Hav­ing spent close to two decades liv­ing over­seas, Udayshanth (Shanth) Fer­nando

re­turned home to Colombo to launch Par­adise Road, a project that has since seen him called the coun­try’s “king of mono­chrome”. One of Sri Lanka’s most suc­cess­ful home­wares brands, Par­adise Road has grown into a col­lec­tion of up­scale shops and gal­leries — in­clud­ing ones owned by Fer­nando’s equally stylish daugh­ters — plus two bou­tique ho­tels: the lush 10-suite Tin­tagel in Colombo, and the Ge­of­frey Bawa-de­signed The Villa Ben­tota fur­ther south.
