    Any informal term for 'discerning', please?

    Hi there,

    Would you please give me any informal word referring to a person with great taste for clothes, pieces of furniture, etc? (You'd alaways praise their choices, say, when they buy a new item in terms of the colour or style they've gone for.)

    A good thesaurus can be found here.

    I am not sure that there is a single word that covers all of that. Simply saying that the person has great taste in XXX will do nicely.
