When designing a space, what is the most important factor for you?
The first and foremost thing for me is to understand my clients' needs and requirements. I note down their thoughts and my observations of their personality; then I proceed with my research and put forward a brief sketch catering to their requirements. I feel it is important to have a vision and an open thought process while starting out.

Who is your mentor in the design world? What makes him/her special for you?
I respectfully look up to Sameep Padora who has done great work that includes the interiors of Indigo Deli, Lattice house, etc. I have learnt a lot under his guidance. I am also inspired by Rajiv Saini as he is one of the most renowned designers in the country. Both of them have carved out their unique styles and designs which define them as industry stalwarts. Both of them inspire me to be creative and bring my best to the table.
