Nana Yaa Asare-Boadu is a citizen of the world. The British-born Ghanaian fashion designer had spent time living in the Netherlands, France and Italy before finding the unassuming Bedford-Stuyvesant Brooklyn duplex that she currently calls home. Unassuming, that is, from the outside. Inside, the home is a visual feast of global influences, touching personal moments and individual style, presented with all of the understated minimalism of a luxury apartment with a view of Sacré Cœur or overlooking the Champs-Élysées.
As rough-hewn and industrial as some loft spaces can be, there’s still ample opportunity to introduce spaces rich in refined style, as designer Hannah Crowell did in this eclectic dining room. “This was a new build that I wanted to give depth and character, so I chose a charcoal grey that pulled a slight bit of purple. I wanted to mix modern pieces (the Wegner chairs) with a farm table and Bryan Nash Gill prints. The Patterson Flynn and Martin rug was custom and took us 6 months to make but it pulled everything together perfectly.”
Part of Sandy Springs' cultural renaissance, this 14-acre $229 million combination city hall and performing arts center is being posited as a jewel in the city's arts crown. Visitors can enjoy a black box theater, an 1,100 seat auditorium and a lineup of lectures, music and performances as well as a city green with outdoor concerts and performances. Even cuter, City Springs boasts a very Southern "porch" entrance complete with rocking chairs, not something you see at a city hall in every city. A mixed-use development of apartments, restaurants and boutiques rings City Springs for plenty of pre- and post-concert offerings including another location of the French-style patisserie Cafe Vendome.
