Design is personal and we believe at Yates Desygn that it is our purpose to listen and get to know our clients, extract their personality, style of living, and vision for their space, and guide them to think outside the box. We truly believe that great design will change our client's lives.
It has always been our love and passion to create spaces that showcase and celebrate our client's personality and lifestyle. We think of ourselves as Lifestyle Designers, not limiting us to only interior or landscape designers.
From inspiration to concept, detailed development, and implementation, Yates Desygn strives to bring synergy between our client's lives and the spaces they call home.
Yates Desygn is a full-service firm that tailors quality and sophisticated solutions for Interior Design, Landscape Design, and Architectural Enhancement creating an internal and external cohesive concept.
Brought together personally by their passion for style and design, Mike and Bryan combined their professional talents to create Yates Desygn in 2015.
Once Manhattan residents, Mike and Bryan are now excited to call Dallas Texas their home.
Born and raised in the gulf coast breeze of south Texas, Bryan Yates adventured to the vast plateaus of Lubbock where he earned his bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture. After five years of honing his landscape architectural experience at Texas-based company, TBG Partners, Bryan was drawn to the city lights of the Big Apple. In his quest to blur the lines between interior and landscape, he successfully completed Pratt Institute's challenging, top-rated master's program in interior design in Brooklyn, New York.
Before creating Yates Desygn with his husband, Mike, Bryan worked under the tutelage of internationally acclaimed interior designers at Yabu Pushelberg in Manhattan designing five-star hospitality spaces and high-end residential developments around the world including Mumbai, Tokyo, New York, and Miami. Bryan carries this experience forward to Yates Desygn where he blends high-end design with function and comfort.
From his island upbringing in O'ahu, Hawaii, to his formal undergraduate education in dance and master's degree in lighting design in Arizona, to his professional career in New York City, Mike Yates brings his diverse cultural background and creative talent to this firm.
Fifteen years ago, Mike started his profession as a lighting designer for dance productions. Since 2009, he has toured the world with Paul Taylor Dance Company, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Cedar Lake Contemporary Dance Company, and Pilobolus Dance Theater, and many others choreographing customized theatrical lighting and collaborating with world-renowned lighting experts.
Through his travels to Germany, Israel, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Canada, Uruguay, and across the United States, he has molded his style through his exposure to the architecture and lifestyles of various cultures.
