Savor this interior design book featuring the stunning homes of those who have made significant contributions to Black American culture-from chef Alexander Smalls to Don Cheadle and Bridgid Coulter to Danielle Brooks. From a husband and wife design team comes a book that steps into the intimate spaces of actors and musicians, creative rooms of artists and curators, generational homes with history, and "boss" offices of entrepreneurs and executives. Exploring Black design through 17 homeowners, the pages of AphroChic resonate with stories of resilience and resistance. With tours that feature striking interiors filled with art and cherished heirlooms; stories that explore memories about family and community; and historical sidebars that touch on the obstacles to homeownership many Black Americans face today, AphroChic honors the journey, celebrates success, and envisions the future.
