Brinda and Alfaz Miller’s apartment in Mumbai - Beautiful Homes

This 2,100 sq ft haven provides a vibrant backdrop to the collection of paintings, sculptures, antiques and accessories that the couple have collected over the years

We are not sure about first impressions being the last ones but one thing we do know is that it sure can make a lasting impression. Which is pretty much how we still remember the beautiful, carefully curated entrance to artist Brinda, and her architect husband, Alfaz Miller’s apartment in Mumbai.


Unlike mass produced, impersonal nameplates, hand painted portraits of the couple, their two daughters, Aahana and Aashti, and their dog, Leonardo (who they lost last year) welcome you at the door. As you step inside, an entire wall of black and white vignettes give you the once over. “This is my family tree, and that is a picture of my father… and there is my mother,” offers Brinda, as she lovingly traces her fingers across the frames, intuitively straightening the errant ones.

A wall with black and white photographs of Brinda’s forefathers dominates the hallway.

We cross the kitchen, a large, airy space, where you can hear the sputtering of oil, the aroma of food wafting through amid Mojo’s (their newest baby, a black labrador) delighted squeals. It is indeed the heart of the house, the happy centre. “This used to be my favourite space. But now that I don’t have a lot of free time, I do not cook too much. So, now my favourite space is my bathroom; not because I spend time there but because it is such an interesting space,” admits Brinda with a smile.

The living room is spacious with windows opening out to the Arabian Sea. The view is stunning, and the Millers are lucky to have it envelop all their rooms. Their home is a mix of her personal works, artworks collected over the years, antiques, flea market finds, and an assortment of accessories that they have picked up over their travels. A wall of different heads and masks marks the entry to their vivid, orange bedroom. A wall of paintings, which bear some of the most coveted signatures, beckons you in. On the right is an equally vibrant bathroom, also filled with art. “Our home is like my paintings – earthy, warm hues give it the right energy. You will find a lot of black, red, orange and earthy tones,” explains Brinda.

An Expansive Living Room Decorated with Antique Furniture and Art – Beautiful Homes

The expansive living room is a mix of antique furniture and art that the Millers’ have collected over the years.

Aashti’s room is riot of colours too, but with a young, infectious energy. A denim fabric covered sink-in futon sits next to a bright pink cupboard. A discarded taximeter sits on the dresser while kitschy prints adorn the wall behind it. Sarees have been revitalised as curtains that add more colour to the space.


“For both, Alfaz and me, comfort is the most important element when it comes to our home. We do not follow any design rules. At the end of a long day, it needs to be space where we can put our feet up!” signs off Brinda.
