The Right Side of the Bed

TGIF! While it's been an unusually warm and beautiful week here in Seattle, it hasn't made getting out of bed any easier. It would be a lie to say we're not looking forward to staying in bed all weekend (except during the Super Bowl, obviously!). Check out some of the bedrooms we've designed and see more on our website here!

Orange you excited to work here?

We're only a few days away from finishing our co-working space with Orange Studios in Redmond and we couldn't be more proud of the work we've done. With custom cabinetry, colorful carpet tiling, and awesome graphics, we are able to have a ton of fun with the space and can't wait for the grand opening January 30th. Take a look at how the space came together from beginning to end. To check out more photos, make sure to visit our Facebook page!

Guest House in Japan

Here at Atelier Drome, we're huge fans of traveling and between all of us we've been everywhere from France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Italy as well as India, and Japan. During our travels we've had the privilege of staying at a variety of places including youth hostels and hotels but this guest house in Koyasan by Alphaville Architects definitely caught our eye. The space is designed to provide both privacy and a sense of community, enriching the travel experience for guests. We can't help but feel the itch of the travel bug as we look at photos of this beautiful space. Read more about the project here!

Fireplaces and Holidays

Frank Lloyd Wright once said, ”the hearth is the psychological center of the home.” Now that we are in holiday season, it is delightful to imagine sitting fireside with friends and families. Here are some cool fireplaces that we think are cool!

Happy New Year!
