Here are 15 projects by Tiffany Brooks Interiors:
1. Colleen And Ron’s Condo
A newlywed couple, who found Chicago to settle down, found their forever home in one of the trendy neighbourhoods called Lincoln Park. They own a stunning condo and the couple was super enthusiastic about making it their home.
The dilemma that Tiffany Brooks Interiors found was that the couples’ styles were opposites. It was a tough decision between all things glamour versus traditional with a hint of comfort, as per Colleen and Ryan’s interest respectively.
Tiffany’s team incorporated playfulness and colours as seen in various elements of the dining room. They had a ball of a time making opposites attract. She says the most important thing required for couples with opposite design aesthetics is to find a common ground for inspiration and to – compromise. Her team and she turned a lack-lustre condo with Colleen’s shine and sparkle coupled with Ron’s love for all things functional, historical and comfortable.
2. 2017 HGTV Smart Home
The theme for the home was Desert modern. Tiffany was called to do this project based on her success in the 2016 version of the same show. The team visited Scottsdale, Arizona to research the project. She created the texture as seen on rocks in Arizona which is reflected on the sofa. She also used tiles on the fireplace. Copper was one of the main elements used throughout the house.
The outdoor space, she wanted to create an open multifunctional space for family time as well as parties. My idea was to bring vibrancy to the dessert with a contemporary chic feel. The other rooms include a dining room with a palm springs modern vibe to a guest room with tribal rugs, wooden elements and an orange colour theme.
3. Verda And Marty
Lake Geneva Living Room. This project was a cross between Verda’s Hollywood regency room and Marty’s Zen personality. It evokes glamour in just the right amounts. Tiffany Brooks Interiors took their overtly beige colour scheme and introduced glitter and blush pink.
The furniture was chosen in such a way as to leave enough space for Marty’s need for all things related to tranquillity and peace. It was like designing for the yin and yang of couples. They also added starburst lighting fixtures. There are touches of animal print as well in the room. The project was completed in 6 months.
4. 2016 HGTV Smart Home
This stunning home in Raleigh, North Carolina was a three-story, three thousand, two hundred square foot. Even though the house has a lot of gadgets like wireless locks and doors controlled with an app, the front of the house is very welcoming.
The porch was designed in a classy manner and the yellow chairs are an absolute contrast bringing in a vibrant ambience. There is a huge living wall, which contains succulents in the frame. It also has skylights that open with modern touches, such as in response to built-in rain detectors.
5. Molly And Patrick
A project that granted full design freedom to Tiffany Brooks Interiors. Molly initially showed Tiffany the bedroom and wanted it to be an interesting space for her to read, write and relax. The team came up with a space plan. There were three options. They found out mood boards and fabric schemes that were shown to both the husband and wife.
The trim work in the room was done in black. The bed was changed from its traditional style. There were plenty of lighting dimmers in the bedroom. Finally, the wallpaper was chosen which was very much needed to add a layer of depth and dimension to the room. It was a geometric ‘grasscloth’. The project was completed in 6.5 months.
6. Carol And John – Northshore
The clients wanted a beach house vibe. So I decided to go for a cooler colour palette. This would give the space air, open feeling. The toughest part was finding a common furniture style that had to balance the beach house aura with the hubby’s chic taste.
She was able to design a space that worked for both their sensibilities, for example, an entertainment centre furnishing kept both Carol and John in the living room more often than Tiffany Brooks Interiors reused furniture and accessories. The clients wanted a more traditional feel. The living room had seating groupings which broke up an otherwise large living room. The project was completed in 6.5 months.
7. Lisa And Charles’ Rockton Family Room
The clients had a massive space. They loved modern furniture which had warmth and comfort. The fireplace was what Tiffany based her colour palette off – the earthy orange colour. As it was one of the crucial elements for the clients, it further acted as the focal point of the design.
The team added dramatic art in the living room. Cabinets for storage, toys for the kids and library space for Lisa were important parts of the design. They were needed to reduce the clutter of the home and in keeping the space open. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in 12.5 months.
8. Rashaanda – North shore Chicago High Rise
This was an amazing 2-bedroom condo. The furniture arrangement for the entire condo was rearranged. The colour scheme was also reworked. Tiffany’s team started with the kitchen by choosing a bright colour backsplash. This instantly lifted the mood of the room.
The master bedroom furniture was custom-made. To the client’s already existing culture and art collection, few elements were added to add chicness. All the windows required treatments. The client wanted a stylish makeover that was budget-friendly as well. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in 6.5 months.
9. Kinjal And Rakesh – Woodridge
The client had an unfinished basement. This was supposed to be like a man cave for the whole family. Tiffany worked in close association with her architect to imagine and create a space for movie nights, work and play!
The kitchen was the highlight of the project as it also functioned as a bar. Tiffany designed and built a contemporary lighting fixture that was fixed over the bar. They were also able to execute a multi-level theatre room. The stage area could accommodate a 108” screen. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in 15.5 months.
10. Julie – North shore Living Room
Having known the client for 4 years, Tiffany was able to determine the style and needs of Julie. It was crucial to identify the hobbies and interests as it would help determine the kind of space that was to be designed. The client and the family were well-occupied during the weekdays and looked to come to the living room to unwind for the weekend.
Hence, they called it the “Entertaining Room”. The furniture plan was revamped, creating several seating zones. Drapery was added which was in navy colour. The client’s photography collection was chosen to adorn the wall. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in 7.5 months.
According to Tiffany, this was one of the most difficult space plans she had ever been presented with. There were space constraints, particularly near the TV area. The colour palette was changed from yellow and orange to grey.
The floor plan was an awkward one in terms of deciding where to put the TV. So, she decided to rebuild the fireplace. The team used the small faces to multifunction, by acting as storage spaces for her CDs. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in 9.5 months.
The clients hired the team to redecorate the entire lower level of her home. There was no need to change the existing furniture layout. They just needed to address the accessories and furniture. Once they removed furniture that didn’t match with the desired colour theme of sand and sea, space evolved.
They also removed all the cornices to move from the 90s style. All the windows were treated and the lighting fixtures were repainted and replaced. Some of the furniture was up-cycled. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in 5.5 months.
Lisa was very particular about the budget and colour requests. Other than that, she wanted the design to be a surprise. She wanted to change for her home and requested a mix of ethnic, purple and feminine, all in one room. Tiffany began by opening up the plan to create more space.
The walls, ceilings, etc., were repainted. The vintage tables were re-imagined by using them as end and accent pieces. A large-scale painting that is kept above her sofa, was done by Tiffany herself. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in 2.5 months.
14. Ketan and Kavita
This project was a turning point for Tiffany and her business largely depended on the success of it. This apartment owned by newly-weds Ketan and Kavita, Tiffany Brooks wanted it to turn out as amazing as her clients were.
Rewiring had to be done to hide all the wires which were out of place. They painted and updated the whole colour scheme. Next, they revised the floor plan to make it feel less claustrophobic. The team completed this project in 4.5 months.
15. Lori S North Suburb Living Room
The team started at the root of the problem, by removing the gloomy furniture. This was done by changing the upholstery along with procuring new furniture. The wallpapers were changed to match the colour scheme.
The clients wanted to get rid of the maroon colour.
They also painted the silhouettes – to bring a touch of humour. To finish off the look, the pictures, books, florals, paintings, and mirrors were added. Tiffany Brooks Interiors completed this project in less than 6 months.
