Alton Brown embodies the ultimate foodie nerd on his numerous TV series, but the Food Network star’s Mariettta, Georgia, loft is shockingly hip.
That likely has something to do with the fact that his new fiancée, Elizabeth Ingram, is a successful restaurant and residential designer based in Atlanta. In fact, the pair met when Brown hired her to decorate the new apartment he’d just purchased, he tells archdigest.com.
While they had a successful working relationship, as their stylish and unique home proves, he admits, “At some point, meetings turned into dates.”
During their AD interview, Brown stops to ask Ingram, “At some point, did you start thinking you might live there?” She admits, “Yes,” but says she maintained her professionalism by designing the space to Brown’s taste, not her own.
