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: Combining Color, & Pattern Texture

The sleek clean lines and hard edges of Modern Style tend to come off slightly cold and not as welcoming as some may desire. While this form of design tends to stay rather monochromatic and simplistic, it is never frowned upon to add a little excitement. Through the use of texture, pattern, and color this contemporary style can find perfect complementary blends.

Texture

Texture is an element of design that can easily be implemented into any space. A Kitchen or Basement Bar make for perfect examples of this. In the images below, take notice in the use of highly textured backsplash, island front, and ceiling.

Pattern

Pattern is something that can be found in numbers of different applications. A few popular uses include applying fun fabrics to lounge chairs and sofas, tile layouts in varied ways, as well as, pops of exciting wallpaper. Patterns easily spice up any room and push designs to a whole new level! See a few eclectic examples below!

Color

Color proves to be one of the easiest ways to implement greater detail and character into any space. This element of design must be used wisely, but being a little risky can sometimes allow for a larger reward. We love utilizing color through furniture pieces, accessories, and even wall paint options. See the following photos of lovely spaces done by fellow homeowners and designers.
