About : Designer
San Francisco-based designer, Noël Yeh, is the visionary behind her design studio.
Noël attended Boston College, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing. She began her career in retail merchandising for fashion houses, but found that she wanted to expand her love for clothing design and explore her affinity for interior living spaces. Noël began studying Architecture & Interior Design at the University of California, Los Angeles, and subsequently obtained her Certificate in the Interior Design and Interior Architecture program at University of California, Berkeley. This formal training allowed Noël to fine-tune her natural design intuition and develop her technical skills in design rendering programs. She worked at several notable residential interior design firms prior to launching Atelier Noël. Her experience in the business world has been invaluable in managing client budgets and meeting key project deadlines. These attributes are as important to a successful client relationship as making inspired creative choices. Interior Design is truly Noël’s calling and strength. It is the perfect balance of creativity and analytics, while helping others improve their quality of life. Through her passion for fashion, art, music, and travel, she has created a personal style that is eclectic and casual, while maintaining a strong sense of tradition and sophistication.
Noël is currently an Allied American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) member and Certified Interior Designer (CID) in the state of California.
About : Philosophy
At home, work, or play, our surroundings affect us. Our environment encourages or discourages, enhances or detracts, supports or depletes your energy, productivity, pleasure and relaxation. Good design is timeless and enriching. We believe it should be available to everyone, regardless of budget. It is our goal to disseminate the importance of design in everyday life.
A successful design project is the result of trust and candid communication between the client and the designer. We create livable spaces that are both refined and inviting. Each project presents new challenges, and we enjoy getting to know each client in order to execute the most appropriate solution for their home. Though each design we create is different, our standard for quality, attention to detail, and thoughtful approach is evident in all our work. The result is a space that is harmonious, elegant, and personal to the client.
Your home is the ultimate expression of your lifestyle. It should reflect you as much as it nurtures you. It should be your life's studio as well as its sanctuary. Your home should be where you go to relax, rejuvenate, and be inspired. Our designs are responsive to each client's unique needs, enhancing the visual impact and functionality of spaces, resulting in an improved quality of life.
About : Style
A well-designed home is one that feels thoughtful, layered, and
assembled over time. Traditional elegance with a modern sensibility is
the signature of Atelier Noël. Our style begins with the purity of
simple lines and a muted palette, and then layers in splashes of rich
textures and patterns. Although every Atelier Noël interior is born of
this approach, the results are as different as our clients. We
understand the importance of architecture, space, and detail while
balancing a client's ideas with our aesthetic. The end result is a
space that's personal, has depth, and can still stand the test of
Both respecting tradition and embracing new ideas, Noël's innate sense
of beauty and ability to translate these inspirations into functional
style are the foundation for her fresh and unique designs. The
juxtaposition of contemporary living with key antique accents, while
effectively creating an airy and classic feel, establishes her
distinctive spaces. She emphasizes a clean and inviting environment,
and infuses it with individuality and her flair for sophistication and
luxury. Her work is timeless, elegant, and fashion-forward all spun
together into impeccable taste.
