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.

Trend Watch- Green with Envy

Trend Watch- Green with Envy

I don’t know if it’s the summer weather we’ve been having here in Colorado that is beckoning us outdoors into lively parks and lush botanic gardens pulsing with life and color, or if it’s a reaction to the farmhouse white that’s been so hot in the design world right now, but we are DYING to use some vibrant green colors in whatever project we embark on next.

According to color theory, Green symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness and energy. It’s a color that evokes a sense of tranquility due to its usual occurrence in nature, yet feels uplifting and energetic. We love the richness and depth of the color green, and its applicability in almost every room in your house. Whether its adding more actual greenery through plant life, or adding a fresh coat of paint on an accent wall, or even more boldly- your kitchen cabinets, it’s easy to add this exciting and underused color to your different spaces.

Below are some photos and spaces to help inspire you to add a little green into your interiors this fresh summer season.
