Brooke Stevens Interior Designer

Born and raised in Colorado, Brooke wanted to experience life on the east coast and started her higher education at University of New Hampshire, focused on Human Development and Family Studies. She went on to transfer to CSU and ultimately graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. After her university experience, Brooke discovered her true passion lies in Interior Design, and earned her master’s certificate from Heritage School of Interior Design in Denver. As a newcomer to the interior design scene, Brooke has loved learning something new every day, and gaining practical knowledge and experience.

As a world class rock climber, Brooke spends her free time focused on extreme mountaineering in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Just kidding... she’s outdoorsy in that she likes long walks on the beach with a margarita in hand. As a self-proclaimed “city girl” Brooke loves exploring the many eclectic neighborhoods and rooftop patios that Denver has to offer, but has been known to be persuaded to go white-water rafting and zip-lining through the woods as long as she can spend more time with friends and family.

Tricia Guy Business Development Specialist & Senior Designer


As the youngest of four girls, Tricia quickly became her father’s resident assistant on all home projects.  Inspired by the endless creative capabilities in each project, Tricia knew design and construction was where she wanted to dedicate her career.  After graduating with her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from The Illinois Institute of Art, Tricia has gained experience from a wide range within the design field:  from high-end residential to commercial interiors.  Working within the Senior Living design market established an instant connection with Tricia and has since been her focus for the past 10 years. Tricia’s positive outlook, passion for architectural design, and dedication to collaboration has created lasting relationships with industry partners looking to design and experience a unique blend of hospitality driven design with an emphasis of resident comfort.


Since relocating to Denver in 2018 from Wisconsin, Tricia enjoys experiencing everything Colorado has to offer.  When she’s not in the mountains enjoying a hike with her significant other Eric and their fur-son Renzo, you can find her teaching her other passion, Pilates, to friends and family alike.

Curb Side Appeal with Sherwin William’s 2020 Color of the Year

Every year, as designers we get excited to see what colors and trends will take off in the year to come, serving as major interior design inspiration. In the design world, trends are constantly changing and evolving so it’s our job to keep everyone up to date, and one easy way to do that is highlighting Sherwin William’s 2020 Color of the Year.

Before the cold winter weather settles in, take a last minute look at the exterior of your home. Could it use a face-lift? If so, don’t stress about completely redoing the entire home, but a fresh coat of trim paint, easy DIY shutters, or even painting your door could be a simple way to freshen up your curb appeal! If you’re feeling even more ambitions, and have the resources, why not go for it with a full redo?

2020’s  Sherwin William’s Color of the Year takes us“Beyond the Blue…” highlighting their color Naval. It’s one of our favorite navy’s that we use time and time again, and one that we think will “set sail” this upcoming year!

Exterior Inspiration Images

How can home owners incorporate this color into their home? There are so many ways, but we are going to focus on the “cover of the book”… the exterior! Let’s set sail with some inspiration we’ve highlighted below to help showcase ways in which you can use 2020’s Color of the Year in your own home.

Create a Color Scheme

Analogous color schemes are some of the easiest color pallets to pull together. Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match well and create serene designs, and are often found in nature. This circles back to our most recent post about bringing nature back into the built environment, and color is one more easy way to do that.

Highlight Additional Accents

Brass or Copper Accents

Adding in brass accents can be as easy as switching out door hardware, address numbers, or even exterior light fixture.

Complimentary Natural Stone

This Art-Deco inspired color can be easily paired with natural stone to tone down, and highlight this vivid Navy hue.

Feature Wood

A final addition that can be added beside this gorgeous color of the year, are natural woods,  which creates a calm and welcoming vibe.
