🟠 🟠 🟠 We were fortunate to have met Brenda at a Home and Garden Show at MSU when we were in the early stages of our renovation planning. We spoke with her for just about 15 minutes and knew that she was someone we would enjoy working with. Not only was she thoughtful and patient with our many questions, but she was very open about her process and respected our desires to maintain the integrity of our very mid century house. We ended up hiring Brenda to assist with renovation/restoration of our kitchen, home office, entryway, and living and dining rooms. From that initial conversation to our discovery meeting to completing the plans for our project, Brenda and her team were very professional and so much fun to work with! Her fresh ideas and understanding of architecture saved us from ourselves on numerous occasions, without losing sight of our personal aesthetic and desires. When we are ready to tackle future reno projects, we will absolutely reach out to Brenda for her expertise and assistance! ~Erica (January 2019)🟠 🟠 🟠
