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.

Fall Color Mix- Sparkling Fig & Honey

This week is a two-fer for fall and fashion lovers. Just a few days ago was the first day of fall, and we finally feel vindicated with our need to start cozy-ing up and decorating for cooler temperatures. With Paris Fashion week kicking off this week too, we’ve decided to pull together some interior design inspiration with a “French Library” flair. For our color pallet and fall cocktail mix, we turned to Hello Glow’s Sparkling Fig and Honey Cocktail.

Mix yourself up a drink, and breathe in crisp fall air with cozy neutrals and warm textiles in our Fall Cocktail Mix!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 6 figs cut into quarters
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 cup champagne
  • 1/2 cup high quality apple cider
  • 1 ounce orange liquor

 

Instructions:

1. Combine the honey, water and figs in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat and whisk continuously until the honey is melted and the figs begin to soften. Add the thyme and let simmer for an additional 10 minutes, stirring often.
2. Remove from heat and let the mixture sit for a few minutes. Remove the thyme sprigs from the honey mixture and use a food processor or immersion blender to blend the honey and figs into a smooth syrup.
3. In a small pitcher, combine the champagne, apple cider and orange liquor. Add two tablespoons of the fig syrup and stir. Pour into two glasses and garnish with extra thyme and fig slices
