At Discern, we have been fortunate to witness the works of so many architects and interior designers - many through images, some in person - and we are inspired by all of them. Our design team collaborates with talented designers, stylists and design houses from across the world. For a little inspiration, and to introduce you to stellar names from India and across the globe, we reached out to our interior stylist friends to find out who their favourite designers are, and what among their styles inspire them most. We also asked them their favourite Discern Design Style. Read on for their top picks.

Anuradha Kapoor

tist and Founder of Anuraya, an eclectic collection of artistically-designed home utility products.

Favourite Designer:
I am inspired by Charles and Ray Eames. I especially love the furniture designed by them, and would love to own a piece by them. I also love Antoni Gaudi; he is an architect par excellence. Gaudi also designed furniture, light fittings, cutlery, doorknobs and handles, heavy iron grills and gates.

I am a big fan and follower of Patricia Gray, an interior designer based out of Vancouver. She beautifully integrates luxury with crafted detailing in her spaces, yet her designs are contemporary. She designs spaces that are beautiful and sophisticated, yet livable.

Favourite Discern Design Style: 
Contemporary, with a touch of glam. A fine blend of crisp lines, pronounced edges and smooth textures is what I seek in design.

Namratha Jagadish

Interior Design Enthusiast and Decorator

Favourite Designer:
I love designer Justina Blakeney’s effervescent and expressive ‘Jungalow’ style. Her inimitable bohemian decor aesthetic is characterised by a concoction of bold colours, interesting patterns and diverse textures, all intermingling with her favourite decor accessory – plants! Think artisanal textiles such as vibrant Suzanis and warm Kilims combined with the soothing influence of green, which rounds off her cosy and free-spirited decor style!
