This month, Taniya Nayak is the cover girl for Boston Common Magazine. We can't get enough of the photographs or the story! Taniya is obviously a natural in front of the camera now, but it was great to read about her varied career path.
We loved this bit: Guests enter her studio through a nondescript industrial door. Inside: design heaven. The expansive single-room space has a flow that works on all levels: charm, mood, utility, originality. Exposed timber beams stripe the ceiling above the computer workstations by the windows. Giant wrought-iron light fixtures hang like cages glowing with steampunk-style bulbs. Bookshelves filled with design volumes and textile samples are a buffer zone, segueing to a cozy sitting area and test kitchen. Yet amid all the eye-candy and ambience, the focal point in the loft is as basic as child’s play: a giant chalkboard filled with quotes that are totally Taniya, and serve as mantras in her everyday life.
