With the trained eye of an architect, Shalini Misra strives to develop spaces in a sensual, timeless and luxurious style

Before finishing her MSc degree in architecture at UCL Bartlett in London, London-based designer Shalini Misra also had researched construction at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburg and studied urban planning at Columbia New York.

Such diverse studies have endowed her with a deep-rooted understanding of volumes of spaces.  "I am filled with joy when standing in an empty space, beginning to see designs form around me," says Misra.


Misra is on the Tate’s SAAC committee which acquires art from South Asia and regularly attends art shows such as Frieze in London and Art Basel

The interior architect is constantly learning from nature, which is her biggest inspiration. Misra also uses works of leading artists and galleries from around the world, handpicking unique pieces to complement her designs.


In many of her projects, surprising bursts of colour awaken her monochromatic palette

Along with highlighting the importance of deriving the right concept for each project and to understand the need of the client, proposing the right mood to suit their lifestyle is the key essence of her work. Because of this, she works on both residential and commercial projects, infusing each with a fresh take on interior design while remaining true to the brief.


Her love of travel and ability to absorb different cultural designs have helped her to create exclusive and eye-catching high-end interiors

Misra has a passion for textures and all that is tactile, particularly crisp cottons, soft laundered linens, silks, faux furs, cashmere and leathers. Soft glow candles set the mood in many of her projects and surprising bursts of colour awaken her monochromatic palette.
