BRYAN AND MIKE YATES YATES DESYGN DALLAS ROOM: Inner Circle subterranean living area INSPIRATION: "To create our immersive space, we were inspired by Prohibition-era speakeasies providing a dedicated place to unwind and entertain. It was imperative that the home's subterranean level be celebrated, as so few Dallas residences include this feature. In the stairwell are sumptuous suede walls hand-painted in a graphic pattern, created in collaboration with Ever Atelier. The expansive room, swathed in a correlating wallcovering and richly stained wood, contains three distinct areas: a cozy living space, kitchen, and dedicated game table. The windowless room's intrinsic intimacy and moodiness are balanced with a curved B&B Italia sofa that offers ample room to lounge and surrounds the Strike by Chad Dorsey marble fireplace. Sleek fixtures and appliances provide full functionality in the kitchen. Wired Custom Lighting created the kitchen's delicate light fixture to our specifications, with chains hanging from the ceiling and the fixture itself reminiscent of a flapper's swinging fringe dress. Off the kitchen, a game table and chairs sit next to a mirrored niche, creating a moment worthy of the most focused card sharp." — Bryan and Mike Yates PHOTOGRAPHY STEPHEN KARLISCH For Resources, see page 116
