The Boston Architectural College (BAC) hosted its annual Spring Gala on Thursday, April 19, at the Boston Design Center in the Seaport District. Over 500 guests enjoyed an evening of fine food and beverage tastings, all donated by area establishments including; Abby Lane, Boston Harbor Distillery, Citrus & Salt, Fuji at Ink Block, Saloniki Greek, and Yellow Door Taqueria. A dozen of Boston’s top interior designers, led by gala co-chairs Taniya Nayak and Eric Roseff, teamed up with BAC students to design all the party food stations. The evening raised over $380,000 to support the BAC’s students’ practiced-based education.
Gala co-chair Taniya Nayak is a BAC alumna, who owns her own interior design firm, Taniya Nayak Design LLC., and is a well know television personality appearing on HGTV, Food Network, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show and several other television shows. Her fellow chair Eric Roseff established Eric Roseff Designs, a full-service interior design firm. He is currently working on projects all over the United States.
