Celebrated interior designer Gauri Khan will make her debut as an author with a book about her journey as a designer, announced publishing house Penguin Random House India on Monday.

The coffee-table book, tentatively titled My Life In Design, will be released in 2021 under Penguin’s ‘Ebury Press’ imprint, they said.

Talking about her book, Khan said it would be “visually appealing”, and guide both “aspiring designers” and people who want to learn about design in general.

“There are several experiences in my journey as a designer that I would like to record for posterity. The book will be very visually appealing with exclusive pictures and information that I feel could guide aspiring designers or those who are just generally interested in the art of design.

“The lockdown has given me time to work on this coffee-table book and I will be extremely happy to see it published soon,” said Khan, who owns Gauri Khan Designs (GKD), a well-known interior design company.

So be it renovating her own home, of several Bollywood A-listers — including Karan Johar, Ranbir Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez — or designing commercial spaces such as retail outlets, restaurants, spas, hotels, show apartments and various turnkey projects, Khan’s journey as a designer, as per the publishers, has been an “original and exciting story”.
