Just off the master bedroom is a spacious master bath featuring two dressing areas and a step down shower room that gives the feeling of a spa-like oasis. One theme of this showhouse was the variety of high quality artwork and novel ways to display it including this embroidery displayed on a stand-alone easel.
Dress forms are to be expected in the home of a fashion designer, but few dress forms display such an array of global pieces. Both forms are decorated with beaded necklaces from Ghana while the smaller one sports a neckpiece made in Paris. Along with the beads, the larger form wears a small golden pouch that Nana Yaa picked up while traveling in Israel. It also displays her collection of colorful Ghanaian hats, one of her favorite summer accessories, which weave leather together with plant fibers.
A shell white dresser offers stylish storage for folded sweaters and other bedroom essentials, with satin brass hardware, self-closing drawer guides and cedar-lined bottom drawers. A beautiful and tough fiddle-leaf fig plant adds a touch of nature to the bedroom corner. A potted fern on an attractive faux shagreen tray on the dresser brings more greenery to the space.
The overall design for the updated room included a mix of dark blues, texture, midcentury-modern lines and masculine touches. These elements were brought in through accessories including white ceramic sculpture, coral and plaid pillar candles.
A blend of mezcal, clarified lemon, blanc vermouth, sage and lavender soda, the Summer Dresses cocktail at Atlanta's Biltong Bar in Buckhead shows the creativity of this South African hot spot's drinks program.
