Eye on Design >>> Smith Hanes

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Friend and noted interior designer Smith Hanes is responsible for the interiors of some of Atlanta's most sought after eateries. His overall style tends to take influence from natural materials, interesting accessories, and a specific color palette. Opening this Spring are 2 of his latest projects....  the redesign of Watershed, as it changes locale from Decatur to Brookwood Hills, and his 3rd collaboration with Chef Ford Fry, in Fry's soon to be opened (May 21), The Optimist.

Smith's gravitation towards restaurant design is an easy extension of his broad & seasoned career. Not only has he received recognition for his residential design projects (House Beautiful October 2010), he and his wife Alisa Barry are the owners of the specialty food company Bella Cucina Artful Food. Even in the early stages of their growing company, Smith's strong design vision emphasized the importance of beautiful packaging & the detailed look that Bella Cucina products are known for.

Check out photos below of the interior of The Optimist followed by info to attend an informal cocktail reception to meet and hear Smith talk about all of his design goings-on at Switch Modern on May 30.
