Modern Traditional – Cullen Drive

Brooke worked with this amazing client, who had great visualization from the get-go – they just wanted help bringing their ideas to life. From start to finish, Brooke collaborated with the client to select cabinet finishes, countertop selections, paint colors, furnishings, wall treatments, and window treatments. The Tiffin, Iowa, homeowner has three young children and wanted it to be functional and practical while still being beautiful. It’s safe to say this new build Modern Traditional style doesn’t lack character.

Senior Interior Designer

Brooke Mennen-Talsma

With more than seven years of comprehensive interior design experience, Brooke Mennen-Talsma maintains an eager desire to create interiors that exceed her clients’ expectations. Growing up with a homebuilder as a father, she has always been interested in the design process. Brooke graduated with an Associate of Applied Science in Interior Design degree where she fell further in love with the development of interior design.

Brooke believes creating beautiful and timeless interiors begins with understanding her client’s needs and expectations. Her main goal is to not only create a beautiful space, but one that will reflect the client’s interests, travels, and lifestyle. While her personal style leans more towards transitional, Brooke is very comfortable working in a variety of styles.

In her free time, Brooke enjoys exercising, spending time outdoors, and loving on her daughter, Amara.

Let's Work Together

Good design takes time! We value all of our clients, past, present and future. Please note that due to high demand, we currently have a 45-60 day waitlist for new clients.

The first step for new clients is to fill out this form. Once submitted, we will send you a link to our new client questionnaire.

Once you've completed the new client questionnaire, we will review your answers and be in touch within 45-60 days to schedule our initial meeting at your home. This first meeting has a flat fee of $150 and is an information-gathering session. We meet you, measure your space, take photos, review your design needs and any architectural or builder blueprints that may be available, along with your saved design inspiration images.

Following that meeting, we will be in touch with an interior design proposal that addresses your project scope and will request a deposit for design services to get your project started.
