This contemporary bedroom doubles as a lounge space with a loft bed built over the large black and white sectional. Alternating cushions create a checked look with black and white throw pillows adding to the theme. Speaker pillows and a boom box canvas add musical decor perfect for the cool vibe of the room.
Across from the fireplace a small desk sits tucked against the wall where the designer can work while enjoying her favorite music. The small nook is a wonderful way to carve out a personalized home office. Framed sketches, cameras and masks—all strong recurring themes in the home—decorate the space, giving the work environment an equal share in the decoration and feeling of the home. A small globe is a fitting finishing touch for Nana Yaa, who claims travel as her first and truest love.
The Serenbe community features an 8-acre organic farm (staffed by a comely group of earthy millennial farmers) and the local restaurants highlight the fruits of that labor. The homespun, casual Blue-Eyed Daisy does a great job in a relatively small space with delicious seasonal Southern fare. Stop by for a coffee, breakfast or lunch, or the Taco Nights and Meat & 3 dinners scheduled each week that draw local residents. A bit more upscale, The Hill is a white-tablecloth variation on that farm-to-table theme sourcing proteins and produce locally and serving lunch and dinner in a farmhouse chic, unpretentious setting. But you don't have to eat at one of those spots (though you absolutely should); there is also produce galore from April through November at the Serenbe Farmers and Artisan Market where you can watch a chef demo or listen to live music or just pick up some artisanal goodie as a souvenir of your trip to the gorgeous Georgia countryside.
