Hannah is a Fashion and Luxury Management graduate student at the Savannah College of Art & Design and creator of News Macarons. We lived together for about a year in a lovely home in Savannah’s most sought after neighborhood, Ardsley Park before she traveled to Hong Kong with SCAD to further her studies for two quarters.
She aptly coined the term “Mansion-mates” because housemates” and “roommates” just seemed too impersonal and didn’t justify the beauty of our home and our newfound friendship.
Hannah mostly gains her insight and inspiration for interior design from her love of fashion. Her style is chic-glam with a refined touch that doesn’t shy away from timeless pieces. Hannah swears by Erin’ Gates’s book Elements of Style: Designing a Home & a Life and still follows her blog!
Here she shares with us the entryway and dining room where she used consignment finds and modern buys to make a vintage-glam first impression anybody with mansion-esque dreams would covet!
(Althouth it is very common for people in Savannah to live in a share or share a home with someone that they are not related to or are even friends with in the beginning, Hannah and I are proof that you can make lifelong friends out of a living situation. We both advise to exercise caution in pursuing this kind of living situation. We have heard many horror stories, and consider ourselves very lucky!)
These days Hannah, her wonderful boyfriend Todd, and her lovely doggies are living much farther north in Michigan. (We miss you, Hannah!)

Ardsley Park is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Savannah. The houses range from cute craftsmen style homes to stately mansions, and it’s beautiful to boot. Washington Avenue runs east to west through the heart of Ardsley and is by far the prettiest street in Savannah. Try riding your bike on either side of the street (there are designated bike lanes on both sides –a rarity in Savannah) on a sunny day, and you will instantly fall in love with the city’s charm. It is definitely one of Savannah’s best-kept secrets 🙂
