Excited about this coffee-table book with @penguinindia . One of the best shoots I’ve done. Thanks @avigowariker ! @beautybyg_thelook @mehakoberoi @stylebyami @billysiddiqi @mileeashwarya19 @bottomlinemedia #Repost @archdigestindia ・・・ Gauri Khan’s (@gaurikhan) design journey started long before she took it up professionally and established her eponymous brand Gauri Khan Designs (GKD). It was through passion projects, a keen interest in interiors, and her innate talent to visualise a space that made her realise her love for design. She reveals, “I discovered my talent while doing up my own home. I realised it was something I loved deeply, but it has been a long journey that I hope to showcase through my coffee-table book.” # The pandemic-induced pause in our lives, not only made us homebound, but also made us realise the importance of physical spaces around us. Khan’s book hopes to lend inspiration, and also showcase a treasure trove of never-seen-before photos of her work, family and residence. She says, “The lockdown gave me time to work on this coffee-table book. It will contain exclusive project pictures and information that I feel could guide aspiring designers or those who are just generally interested in the art of design.” # Gauri Khan’s coffee-table book tentatively titled ‘My Life in Design’ is set to release in 2021 and will be published by Penguin (@penguinindia) under the Ebury Press.

Posted @withregram • @vogueindia "I have always wanted to put my thoughts and experiences down in a structured way. My career in design has taught me a lot that could help others wanting to step into this domain. A coffee-table book seemed like a good idea since I can depict my thoughts through pictures as well as text," film producer and interior designer Gauri Khan (@gaurikhan) tells @meghasharma.0, prior to the release of her upcoming coffee-table book, #MyLifeInDesign. Get a lowdown on Khan's writing process, how she keeps herself creative in the midst of a pandemic, what she hopes to achieve through the new venture, and more, in the link in our bio. My Life in Design by Gauri Khan (Penguin Random House) is slated for release in 2021 . 📸: @penguinindia Picture: @avigowariker @beautybyg_thelook @mehakoberoi @stylebyami @billysiddiqi @bottomlinemedia

Gauri Khan has been utilising her quarantine time to work on her projects. In July, she shared pictures and videos to give an idea of what's keeping her occupied. She has also been keeping up with her kids - Suhana, Aryan and AbRam amid the pandemic. Her social media account is filled with fun quarantine memories.

SRK married Gauri in 1991, after a six-year courtship. They have a son Aryan (born 1997) and a daughter Suhana (born 2000). In 2013, they welcomed AbRam, who was born through surrogacy. Speaking about Suhana Khan, the star kid is studying at New York University. Last year, she made her acting debut in a short film called The Grey Part of Blue.
