The Monogram Experience Center (MEC) brings designers to Louisville, Kentucky, for three-day experiences to learn about Monogram, the design process, our appliances – and even cook with them! We interviewed each designer to learn a little more about their background and design experiences.
Today’s profile highlights Brenna Krouse with K Squared Construction in Sacramento, California.
SRFD: How did you become interested in design?
Brenna: I remember as a kid, always rearranging the furniture in my room. As I got older, I loved looking at model homes. Then when I was 19, I started working in a design center for a higher end home builder and fell in love with design.
SRFD: Tell us about a recent project you really enjoyed.
Brenna: Recently, I have had the opportunity to work on the TV show, House Crashers. They are very challenging but they also allow me to have full creative authority over the project. I get to complete my vision from start to finish. My husband is a general contractor and we make a good team. I always say, “I can dream it, he can build it!”
SRFD: A trend you’re over?
Brenna: Chevron patterns!
SRFD: A trend you’re excited about?
Brenna: Wallpaper! It’s a super fun way to add color and texture!
SRFD: What did you learn in Louisville?
Brenna: I learned a lot about the higher end gas ranges! I never really paid too much attention to the differences between the brands.
