures. In the lobby, visitors are greeted by a series of fine art prints from French artist A Geringer’s L’Inde Française collection, depicting Hindu deities in the India Modern style. On a blue silk wallpaper and accompanied by a console table in resin inlay and ikat printed pouffes, the painting is simple but evocative: it immediately sets the tone for the rest of the house.

The pride of the living room is the Theyyam carved wooden headdress, set against a blue-grey grid paneled backdrop, highlighted by a beige leatherette sofa, interlocking rattan coffee tables by Sunday Whites and a dynamic area rug by Jaipur Rugs.
