From graduating from Mumbai’s SNDT University in Interior Architecture, to honing her lighting design skill sets, Paulomi Shah went on to garner much international exposure, making her among the youngest names in the industry, to be spearheading multimillion dollar projects so early on in her career.
No wonder then that her deft managerial and design skills made her the youngest Associate of internationally-acclaimed design consultancy Bobby Mukherji & Associates over a decade ago and today, she stands as managing director of the firm. She has been the driving force at BM&A, playing a pivotal role in the firm becoming a name to reckon with among the most prestigious brands, nationally and internationally.
Exuding a quiet, patient and confident outlook, Paulomi is someone who still pegs fundamentals over fame. She brings a fine sensibility and a creative approach to the business, and her contribution to BM&A’s renowned clientele is testimony to that.
While she helms the interior division, Paulomi fancies focusing on her forte and passion—hospitality—and has designed some of the most prominent, award-winning projects across the country and abroad.
Although she feels passionately about working in the design and hospitality space, Paulomi has worked on projects across an entire spectrum of sectors such as commercial, residential, recreational and aviation.
Having travelled the world, with design expertise in large scale interior projects that are nothing short of being synonymous with luxury has earned her many an accolade; as her repertoire of new and repeat clientele include the likes of Marriott International, Carlson Rezidor, Starwood Hotels & resorts, Taj Palaces & resorts, The Hard Rock Café, Sahara Hospitality Ltd. across their various brands.
Besides creative planning and designing; she also takes keen interest in strategizing and brand positioning for the company. Her strength lies in style and detail and working on design concepts that are of global standards as she fosters BM&A’s mission of providing designs par excellence right here in India.
She believes design is a fluid and organic entity that blends cultures to give birth to beauty that speaks to the soul. “Being a firm with a global outlook, the first step towards this belief is to immerse ourselves into an environment; its style, symbolic and cultural references, materials that work in its favour. Fusing these tangible elements with our distinctive approach to design, forms the foundation of every project we take on. We are devoted to creating unique experiences, environments and city scapes for the end consumer which translate into successful ventures for our clients. Helping our clients achieve their vision is our primary goal which has seen us flourish and grow steadily over the years”
No matter how complex or demanding a project, we ensure it always tells a story seamlessly woven into design; while seducing the senses. That is just why some of the country’s most renowned and respected hotel chains, resorts, airlines, real estate developers, institutions, corporate and individuals turn to BM&A to ensure a healthy return on investment in addition to a project par compare. While the awards speak for themselves, the support and unwavering allegiance our clients have shown is most humbling.
