If you want to see the way the Indian elite might one day live, the collector Shalini Passi's New Delhi home is a good place to start. For more than a decade, Passi has conducted a brilliantly curated, global tour of self-education: commissioning and collecting works of art, objects and furniture from auction houses, artists and fairs on four continents. And she has housed her collection in a remarkable space that is so much more than the sum of its parts.

To hear the extraordinary tale behind Passi's home, you'll have to turn to our May issue, but here, we take you on a tour.
