A SHROOMIN’ DEBUT
Inspired by its eclectic, hippie pizza joints, yellow mushroom-covered pizza boxes and bubbly colored murals, Mellow Mushroom has created an entire lifestyle and clothing collection called “House of Shroom.” Spearheaded by a team of artists, including Atlanta-based Dusty Griffin and Destiny Holden, the House of Shroom collection can be found online with select items available in Mellow Mushroom locations in Buckhead and Brookhaven. The full line includes hoodies, letterman jackets, short and long-sleeved T-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants and scarves, as well as stemware and temporary tattoos. The artists say the items are designed to “evoke the dark mystery of woodland magic” and “mimic a journey through the forest.”
Find the collection online and in select stores.

HANOVER EAST PACES TAKES A 3D APPROACH
Hanover East Paces, a new luxury apartment complex off Pharr Road behind The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, opens doors to tenants this month. Prospective residents have been touring the one- and two-bedroom apartments and studios long before the project broke ground last year. Hanover is one of the first developers in the city to utilize Oculus Rift technology to showcase pre-construction spaces. From viewing the 17 floor plans and interacting with the kitchen amenities, the technology transforms static 2D renderings and brings them to life in 3D via Oculus Rift VR goggles. Home buyers can soon interact with five more of Hanover’s mixed-use development projects set to launch this year.
