Film producer and interior designer Gauri Khan is all set to release her debut book about her journey as a designer. Tentatively titled My Life In Design, it will be published by Penguin Random House under the Ebury Press imprint and is set to be released next year.
Khan runs an interior design company, Gauri Khan Designs (GKD), and has taken up various projects from renovating her own home to designing commercial spaces such as retail outlets, restaurants, spas, hotels, show apartments and other turnkey projects.
The coffee-table book will offer an insider’s view of her life, experiences and design philosophy. The book will include never-before-seen photos of her work, family (the designer is married to film star Shah Rukh Khan) and residence. Khan will also include insights for those aspiring to get into her field of work and wanting to learn about design in general.
Commenting on the upcoming book, Gauri Khan said, “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.”
Publisher Milee Ashwarya said, "The pandemic has brought several learnings, and it has forced us to slow down, look around and ponder. As most of us are working from home, there is renewed interest in creating our own happy space to keep us positive and motivated through these trying times. I am delighted that Gauri Khan has decided to share her design philosophy and open up her home for all the readers."
