Designer Sarah Sham’s Mumbai home breathes new life into a heritage structure

While most contemporary homeowners fear over-stimulating the visual palette, Sham took inspiration from yellow, green and red patterned floors to indulge in a show of color and pattern. “With my old space, I questioned myself a lot, because I’m an interior designer and I always felt like people were just going to judge me by coming to my house,” she laughs. “In the end, my first house turned out to be really beautiful when I let myself do exactly what I wanted to do. When he came to this house, I just let myself go and went with it. A proliferation of plants infuses a sense of the outdoors into the space, complemented by curiosities Sham has collected over the years. “I have over a hundred plants in this house,” she says.” My house looks a bit like a jungle.”

Sham is also an avid art collector, with over 70 pieces in her collection, most of which are proudly displayed around her home. In the living room, a neon sign reads: “All I ever wanted is everything”, an ideology that reflects both the designer’s approach and that of her husband. “We both want the moon and the stars, and everything at once,” she laughs, “so that made a lot of sense.” In the master bedroom, a series of Wes Anderson-inspired photographs of Mumbai architecture by Kuber Shah show Sham’s deep-rooted affection for the city.
