This apartment is what happens when two vibrant—and cheeky!—artists make a home together. Derek has made a name for himself as a painter in the Seattle art scene by incorporating his own brand of satire into pop culture allusions (you may recognize his work from Andrew & Becky's Bright, Eclectic Seattle Apartment), while Ashley is an up-and-coming fashion and fine art photographer who loves challenging conventional ideas of femininity in her work. "It's not a surprise that our house is heavily decorated in personal paintings and Ashley's photography," says Derek, "all of which rotates as we sell it and make more."
