Yesterday, ADAC hosted interior designer Nancy Braithwaite's keynote presentation for her soon-to-be-released monograph, Simplicity. For the hour long discussion, Nancy provided an overview of her 30+ year career in design, touching on her early days, examples from her lengthy portfolio, and a demonstration reflecting her "Elements Of Design", her tool list of sorts that build her design vision when approaching a new project.... They include:
Proportion and Scale
Following the presentation, the Jerry Pair showroom hosted Nancy for a book signing, with pre-released copies available for purchase. I was intent on buying one after seeing some of the photos included in Nancy's lecture.... Each possess a distinct quiet beauty that elevates interior design to an art form. Nancy's experienced eye expertly layers scale, color, and form. To note, the overscale hardcover book has a unique design with the jacket cover -- it is deliberately smaller in height than the book, to reveal a top portion of Nancy's raised dot design detail.
*Found below.... The October issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles features Nancy on the cover alongside architect Norman Askins, with images from her book.... Plus I've included photos from Nancy's previous Buckhead residence that Mary Emmerling published in her book, American Country South (1989), a title I highly recommend adding to your design library.
