The Story of Atelier Roux: The Birth of a Brooklyn Interior Design Studio

Welcome to the world of Atelier Roux, where design meets functionality and beauty embraces practicality. Today, I am thrilled to share with you the story of how the Atelier Roux interior design studio came to be, my motivations behind its creation, and how it has evolved to become synonymous with our signature designs.

My Home Design

It all began with a personal home renovation in the heart of Brooklyn. As a mother with two young kids, I understood firsthand the challenges of balancing style with functionality. I wanted an inviting and practical space for my entire family, a sanctuary that could adapt to our changing needs throughout the years. That’s when I discovered the power of warm, minimalistic modern design—a timeless style that minimized clutter and made everyday life easier. It was during this transformative process that my passion for design was reignited, and I realized the immense joy and fulfillment it brought me.

Atelier Roux Backstory

With a background in advertising and tech as a founder and creative director for over ten years, my design journey was not linear. After studying photography and design in school, my love for interior design flourished while building our house in Brooklyn. Every decision, every detail became an opportunity for creativity and self-expression. As I meticulously planned and managed the project, my detail-oriented, problem-solving, and project-management skills came to the forefront. I fell deeper in love with the design process. It became more than just a job or a hobby; it consumed me. I would lay awake at night, my mind brimming with possibilities and ideas. This burning passion and relentless drive are what fueled the birth of Atelier Roux.

Today, Atelier Roux represents the culmination of my journey—a studio dedicated to crafting spaces that beautifully merge form and function. I am sharing my story to give you a glimpse into the building of Atelier Roux and provide insight into the core principles that drive our design philosophy. Our evolution has been guided by the pursuit of designing homes that are not only visually stunning but also practical, tailored to the unique needs of each client. Our unwavering commitment to creating spaces that reflect our client’s tastes and lifestyles sets us apart.

Building From the Ground Up

The process of designing a home can be overwhelming, with countless decisions being made and factors to consider. These choices can often be rushed without a design expert, wasting time, money, stress, and dissatisfaction. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to simplify the process, removing the stress and uncertainty for my clients and making the journey toward their dream homes enjoyable.

And so, Atelier Roux was born. It started as a personal passion project, a desire to fill the gap in the industry for beautiful, family-friendly design. I knew a balance could exist where beautiful and unique designs coexist with functional and practical elements in a home.
