The collector who resides in this refined New York City pad has relied on Aamir Khandwala, of Aamir Khandwala Interior Design, to decorate her homes since the 1990s—when Khandwala was Robert Couturier’s head of decoration. For three decades, she has returned to him for distinctive and rich design that endures. “As I walk into a home that Aamir has completed for me, I am instantly reminded why I choose Aamir each time: to make my world full of beauty, grace, and comfort,” she says. “He and I hit it off from the very beginning. Not only does he have exceptional taste, he also listens to his clients carefully and designs solely for them, keeping their needs in mind and his own ego out.” The result is a unique and sophisticated mélange, reflecting his own aesthetics and his clients’ personalities.
