Malini Saba’s Sprawling Mansion Is A Vintage Beauty With Unparalleled Luxury

Malini Saba’s Sprawling Mansion Is A Vintage Beauty With Unparalleled Luxury
The 13,000 sq ft mansion was redesigned where three different architectural influences from Samodh Palace, French Palace, and the English manor from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice were compiled together.

They say some houses have a saga to tell but Malini Saba, founder of Saba Industries and Saba Family house has a tale that you would love to decode on your own. Nestled in nine acres of land in Monaco, this mansion is the perfect example of elegance and unparalleled luxury.

Build in the 1980s the moment Saba laid her eyes on this house, she knew that her search of three years has finally come to an end.

The opulence of the 1800 style along with the center courtyard instantly made it the perfect place for her. The 13,000 sq ft mansion was redesigned where three different architectural influences from Samodh Palace, French Palace, and the English manor from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice were compiled together.

As tricky as it may sound but amalgamating these three cultures turned surprisingly beautiful.

“Everyone was weary of my taste but it turned out to be everything I wanted,” says Saba, recalling the moment. An ardent philanthropist who has worked for various humanitarian causes, her house consists of six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a study with winding staircase and wall to wall bookshelves.

Be it a pool house or a mini-golf course, everything has been made keeping the minutest details in mind.

The stunning chandelier hanging from the ceiling of the living and dining room, and the fine gold engravings on the wall are a perfect example of how to engage design exquisitely with surroundings. Every room in Saba’s house takes you to a different part of the world, bringing our wanderlust on the surface.

While you have a theme inspired by the French court donning one part of the house, the television room imports you to the land of Rajasthan with lower settings. Every bedroom is different, while one is all about Japan and cherry blossoms, another is all about Cambodian theme with colors from religious monument Angkor Wat.

Saba has a small mandir (prayer room) in the east side of the house.

“It is very important for me to always incorporate that aspect into the home. The vibe of the house has a lot to do with energy and Feng Shui,” she says.

While every corner has a charm of its own, Saba has a soft side for the library.

“It’s where I can play my favourite music and cuddle my little one while I read or talk. When my family cannot find me in the home they can always find me in the library,” she laughs.

But making it easier for you is Rohit Sahni, Director, WK Life who swears by Huawei Mate 20 Pro phone. What makes this phone an apt buy from a work point of view is its processor and camera and hands down to its other features.

“I got The Huawei Mate 20 Pro phone 15 Days back from Hong Kong, It has actually become my favourite Gadget today. I can share my battery with my friend through Wireless charging i.e. I can charge my phone through this phone. It has got Dot projector in the front which is very useful for me because I can make a 3D model of any of my product. It has the feature of creating many user accounts and private spaces. This is a really cool phone that I got after so long and using really expensive phones,” says Rohit Sahni.

Hyundai Mobis

Looking for something that somewhere displays future of vehicular touchscreens? Hyundai Mobis is the next big thing on the block.

“I liked the new self-driving. Hyundai Mobis they have come up with. I love it because you cannot take the wheel in the Mobis because there is no wheel to take — just a sleek, streamlined dashboard — which is one way the cars can reduce the number of road-rage incidents and extended middle fingers. Isn’t that cool?

The Car recognizes your facial expressions, so if you’re angry, happy or sad, it changes the ambience of the vehicle. I thought this was a great touch. Can you also believe that  It reads other drivers’ and passengers’ emotions as well, so if they are agitated or sleepy, the vehicle automatically detects it? These days with so much road rage on the roads this kind of car could stop a lot of accidents and deaths,” says Malini Saba, Founder, Saba Industries and Saba Family Foundations.

The iPad Pro

The thing with Apple and its products are that it always makes it to the list.

“Being a young entrepreneur, venturing into an existing family business, it became very difficult to incorporate technology into a not-so-tech friendly environment. The iPad Pro is one device that has made life very simple. From scribbling daily reminders to framing new ideas, the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil gives me the ability to have all the things I have ever noted into a form factor that is as slim as a personal diary. With its simple pickup and use features, it makes you feel like actually using pen and paper. For me the best technology is the one which aids your working with the least learning curve, the iPad Pro is just that,” recommends Yashraj Bhatia, Director, Tintech Led Lights

Who doesn’t like some smart living? The Eve Light Strip is something that might grab your attention for sure.

“I have always been interested in getting my hands on new and upcoming tech gadgets. One of the gadgets that caught my eye this year was The Eve Light Strip that was displayed at the International Consumer Electronics Show. The Eve Light Strip is a LED strip, which connects to the home Wi-Fi and hence can be controlled from various sources wirelessly, including most of the Apple gadgets like iPhone, Apple TV, Apple watch, etc. The thing that I like most about The Eve Light Strips is the full-spectrum of lighting it offers with thousands of different colours and tones. It perfectly sets the lighting to the mood and surroundings. It catches commands in a just a flash via Siri, which makes it super convenient and ideally hands-free. I would recommend this product to everyone for a sleek lighting finish and the ease by which it is accessible,” Sargam Dhawan, Director, DAFNI India.
