Interior designer, architect, and furniture designer India Mahdavi apparently does it all. She's designed homes, hotels, commercial spaces, and even airplane interiors. Raised by a Persian father and Egyptian and English mother, this globe-trotting designer spent her childhood living in 11 different countries, and her eclectic, colorful interiors reflect her myriad influences and inspirations. Mahdavi attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris for architecture, after which she worked in an architecture firm. However, interior and furniture design proved to be her true passion, and her talent for these mediums is self-evident. Last year, she was included in Time's Design 100. In an interview with Index magazine, she said, "Style is just being clever with space, clever with color, clever with ambiance. Style can create a very good feel." Indeed, Mahdavi's projects seem to create just that.
