Yes, we are neighbors! I have lived in the Buckhead/ Sandy Springs area since 1990 and our magazine office has been located on West Wieuca, adjacent to Chastain Park, for nearly 20 years.

Q

I want to move to Buckhead, but want a custom-built house. Where should I look? A: Since land is scarce in Buckhead, I tell most of my clients to focus on the street and neighborhood where they want to live and buy a home that can be remodeled to fit their family’s needs.

Little Nancy Creek Park encourages city-dwellers to rev up their green

thumb with a community garden plot. They donate a portion of what’s grown to Buckhead Christian Ministries’ food pantry or the Atlanta Food Bank. Reminder—cool weather brings out the best flavor in broccoli, cabbage and carrots. 4012 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd. LittleNancyCreekPark.org

Pike Nursery fall planting tips: Flowers like pansies,

chrysanthemums and snapdragons love cool weather and add vibrant color in fall.

Incorporate mulch into your flower beds to keep them healthy in winter—it keeps soil temps consistent and prevents weeds. Plant veggies in soil that receives at least six hours of sun a day. PikeNursery.com

Designs by BSB’s leading lady, Becky Sue Becker, designed this Buckhead home’s living room with family comfort in mind. The seating areas, centered around a fireplace, make for cozy evenings. The box beam ceilings are textured with brown metallic foil, giving this formal room a more traditional style. DesignsByBSB.com

Find inspiration for your kitchen project at the Wolf and Sub-Zero showroom in Buckhead, where homeowners and pros alike can find inspiration with new model appliances, like this kitchen vignette with a sleek, modern refrigerator and double oven in a homey setting. The showroom hosts a complimentary dinner demonstration highlighting features of cooktops, ranges and ovens on Nov. 15. 3280 Peachtree Rd. NE. SubZero-Wolf.com

QUESTIONS I’M ASKED EVERY DAY.

20 MYBH_018-025_1016_PROFILES.indd 20

Vern’s parents emigrated to the United States from China when he was very young—to bring him and his sister to the land of opportunity. “Like most Asian Americans,” Yip chuckles, “my parents wanted me to be either a doctor or . . . a doctor. So I studied chemistry and economics and ended up working at the lab in the National Institutes of Health studying HIV-related diseases. But I absolutely hated it.” Vern found himself studying his office, wondering why the paint color was so drab and why the lighting made everything seem so dull. “I finally realized that the work we were doing was very important— someone else needed to do it; someone who really cared about it.” Following his AHA! moment, Vern convinced his parents that he should explore a career in design. “My mother knew I. M. Pei [the venerable architect]. She took me to him and asked where I should go to study architecture and design and he told me to

His new book, Vern Yip’s Design Wise, is aimed at readers who want their questions answered quickly and concisely. “Don’t get me wrong. I love vanity books full of beautiful pictures. I’m a self-proclaimed ‘book nerd,’” Vern admits. “But I wanted to create a user-friendly guide that addresses questions I’m asked every day. ‘How high should I hang a painting?’ ‘How big should a lampshade be?’ ‘What paint color should I choose?’” His Design Wise book tour launches this fall, with stops in Buckhead and across the country.

10/11/16 6:11 PM


Vern’s background in science and mathematics melds well with his passion for interior design.

IN HIS NEW BOOK, VERN GIVES SUCH PRACTICAL TIPS AS: 12”: MINIMUM PLACE SETTING SPACE IN FRONT OF EACH DINER AT A RECTANGULAR TABLE. 15”: MAXIMUM CENTERPIECE HEIGHT TO ALLOW DINERS TO SEE EACH OTHER. 36”: HEIGHT OF A HANGING FIXTURE’S UNDERSIDE TO THE TOP OF A TABLE SURFACE.

He says his goal in writing Design Wise was to provide a “design by numbers” reference book—an organized, very clear approach to home design. “Choosing furniture and making design decisions is scary for some people. I wanted to create a guide so that tackling your whole house is approachable.”

“I’m so grateful for that TV show,” Vern relates. “It represented a change in the world of design. Back then, well-designed homes were reserved for the top rung of the socio–economic ladder. The show brought good, accessible interior design to everybody. Now it’s okay to be eclectic. It’s okay to tailor your furniture to you. Now it’s fun.” Vern actually met his spouse, Craig, because of his travels for the TV show. “I was on the road five days a week; I’d come home on weekends, do laundry and get out there again.” During Vern’s search for a place to board his dog while he was gone, he discovered Wag-a-Lot Dog Grooming. “The first day I walked into this amazing place, where they take such good care of the dogs, I thought, wow. This is going to work!” He met Craig, the owner of the business, and a romance blossomed. Now, the couple has two kids, a son and daughter. “We travel all over the world. It’s really important to me to expose them to travel, because it helps you understand the world. You see it. You feel it. It’s not like you can Google it. Advice I give young designers is—become as educated as you can. Never stop learning. And travel is part of learning.” When the family does come home to Buckhead, though, Vern indulges his inner foodie at Gusto, Hankook Taqueria or Tuk Tuk Thai Food Loft. “I love Buckhead. I call Atlanta home. It’s my community.”

Vern’s 3

Design Wise Tips

1

SOFAS “I’m not a fan of sofas with two cushions since three people will rarely sit on a sofa that visually looks like it’s for two people. And there’s an undesirable ‘gap’ between the two cushions, an area generally avoided by everyone. Sofas less than 84 inches long benefit from a single cushion; it’s an elegant, clean solution.”

2

BATHROOM LIGHTING “60 to 65 inches is the standard height of sconces installed on either side of the mirror or medicine cabinet. The idea is to install side sconces at eye level, so depending on the heights of the people using the bathroom, some slight adjustments to this rule may be necessary.”

3

CHOOSING PAINT COLOR “Small rooms are often painted white or light colors in an effort to make them feel larger. This doesn’t have to be the case. The important thing to remember is to keep it fairly monochromatic so the eye effortlessly travels from surface to surface.”

go to Georgia Tech. He said his best interns came from there. So that’s how I ended up in Atlanta.” He eventually built his own award-winning interior-design business here. Then, he says, the producers of the soonto-be-smash-hit HGTV show “Trading Spaces” asked if he’d join its cast of designers. He smiles, “These guys told me I’d have 48 hours to spend only $1,000 to transform an entire room on camera. I thought they were completely crazy.” He eventually did join the cast and, as they say, the rest is history. He’s now one of America’s most recognized interior designers, with other hit shows on HGTV to add to his list of successes.

Tasneem Bhatia (“Dr. Taz”) AU T H O R

H E A L E R

M O T H E R

Dr. Tasneem Bhatia brings more to Buckhead than her warm greeting and welcoming manner. She’s a board-certified physician, specializing in integrative and emergency medicine, pediatrics and prevention, an expert in women’s health, weight-loss and nutrition. She is the author of What Doctors Eat and The 21-Day Belly Fix. She also serves as a medical expert on “CNN Daily News,” “Dr. Oz” and “Good Morning America.” Her focus? Thinking outside the Western medicine “box” to divine her patients’ core health issues and develop individualized plans for treatment. Her business has been in Buckhead for years, and now she is opening her newest location in Johns Creek.

Q

Tell us what led you to pursue integrative medicine?

just had to find a different way of thinking. Studying various systems of medicine, I found a wealth of information not yet taught in conventional medical schools. It brought me healing and I had to share what worked for me, which is why I opened the practice. Now, I lead a great team of practitioners at CentreSpringMD—they help people find healing every day. I love what we do and am excited to see the shift culturally and medically.

Q

What do you wish more people understood about holistic, integrative medicine?

ES WN TO HER PATIENTS, TAK “DR. TAZ,” AS SHE’S KNO AND WELLNESS LING HEA QUE UNI A THE TIME TO CREATE H INDIVIDUAL. PROGRAM SUITED TO EAC

I wish people understood that this is true medicine. Its results continue to speak for themselves. “Holistic” really means looking at the whole person to uncover the story of his or her health, not focusing on one aspect only. Integrative medicine is the center, the core, that pulls all aspects of a patient’s health together to find lasting solutions.

Q

What are some of your favorite spots for shopping, dining or working out in Buckhead?

I love the Buckhead Diner, which has become a favorite date-night spot for me and my husband. I also enjoy Chops, Umi and, of course, True Food Kitchen! We love taking the kids to

BarTaco. I shop Buckhead Station frequently, along with Neiman’s and Woo Cosmetics. I wish I could try all the great workout studios around now. West Coast Workout and FlyWheel are amazing, according to my patients and friends. But I resort to working out at home or hitting Lifetime on the weekend, mainly due to my time constraints.

Brenda Fannin MENTOR • ART LOVER • GALLERY OWNER

Brenda Fannin spent most of her career shining brightly in the corporate arena. From management positions to consulting projects to strategy development, Brenda’s always approached her time in the C-suite from a slightly different perspective. “I’m actually not sure if I was born for a corporate job; I’ve always given that an entrepreneurial flair, treating it like my own business,” she says. Several years ago, Brenda began to take note of the way Millennials were changing corporate America. While many business professionals were perplexed by this generation, Brenda thought their outlook was inspiring. She valued their sense of global awareness and their motivation. “Many would come to an interview already creating and engaged, not waiting for instruction,” she notes. She decided to found The Global Launchpad to empower ambitious young adults to make a difference in their chosen field—whether in business, technology, nonprofits or the arts.

SHE BEGAN EVALUATING

HAPPY

PROFESSIONALLY

AND

GAVE VOICE TO THE PART

OF HER THAT WAS UNFULFILLED.

She found herself learning from her Millennial colleagues. She began evaluating what made her happy professionally and gave voice to the part of her that was unfulfilled. She’d built a successful career, but her heart wasn’t really in it. She then ran across a French gallery franchise, Carré d’Artistes, which facilitates the sale of stunning, original pieces at accessible, affordable prices. Brenda’s curiosity immediately piqued and she soon traveled to France to meet with the company. Art had long been her passion, introduced to her by her mother, who took her on weekly museum outings throughout her New York City childhood. Now, Brenda has taken a leap of faith into gallery ownership and committed to staffing with Millennials. “Art should be available,” Brenda believes. “You should be able to find things that speak to you.” Brenda sees art as a medium to create a relationship between the artist and the owner of the piece, connecting them through the experience evoked by that piece. And she doesn’t want the impact of that experience to be limited by a luxury price. Carré d’Artistes sells pieces by international and local artists, framed and ready, starting at about $125. The gallery has opened in Phipps Plaza, which Brenda targeted as the ideal placement for her venture, especially since it’s one of her favorite places. She’s lived in the area for over 25 years, listing Buckhead shopping and dining at Bistro Niko or The Palm among her top choices.
