#THATSWHATSHESAID: LYSA JORDAN, ATELIER 1064
It's been an exciting last few weeks of 2015!
About a month ago I joined the Visual Magnetics team as Marketing Coordinator - within my first couple of weeks, I had the privilege of traveling to Miami for Design Week, and attending a festive charity auction at Shinola's perfectly-curated Tribeca shop.
And, shindigs aside, the work perk that tops my list has been getting to cross paths with some of the talented makers who create the spaces and products that keep my Pinterest boards at max capacity. A prime example? Atelier1064.
I can't remember how I came across their stunning site, but I was immediately in for a click frenzy. Each space was more beautiful than the next, and summed up my dream digs: pristine palette, with unexpected details.
It now hits even closer to home to get to feature Lysa Jordan, one half of Atelier 1064, as I continue to learn about the architecture and design world.
And now a few favorites from this lovely lady maker ...
Q1: Best gift you received? Who gave it to you?
My boyfriend gave me a very special gift last Christmas.
He gave me a jar with 365 messages written on a piece of paper. Every morning I wake up and read one of his messages. It reminds me everyday how lucky I am.
Q2: Most meaningful projects thus far?
Two years ago my partner Sergio and I decided we would start an architecture and interior design firm. Through our company we've worked on amazing projects with amazing people.
We also have the chance to work with amazing team mates that make our job way more interesting.
Creating spaces for people to grow, live, work is the best part of my job.
It’s such an amazing feeling when you create a space where people feel good.
Q3: Self talk mottos for staying motivated?
I am really passionate about my work so the motivation to do what I do is always there.
But to stay inspired and I am always seeking out for other creative women and men or studios that are doing other creative jobs or that are also in the same fields.
I try to stay curios to have a lot of fun and to challenge myself.
Q4: Pre-party rituals?
I am not very big party person…or should I say not at all. So if I have to go to a party I will spend an hour before alone reading or working on my computer with music.
I do this in order to recharge and be alone before spending a lot of time with people and noise. I also drink coffee to try to stay focused during the party.
